Yesterday we slept in late and I decided when we woke up that I wanted a super yummy breakfast. It is rare that we sleep in and ever rarer that I can get William to eat breakfast with me. So I went all out for this one. We had (all homemade) cinnamon raisin toast, tofu scramble, and hashbrowns. We also had fruit, coffee, and orange juice. It was glorious. I had some leftovers of it for breakfast today as well and it was still just as good the next day. The cinnamon raisin bread I made the night before using our bread machine. If you choose to add it to your menu it takes about 3 hours in the machine so plan accordingly.
