o/~School days, school days, mom's are not so blue days o/~

Well, that's how *some* people sing it :) School is
back in session in most areas, and a good breakfast
is what everyone needs to get charged up for the
long day ahead of them. Here are a few breakfasts
that are not only nutrional, but taste good, too!

Crumb-Topped French Toast

1/2 cup skim milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1 cup cornflake crumbs
8 (1 ounce) diagonally-cut slices French bread (about 1 inch thick)
1/4 cup margarine, melted

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Combine the first four ingredients in a medium bowl; stir well with a wire whisk. Place cornflake crumbs in a shallow dish. Dip bread slices into milk mixture, then dredge in cornflake crumbs. Place bread slices on a baking sheet, and drizzle with margarine. Bake at 450 degrees for 15 minutes or until golden brown. Makes 8 servings

Serve this great french toast with warmed syrump, bacon roll-ups (roll bacon, skewer with toothpicks and broil), and sectioned oranges sprinkled with a little cinnamon sugar.

Rise'n Shine Chicken Burritos

8 chicken breast tenders
2 eggs
1 Tablespoon milk
1/4 teaspoon salt
dash of pepper (optional)
4 (8 - 10 inch) flour tortillas
1 Tablespoon butter or margarine
1/3 cup shredded cheddar or cheese of your choice
Picante sauce (optional)

Cut chicken into bite-sized pieces and set aside. Put eggs, milk, salt and pepper in a bowl and scramble with a fork; set aside. In a skillet over medium-high heat, melt the margarine or butter. Add the chicken pieces and cook 2 to 3 minutes; chicken should no longer be pink inside. Pour the egg mixture over the chicken and cook and additional 1 to 2 minutes, stirring ocassionally until the eggs are set. Remove from heat. Spoon the mixture into warm tortilla wraps (see package directions for warming), top with cheese and picante (if desired), roll and serve. Add a side of fresh fruit or a glass of juice to round out the meal. Makes 4 servings

This particular dish is very easy for children to help make. Don't forget to add any veggies you might enjoy like onions or mushrooms. These should go in with the chicken.
