This morning the kids were super cranky, the house was cold and I wanted to find a way to start our morning off a fun way. There were a few leftover biscuits in the fridge from Sunday’s chicken and biscuits and strawberries that were about to go bad. So I decided to try to treat the kids to dessert for breakfast, delicious, warm strawberry shortcake.
All I did was cut up a pound of strawberries, combined it with 1/2 cup of powdered sugar in a sauce pan and cooked it on medium heat for 15 minutes. In the meantime I warmed up the biscuits. I spread the strawberry topping over top the biscuits and surprised the kids by bringing this treat to the table pre-9 am, definitely earlier than they’re used to having sweets. It was a hit!
I probably shouldn’t make this a habit in our house, but it was fun for an occasional treat. Lucille watches Strawberry Shortcake on Netflix. When I told her what we were eating she insisted I put on the show. So, we had entertainment with breakfast too.
