Breakfast Pizzazz

My seven-year-old surprised us all with breakfast yesterday.  My husband and I were still attempting sleep as she burst in and handed each of us a bowl of milk with some soggy Grape-Nut Flakes.

Minutes later, Evie giddily skipped in and showed us the breakfast Dani had made for her.  I snapped a quick photo.

“Maw-um, hand me my breakfast!”

Evie devoured, then licked, the entire plate and declared it… “Good.”

Grumpy Grateful Mom Goal of the Day:  Helping my sous chef serve fruit for breakfast today.


  1. It does look very gourmet-ly organized! Um, is it fishies and peanut butter on a pancake? With maple syrup, and chocolate on the side? The green stuff is throwing me… sprinkles?

  2. Grumpy Grateful Mom says:

    No pancake–it's actually a tortilla. But, I've been informed the recipe is top secret. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Mom of 12 says:

    Looks pretty interesting…the loaves and the fishes? What a talented girl you have!

  4. says:

    LOL. That looks so gross. At least your little one liked it. tee-hee

  5. MormonGirl123 says:

    I love how she matched the food with the plate (rainbow goldfish with the rainbow plate). But, sorry Dani, that does look really nasty.

  6. Jessica says:

    Hmmm…tortilla with goldfish for breakfast. At least you got the soggy Grape Nut Flakes.

  7. Kids will eat anything!! So sweet that she "made" it herself ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. MommaKiss says:

    Erm. What's the thing that looks like swiped poo on the edge?

    Come on, everyone else was wondering!

  9. Jennifer says:

    So funny and sweet! This post makes me extra thankful for the non soggy bowl of Life that I ate this morning for breakfast!

  10. mrsmarkdave says:

    Looks delish. Better than my breakfast, that's for sure.

  11. An Irish Italian Blessing says:

    That is really really sweet. What exactly is on that plate? I recognize the goldfish and that's about it ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. That is priceless!! I bet it was the best breakfast you ever had!! I love that she served you and your husband breakfast in bed!! Too cute!! Those are really the moments that make it all worth it, isn't it?!

  13. Saunders Crew says:

    awww….how considerate and grown up of them to do that, but i think cooking school is in their future or maybe they could go on the next food network star!

    My 7 year old would totally make and eat that.

  15. Branson says:

    I love the fancy technique and chocolate smear garnish, lol

  16. A masterchef in the making there. They are special moments when they take another step towards some independance and make something to give or share – lovely.
