Kellogg's, Week Eight: Weekend Mornings, and a $100 Visa Gift Card Giveaway

This is sponsored content by BlogHer and Kellogg's.



This is the eighth of twelve weekly posts sponsored by BlogHer and Kellogg's. EACH POST will have its own $100 gift card giveaway. The plan is to have each giveaway start on Tuesday and run until the following Monday.

This week's topic is Weekend Mornings: How do they differ from weekday mornings? And does your family have any breakfasts they make together?

Weekend mornings aren't much different at our house. I'm usually in my pajamas while making it, and it's more common for us to eat in shifts since the big kids are allowed to sleep in, but otherwise it's the same: five cups, five bowls or five plates, five vitamins, five muffins or five bowls of cereal. And then me trying to get out of the room with my coffee.

The kids do like to help make muffins, and in fact sometimes I make the muffins in the evenings after their bedtimes just to cut down on the number of sous chefs.

Edward stirs the wet ingredients; Elizabeth stirs the dry


Three of the five can help make cereal without getting more cereal on the floor than is worth it for me, and the other two can help carrying things to the table.


To enter the giveaway, leave a comment on this post by Monday, October 4, 2010 about either (1) how your weekend mornings differ from weekday ones or (2) what breakfasts your family makes together. Entrants must be U.S. residents at least 18 years old. One entry per post per person. To get an additional entry, blog or tweet the contest and then leave a comment with a link to the post or tweet.

For the complete rules, see The Complete Rules, Week Eight.

Mom’s Breakfast Club was started to help educate moms and families about kids’ cereal and share the scoop on their nutritional benefits and ingredients. To learn more about the program, visit www.loveyourcereal.com.

Weekends we are much more likely to make breakfast together, at least one of the days. Pancakes are a favorite, esp if I promise to make pancake animals.

sara m said...

Ohh, my husband makes breakfast on the weekends and we have cheesy, bacony potatos or chocolate bacon waffles. Totally decadent, but so delicious!

Fran said...

My husband works nights on the weekends so we don't have a big SUnday breakfast or anything. But we usually make up for it later in the week with a big Breakfast-For-Dinner night.
My hubby makes awesome waffles so sometimes we have that but otherwise we have eggs from our own chickens in some form or fashion.

Shari said...

We drink the GOOD coffee on the weekends. Otherwise, it's usually the same cereal, but we all sit down together.

Mimi said...

My kids are pretty much really picky about food, so on weekends I try to cook something that everyone will eat: pancakes, french toast. And sometimes, if we ask really nicely, Daddy will go buy eveyone a donut. Yum!

Jess said...

Torsten has this THING about weekend breakfasts. As in, they much be special. Sometimes this is a nice healthy scrambled eggs and lox. Sometimes it's crepes with Nutella. Oh well.

missris said...

I love to do something special for breakfast on the weekends, usually involving bacon. Mmm, bacon. Although the weekend mornings is also when I get in my long run for the week, which I hope counteracts some of the negative effects of all that bacon.

Leanne said...

On weekends, we make pancakes or waffles or eggs and bacon. Things that take a bit of time. Weekdays breakfasts consist of something that can be popped in the toaster while showering (muffin, toast, bagel) and then eaten in the car on the way to work.

we take time on weekends and we make mickey mouse pancakes and we do it together as a family

On the weekends we love pancakes or cinnamon buns.

Mary said...

If I happen to have a weekend off between my two jobs I generally sleep in and then putter around the house for a couple of hours before eating lunch.

Suzannah said...

We pretty much eat the same foods but can take our time and enjoy them in our pj's! Ahh, weekends...

St said...

The kids like to mix the dry ingredients together for pancakes or muffins. These are weekend foods because we just don't have time on weekdays!

Mama Bub said...

On the weekend, my husband gets up with the three year old, letting me sleep until the baby wakes up, which is usually an extra hour.

Julie said...

Just this Saturday, I got to sleep in until the extremely late hour of 8 o'clock, and then wake up to find my husband at the stove,e the 6 year old perched on a cabinet, and the 2 year old standing on a step stool, all working on a robust breakfast that included at least 2 meats, a cereal course, and the vast majority of a dozen eggs. This will never happen on a weekday. Now excuse me while we spend the rest of the week eating salads to bring our cholesterol numbers back down.

