What's For Breakfast?

I don't often make a big breakfast around here. Kerry is the only one in the family who likes to eat first thing in the morning. The kids and I don't usually want to eat until after we've been up a couple of hours. And even then no one ever wants to eat at the same time. If I make breakfast, invariably part of it sits around getting cold and then no one wants reheated bacon and eggs. Most mornings, everyone just grabs what they are in the mood for, when they finally get hungry. This can range from cereal or fruit to an all-out omelet with everything in it.

This morning Ben walked in the kitchen and said, "What do we have to eat?"

I rattled off the litany, "Bacon, eggs, toast, grits, cereal, oatmeal, or fruit."

"So.........nothing good then?"


  1. Your house so sounds like mine. Breakfast is a Saturday or Sunday dinner when I fix it. And everyone gobbles it up. The kids will look in my cabinets and see grits, oatmeal, cereal, and poptarts then turn and say "WE have NOTHING to eat"..... I'll go to kroger and if they have toaster strudles or waffles on sale then we "FINALLY" have something good. Tammy

  2. What my mom said is true! We take for granted what we have to eat and think its absolutley not good. When I think about like that it makes me appreciate what we actually have to eat.Its funny the way Ben put it... Dont feel bad... My mom goes through that everyday! kimberly
