Corner View...Breakfast


Welcome to Wednesday and another edition of Corner View. This week features a personal favorite of mine...breakfast.

I've always been a breakfast person; never have I been one to skip or skimp on breakfast. For approximately four years, I ate the same thing every weekday for breakfast: granola, yogurt and honey (fruit added if something good was in season). I never got tired of it but I did finally decide to change it a couple months ago. Now my daily is some sort of cereal in rice milk. And I drink coffee. Buckets and buckets of coffee. I'm on a serious coffee kick. It's this semester of school that's doing it to me, I swear.


Friday is different, however. Kidlet and I share a big plate of toast. We top our toasts with the following: Nutella, Jam, and the last with butter, cinnamon and sugar. Another key ingredient to our Friday toast feast is listening to cheesy old rock and roll, preferably at increased volume. Not sure how this tradition came about, but here is a link to the first instance of "Rock and Roll Friday".


On Saturdays, we go out to breakfast with my mom. Sundays, I make breakfast for us and whomever shows up. Usually I make pancakes (you know I had to be 'pancakemama' for some reason...) but sometimes waffles are on the menu. On nights when my husband works late, Kidlet and I have breakfast for dinner. Here you can see last Wednesday night's pancakes. I have a nice long story about the best pancakes I ever had, but that will have to wait for another day as that, my friends, is probably more than you want to know about my breakfasts.

If you want to take a trip around the world, here's a list of others who are playing along, enjoy! Jane is our lovely hostess who came up with the idea...

jane said...

I was going to say if you didn't have pancakes somewhere in this post I was going to be a tad dissapointed! Although I am a huge pancake fan. (All of your breakfasts look absolutely delightful)

Also I love the rock music toast fest.. what a fun idea! Thanks for sharing your breakfast with me :)

I never had a waffle or a muffin until I went to America. Now, they are beginning to catch on in England and are probably healthier than bacon, egg, sausages, fried tomato and black pudding, which is the tradtional English breakfast.

Kidlet...love it! Love your routine & Rock & Roll Friday!! We have breakfast for dinner probably once a week... sometimes breakfast tastes better in the evening!

Your daily standard is cereal, while mine is an egg. Unfortunately if I don't eat some kind of protein in the morning for breakfast, I am hungry 30 minutes later. Great post.

epe said...
