A Sweet, Lazy Weekend Morning

Do you ever feel like you barely have a moment to relax and enjoy your breakfast during the week? If you’re like SO many other moms I talk to, your Monday-to-Friday mornings are probably pretty hectic. You might be making lunches and breakfast for the kids, or hunting for lost gym shoes and school trip permission forms. You might be finishing up the last of a report you need for work that day, or making sure you spouse knows the kids have hockey practice that night. With so much on the go, we don’t always have a chance to sit down and enjoy a slow, mellow breakfast with our families — which is why we try to make sure the weekends are super special!


On the weekends, sometimes my husband or I will sleep in, and the other will start to make breakfast for the kids. My teen likes to help out too, and so does my youngest, but we like to aim for a slightly more impressive breakfast than during the week. On a school day, breakfast might be something like yogurt with fruit and vanilla, cereal, or smoothies, but on the weekend, we like to go all out!

Lately, my kids have been requesting one particular breakfast treat — my husband too, actually! — and since it’s something that I’ve been loving just as much, I’ve been happy to oblige. If you were to pop by our place on a Saturday morning, you’d find my little guy, Charlie, staring through the little oven window, waiting for Pillsbury™ Grands Cinnamon Rolls to finish baking!


Is there anything more delicious than cinnamon rolls? Just the idea of them makes me drool and when they are baking up in the oven — oh my. That smell is intoxicating! I’m surprised we don’t have neighbors banging down our door hoping for a taste! 🙂


I love the relaxed feeling of a Saturday or Sunday morning. On those particular weekends when no one has to be anywhere, it’s such a good feeling to just able to relax and enjoy a special cinnamon-y treat, and enjoy being together as a family. I find that the tradition of having a special breakfast on the weekend is a great thing for my youngest to look forward to during the week, and it gets my teen out of bed before noon. 😉 No one can resist the smell of baking Pillsbury™ Grands!
