Sunday breakfasts

Most days, our breakfast usually consists of oatmeal and juice, or cookie butter on bread, or cookies. The kids love cookies! Most of the time, it's cereal, like these multi-colored oatmeal stars. They're Quaker Oats Twinkles, fruit-flavored cereal made of oats, wheat and corn. Healthy and delicious!
Yes, breakfast time is also learning time!

But Sundays, Sundays! Sundays are breakfast love! Here are a few that Vince and I have prepared:
Raisin pudding. I baked this. It's really quick and easy. Just soak old bread in milk and cream and sugar, sprinkle with raisins (or chocolate chips) then bake! It's based on Nigella Lawson's chocolate
chip bread pudding recipe but no rum.

Oh, this sinful breakfast is all Vince. It's pancakes and bacon and syrup and sweet spreads. Vince sometimes makes French toast, slathers it with Nutella then tops it with crispy bacon. The combination of sweet and salty, the soft and the crunch is to die for!

This is my usual Sunday brekkie. Toast, egg, sausage, cheese. That's toast with garlic and butter. My eggs are always sunny side up sprinkled with Italian seasoning and truffle oil. The cheese is Parmesan crisps (my how-to here!). Sooo good!

Sometimes we do a big English breakfast (toast with jam, creamy scrambled eggs, grilled tomatoes, sausage and bacon). Sometimes it's Pinoy all the way with fried garlic rice, tapa or tocino or longganisa or Spam. Mmm! What's your favorite breakfast?

  1. Most of the time, we eat brekkie with rice, sanay kami na heavy start of the day pa lang. Di kaya ng tyan namin mga toasts, nagugutom na agad kaming family. Our fave is Vigan longanisa and daing na pusit :) with sukang sasa and chili flakes

  2. I looooove SUNDAYS! It's my favorite time of the week to have breakfast.

    I had a really good breakfast earlier too, all made by the boyfran. There was fried rice with egg and bacon bits, really crispy "danggit" tuyo, and with a tall glass of orange juice (with orange slices!)

  3. My husband recently discovered how I could be so good with French toasts so whenever he's home, that's what he opts to have plus some sinful oily coldcuts. But usually (that is when he's not home 'cause he's a solja boy deployed somewhere), I go for Pinoy brekkie that is just tummy-filling. My daughter loves pancakes forever! :)

  5. Just oatmeal with honey and ground flaxseed. My husband makes it for me . I have this breakfast almost every morning for 3.5 years now since my son was born. It was to stimulate my milk production. I stopped breastfeeding long time ago but I just got used to this breakfast. It has to be made by my husband. I cannot make it for myself, it just not as good... he probably put more honey than I would... for me ignorance is bliss...

  7. Hi Frances, I saw you and your little boys outside Akira in Shangri La last Saturday. I would have come over to introduce myself and say hello, but I think you were dealing with a mini-crisis then with your eldest, and didn't want to intrude! So back to an online HELLO!

    P.S. Where are the rainbow oatmeal stars from? My son Laz would love those!

    1. That was a mega-meltdown of both my kids actually. I had a meltdown myself so Vince had to take Vito away!

      The oatmeal stars are Quaker Oats Twinkles, fruit-flavored cereal made of oats, wheat and corn =) From the grocery lang!

  8. When I had a good sleep the night before, I'd make bacon, fried rice, tocino, and scrambled eggs with cheese and tomatoes! Then my husband would make green smoothies for the three of us. But when we're craving for something sweet to start the day, we just have pandesal and Lily's Peanut Butter! :D
