Have you ever run out of cereal at your house?
Is your house is like mine... when that happens, it's like the entire world has come to a screeching halt!
I'm tired of buying cereal. I wanted to shake things up a bit and get a little creative with breakfast for my men.
No... nothing extravagant... just maybe some pre made on Sunday night pancakes one day,
or an super easy scone recipe I have.
Lately it's been my Cinnamon Raisin Bread that gets 'em out of bed in the morning.
I don't mind being creative... I just don't want to have to get out of bed to make stuff for them all the time.
So that's where prep comes in really handy.
Absolutely everything that can be done ahead...is. Then it isn't a drudgery to make.
So... this weeks homework is...
MAKING FLAVORED CREAM CHEESES FOR TOAST, RAISIN BREAD OR BAGELS.
Well, of course I know you can buy a tub of flavored bliss in the stores... but those containers are expensive and my kids would go through one a day! They cost almost 4 bucks a pop!
No thank you... I'll just do it myself.
So... might I suggest you purchase a large block of cream cheese from either Costco or Smart n Final. WWWAAAAYYY cheaper than the little 8 oz. things. It's either 2 bucks for 8 oz, or you can spend 6 bucks for 48 oz.
Let it sit out for about 20 minutes to take the chill off, and cut 4 oz blocks for each flavor.
I like to use my PC Prep Bowl Set for storing the mixed cheese.
Then just mix away.
Brown sugar and cinnamon
Fresh strawberry preserves
Onion and Chives
Fresh Chopped Veggies and Dill
THE SKY IS THE LIMIT!
My favorite mix in? Sweet/Hot Chili Sauce from Trader Joes!
