Holiday Breakfast Ideas — Week 3
Each week that I share one of my favorite holiday breakfast ideas is a reminder that we are getting closer and closer to Christmas. The holiday season goes by so quickly, that I like to make the most of each day leading up to Christmas. I’m always a little sad once it’s over. Now I am excited and full of anticipation of what plans we have for the holidays. From journeys on the Polar Express, sledding, Friday night popcorn and Christmas movie night with a cozy fire, are activities that make the holidays special.
The holidays aren’t complete without food, and lots of it. Cookies, candy and buffet tables lined with yummy food. Tis’ the season for a lot of goodies to enjoy. One recipe that is on my menu for Christmas morning is this unbelievably easy and delicious Monkey Bread. It takes 10-15 minutes to whip up in the morning and about 30 minutes to bake. A warm plate of ooey, gooey Monkey Bread on Christmas morning is a special treat all our sugar plums will enjoy while opening presents.