Elizabeth said...

On the weekends, there is BACON.

Saly said...

Our Saturday morning breakfast is usually the same as our weekday breakfast. Cereal or toaster waffles with peanut butter or toast. Bud has TKD and Lucy has Gymnastics on Saturday mornings, and Hub usually works, so we are up early and out the door. Much like during the week, I always hit the drive thru for a large black coffee to take me through my travels.

Sunday mornings we lounge a bit, have coffee and read the paper. The kids usually have a quick breakfast when they wake up and Hub or I cook a big breakfast (French toast, Belgian waffles, pancakes, eggs and bacon or whatever) closer to lunch time. On special Sundays, we get the naughty bakery doughnuts. This works out because we usually have an early dinner on Sunday and do showers and have the kids in bed early before we start a new week.

OH! And if I'm cooking on Sunday, one of the kids always helps. If Hub is cooking, not so much.

may said...

My husband often cooks eggs or Eggs in a Basket for Saturday breakfast. Sunday breakfast is a mad rush to see how much food we can cram down the kids' throats before we're late to church.

Christy said...

We do pancakes or waffles or some non-cereal breakfast on weekends.

Jana said...

My husband and I alternate Saturdays: one Saturday I do what I want (sleep late) and he cooks breakfast and then the next Saturday he does what he wants (goes for a long bike ride) and I cook breakfast. He usually cooks pancakes or breakfast tacos. I usually cook the same old stuff - oatmeal, cereal, peanut butter toast. Can you tell which one of us is the morning person?

TaraRhode said...

Weekend breakfasts are normally the same as weekday breakfasts except they are eaten "later" in the morning (as in, the sun is already up, and you may already hear a lawn mower).
We typically have cereal or english muffins, but occasionally my wife and i will combine forces in the kitchen -- myself with pancake/waffle batter and her with the bacon or scrambled eggs.

My husband is currently deployed so my life is very groundhog day right now. Weekdays the kids have pancakes, weekends they have eggs and toast.

Just call me b said...

Weekday mornings are usually busier. Weekend mornings start a bit later, and are usually more laid back. More time to cook...and enjoy :)

Jessica said...

My husband usually makes breakfast on the weekend. Sometimes I "help" (AKA stand in the kitchen and keep him company), so weekend breakfasts are definitely my favorite!

Tracy said...

The weekends ALWAYS involve BACON...yummy!

Smarti said...

Usually on a weekend my 4 y.o. son and I make a simple breakfast bread with raisins, candied ginger, and pineapple. He measures the flour very carefully and reminds me to put in the baking powder and a pinch of salt. He always begs for a taste of sugar (which I always decline). He also gets to mix- his favorite part. He also loves to grease the bread pan and most of all he loves to lick the spoon afterwards. The only thing is he can never wait for it to bake or cool down- he is ready to eat as soon as it gets in the oven.

SallyG said...

Weekend mornings are much more likely to involve cooking than weekdays which are generally oatmeal/cereal or cereal bars/toaster pastry of some sort. I let the kids choose what they would like to have and it's frequently a cheese omlet for the girl and pancakes for the boy. Also, they get to choose WHEN they eat instead of the morning routine making that determination.

Robin M. said...

Usually I try to make muffins... nothing fancy but something that does take a little more time than I have on weekdays.

We usually make a big breakfast on weekends. Our family favorite is pancakes, eggs and bacon.

We love making pancakes together.

Amanda said...

During the week it's pretty much the same, cereal or toast, muffin, something simple. On the weekend however we do like to make something bigger. Pancakes or homemade waffles are a favorite, so are what my kids like to call a farmhouse buffet. We make a big batch of scrambled eggs, fried potatoes, bacon and toast. Everything goes on the table at once and for some reason the kids really enjoy that! :) Thank you for hosting this giveaway, very nice of you :)

Barb @ getupandplay said...

We don't usually do a big weekend breakfast, although sometimes we'll go get a dozen fresh bagels and cream cheese which will last us through Saturday and Sunday.

