Breakfast at every meal - what a day!!

Three course breakfast! - Apparently some places serve quite the extravagant breakfast - I would not be able to eat all of this - way too heavy!

I had two interviews and had to pick up my mother's prescriptions yesterday, so it was a busy day. I left at 9:30 and got home again at 3. I had wanted an egg for breakfast, but didn't wake up in time to make one, so I had a yogurt with my coffee, got dressed and left. My first appointment was with a non-profit agency who helps the disabled find employment. That ended just before noon and by then I was getting pretty hungry. I decided to stop at the Denny's up the street and had their All-American Slam with scrambled eggs with cheese, two bacons, two sausages, whole wheat toast, and opted for grits instead of the heavier hash browns - plus some decaf coffee. Well, I have to say, I thoroughly enjoyed that meal. I eat the grits the same way I eat cream of wheat - with some butter and sweetener (used to be sugar, but I have to avoid it these days). It was exactly what I wanted without being too heavy. So, that was two breakfasts so far. Then, I stopped at the pharmacy, dropped off Mom's transfer prescription, and went to my next appointment with a staffing agency (my unemployment is 2/3 gone and I NEED an income!), filled out their myriad of paperwork, interviewed with the staffing coordinator, took their typing test (65 wpm, by the way - nice!) and left. I went back to the pharmacy who by now had plenty of time to have all of Mom's prescriptions ready and picked them up, paid, and went home. By the time I got there, I had a nice headache (being out in the heat does that) and wanted to take a nap. Well, Mom woke me at 6 (what?? wow!!) and said she was ready for supper, could we have bacon and pancakes? Well - we did! With sugar-free syrup, of course, but they did taste good. I always add a little vanilla to the batter to enhance the pancake flavor. I cooked the rest of the bacon in the pack because there wouldn't be enough left to save and I know Mom likes to have bacon sandwiches once in a while. Now she has some already cooked. So, that's how I ended up having breakfast all day. Not a bad way to go, really. How about you - have you had a day where, for whatever reason, all of your meals were either the same type or broke with tradition in some way? Tell us about it.

Sounds right up my husband's alley, he is a breakfast lover.. I normally do not eat anything until at least 3:00 or 4:00 in the afternoon.. He isn't supposed to be eating the sausage or the bacon but he does anyway.. He always has to take his meds in the morning, so he eats a good breakfast every morning.. Occasionally, I do like a breakfast in the evening and I do mean a big good southern breakfast.. I always fix biscuits, sausage gravy, sausage, bacon, eggs, grits, hash browns, sliced tomatoes, honey and jelly.. We eat like Kings when I do this but it is only on certain occasions, as he isn't supposed to eat like this.. When we do this he has 2 breakfast in one day and is in hog heaven.. Have a great day..

It's probably best that he eats if he has to have medicine then - it's not good to take medicine on an empty stomach, unless they say you need to. I recently began to make sausage gravy with the sausage we buy at the Amish market. It is so yummy!!! But, unless I'm making it for supper, I don't make or cook biscuits (cook because I've never made an edible biscuit in my life! LOL) I like it on my buttered toast or by itself to dunk my toast into. My father used to eat it on pancakes instead of butter and syrup. Now, sliced tomatoes - we don't do those for breakfast, although I'm sure my mother would enjoy them. They're also very British (who also serve beans for breakfast). Also tomatoes in Ireland. Bacon - yum - meaty, smoky, extra crispy bacon!! Now for the honey, if you take one of those biscuits raw and deep fry it, I'll pop a hole in it and put some honey and butter in there and be in heaven!!

You make it all sound so good, but you never know what you are missing if you don't try a good juicy slice of tomato on a hot biscuit, it is so good..

No, but if I did, I would want it to be breakfast. Breakfast food is delicious, and I don't know how people can go without it.

Well, I don't always eat breakfast, the meal, but I thoroughly enjoy breakfast, the food!!! Sometimes I'll even eat dinner food for breakfast, but if we go to a diner, there's just something about being in a diner where I crave breakfast food (or Denny's or Friendly's). I LOVE cream chipped beef gravy!! It's so yummy - but, they never serve it with eggs, so I always order a scrambled egg with it. Don't really know why. But, it seems so lonely without an egg.

It sounds like you had a very full day and your lunch sounds so good to me. I can't remember if I have ever had a day where all my meals were sort of the same type but I might have at one time or another. I do know after reading this I am hungry for fried eggs....yummy

That was me - I just wanted some eggs so bad, but didn't wake up soon enough. So, by the time lunch rolled around, I was ready for them. I don't like fried eggs, though. Even Eggs Benedict, I'll ask them to scramble them. I have eaten Egg McMuffins, but I think it's because there are so many flavors on them and the eggs are cooked hard. My daughter loves over easy eggs. I won't eat them or soft boiled or even hard boiled. I just like scrambled. :::sigh::: I don't know about me. It's a good thing my parents liked hard boiled eggs or I'd have had one sad Easter when I was little!! LOL

That sounds like a fun day, as far as the eating goes anyway. I have never had a day when I have eaten the same meal all day except when I had waffles for lunch, then at the cafeteria they had pancakes, syrup, waffles, french toast, bacon, sasauge and orange juice, then for a mid-day snack I had a cold pancake in the fridge with no syrup. That was fun!

Sorry for the delay - I got so carried away lately, I didn't realize I hadn't commented anyone on this yet. Yours doesn't sound so different from mine - you just went about getting them in different ways! But, breakfast is good - tasty. It's a pleasure to eat whenever, although every meal, every day wouldn't be good. I know that.
