Happy Easter morning 🙂
I took the holiday as an opportunity to create a fun pancake breakfast –
I made a batch of pancakes with my Quaker Pancake Mix. The egg was decorated with pumpkin butter, blueberry preserves, 3 little pancake shapes (made with mini cookie cutters), a little Barney Butter, and craisins.
This little peep was in almond butter heaven!
With cooked apples, cinnamon and almond slivers – on top of a little pancake. (Yes, I did eat the peep – he was excellent with MaraNatha on his bottom!)
After breakfast we finished Australia. I LOVED it!!!!!!!!!!! The story, the music, the characters, the production. I love Baz Luhrmann (and Moulin Rouge) and his style. I have a special connection with Somewhere Over The Rainbow from playing Dorothy in 2nd grade, so I loved that theme. The “Mango, mango” song that Nullah sang was lovely as well, and I loved King George’s character. I agree it was a little long, but since I was enjoying the movie (and had the time), the length didn’t bother me. And hunka hunka Hugh Jackman! This was definitely my favorite movie of his.
Matt and I are going off on a romantic biking adventure that may involve a run on the greenway and a trip to the grocery store. Then it’s study time this afternoon.
Hope you are all enjoying your Easter festivities – however you choose to celebrate 🙂

That flourescent yellow duck looks so funny sitting on top of that ‘nest’ of whole nutritious foods. All about balance I suppose 😉

Love your Easter celebration breakfas, you’re so creative! I made bulgur porridge this morning, it’s a make ahead breakfast that you eat with cold milk! It was so good, I think you’d enjoy as a change-up and hope you try it out!
Funny, my husband and I watched Australia last night. We hated it!! hahaha

Kristan Anne says
Great looking breakfast! I love Peeps.
And I love your little plate. The shape of it reminds me of a bunny ear!
I know I don’t always reply to your comments, but they always make me smile 🙂
Hated it!? Really!? I guess I could understand how someone would hate it…
Yes, the bulgur porridge is def more like cold cereal – something you’d prob want to exchange for your quicker mornings on the run.
Kristin @ Iowa Girl Eats says
Awww little Peep! Love those little guys!
Peeps are gross, but maybe I would like them with almond butter. He looks like he’s sitting in a nest.
What an adorable breakfast!! I love all the peep pictures!
I loved Australia, too! Many of my colleagues didn’t , but I hold strong that it is a great flick. Glad I’ve got support!