My favorite thing about breakfast recently is my 18-month-old, Charlie's breakfast habit. Instead of eating his own breakfast in his high chair, he loves to alternate between us begging bites of our cereal. Cute.

LAMusing said...

Sundays we sometimes make a late breakfast together - more like brunch. Bacon, eggs, waflles or frenchtoast... mmmm

Kate said...

On weekends we usually sit down at the table together for pancakes, eggs, or french toast whereas weekday breakfasts are usually eaten on the go or once the kids get to Grandma's house.

Misty said...

I like fancy breakfasts on the weekends, but we don't do it all the time. Sometimes the neighborhood kids come over so early to ask my kids to play, I am lucky to shove an apple or poptart into their paws before they are out the door.

We usually sleep a little later on the weekends. I like to make something for breakfast and then eat it in bed - even if it is a bowl or cereal or peanut butter toast. I also love pancakes! If we leave early to run errands, we might stop at Einsten Bros. for a bagel or Chick-Fil-A for a chicken biscuit. Yum!

Tamara B. said...

During the weekdays everyone is scrambling to get out the door but on the weekends we can sit down together and enjoy a nice big breakfast of eggs,bacon, hash browns or some big hot delicious cinnamon rolls.

3 Boys and an Old Lady said...

Weekends were made for sit down, family breakfasts and that's usually the only day we make and take time to sit down and have breakfast together. During the week, we're all rushing about getting ready for school and work.

Marie Green said...

Our weekend mornings are different in that often, the big girls take the little girl downstairs and help her eat breakfast (cereal) while my husband and I sleep in. Um YES, you read that right. We are living the good life, at least for 45 minutes on a Saturday morning. ;)

Wander said...

There are biscuits and gravy served on many weekends! We don't have much time to cook during the school week!

Susan C. said...

I love to take time to bake on the weekends - scones are my favorite, but muffins are yummy, too.

Henria O. said...

We particularly love to make pancakes as a family. We allow our daughter to stir the batter and either my husband or I drops the batter onto the griddle. We love to make "baby" pancakes and those are usually the first ones our daughter chooses to eat!

Weekends are a little slower, actually leaving time to wake up before we have to get moving, maybe even make something more than cold cereal for breakfast.

My almost 3 year old INSISTS on having his "Egg Nog" EVERY morning. It started when he drank some actual Egg Nog as a special treat last holiday season, and when they stopped selling it at the supermarket, we had to improvise. From Egg Nog, to Milkshake, it has now morphed into a very healthy smoothie: 1 Banana, Strawberries, Blueberries, milk, fat-free vanilla fro-yo, and 1 crushed up vitamin, all blended and poured through a strainer into a sippy cup - EVERY morning. The grown-ups have coffee, which, to be fair, we are equally insistant upon.

Annie Pazoo said...

Ha! This morning my alarm woke me at 8:30 and I jumped up "OMG I set the wrong time, we're all going to be late" And then I remembered: the weekend. Sigh, smile. Wonderfully quiet household, kids still sleeping. I LOVE not having to get up at 6:00 like on weekdays. Kids get up when they're ready, get their own breakfasts, and can watch a.m. TV. Bliss!

Beth said...

i am not a morning person, so on the weekends my husband and i stall until one of us is motivated enough to make something to eat. today he made eggs with mushrooms and i made toast and we drank a bunch of coffee. my daughter has the appetite of a flea, so she inhaled oxygen and had a bite of toast. it was good.

Deb said...

I let my boys pour ladles of batter on the griddle to help make our pancakes on Sunday mornings.

Weekend mornings are more relaxed...We're more likely to have pancakes or waffles since my husband can entertain the 1 and 3 year old while I cook.

On the weekdays Hubby is already gone to work so breakfast runs smoothly. On the weekends he's home so everything goes to crap. However, he does redeem himself by making the pancakes, even if it is at 10 am.

Ellie said...

The difference between weekends and weekdays is that oon weekends the breakfast is less healthy, by far! We have bacon, hashbrowns, biscuits--all fattening, yummy things!

Tracy R said...

Weekend breakfasts are more relaxed. I get to linger over coffee and sometimes when all of the stars are alligned just right, the man of the house might even take care of making breakfast.

