My father hates standing in line. He refuses to go to some church buffets because there will be a big line. He will go to lunch early at the cafe to avoid any hint of a line. And he will generally not go to weddings or funerals because heaven forbid there might be a receiving line. 

I used to think that perhaps he just hates talking to people. After all that's what you do standing in line. But he is an affable guy and can strike up a conversation with anybody. I finally realized that it wasn't standing in lines that he hates, it's that he hates wasting time.

Feeding children can be a lot like standing in line. You can spend hours on planning, shopping, preparation, cooking, and serving. The kids devour it in less than ten minutes and run off with their friends leaving you with more than just dirty dishes - that wasting time guilt.

So to assuage my guilt I devised a number of quick meals with quality ingredients. They can be prepared quickly, are colorful and flavorful, and you can spend less time over the stove and more with your children. Here is the first in many no more standing in line breakfasts!
  • Spray Oil or Butter
  • 2-3 Bananas, Sliced
  • 1 Can Drained Pineapple Chunks
  • 1 Package Turkey Sausage Links
  • 1/4 Cup Water
  • Maple Syrup
  • 1 Cup Raspberries

  1. Heat a nonstick pan on medium high heat, spray with oil, and add the sausage. 
  2. Add the water to the pan, cover and cook thoroughly.
  3. Heat a second nonstick pan on medium high heat; spray with oil. (You could use butter, but it will add calories.)
  4. Place the pineapple and the bananas in the pan and grill.
  5. Once the fruit is dark brown on one side, turn it over. This will go quickly.
  6. Remove from heat and plate the fruit and sausage.
  7. Top with raspberries and a drizzle of maple syrup.

You could top with jam instead of maple syrup for a variety of options.

I don't know if it's just me, but I prefer heavy breakfast more than anything else. They say that we need to welcome a day with a happy tummy, that is why I believe that eating heavy breakfast is a must and a healthy practice at the same time. I love the idea you are implying here. I also prefer fruits on my breakfast because that balances everything! By the way, I am hoping that you will have more breakfast session with your daughter. You seem so close with her!
