Ah, Monday. A sure-fire sign that another weekend has come and gone. As a mom, my weekends look a lot like my weekdays, only with a little less school work, a lot more activity, and a Bacon Slayer home to help wrangle our circus through it all.
Perhaps my favorite part of the weekends is the brunches that happen. While I try to cook a hot breakfast everyday during the week, my lack of enthusiasm in the early morning pairs with an ever-mounting To Do List that to suck the will to venture much beyond make ahead breakfasts like baked oatmeal, or 5 minute preparation situations such as blueberry protein pancakes right out of me.
But on the weekend? The weekend brings with it the ability to sleep past 6 a.m.! My world seems to have so much more possibility after 6 a.m.! The extra sleep brings with it the energy and drive to tackle bigger breakfasts. Bigger, more delicious breakfasts to fuel up for a busy day. After the luxury of sleeping in, I crave breakfasts with serious staying power to keep us going long into the afternoon.
I often think of my farming friends when I want to complain about an early wake up call. I know that my coveted post-6 a.m. wake up time is a serious luxury in the world of agriculture. In fact, I’m confident that my friends who farm do more by lunch than most of us do all day. I know that my friend Katie of NuDream Dairy is well on her way through morning chores and milking cows before I even get up in the morning. That’s a lot of calories burned before sunrise! I think a hearty breakfast like this Farmers Omelet would hit the spot after a few hours spent in the barn, don’t you?
Given that I’ve likely planned for us to plant an orchard in between multiple graduation parties or something equally ridiculous on any given weekend, we could use a Farmers Omelet, too. We definitely need a hearty breakfast to keep us going!
This Farmers Omelet wraps diced sweet red peppers, sweet onion, hash browns, Canadian bacon, and cheese in fluffy eggs for a hearty breakfast with serious staying power that keeps us going all morning long. With a balanced breakfast like this under our belts, we’re sure to get that orchard planted, hit those graduation parties, and have time to spare to build the raised garden beds!
Maybe we’ll just enjoy a filling breakfast and then kick the soccer ball around before heading to the beach? Either way, we’ll be full and ready to take on the day.
Eat a Farmers Omelet and have the energy to take on the day!
