Wednesday and Thursday Breakfast

Yesterday's breakfast was pretty good, or so I am told. I made...

Strawberry Bars
1 cup flour
1 cup rolled oats
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1/8 tsp. salt
1/2 cup melted butter
3/4 cup strawberry jam
preheat the oven to 350 degrees
in a large bowl mix everything together except the jam, then add the butter and fold that until all the dry ingredients are wet. Measure out half the mixture and press it into the bottom of a greased 8X8 square pan. Take the jam and spread it onto the pressed mixture. Then take the other half of the mixture and press it lightly on top of the jam. Bake for 25 minutes and let it cool for 15. Cut and serve plain or with strawberry yogurt!

The kids really liked this breakfast, with the exception of Parker...he said he didn't like it until he was done then he said it was really good. I don't get him, whatever, the biggest win was Emie she ate 3 servings of it! YEA! she is our pickiest eater and she loved it with yogurt on top.

Today I made some very yummy strawberry smoothies!
Berry Banana Smoothies
1 small banana cut up and frozen
1/4 cup fresh or frozen berries (any kind, I used strawberries cause that is all I had)
1 cup orange juice
3 TBS. Vanilla yogurt
in a blender combine the frozen bananas, berries, juice and yogurt. Blend until smooth. Makes 2 8 oz. servings...I served with whipped cream on top!

The kids kept asking if we could have these smoothies everyday before school and for dinner, I am guessing they liked them. They were super easy and again it was a winner. Parker again said he didn't like it but then he said it was really good and he tried really hard to finish before we had to leave for school. I had Emie try Parkers leftovers...nope not a winner for her. I am really starting to think she hates berries. she won't eat fruit unless it is a banana or apple. I don't know what to do with her! Anyway try these they are so good!

That is good that you are feeding your kids so much fruit. I love making fruit smoothies for breakfast. I think I will have to try that strawberry bar recipe someday.
