I don't usually eat breakfast. It's probably a bad thing, considering breakfast is supposed to be the most important meal of the day, but it's just not a habit I've ever had. This morning, though, I'm pan-frying a steak. It was supposed to be for stir fry tonight, but I saw an ad for prime rib flavored dog treats on another site and my stomach decided that the steak is breakfast, not dinner. Now I have to go buy another one for dinner, and it's all Pup-Peroni's fault.

I reached into the cupboard and grabbed a box. It happened to be a box of granola bars, so that was my breakfast ... quick, simple and no cooking required.

Breakfast roulette... I like it. My kids get so mad at me when I eat their granola bars. I have to remind them who bought them, and then the kindergartner reminds me that we pay with Daddy's money...

At least you didn't have prime rib flavored pup treats... I always fix me a couple of eggy-weggy sammiches.

Dog treats just don't have the same appeal when you're an adult that they do when you're a toddler.

@yukimori I don't know, if I was really hungry and really desperate I might just try one, especially the ones that look and smell like the real thing.

I made brownies yesterday, so I ate those for breakfast. Later, I got hungry for real fool and made sausage and egg burritos.

The brownies definitely sound delicious for breakfast ... or lunch or supper.

Brownies... now that's a really awesome breakfast! I'm tempted to go make the box that's sitting on the counter now... @purplealabaster Anytime is a good time for brownies, eh?

@yukimori Yup, especially that one particular time of the month, and then brownies for breakfast, lunch AND supper is not out of the question.

This morning I had: breakfast burrito from the kids' school - there were tons of class leftovers. Later I downed 2 mini sample cups of coffee from Trader Joes when I went there. And now at 11:30, I just had 2 chicken drumsticks, leftover from last night's dinner and a multivitamin - no more meals probably til later. I am influenced by whatever that moment brings me - ha ha!

Or whatever I can scrounge up that does not require actual cooking, although heating up in a microwave is still an option.

@purplealabaster "Scrounge" - yes, I do A LOT of that! I'm also a human garbage disposal for leftovers that the kids do not eat!

@much2say Oh yeah, "human garbage disposal" is a good description - it is rare that I actually get to choose my own lunch, because I get stuck with whatever everybody else does not want to eat whether I like it or not.

I have recently added peanut butter in our menu and so peanut butter with a chocolate spread is what I had this morning. I am beginning to feel that I will soon get fed up of peanut butter.

Are you sick of the peanut butter yet? My kids don't really care for it on anything. They'll eat it plain. I just bought some pumpkin butter, and they've been going crazy over it. I spread it on toast for them.

@yukimori I always get fed up of anything if I eat that often. I think the next turn will be that of peanut butter but not as yet Have never heard of pumpklin butter. I am going to look for it

You must have been really hungry. My breakfast choices are influenced by the time I have to prepare breakfast and what there is in the refrigerator.

I guess I was... all it took was a suggestion to convince me that it was a good idea to make that steak! My choices today are limited to "what the kids want." I bought a few boxes of Apple Jacks cereal this week, and they think they're the best thing ever.

You could always have breakfast for supper and than you are back on track.

Even McDonald's has seen the wisdom of having breakfast at any time of day...

Breakfast is not an important meal in my country. Generally I have a tea or a coffee with a croissant, and sometimes a yogurt. I lack creativity and I would not eat some fried meat for breakfast.

Quick and easy... that sounds like my type of breakfast! I don't function well enough in the morning to go all-out and make a full breakfast with pancakes and eggs and bacon and so on. Maybe I'd be more inclined if I had more coughee beforehand...

i think you have to take inventory of what you have then decide if you wanna wait or cook something different sometimes you can't plan ahead very far.

I now have everything I need for stir fry except the steak. It was delicious, though...

I ate a piece of the leftover chocolate cake, then decided that one piece was too little and finally discovered that there was too little to leave any. So I ate it all

We all know that breakfast is the most important meal in a day, but the truth is that we have so little time doing a breakfast by ourselves. I usually buy several bottles of milk and some bread at weekends and enjoy them as my breakfast on weekdays. Though it's not quite enjoyable, it's quite convenient.

I always have problems deciding on breakfast, between time constraints and just general sleepiness it's not the meal that I am decisive over. I tend to go the path of least resistance and often skip it or have a heath shake.

Time influenced my breakfast today. I am feeling tired and have to leave for work so I am having some cake with orange juice and coffee. I like homemade pancakes for breakfast but they need time to be cooked so I can only prepare them in weekends. Steak sounds a little strong for my stomach in the morning, I would prefer to eat it for lunch.

I don't think my stomach would tolerate a steak in the morning!

My breakfast is usually Milo (a chocolate drink) and perhaps biscuits or bread. If I am hardworking enough, I'd make pan cakes, fry eggs or noodles for my children and myself. But if it's only me, I usually do not cook in the morning.
