Krusteaz Breakfast for Dinner #Giveaway!

Fun fact: In a national survey, Krusteaz found that nine out of ten (91 percent) Americans say they eat breakfast for dinner, with 56 percent doing so once a month or more often. For families, the trend is even more prevalent as 67 percent of respondents with children in the household say they have breakfast for dinner once a month or more.


My kids love pancakes and I for the life of me seem to have a issue making them, I think its because you need patience which when trying to feed 5 screaming kids I sometimes lack. Krusteaz came to me with a proposition, trying breakfast for dinner.


Krusteaz sent me some pancake mix for me to enjoy a nice breakfast for dinner along with some squeeze bottles so I could get creative. Being this is my obligation I decided I would try once again to make pancakes. I started with using Krusteaz Light & Fluffy Buttermilk pancake mix, which you can also purchase in 8 different flavors like pumpkin, chocolate chip, and what I will now be on a hunt for apple cinnamon and more.


Since I for the life of me cannot master a pancake I was unable to use the squeeze bottle, because my mix was to thick. I did however put my own personal spin on the Krusteaz Light & Fluffy Buttermilk pancakes I added Vanilla Extract along with purple food coloring. I find it fun to add color to that which is white just to change things up.


I mixed it all up although I must say, it was a little clumpy not horrible but a little, I then proceeded to pour out my mix onto the griddle pan. Wow I finally made pancakes that were not burnt and cooked all the way through! I was so proud of myself. My kids all gathered at the table, and each enjoyed 3 purple pancakes for dinner.


I love having breakfast for dinner it is one of my most favorite meals and I hope we can make it a family tradition  to have a breakfast night once a week. My husband, myself and the girls miss out on breakfast often, because my husband goes into work at 5am, my daughters sleep til noon almost and I am not quite ready for breakfast at 7. My sons get breakfast at school.
