Li'l Griddles from Aunt Jemima's-1

As a homeschooling, work at home mom, I certainly have the option of cooking a good, traditional breakfast for my kids.

Sorry to shatter the illusion, but it doesn’t usually happen.

My husband would rather sleep than eat and I get up to work and prepare for the day and usually wait to eat until later.

Once the kids are old enough to fix their own breakfast I am more than willing to let them! They may choose to prepare something substantial (bagels or english muffins with eggs) or go for the old standards, cereal or toast.

Let’s face it. Even as a stay at home mom, there are days filled with appointments and activities and cooking breakfast is just one more thing on the to do list. I love that Aunt Jemima frozen breakfast takes great pride in making frozen pancakes, waffles and French toast just like moms across America make in their own kitchens – their griddles are just a little bit bigger!

Every batch is made from scratch with real ingredients like eggs, milk and sugar. And even though we are homeschoolers I still appreciate a warm breakfast in the morning for my kids to help start the school day right.

My youngest two children still at home loved having prepared pancakes to grab out of the freezer. We tried the blueberry mini pancakes (with and without syrup) and they were delicious. Plus, my teenage son was thrilled he could have a bunch since they were minis! You know how some teenager boys are. Eating the most pancakes (or pizza or donuts or whatever) is a competition!

One of my go to meals for dinners is breakfast and I can easily see enjoying some Aunt Jemima pancakes or waffles with our omelettes in a bag.

  1. We have similar breakfast issues at our house, although I must admit I enjoy making big breakfasts on the weekends. Our home schooling always comes first, food is sort of an after thought in the morning. I have enjoyed reading your blog, it’s funny, so many times when I find a new blog that I love, it’s written by another great home schooling mom!

    1. Thanks so much, Jessica, for leaving a comment on my breakfast and homeschooling post. We like a big breakfast but at night instead of in the morning. I appreciate having another homeschooling mom take the time to leave a comment! I know you’re busy, too!

  2. So glad to know I’m not the only one who doesn’t stand at the stove and cook hot breakfasts each day even though my kids would LOVE it. I’m like Jessica, I save my big breakfasts for the weekends.
