Yummy Breakfasts!

I made some Rhubarb Cream Coffeecake for breakfast today. It was sooooooo good. Andy had to get out of the house this morning before it was going to be done, so he'll have to wait until he gets home to enjoy some. He normally would not have had to leave so early, but they are doing some bridge work on the interstate, makinig it go down to one lane. So, he had to plan ahead to get to early morning meeting.

I figured if I wanted to enjoy any rhubarb this season I better make some stuff soon, otherwise I might not have the time to actually make something with it. Because if you are cooking with rhubarb, then you are cooking from scratch.

I also made 4 mini loaves of Rhubarb Bread. They are cooling right now and when they are finished cooking I will wrap them and freeze them, so that later on I can take them out and we have some homemade breakfast when we don't have time to be making food that take much more effort than cereal (which by the way I am completly stocked up on, as Andy LOVES cereal.)

And I didn't stop there. I made the batter for Raisin Bran Muffins. I think the recipe for that is on here somewhere. It's a muffin batter mix that you have to make up at least 24 hours in advance, but will keep for up to 6 weeks, and you just take out what you need. So, you can have fresh muffins in just cooking time. I only made a half batch. I was thinking of making a full batch, but I only had enough raisin bran for 1/2 batch, which is still pretty big. I know I could have used a different cereal, but I didn't want to.

Now, time to rest while things cool, dishes & clothes are being washed.
