Me at my great grandmother's gathering eggsOn a regular basis, breakfast is not thought much of by my family and I. We usually grab yogurt, fruit, granola, cereal, or toast and are out the door. There are a few occasions where we give breakfast more attention and one of those times are on holiday mornings like Christmas. When my sisters and I got older and we wanted to sleep in versus get up early to unwrap gifts, my family decided that we would open presents and then have a big breakfast. This way we could enjoy the process of opening presents and visiting with each other, instead of rushing the process and jumping straight into the kitchen to prepare a feast. So we prepare our big Christmas meal at dinner.
On our menu is usually biscuits and gravy, my dad's fluffy scrambled eggs, grits, bacon, and sometimes pancakes. My dad loves pancakes with blueberry syrup. We make our blueberry syrup by mixing thawed blueberries (we always have blueberries in the freezer from where we picked them in the summer) and syrup then heating it until the syrup is warm.
This morning I woke up early and decided I wouldn't make my dad wait until Christmas morning to enjoy pancakes and his favorite blueberry syrup. No! I would make him some this morning.
