What's for Breakfast?

My son loves breakfast, OK, I mean who doesn't? I have been playing around with various breakfast ideas for him and came up with two really great ideas. The first can be given to young babies (just swap the adult oatmeal for baby fortified oatmeal), or can be enjoyed for a nutritious breakfast for an adult! I know these recipes are rather tropical for Thanksgiving time, but I happen to love anything that reminds me of laying on the Shore.

Mango Banana Oatmeal Smoothie
1 Mango, peeled, pitted, & chopped
1 Banana, chopped
1/2 cup of Oats
Juice of 1 Orange/formula to thin if giving to younger baby

Very simply, put all ingredients in your blender and give it a whirl!

My son ate it in his Sili Squeeze and LOVED IT!!

Please remember you can buy your child their very own Sili Squeeze at http://thesilico.com/

Now last night for dinner I decided to do breakfast for dinner, I thought that would be fun since it was just my son and I for dinner last night. I made us Orange Scented French Toast! It was delicious, I can vouch for the taste myself, and there was not a piece left on my son's plate either.

Orange Scented French Toast
4 slices bread of your choice
2 eggs
1 egg white
1/4 cup of milk
1/8 cup of orange juice
1 tsp Vanilla extract

Mix the ingredients together and let the bread soak for about 1 full minute. This gives you the time to get the pan nice and hot. Cook em up like you would french toast, a few minutes per side so they are nice and crunchy on the outside and moist and delicious on the inside. I served this with some sliced banana, but you could do any fruit you want.
