I am going to enter a new phase as a mom. For the first time in 14 years, I have only a preschooler at home. It will be just our youngest, Caleb and myself as we tackle his preschool work together. I also have one in grade school, one in middle school and one in high school. Oh boy.
I feel our year is going to be packed with activities, homework, busyness and a lot of driving. I enjoy my crazy busy life; though I have to admit I am a little overwhelmed right now!
I need easy breakfast and lunch ideas to help my day run smoother. There are some days where complicated menus would not be helpful, at all! I do, of course, want the meals to be filling for my family and to be high in protein. They need energy to help them get through the school day and all of their extracurricular activities. As a mom, a great tasting, balanced meal is so important for my children.
Jimmy Dean® Frozen is a complete and satisfying breakfast in 3 minutes or less. Mornings are so rushed trying to get everyone out the door so a quick and easy breakfast is appreciated. The Jimmy Dean® Frozen 4 ct Croissant Sausage Egg Cheese is a favorite of our children!
When putting together a school lunch, I like it to be delicious, simple and kid friendly. You know, the ones were the other kids think my kids have the best mom. 🙂 Hillshire Farm® Naturals have a great slow roasted turkey that adds flavor and variety to any lunch box. Pair the slow roasted turkey sandwich with a banana blueberry mini muffin and you have a great lunch!
When I went shopping at Meijer, I picked up the Hillshire Farm® Naturals slow roasted turkey and the Jimmy Dean® Frozen 4 ct Croissant Sausage Egg Cheese. I also picked up the ingredients I needed to make banana blueberry mini muffins which are perfect to eat for breakfast or pack in a lunch.
Easy Breakfast And Lunch Idea: Banana Blueberry Muffins
Making the banana blueberries muffins is easy to do.
First I mixed the butter and sugar
Then I added the eggs, bananas, water and dry ingredients
I mixed in the blueberries and scooped the muffin mixture into my mini muffin pans
When making a school lunch, these muffins go great with the Hillshire Farms® Slow Roasted Turkey. I put the turkey meat on a homemade yeast roll which my children enjoy.
Hillshire Farm® Naturals is an all natural lunchmeat with the delicious taste you want to come back to. It makes for a well rounded lunch!
Of course, the banana blueberry muffins will go great for breakfast as well.
What a great breakfast–the banana blueberry muffins with Jimmy Dean® Croissant Sausage Egg Cheese which is made from real ingredients-eggs, sausage, and cheese.
