Orange Sauce, Blueberry Sauce

I am not a morning person. That, combined with the fact that my husband doesn't really eat breakfast (I know, I know, it's the most important meal of the day; but he gets along fine without it), means that breakfast around here is usually cereal. However, once in a while, I make breakfast for dinner; and that is a fun treat that definitely makes my boys happy.

When I do, I often make these two sauces which are great on either waffles or pancakes (and would also be great on Dulcimer's french toast which she paired with a delicious raspberry sauce that is similar to this blueberry one...if you need a pancake recipe, check out this one from Lisa).

Orange Sauce

What You Need
1/2 c. butter
1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. frozen orange juice concentrate

What You Do
Combine ingredients in a pan. Bring just to a boil, stirring occasionally.

Blueberry Sauce

What You Need
1/2 c. sugar
3 tsp. cornstarch
dash salt
1/4 c. water
1 pint blueberries
1 tbsp. lemon juice

What You Do
Combine sugar, cornstarch, and salt. Stir in water. Add blueberries. Bring to a boil; simmer until clear and thickened, about 4 minutes. Remove from heat, and add lemon juice.

Happy breakfasting! (Even if it is 6:30 PM, not AM...) :)

"When you wake up in the morning, Pooh,"
said Piglet at last,
"what's the first thing you say to yourself?"

"What's for breakfast?"
said Pooh.
"What do you say, Piglet?"

"I say, 'I wonder what's going to happen exciting today'?"
said Piglet.

Pooh nodded thoughtfully.
"It's the same thing," he said.

We often eat breakfast for dinner — Brinner.;-) I'm going to have to try these sauces next time — they sound good!!

Thanks for sharing, Davene!

"Brinner" - I like that! I think a new word has been added to my family's vocabulary. :)

We made the blueberry sauce over the weekend for pancakes. (YUM!) We then enjoyed the leftovers on Angel food cake the next day!! It was PERFECT!!!
