It’s completely dark and you’ve been awake since five, since the guys at the loading dock next door began slinging around large pieces of metal for no good reason. Stevie Wonder comes on and that means it’s time to get everyone up and out the door. The efficient family unit can pull this off inside twenty minutes on a good day and this recipe for quick breakfast wraps with candied bacon is the perfect way to get everyone’s morning started right.
Make these the night before and wrap them individually so you’ll have breakfast ready every day of the week. You’ve got enough to worry about, like lost back packs and tangled bangs. When school and work begin so early in the morning, everyone likes to get that extra bit of sleep. If the morning routine can be as quick and efficient as possible, then everyone gets to enjoy a few more minutes of beauty sleep. If people are sluggish and confused, then we all have to get up earlier so as not to have those issues. Let’s be smart people.
Tips For A Stress Free Morning
- Set out clothes the night before: My son, like me, will would wear the first thing he pulled out of the drawer. The girl, however, routinely needed considerable more time to prepare her ensemble. Make sure all the school outfits have been decided upon and are sitting out the night before. You don’t want to be surprised by an unexpected stain. Big time saver.
- Have a routine: The alarm goes off and you turn on the kids’ light. That is their sign that it’s time to get ready. The includes getting dressed, combing the hair and gathering school stuffs. No day should be different from the next. Nobody wants to get up but that’s what we do. Give yourself some time to help your daughter with her hair. That’s a gift every parent should get to enjoy for a short while.
- Have things ready to go: Put backpacks by the door with any thing that needs to go. It’s silly looking for something when it’s time to hit the road. Homework has been checked and materials are packed and ready to go. By thinking ahead and getting everything where it needs to be, there’s less stress and more fun.
- Make breakfast before: This recipe for quick breakfast wraps with candied bacon are made ahead and individually wrapped so each morning you can toss a few in the microwave and enjoy then on the way. Make them good enough and your kids will be asking to have the for lunch as well.
If it’s Saturday or you’re retired so you have extra time, try something a little funky. When in doubt, turn to nailtravels home recipes for ultimate success. This month’s specials are Ma Roux’s Homemade Biscuits and Nicaraguan cream sauce. Get those down and we’ll talk about entrees.
