If you haven't already visited Feed Our Families, take a moment to look around. Great stuff for parents trying to balance busy lives while preparing healthy food.

    This is a great tip! I do this about once in a week and it makes me about 99% more likely to actually make breakfast!x

    I used to do this on Saturdays so I could sleep in. I even would pour the dry cereal and put little pitchers of milk in the fridge.

    But all of this would work for busy weekdays as well.

    Thanks for this post. I can’t believe how many times I’ve been reading your blog and thought, “Why didn’t I think of that??”

    Since our focus is saving time for moms going back to school, we’re hosting a contest for time-saving holiday recipes, and hoped you wouldn’t mind if we put a little plug in for it here. The winner gets $200 from Williams-Sonoma, so we thought it’d be interesting for your readers too. Anyway, here’s the link. Thanks again, we love your blog!
