3 Quick Easy, I Don't Have to Turn on My Stove Breakfast Ideas

With temps nearing 90 degrees by 8 in the morning, I shriek at the thought of turning on my stove. Of course I want to make sure my family has a hearty breakfast but there'll be no biscuits baking in my kitchen this Summer.  Our microwave, however, is getting one heckuva a workout thanks to these tasty breakfast dishes.  Be forewarned though, you may want to coat your mug or ramekin with some non-stick spray or butter before adding ingredients as clean up may require some soaking and scrubbing.

I love omelettes and the kids love creating omelettes.  It's a delicious way to get rid of those last couple slices of ham or turkey, that last little sprinkle of cheese and that last smidgen of diced veggies or that one teeny, weeny wedge of onion.  

Omelette in a Mug

    2 eggs
    1 tbsp. milk or water
    Tbsp or two of your favorite toppings: cheese, ham, bacon, etc.

    1.  Crack eggs into cup and stir in milk/water and your favorite toppings. Mix well.
    2.  Microwave 2 minutes or until eggs set.

Pancakes in a Mug
    ½ c. complete pancake mix
    ¼ c. water

    1.  Pour pancake mix into a microwave safe mug and stir in water. There will be 
         a few lumps but that's okay. Heat in microwave on High for 1 minute.
    2.  Drizzle with syrup and serve.

It's not the prettiest pancake but it's a pancake nonetheless.  You can enjoy in your mug or slide onto a plate.

Smoothie Shake-ups

    1 c. yogurt (plain or your favorite 8 oz. flavored yogurt cup)
    ½ c. ice cubes
    2 tsp. vanilla extract
    1 cup fresh OR frozen fruit

    1.  Pour all ingredients into a blender and blend till smooth (approx.. 20-30 seconds)
    2.  Pour into 2 glasses.

What are some of your tried and true quick breakfast ideas?  Let me know leave a comment below.

I would most definitely love to try one of the three Quick and Easy Don't Have to Turn on My Stove Breakfast Ideas. I will be trying at least one over the holiday weekend.

We love fruit smoothies and I like to freeze the fruit and forego the ice cubes. Almond milk ads some extra flavor.

Hello Spring!  

I am so excited for Spring 2018.  Not that I have anything major planned or anything.  Well, I am on a cruise right now.  Oh yeah, I'm on my way to Cozumel for a few days of rest, relaxation and margaritas.  

What a way to welcome Spring huh?  What about you?  What are your Spring travel plans?  Are you and the family hitting the road?  Catching a flight somewhere?  Where ya headed?

Nothing like a little extra spending money when on vacation and I am so excited for this Rain Rain Go Away! Giveaway Hop.  This is my 3rd year participating in this fun hop sponsored by The Mommy Island and The Kids Did It and each year it gets bigger and bigger.  

There are some really great prizes up for grabs and add some new blogs to your reading list plus your chance to win a $40 Visa eGift Card.  Why $40 you ask.  Well that's because I-40 is the interstate we typically travel to most of our Spring Break destinations.

Jeepers! It's January Hop

Happy New Year!

What better way to kick off the new year than with a giveaway! I am so excited to join The Mommy Island, The Kids Did It and 90+ other fab blogs in the first big giveaway hop of 2018!

Here’s your chance to start the new year off with a win. One lucky Three Boys and an Old Lady blog reader will receive a $15 Walmart eGift card. $10 may not seem like a lot but it’s enough to stock up on some last minute Christmas clearance gifts. Trust me. I bought a 6’ Christmas tree WITH lights, 2 animal massagers, 3 Jelly Belly BeanBoozled Jelly Beans Mystery Bean Dispenser, Christmas cards and wrapping paper less than $20 during an after Christmas Walmart shopping trip.

I was searching for some cough syrup when my friend’s kid spotted the Jelly Belly BeanBoozled Jelly Beans Mystery Bean Dispenser on sale for 50 cents. What a steal! The regular price is $10 so to find them on sale for 50 cents was a deal. We cleared the shelves.

A few rows down we spotted some animal neck massager…
