If It’s Sunday, Is It Ever Too Late For Brunch?

“Crispy Waffles with Salted Caramel Coulis”

I love waffles. Can’t you tell? Well just in case you couldn’t here is a whole slideshow of just waffles: Waffles Recipe Slideshow at Epicurious.com“.

I don’t care what time it is. If it’s a Sunday, it can be brunch!

Oversize Breakfast Biscuits

“Oversize Breakfast Biscuits”

I know the “Make Ahead” Breakfast week has passed but here are some other recipes I’ve found that can be use for future breakfasts. The biscuits pictured above, for example. Just make the dough and keep it in the fridge. In the morning, stick ’em in the oven and let them bake while getting ready to go.

Buttermilk Blueberry Breakfast Cake

“Buttermilk Blueberry Breakfast Cake” from Alexandra’s Kitchen

Like my Friday, Sunday is a pretty lazy occasion. So making this on Saturday night would be simple and would also mean that if we happen to have guests that have stayed the night, they won’t need to starve while I sit around enjoying my Sunday morning cup of freshly ground Mayorga’s coffee. I’ve had a friend stay over two weekends in a row now and she wakes up early and I don’t like eating when i first wake up so poor thing just sits there starving without telling me. But, if I have this “Buttermilk Blueberry Breakfast Cake from alexandra’s kitchen all prepared I can just stick it in the oven while we watch cartoons and she attempts to teach me the art of crocheting. I’m really not very good at it but I like having something to do with my hands and the cross stitching patterns at the craft store were really and truly awful.

Banana-Oatmeal Muffins

“Banana-Oatmeal Muffins” from Foodienarium

Saturday mornings are a bit hectic in my house. We have to wake up and be ready to leave the house by 8:30 to get out to Rockville to pick up my Gma for church and then do some backtracking and actually drive to church in time for various programming that begins at 10:00 AM. So not the best rest of the weekend but it is later than we usually leave for work/school in the mornings. I think that even though this is another muffin recipe (and I was going for no repeats) I’d be best making these “Banana-Oatmeal Muffins Recipe” from Foodienarium because it can be supplemented with other foods if people are awake early enough to prepare something or it can be eaten quickly or brought in the car to eat on the go by some of the more sleep-prone members of the family. The muffins could also be brought along to Sabbath school to help fuel the intense philosophical discussion that go on while I’m busy in the corner coloring or drawing floor plans that would allow me to have a full apartment without ever leaving home (we’re thinking of building an apartment into our basement. I’m making sure there’s a proper kitchen. No worries).

Overnight Cranberry Coffee Cake

“Overnight Cranberry Coffee Cake” from BHG.com

Thursdays are the last day that I work for the week. Since I work at an SDA institution it means that Fridays are a half day (to give people time to get ready for Sabbath). I work late on Monday nights so that I just don’t have to come in at all on Fridays. Usually this means that I stay up late or spend the time catching up on sleep but in honor of the “Make Ahead” Breakfast project I think I might be able to put this together so that on Friday morning we’ll all have something nice to eat. This also means that whenever I feel like waking up on Friday morning I won’t have to spend much time waiting for food. I can just make my first coffee of the weekend and wait for this “Overnight Cranberry Coffee Cake” to bake.

Cinnamon Swirl Bread

“Cinnamon Swirl Bread” From Family Kitchen

Wednesday night is actually my least favorite night to cook because my whole family is home with nothing to do. But it is a relatively good night (time wise) to try and make something a little more complicated like this Cinnamon Swirl Bread from Family Kitchen. While the bread is doing its little thing in the kitchen I will probably be watching “House of Cards” with my parents in the living room.

Also, there are no raisins in this recipe and I like that. I hate raisins and most cinnamon breads like this have raisins in them.
