Weekend Breakfast Traditions

Posted by   + Show Post

I’ve grown up watching the people around me work and work hard. My grandfather worked the orange groves of Southern California while my grandmother was a long time nurse. My father is a woodworker and my mother is a nurse as well. My husband is an attorney and I am a busy mom to two, a writer and a photographer. No matter how busy my parents and grandparents lives were during the week, the weekend always meant time for each other and big Saturday morning breakfasts.

Now that I’m grown with a family of my own, we do our best to keep the Saturday morning breakfast tradition alive, but I still look forward to Saturday mornings when visiting my parents more than any other. There’s something about waking up to the sizzle of bacon and sausage, the smell of pancakes, the clinking of silverware and the bustle of a busy kitchen. We spend all week working, running and accomplishing but when the food is on the table and everyone is seated? The week melts away and we’re all there together as a family once again.

I treasure the lazy weekend mornings we can spend together as a family no matter where we are. As busy as we are during the week being able to sit down with foods we love bring a familiarity and comfort in the midst of everything we are so busy with during the week. Naturally our weekend breakfasts must include icy cold orange juice, and Minute Maid Pure Squeezed No Pulp with its fresh, ripe orange taste tops off a delicious breakfast with my family perfectly.

Do you have a weekend breakfast tradition?

We love this time of yr. So our mornings are a lazy morning chat out on the deck with coffee. Then I go in and make a big breakfast.

My favorite weekend breakfast tradition is going out to eat!

We do not!  I did growing up, though.  We always had pancakes on Sundays.

Now, none of us are morning people . . . but we do love a fancy breakfast for dinner!

I used to have a Sunday tradition of going to WW with my mom and then out for a nice breakfast after.  We haven't done it in a really long time though.
