Write or Die Wednesday - Breakfast


Another Wednesday has come & I'm joining up for the bi-weekly link up created by:


Write or Die Wednesdays


This week's bi-weekly topic is:


Growing up breakfast wasn't a huge institution in our home - dinner was. While we had a wide range of cereals - hot and cold, muffins, and fruits; it wasn't a huge sit down meal. We just picked what we wanted on our way out the door to either school or work. There was always a pot of coffee available but nothing I ever indulged in while at home.
Now as an adult with a house hold of my own.. breakfast still isn't a huge institution. Like the household I grew up in, I provide various hot & cold cereals, fruits and coffee. Back when our house was full of roommates, I thought that breakfast was super important. I wanted breakfast to be that meal where we all set down and had a moment together. I would get up every Sunday and fix a huge breakfast. Pancakes, bacon, & eggs. Waffles. Sausage, biscuits and gravy. I went all out. Everybody slowly left our house and the breakfast morning stopped. My husband like to hint towards weekend breakfast ever so often & I get the hint by creating a smaller version for the two of us.
I think my two favorite types of breakfast is either a Caramel Machiato with a blueberry scone from Starbucks or a Smoothie from Jamba Juice. I'm not a huge wake up and eat breakfast kinda girl. I love my coffee but I can live without all the extras. More or less because I'm not a morning person, I don't want to wake up and cook & then I have to clean up after everyone has eaten. I'd rather get up and throw some clothes on for a drive thru.
My all time favorite place to eat is IHOP now, it used to be Waffle House when I lived in Oklahoma. Man I loved Waffle House! I could get a huge waffle, some eggs and a side of grits! (yep I'm from the South & we like our grits!) Man those were the best breakfast mornings.. hands down! I also have missed going to a Crackle Barrel on Sunday's (again when I lived in Oklahoma). 
So while I don't go all out for breakfast majority of the time, our house guests would tell you differently. I always make a huge spread if we have a house guest. My specialty meals are more in the evenings. I know breakfast is super important for you but again I'd just rather have a coffee or a smoothie to start my day. Better yet - pay for someone else to make it for me. 

How do you like your breakfast? What is your favorite morning meal?

  1. Mmm Cracker Barrels on Sunday... yesss girl, you are speaking my language. :) My fave breakfast is French toast and extra bacon. I could eat that every day, but of course I don't. :)

  2. We have a place called LaMadeliene here. They call it "country French" cooking. They have the most amazing crepes for when I'm super hungry. Or strawberries with a yogurt sauce poured over them for something lighter. It's a charming breakfast spot that I adore.

    1. LaMadeliene sounds amazing! We have a place here called "Shades". It's amazing simply because it is right on the beach and you can over look the ocean as you eat in a almost glass building. You can also eat on the porch and bring your dogs for breakfast all day. They don't serve 'southern' meals but they are worth the visit! So if I ever make it to where you live I'll have to try LaMadeliene and if you ever make it to SD then you'll have to try Shades.
