The Family Table

Educating Families About the Benefits of Family Meals

Breakfast for Dinner

Egg-in-the-Hole-2

Recipe of the Week

We are frequently a family-on-the-go.  Planning a family meal has gotten more challenging this semester.  I can certainly come up with a number of excuses as to why, but that misses the point.  As we have refocused our efforts to sit down at the table, sans phones and tablets, with a healthy plate of food in front of us, things have shifted a bit.

The girls are now in middle school, and as such, both are fairly competent chefs (well, sandwiches and mac-n-cheese). We have been fortunate to have a diverse palette and often they will eat most things put in front of them.  As they are getting older, we have been trying to teach them some additional tricks in the kitchen.  One essential – a fast meal comes from eggs.  And, they work for breakfast, lunch or dinner (brinner in our house!)

Are you looking for ways to cook with your little ones, but aren’t real sure?  Try this idea from Weelicious!

Just last week, we used up the dozen we try to keep on hand. Luckily, one of our friends, who is raising her own chickens gave us a fresh dozen! While I am not brave enough to take on a mean chicken (oh the stories I’ve been told!) I certainly did enjoy breakfast with those bright-colored yolks!
