a week of thanksgiving - day 5 - easy breakfast roll-ups

Happy Black Friday!
Did you survive all the family? All the food?
Today is our interlude between family Thanksgiving events, and if you are like us, then you might want a small reprieve from recipes that require ten steps and twenty ingredients. But you also might want to make a breakfast that is slightly elevated from cereal, because let's face it, how often do we get to make a hot breakfast?
These easy breakfast are the result of a "what do we have in the cupboards" moment when even cereal and milk were scarce around our house.

These are so simple, that if you play your cards just right, your kids might even make them for you along with a vat of coffee. Now wouldn't that be something to give thanks for?

Here are the ingredients  Ready made crescent roll dough, cheese (I used string,) and deli style lunch meat (I used turkey.)

Prep: Cut cheese sticks in half, pull out two meal slices per roll, separate dough.

Roll meat around cheese and dough around meat.

Line them up and bake at 350 until the dough is golden and the cheese oozy.

Hot breakfast voila! So easy. And cheesy. 
Place in front of unsuspecting child and wait for the scent of fresh baked buttery rolls and melted cheese to overtake his senses.

Catch him during the first bite paparazzi style to prove it's yumminess.

Ignore his protest and continue to click away.
Life is rough when your momma is a blogger. 

I adore this kid. He has been the best surprise of my life. At 8 years of age he still has his sense of wonder, whimsy and imagination still firmly in tact. Yesterday morning he stumbled into our room and said in the most amazing and joyous way " Happy Thanksgiving Momma! Is the parade on yet?" 
As if he had waited all year for this. 
And the great part is, he had. 
So he snuggled down into the crook of my arm and oohed and ahhed  over the floats and the singing and told me all about how he wants to go to the Macy's Day Parade and be "in the crowd, not on a float" someday. 
I love that my kids are still kids - not mini adults with huge too-cool chips on their shoulders. 
It is a blessing

Enjoy Black Friday friends - and remember to shop handmade, local, and benevolent if possible this holiday season. It's a great way to spread hope far and wide.
