Brupper Time

Winston Salem, North Carolina
December 17, 2015 7:02pm CST
Breakfast, lunch and supper (or dinner depending your culture) are meals that we are all pretty much familiar. Brunch is a fairly well known meal as well. Our family has added a few other meal names to address specific situations. Lupper: a late lunch early supper that takes the place of both. Usually it is indulged in when we’ve spent the day out on a trail nibbling snacks to keep us going. Brupper: supper made up of breakfast foods. Tonight it was pancakes, turkey bacon and hashbrowned potatoes. Usually the result of not planning ahead. Breakfast foods are much easier to throw together on the fly. The only meal that doesn’t have a name of its own is the snack supper we enjoy on New Year’s Eve. Raw veggies and dip, cheese and crackers, chicken wings and egg rolls. Any suggestions?

That sounds pretty much like a banquet!

That sounds much to formal, it's a meal that's usually eaten while watching a movie marathon.

We've never come up with a name for the new year's eve snack feast either. Some years we actually eat the traditional new years dinner on this day. We don't always have this meal though.

My kids LOVE our snack feast tradition, when we aren't travelling we usually do it Christmas Eve as well. I really think it needs a name...

@Platespinner I'm at a loss for ideas. I think it should somehow incorporate "eve" or "new year" in the name though.

@ScribbledAdNauseum I was thinking much the same thing. How about N'yupper, Joanne, @Platespinner ? I don't know that there's much you can do for just one day. Another could be, Nyicnic for picnic,

My husband isn't a big breakfast food person so we don't do brupper often. Me? I could eat brupper every day.

I only watched one or two episodes of Seinfeld back in the day, and here I thought lupper was original. Snupper sounds like a possibility, thanks.

No idea but egg rolls sound tasty. Maybe I should pair our Christmas Eve chowder with an egg roll. I love your names.

Egg rolls are wonderful, I made my own for the first time this summer, but I think for our snack meal I'll stick to the pre-made mini ones from the store!

I cannot find a name for your New Year’s Eve snack, that in my opinion looks more like a banquet.

I consider a banquet more formal. Our feasting is usually just our immediate family, and it is usually eaten while watching movies.