During the week we all eat cereal because that's all we have time for- during the weekend we dress it up alot. We have omelettes, toast, bacon, juice- sometimes waffles, sometimes pancakes- we switch it up!

I'm less likely to eat breakfast on the weekends, as I like to sleep in. We eat basically the same foods, though. emilypjohnson -at- gmail -dot- com

Mommy Daisy said...

Our weekends are usually "Hurry and eat whatever you can grab". I'm less likely to care what my son eats. You want a granola bar? Sure, go ahead. This is especially so when we're rushing out the door to a soccer game on Saturday morning or church on Sunday. Or many times that leads to dry cereal in the car.

I have way more time to make breakfast during the week when I'm home and we have nowhere to go.

clueless but hopeful mama said...

We usually make it a little more special on weekends and what makes it all the more special is I'm almost never nervously looking at the clock and saying "Okay, time to finish eating and get ready for school!".

If Matt's around he'll usually let me sleep in a bit on Saturdays while the kids eat cereal and watch TV. We don't do TV on school/weekday mornings. On Sundays we all get up early and go to church and then are treated to a delicious breakfast OUT by my awesome in-laws. We are totally spoiled and even eat at nice breakfast place with a huge and delicious menu.

Shelly said...

Sadly our weekend mornings are as hectic as our weekday mornings lately. Hopefully tomorrow I'll get to relax and make some french toast instead of the usual oatmeal or cereal.

Our lives are quieter than most of the moms here. We are 83 years old and married for 61 years. Our 2 daughters live out of state, so we keep in touch by phone after breakfast on Saturdays. We have cereal and juice...dull. Sundays I make the breakfast, and we either have pancakes or eggs, with toast and strawberry jam. It's a pleasant change, and makes each Sunday special.

Katie said...

I keep it pretty simple during the week: lowfat vanilla yogurt, raspberries and homemade healthy granola. I like to get a bit fancier on the weekend with homemade breakfast sandwiches: toasted/buttered english muffin, scrambled eggs with some roasted garlic and a slice of sharp cheddar! AND COFFEE!!

When the children were still at home the weekends were always about big breakfasts - omelets, waffles or pancakes, and all the rest to make it complete. Now that they are all adults and out of the house breakfast is more likely to be at a restaurant so I don't have to cook.

wisdomandpeace said...

Saturday mornings are still hectic since my daughter has an early ballet class and it's a 45-minute drive. But Sunday mornings after church there's time for a bigger breakfast: eggs & bacon (favorites in my house are scrambled or poached on an English muffin), from scratch pancakes, waffles or muffins. Coffee used to be just a weekend thing, as well, as there never seemed to be time to grind the beans and brew a pot on weekday mornings, but my parents gave us a K-cup brewer for our last anniversary and I love being able to have a cup or 2 every morning since it only takes about 30 seconds!

Megan said...

We make waffles together on the weekends. Cereal during the week.

CAQuincy said...

Weekends are mostly the same as weekdays when it comes to breakfast. The older two make their own cereal, and I usually help the youngest. However, she's gotten bold enough to start pouring her own cereal, and as long as the milk jug isn't too full/heavy, she pours the milk, also. She gets mad at me if I pour it before she gets a shot at it.


Every once in a while, I bake a batch of muffins with the intent of having them for breakfast. Sometimes they all get eaten up--or put in school lunches-before then!

We are a "brinner" kind of family, so anytime I do try to cook eggs or waffles for breakfast, I get a funny look from my kids--"Why are we having this for breakfast?" LOL

We always make pancakes together on Sunday mornings. The 3-year-olds actually know the right amount of all the ingredients; my dream is they will be making the breakfast THEMSELVES as soon as they can safely handle a griddle!

We may eat the same thing on weekends, but the pace is so much more relaxed. No hurrying to get to school, so sometimes we'll even sit down and eat together. It's nice!

Breakfast is more likely to be done in shifts on the weekends, if I can possibly get away with pouring cereal and going back to bed for at least an hour. Then I get up and make waffles or something.
Or else pour more cereal. :)

On the weekdays, I eat breakfast at my desk every day. On the weekends, I generally skip it all together and have an early lunch that is in some way indulgent.
