Breakfast In Bed

One of my favorite things about holiday get-togethers is that you can justify making a lot of recipes that you otherwise wouldn't want to have hanging around the house as leftovers.

Often times I stumble upon great splurge-worthy recipes for breakfast and brunch items, but it would be downright dangerous to make these recipes for our little family of two.  We'd end up with lots of leftovers tempting us ... "come on April, you know you want a cheesy, gooey, bacon-topped biscuit for breakfast this Tuesday morning, riiiiiight?"  And then the whole day is shot.  Because once you have that for breakfast, you're eating pepperoni pizza and cheese fries for lunch.  Or maybe that's just me.  :)

So, for now I will aim to stick to my healthier plan of sliced fruit or smoothies for weekday breakfasts.  And when the time comes to select a recipe for a work get-together or a holiday gathering with family members, I can whip out the recipes I really want to make!

Here are some recipes from my Breakfast In Bed board on Pinterest that I'd like to attempt this season:

  5. In my family, a quiche or Monkey Bread is our go-to for larger breakfast meals. We always do waffles from scratch anytime we are together on a Sunday (ROUND waffle iron, required!). Yummy.

  6. We were discussing our Christmas morning breakfast on our way home from Charlotte as this will be our first Christmas morning on our own (squee!), and I said, "if you can't splurge on Christmas morning, when can you?" I only eat cinnamon rolls once a year. So Christmas morning we'll be indulging in homemade cinnamon rolls. Now if I can just figure out how to let the yeast rise for about 4 hours but still eat at 9am.....

  7. I reserve breakfast casseroles for holiday weekends too.
    Never any other time. I have got to get back on the ball in eating right once I get this baby out of me.
    I've gotten so slack.
