Easy Breezy Breakfast

My sister and her husband came to stay this last weekend, and they brought my 2 favorite nephews - their dogs Cooper and Bear! I knew we had a fun weekend ahead of eating, drinking and playing with dogs, so I wanted to have an easy option for breakfast while still making it special so they would enjoy their first trip visiting us in our new house.

The menu:
  • Blueberry and almond scones from Everyday Food magazine (I liked these, but they weren't my favorite scone, a bit too soft for my taste. But, I loved the abundance of blueberries and crunch of almonds in them!) (prepare these the evening before and then pop in the toaster oven just before serving to warm)
  • Fresh grapes
  • Yogurt jars

 Yogurt jars

4 ounces honey yogurt (or buy plain yogurt and stir in 1 tablespoon honey)
2 ounces raspberry jam
4 ounces granola

Using 4-ounce mason jars or bowls, place 1 oz yogurt in the bottom of each dish, taking care to smooth out for an even surface.Next, layer in 1/2 ounce (about 1 spoonful) on top of the yogurt, evenly distributing. Finally, top with yogurt. 

The yogurt jars were our favorite part of the breakfast, so next time I might try doing 6 or 8 oz servings instead since we all gobbled ours up!
