In years' past I made spur of the moment breakfasts - eggs and toast, breakfast tacos or egg in a nest etc. There was a day here or there that I'd prepare a breakfast casserole the night before...but I'm not that awesome all the time. ;)
This year I decided to make a weekly planner to put on the fridge of breakfasts in advance that we all choose. At the top it says "Pancakes/Oatmeal/Eggs & ??/French Toast/Breakfast Tacos". Five meals that can be varied and not boring - like oatmeal can mean a bowl of oatmeal, or oat muffins...or even oatmeal cookies I'd make the night before.

and so much more! I've used and abused this website!
So, as I said earlier, this morning I made pancakes. I plan to share other more fun ideas in the near future - like egg in a nest or frittatas and breakfast casseroles.
