And on the Eighth Day God Created Breakfast!

I confess I am a breakfast fiend. I go to bed at night dreaming of what I might have for breakfast. Half the fun of traveling for me is knowing I will get to go out for breakfast (and not have to clean up all the breakfast mess.) Of course Wally and Emma, the cats who own us and demand to be fed long before I am willing to get out of bed, get the prize for breakfast for being most passionate about breakfast in our house.

When I first read The Hobbit and discovered that those delightful, hairy, little creatures routinely had multiple breakfasts, Bilbo become the hero of the book for me even before the adventure began. Who wants to be an airy-faery elf that seems to live on beauty and eternal wisdom when you could have:

  • 7:00am – Breakfast
  • 9:00am – Second Breakfast
  • 11:00am – Elevenses


Not too long ago I surveyed people about their favorite breakfast foods, (you can see results here.) Right now I am deep into hot cereal season. I also have been obsessed with drinking so much oolong tea that soon I will need to insert a catheter. But breakfast for those who enjoy it can be a treat and a very personal, regional, and emotional meal.

I invite you to enjoy my conversation with Yuri Ivanovich (yes, he is one of my many characters. More proof that I do not play well with others.) We talk over the results of the survey and reveal some surprising changes ahead on our breakfast tables. PLEASE tell me about your breakfast.
