My own version of breakfast for the boys

Some of you should know that I'm a really lousy cook.... haha.... :D
Recently, I see that the boys are losing interest in the breakfast my maid prepares for them.
I thought it is time I step in to get some hands on...

Slowly, I started to get interested in preparing breakfast & supper for the boys, esp delighted on seeing that they enjoyed eating what I prepared & finished ALL. That's so encouraging to me !!

Here are a few dishes I made for the past occassions. Sorry if the art work is a bit "rough"... I'm still in the midst of polishing .... *blush*

Cranberry Jam in between bread cut into cute shapes


Sausages with cheese fillings, bread in a variety of shapes & party cheese cubes


Mini Pancake with Blueberry Jam, Ham & Cheese

Zac finished all the cheese (he doesn't really like cheese unless it is baked) by cutting them into small slices & decorating them.


Bread with cranberry jam & cheese in all sorts of shapes. They looked cute & palatable (as least to my boys.....hehe)


Egg Pizza with Ham, Parmesan cheese, tomato sauce & bread cubes.

I'm surprised that Zac actually finished all which comprises of 2 eggs. He must be starving while waiting for the slow mama at work in the kitchen.... wahahahaha :D

Now I understand why my mum always look satisfied when we commented that her cooking is terrific & finish even the last grain of rice. Its just a JOY seeing your kids gobbling up your home prepared food :)

59 Hugs for Amos & Zac:
