Bacon, Egg and Cheese Biscuit Muffins

To accompany our biscuit/muffins, we had banana salad. I figured Em would love this concept, and it turns out, I was right. As I picked her up from daycare last night, I told her that we had to go home and help Felicia make dinner. She asked what we were going to make, and I told her 'banana salad.' It got a great reaction and she thought it was super silly, as only a 3-year-old would.
So we got home and made our version of the salad. This was another idea I took from cookingwithmykid and to give credit where it's due, the recipe is here. I decided to document our adventures in making it, because Emily was having such a good time.
First we cut up the bananas ('on the orange plate for halloween' - says Em)
Next, we added the bananas to the bowl:
See that smile? That is a smile of a child who loves craisins. At this point it was like the child had won salad lottery, and believe it or not, she actually has been known to eat the green variety. To have bananas in a salad was silly, but to have craisins is divine. Must remember this for the next green salad.
Next step is the pecans:
This container is the last of once was a 5 pound bag of pecans that Heather's mom gave us last Christmas. Do you freakin' have any idea how much a 5 pound bag of pecans is? It is a lot. I've given co-workers bags, we've made countless things and here we are - almost a full year later with just a little bit left.
From here, I drizzled just a little bit of honey, and added my own secret ingredient to the mix - cinnamon. Just a little sprinkle. Our photography skills are not the best, but here's the final result, which we all loved:
