If there is one thing I totally love about summer vacation, it is the fact that I do not have to be deep into stirring a soup or a dish in my kitchen in the wee hours of the morning just so I can feed an army of school children (which are just quite a handful in actuality, two). Don’t get me wrong I love cooking for my kids and I go the whole nine yards to keep them well-fed and nourished. But summer vacation is just another ripe opportunity to hang the apron a little bit longer and sleep in for another few hours.
Whenever any of my kids wake up earlier than I do, they can always fix one of those easy-to-make breakfast meals that I make sure I have in the ref and the pantry aplenty – eggs, cereals, pancakes, sandwiches or chocolate and biscuits and fresh fruits and juices. They can easily prepare their own breakfast as quickly as sending flowers online, and mom can buy more time in the sheets.
Breakfast as they say is the most important meal of the day and if you are a mom who has school-age children you would probably find yourself, with your apron on and a soup ladle in one hand, working early in your kitchen, just so you can serve breakfast to your boys just before they leave for school. The breakfast meals you serve to your family may actually depend greatly on how much time you have got in your hands to prepare them. Some moms may have all the time in world and can serve delicious beluga caviar on toast for breakfast every single day. And then there are some who have to go to work themselves, too, or are doing stay-at-home works that you will probably find them tinkering with their computer before everyone else’s day starts, that they will only manage to serve oatmeal, or cereals and milk. No matter, no meal paled in comparison against the others as long as they are prepared with love and with your children’s health and well-being in mind. So bring out those milk cartons and fry those eggs, in your special heart-shaped pan, if you may, and let us have breakfast!
One of hubby’s staff gave him some “pasulubong” from Tacloban City. He was looking for rechargeable aa batteries at the stockroom and when he returned to his room he saw these delectable Pinoy Food on his table. Tuyo or dried fish is one of hubby’s favorite breakfast meal paired with fried rice with crispy fried garlic and chili vinegar as dipping sauce. The staff also gave him this yummy binagol.
