Today it’s all about making some budget recipes for breakfast. I’m really trying to show the world different recipes that are very inexpensive to make from scratch. Do you love to eat at home, or is it just me?

Maybe it’s because when I worked crazy hours I had to get take out so much, I don’t know. I’m not saying Mark and I don’t ever eat out, but I really would rather eat at home where I know the kitchen is clean and the food is fresh. Plus, it’s so much cheaper.

    Am I missing something? I didn’t find a recipe for the picture at the top of this.

      HI Carol, oh my gosh, I’m sorry. I can’t use other bloggers pictures (in that spot) so I showed my readers what I fix for my family. My wheat bread with a lather of avocado topped with a tomato slice from the garden along with fresh lettuce I just picked. I do not do dairy but my husband does. You can top it with an egg or not. It’s just a simple breakfast or lunch we have at our house. Linda

    I have been making the 2 ingredient Pumpkin Muffins for years now. Although, I don’t top them with anything AND I add additional pumpkin pie spice to the mixture. They are the moistest muffins on earth!! I generally only make them in the fall, though because that is when I crave pumpkin!

      Hi Leanne, oh I hear you on the pumpkin muffins. Is that the cake mix one? Linda
