Ps 91 (NKJV)

3 Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler, and from the perilous pestilence.4 He shall cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler.5 You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, nor of the arrow that flies by day,6 nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.

1/20 ramblings - breakfast


I should have used this for my B post earlier this week, but it didn't occur to me then.

We are having breakfast troubles. Cereal everyday for my family of nine is not cost effective. We save it for weekends. For years we have been eating bagels for breakfast, but now their prices are rising as well.

What other options are there that are easy enough for a seven year old to make, but filling enough for teenage boys?

My thoughts: premade waffles, instant oatmeal, and eggs - that's it. I'm clueluess.

HELP!  :)



  1. Breakfast is a great B word. I'd probably go with the oatmeal. It's quick, reasonably priced, filling, and you can add things to make it even better for you. (Nuts, dried fruit etc.) I love it and have it fairly often (especially in the winter), although I usually fix the old-fashioned type instead of the instant. (Still takes only a couple of minutes in the microwave)

  2. Biscuits and sausage gravy. Made ahead, if necessary, and simply reheated. Very filling and loved by teenage boys.
    Grits are an alternative to oatmeal. If they'll eat yogurt, it's very cost-effective to make it in the crockpot and then add fruit or honey to sweeten it up.


I hope you have been blessed by my blog. Thank you for your comments.
