Before the Chiplet, we definitely started doing brunch more often. K runs everyday, and he doesn’t eat before his workout so is ready for a nice breakfast in the late morning. The Fudgelet and I will eat breakfast before my workout (where he often joins me) and then are ready for lunch in the late morning. Since our breakfasts are usually simple, we are fine with anything for lunch from burgers to scrambled eggs.
We didn’t have good luck with parent days this year. For Father’s Day weekend, K was getting over a bad cold. For Mother’s Day weekend, I had an awful stomach bug that made me nauseated and weak for a long weekend. I had planned on making this for my Mother’s Day meal and felt recovered enough to eat it on the day before. K was taking the Fudgelet to the mall for the morning, so I was able to get some stuff done around the house, and take my time prepping this for lunch, which was great. I could only eat one slice because it is rich and I was still barely eating food, but it was delicious.
Recently, I haven’t had much of a chance to make breakfast for K, and I miss this. It was fun to do on the mornings when he had a little extra time. While he showered, I would make something as a surprise. Then, we could eat together before he had to race off for his work day. On weekends, I didn’t really have to rush at all, so those were even easier. Now, there are no “sleeping in” days, and no mornings where we aren’t both rushing around. If K has extra time, he is going to use it playing with the Fudgelet since he doesn’t get to see him the rest of the day (except for a diaper change at night, woooo fun times–haha).
