Desperation: The Mother of Invention

I desperately need to go to the grocery store. Our schedule has been crazy for the past couple of weeks and shows no signs of slowing up for at least the next three. However, we still need to eat.

This morning the boys needed breakfast and we truly did not have anything so I was really scraping the bottom of the barrel/getting inventive (you pick your description), when I pulled out the last of our hamburger buns, toasted them and topped them with peanut butter for breakfast.

I put breakfast at the boy's spots and sat down to have my coffee. Soon Tanner walked in and said, "Breakfast is awesome." I just smiled.

Todd walked in not too long after holding his bread and saying, "I love breakfast. Can you make this again tomorrow?"

My boys. I am so grateful that they aren't picky eaters and have such grateful hearts. Or maybe they are just starving because I haven't bought groceries in a week!

I better get moving. Kroger... get a buggy ready! Here I come!

Honey, I know exactly what you mean! I put off grocery shopping as long as possible, because it wears me out.
Thanks so much for the Redneck Potatoes recipe! Have mercy-they are NASTY good!!!

So glad you enjoyed them. My brother-in-law loves anything with ranch dressing so when I saw the recipe I knew they would be a hit.

I've done the bun and peanut butter myself.
