Scramble 1Since Little A is STILL. NOT. SLEEPING.

(Pause for a long, deep sigh.)

my hubby is the one who preps breakfast for the bigs on most days.

But, this Saturday, he crawled into bed after one in the morning following a very long day of work.  So, despite a crazy night of not-sleeping, I was the one on kitchen duty.

If mama’s in the kitchen for brekkie, you can bet the kiddos are going to see a vegetable.

I mean, who wouldn’t want to have a veggie under their belt first thing in the morning?

But, the kids were hungry little hippos, so I didn’t have time to do a frittata, which is the ideal vegetable-delivery-device at breakfast.  Instead, I did a kind of deconstructed frittata scramble and paired it with a Vitamin C-rich smoothie … it being cold and flu season and all.

My only misstep was in assuming Little A would eat a toddler sized portion.  Translation: I should have doubled the recipe.
