Monday mornings are always a bit hectic for us as my oldest son has to be to school early for Orchestra practice.  Combine that with the fact that both boys usually have hockey and/or football after school and Mondays are busy for me at the studio and, well…things can be a little challenging.  Now that we are a few months into school I’ve learned that it works best for me to plan ahead and make things as easy as possible for us to get out the door on time on Mondays.  Over the weekend I’ll mix up a batch of muffins, donuts, sweet bread, etc…  things that are easy for the boys to grab and eat as they are running out the door.  Today for example, I served pumpkin mini donuts that I baked the last time I made pumpkin bread.  I simply doubled the recipe and made two mini loaves of pumpkin bread and a dozen mini donuts.  These are great to stick in the freezer or fridge so they are ready to go on those busy mornings.

Today’s breakfast includes pumpkin mini donuts (click on the link to see the recipe) and “chocolate milk”.
