  1. Preheat oven to 350 degree Fahrenheit 
  2. Mix together butter, eggs, sourdough discard, sugar, vanilla extract and milk. Mix until everything is nicely combined.

I recently saw a post where this mother implemented a practice where she made sure she had a quick grab snack for every morning. The thought is that when your kids get up, they can have a snack before you get the chance to making them breakfast. It helps the kids have a little something in their stomachs while it gives you a few minutes to make the actual meal that you want them to consume. Absolutely fell in love with this idea and plan. 


We have been having two hungry kids, well since the day they were born but recently it seems to be worse. I think we are about to hit some growth spurts on both of those kids. But Bentley actually openly said “mom, what about second breakfast?” To which all of our Lord of the Rings hearts absolutely loved his comment but it also made me realize this boy needs more food. To which, this came maybe 2 days after I saw this video of the mother. What wonderful timing honestly. 


So this got me to thinking that maybe we can implement that idea too. To which it fits in with my weekly restock hopes too. So in reality it is not causing me extra work, it is actually laying perfectly with what I hope to accomplish with my time. So this week we made some muffins to help fill in the morning hungries and in the fridge we have some leftover protein bites and date bites. With three options for the kids this week, I think this is a good start of snack foods to have on hand for the morning for them both. Now I just need to work on finding some more ideas on what to do for next week as well!
