Cinnamon Toast w/ milk - (Breakfast - Day 8)

Tuesday, April 20, 2010

Wow. It's day 8. Crazy. I am currently without a camera, so, no pics for now but I'm going to keep blogging away. It's really the only thing keeping me to this challenge (well, that and the overall health of my children of course).

Breakfast this morning was cinnamon toast. It's one of my kiddos favorite. I usually take about 2 tbsp of butter and mix in a little cinnamon and sugar then put it on the toast. In order to make this a little healthier I spread just a small amount of butter on the toast and then sprinkled cinnamon and sugar on it. They didn't complain. It really tasted about the same.
