Breakfast Butterfly - Go Ahead, Play with Your Food

Butterfly French Toast and Eggs - Ideas for Moms
I love having fun with food, especially at breakfast when my kids often need a little encouragement to wake up and start the day in a positive way.  My son and I made a french toast and scrambled egg butterfly, and he loved it. 

We cut the french toast into quarters for the wings, formed the body, head, and antennae out of scrambled eggs, and added ju-ju bees for eyes.  I think chocolate chips would be cute for eyes, but my son wanted ju-ju bees.  Simple and fun and he had a smile on his face while he cleaned his plate.

Thanks sweetie for joining this week and posting. Sorry I have been around. I'm having computer issues and switching over to Wordpress so my blog is down. I'll be back soon though.
