Ahhhh, Breakfast. It is your taste bud’s first impression of the day. It is one of my favorite meals…along with lunch and dinner.
And snack time.
I never understood the large amounts of people who skip breakfast each and every day.
I have never skipped breakfast.
The one time I did, I was at acting camp, and I started to faint during warm-ups.
Although everyone probably thought I was acting.
I once had a roommate who HAD to eat breakfast food before anything else.
That meant if we went out for lunch and she hadn’t eaten by then, she would eat a quick bowl of cereal before we left, or just order breakfast food or lunch.
To me, breakfast is not abut what you eat, but about when.
Before 9 AM.
I can eat anything for breakfast.
Octopus Salad? Yes.
You name it, I probably have had it for breakfast.
I’ll be honest though, actual breakfast food is what I crave.
I love cereal. I love eggs. I love pancakes.
When we go out, I order omelets.
When we stay in, I make blueberry wheat pancakes.
This particular weekend we had tacos on a Saturday night. That could only mean one thing for the next morning…
