Easy Make Ahead Breakfast
Are you a meal planner? I haven’t always been a great meal planner, but I’m getting better at it! Especially when there’s company.
Here’s why it’s important (for me)… anytime I walk in the store – whether it’s for one item or five, I will spend no less than $50 bucks. And if I have a list then the price really goes up!
Have you ever had groceries delivered? That’s a great way to keep me out of the grocery store. Some people say that it’s expensive. I say keeping me out of the grocery store saves $’s.
Can anyone else relate?
Please tell me I’m not alone!

Reheating and Food Storage Tips
- Granola – store in ziplock bags, squeezing the air out of the bags. Store in the refrigerator. Surprisingly granola will keep better in the freezer than the pantry!
- How to reheat quick breads: Slice them before freezing and wrap individually, then put them in a ziplock bag, squeezing out excess air. I recommend dropping sliced bread into the toaster for reheating.
- Reheating egg muffins: Best to defrost at room temperature and then microwave to reheat. Don’t over-do it or they will get tough and chewy.
- Reheating pancakes and waffles: Waffles also reheat best in the toaster! Pancakes I suggest microwaving to reheat, again being careful not to over-do it.
