About 2 years ago, we started a modest, albeit VERY popular, family tradition....Backwards Dinner Fridays. For my eldest (who is a bit of a finicky eater), breakfast is the quintessential meal. He would eat breakfast food all day long if he could. His favorite? Pancakes and eggs with cheese! It's been that way since he was about 18 months (still holds true today at age 5!).
As a result, each and every Friday, our dinners are done "backwards" style with breakfast food as the main course and dinner fare abandoned for the evening (never fear...they still get breakfast at breakfast time...BIG bonus for them!). It also happens to be a big bonus for mommy! I don't know what it is about breakfast food, but it makes cooking a BREEZE, which is very appreciated now as I sit 38 1/2 weeks pregnant and very low on energy!
Sooooo, the next time your feeling a little low on the cooking juices or simply want a fun treat for the family, try a little "Backwards Dinner"!
