I love simple special meals. (Yes, there are times when I like to go all out & spend a ton of time doing something really special, but for the most part I like to keep things quick and easy.)  On the weekends we like to do leftover breakfasts where we use everything leftover from the week in the fridge.

Here’s a picture of something I like to do to make it feel more like a treat:

{Yogurt in my husband’s Great Aunt Stella’s etched crystal dish}
Plain old yogurt from the plastic Dannon containers it in a pretty dish with fresh fruit on top just tastes so much better.  My husband brought home these pretty yellow daisies and I loved them with the yellow botanical in our kitchen:
We loooove leftover breakfast burritos:
This week we ended making them out of eggs, white rice (leftover from the Chinese takeout the night before), sausage, mushrooms and fresh homemade pico de gallo.

{Here’s a picture of me making my visiting cousin babywipe his plate off so I could take a pretty picture of his burrito.  See what it’s like being related to me??!}
{And I said I wouldn’t put this picture of them in their pjs on here but I couldn’t resist.}
Hope you had a great weekend-  Ours was crazy busy but good!  {I left my daily planner/ schedule at our hotel in LA and had it next day aired home via UPS but came to find out this morning- 3 days later- that they accidentally sent it back GROUND…  I am seriously a lost person without it and feel like a total mess!! eeeek}.  We have a small photoshoot here in the “studio” (i.e. my basement) for Piccola Magazine today, so I’m off to clean.
Anyway, would love to hear your breakfast shortcuts!!

xoxo, Lauren
