Favorite Summer Breakfast Recipes

Pin It PIN IT!

Let me begin this post with a moving update.

It’s going to be 100 degrees today. I wish I was kidding. You know what makes this worse? Our entire house is still in boxes and for some silly reason, the air conditioning refuses to work in the upstairs, so we’ve been forced to sleep on the pull-out in the man cave (basement). Granted, it’s really nice and cool down there, but the pull-out is awful. The mattress is way too firm and thin and there’s giant bars that stab you in the back. Remember in Seinfeld when Elaine broke her back on a pull out? Yeah, I’m quickly approaching that.  So we tried shutting the vents in the basement in hopes that would force the air to cool the upstairs. Because I miss my big, comfy bed. And I have my adorable new sheets and comforter set on it (see below).

Super cute, right? I’m going with a black, grey and white motif in the bedroom with splashes of red.  So basically to sum up this moving re-cap: it’s really hot, I want to sleep in my bed, I love my comforter set.

Let’s move on to yummy food stuff now 🙂

I don’t have any new fabulous recipes to share yet, but I thought I’d share a few of my all-time favorite easy breakfast foods. Ya’ll know breakfast is the most important meal of the day, right? Of course you do. However, when it’s the dead of summer and it’s already 89 degrees by 8am, I’m not going to eat oatmeal or a hot breakfast sandwich (which are my go-to’s). Instead, I’m going to enjoy one of the delicious, light and cool recipes below! They are all amazing and most can be made the night before. Talk about grab and go!

Strawberry Cheesecake Muffins

Whole Wheat Peanut Butter Bread

Apple Pie Smoothie

Lemon Blueberry Loaf

Fruit Salad

Oatmeal Raisin Muffins

Veggie and Cheese Omelet

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Loaf

With delicious options like these, you have no excuses for skipping this important meal!
