At the end of some days you just want to put on your pajamas and forget about the day you just had. Since there is no such thing as a do-over when it comes to crazy days, you can erase the day with a casual family meal: breakfast for dinner. On crazy busy or stressful days the last thing you want to think about is planning dinner. If you had foresight you might have put something in the slow cooker, but hindsight is 20/20. Instead, put on your pajamas and make breakfast.
Breakfast for dinner is a good thing for lazy weekend evenings too. Making eggs, pancakes, waffles or omelets for dinner can be a quick and easy way to feed the family. Dressing in PJs or robes makes the casual meal feel more special and then you can hop on the couch to watch a movie with the family.
Breakfast at any time of the day is a good way to involve kids in making the meal. They can crack eggs or mix batter. Scrambling eggs is a basic skill that can be mastered at a young age. Kids can help pour out the pancakes and flip them too. Getting kids interested in cooking is a good life skill.
If you have little ones in the kitchen, get a sturdy kitchen stool to help them reach the counters. For any stools or furniture that will move around the kitchen make sure the feet won’t scratch your wood floor or mark your tile or vinyl floor. Adding furniture pads to the feet is a quick and easy way to protect your floors.
