Some people cringe at the thought of meal preparation, but it may be a lifesaver for moms! Try these tips the night before and you'll be surprised at how much of a difference they'll make in your mornings.
Make Sandwiches in Quantity and Freeze Them Over the Weekend
This works wonderfully with cream cheese sandwiches as well as peanut butter and jam sandwiches made with toast bread. All you have to do is put them in your children's lunchboxes, and they will warm up in time for their lunch break while keeping the lunchbox cool.
Make Breakfast Ahead of Time.
When it comes to breakfast, the night is your friend, and there are so many recipes that you can create the night before and just serve the next morning. Make overnight oats (substitute Cream Cheese Spread for yogurt for a creamier delight), pancakes, baked oatmeal, or chia pudding.
Bake Eggs in a Muffin Tray
Rather than boiling a few eggs at a time every morning, use your oven to cook 12 eggs at once. They need less attention, allowing you to multitask during the cooking process. Once the eggs are cooked, you'll have enough for a week's supply of eggs.
Prepare granola bowls over the weekend
Breakfast in granola bowls is ideal. Make these ahead of time and fill them with yogurt, Swiss Premium cream cheese, or milk, and your favorite fruit in the morning.
Make pancakes in a muffin tray.
Every child enjoys pancakes, but who has the time to make them on school mornings? When you prepare pancakes over the weekend, change the recipe and bake one half in a mini muffin tin. Store in the fridge for three days or the freezer for up to three months.
Hard Boil Eggs Before in Quantity
Eggs kept in the refrigerator for 5-7 days are really useful (make sandwiches, and quick breakfast on the go, the best topping for a salad dipped in delicious cream cheese simply added to lunchboxes).
Make use of stale bread
Stale sandwich bread is a problem that comes with the start of the school year. Instead of throwing it out, create croutons, breadcrumbs, French toast, or bread pudding with it. You can also toast it in the oven after cutting it into thin slices and spraying it with olive oil and your preferred herb/spice mix. You will get your very own homemade crackers. Serve with Cream Cheese Spread for a delicious breakfast or after-school snack.
Once you put your thinking hat on, there are many creative ways to make the best snacks!
