I hope everyone had a great Labor Day. This was the first time in my working life that I had a job that gave me Labor day off as a holiday. Unfortunately, my husband had to work all weekend and on Labor day too. I caught up on some housework and did a little shopping. We went out to dinner in my old hometown of Belmont to celebrate the holiday instead of the usual cooking out. 

Being off work, I was able to play around with some new breakfast items. Breakfast is my favorite meal and lately I have to rush breakfast to get to work, so I settle for a bowl of cereal, or oatmeal. 

One of my new favorite oatmeals is Lucky Charms. This is my favorite cereal and now my favorite oatmeal. 

I tried another cereal flavored oat meal. 

Cocoa Puffs flavored.

Both of these oatmeals taste like the real thing. But my favorite of the two is still Lucky Charms. I was not a fan of chocolatey oatmeal. 

One morning I decided to experiment by making biscuits in my air fryer. It worked! I made a couple biscuits using the directions on the Bisquick box. No, these are not momas homemade style. This is just the quick method. Bisuick always comes to the rescue for mornings like this. 

I stuffed it with some homemade sausage and muscadine jelly. 

Another morning, I decided to give Chia pudding a try. There are a lot of health benefits in Chia Seeds. 

It turned out pretty good but I was not a fan of the texture so I am marking this one off. If you like over night oats, you might like chia pudding so don’t let my opinion change yours. You should make some and try it for yourself. It’s so easy to make, a child could do it. I will share the recipe with you . 


  • 3 Tablespoons Chia Seeds.
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla
  • 3/4 cup of milk of your choice
  • 1 Tablespoon maple syrup.  
Mix all together in a bowl, cover and place in fridge for a few hours or over night. 

Like magic, the chia seeds will absorb the milk and become a pudding texture. 

Before eating, add your favorite toppings. (I added microwave cooked blueberries).

Over all, my favorite breakfast is waffles….or is it Gravy biscuits? No wait, I like avocado toast too. So many to chose from, I like it all!

Do you eat breakfast? What is your favorite breakfast? 


  1. You have a way of making food look so stinking delicious. LOL Oatmeal is my favorite since it is BEST for my cholesterol. I gave up the statin and added more oatmeal and it worked.
    I see some good additions for the oatmeal. Thanks.

  2. SO glad you had it off! Girl you really make me hungry and I may start eating breakfast again! Great post.

  3. The Lucky Charms and Cocoa Puffs oatmeal makes me smile. My favorite cereal is Cap'n Crunch! It's not just for kids! Lol I love to have brunch out, especially on vacation, but breakfast is one meal I can skip. Just the "morning eating" part of it. I love the food choices and have breakfast foods for dinner occasionally. Yum.

  4. My favorite breakfast is a pancake with mini chocolate chips in it and it's what I had this morning. Second I like French toast with sugar.
    I do like waffles too. Cereals I eat are Raisin Bran and Cocoa Krispies.
