Hi guys!

I have the perfect weekend breakfast for you!

This is also the kind of thing that I like to make for holidays mornings because it can be prepped the night before and then there’s no fussing about breakfast the next morning when you have a million other things going on.

Hey guys, how was the long weekend?

I did nothing all weekend. And by nothing I mean that I decided to rewatch Jane the Virgin and somehow made it through 2 1/2 season in 3 days.

Granted, I tend to just leave it on and walk away for hours at a time but still.

I always go back to that show when I’m super stressed because it’s funny and ridiculous and I just love it.

I did escape to my favorite trail with the husky (Good Water Loop in Georgetown) because I just really needed it to not see another human for a few hours.

I listened to a couple of my favorite podcasts, fell in the mud twice, and then stood under the waterfall before doing the 3 miles back to the car in wet shoes.

It was exactly what I needed.

Okay guys, it’s the first day back in real life for us. The kids have to go to school. I have to pretend like I’m cleaning the house all day and not watching CNN while I lay in bed. The usual.

My kids actually just got back from their dad’s house on Sunday night – they were gone for, like, 10 or 11 days. I didn’t go to the grocery store a single time they were gone. Our fridge is bare. Like, totally bare.

There’s literally just leftover pho, half a carton of cashew milk, and 2 limes.

And if you know me at all you know there’s not a chance in heck that I’m going to the grocery store with all 3 boys.

No.

Nope.

Not happening ever.

So I made a loaf of bread for sandwiches, cookies for lunchboxes, and these Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins for breakfast.

I had a dream about Banana Cream Pie last week.

Seriously, pie.

I had a dream about pie.

This is my life.

Clearly, I had to make a banana cream pie after that. Because once the idea was in my head, it wasn’t leaving.

Happy Monday!

How’s the time change treating you?

Won’t lie, I slept until 9:42 yesterday morning. Can we talk about how awesome it is to have kids that can pour their own cereal and entertain themselves for a little while? I feel for all of you with tiny ones.

It was also really nice to have daylight for so long! It was almost 8 by the time the sun finally faded. You know what that means? Food bloggers are no longer cooking dinner at 2 pm! Yay sunlight!

Like I mentioned this weekend, the kids are officially on Spring Break and I’m officially not leaving the house until it’s over.

(Don’t judge me – you try going anywhere with 3 boys!)

So in an effort to avoid the grocery store, I have breakfast for dinner planned for several nights this week. And these Peanut Butter Banana Pancakes are definitely on the menu! They use ingredients I always have on hang, they take no time at all to cook up, and my kids are obsessed with them.

I mean, what’s not to love about peanut butter and bananas?
