    Default My DH is Killing me....

    I don't know what happened, but lately..ie..everyday..he feels compelled to stop at McDonalds and eat breakfast before work..it bothered me a little bit 2 weeks ago, but now, it is really making me chomp at the bit..He is WASTING $30 a week!!!!!! Anyone have any suggestions? I think maybe it is my fault, because I haven't gotten up with him for the last month (I have lupus and it's REALLY bad right now)...but still it's the point..anyone have any breakfast sandwich recipes that I could make ahead and freeze for him? How do I approach this issue..it is truly driving me insane~I thought we were both on-board, but I guess not Maybe it's just a phase???? LOL

    I did up a large batch of homemade egg, sausage & cheese biscuits and froze them for dh & I before I started this last semester at college. It would be even easier to make homemade egg mcmuffins (no need to make biscuits) or with the frozen biscuits or even the tube biscuits.

    I did a semi-tutorial on my blog:

    I have to admit, on the weekends I tend to stop at fast food for breakfast. But more to the point, you can make sausage and biscuits and freeze them, as well as breakfast burritos, egg mcmuffins, etc. Also you can bake up a breakfast casserole, cut it into servings sizes and put them in containers then freeze them.

    Ask him if he feels that he is getting $1,560 worth of satisfaction out of it because that is the yearly cost (52x30) which would make a pretty decent vacation fund!

    I wrapped them in plastic wrap individually, flash froze them (explained on the blog) then put them in a freezer bag.

    To heat up, I removed the plastic wrap (I have a thing about plastic in the microwave) and wrapped two at once in a paper towel. Then I microwaved for 30 seconds on high, turned them over then microwaved them for another 30 seconds on high.

    Next time I make them I'm going to use cheddar rather than American. The American cheese practically disintegrated in the microwave.

    I make these for hubby and DD. They love em and a few of these muffins are filling and portable.

    Breakfast Meat Muffins

    1/4 cup oil
    1 cup milk
    1 med egg
    2 tablespoons sugar
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1 tablespoons baking powder
    2 cups AP flour

    The Add-in's: 1/2-3/4 cup finely chopped ham, or 6 slices of cooked and crumbled bacon, or 1/2 cup cooked, finely chopped sausage. You can also add 1/2 cup shredded cheese.

    In a large bowl, combine the oil, egg, milk, sugar and salt. Mix it well with a fork or wire whisk. Measure in the baking powder and flour. Mix again until all of the dough particles are moistened. Add in your choice of meat and cheese, mix gently until well combined, but do not over mix. The whole thing should take about 20-30 strokes. Spoon batter into a dozen well oiled muffin cups. bake 400 degrees for about 20 minutes. Remove pan from oven and cool slightly before removing muffins from pan.

    This recipe makes a dozen muffins and can be made the night before. they freeze well and can be popped in microwave to reheat.

    I would discuss it with him and if it something he really enjoys maybe ask him to cut it to 1 or 2 days a week. that way it gives him his treat and at least it is not quiet so much money.

    I will try to post this again.

    Waffles and pancakes can be made and frozen. Try writing a message on the outer wrapping with permanent marker. This way he will know you are thinking about him when you may be still sleeping.
