What did you have for breakfast this morning?

The other day, my friend and I went hiking. Prior to that, we stopped at one of the last "ma and pa" restaurants in the area and had a "real" breakfast. Mine was a ham, cheese and spinach omelette, with hash browns and English muffin on the side. My buddy also had an omelette. This morning, I'm back to having a "weird" breakfast, meaning whatever I have lying around that goes well with coffee. Right now I'm on my second cup of coffee, and I'm slowly munching away at a Safeway chocolate cupcake that my young neighbor friend's mom brought to me. I figure that carbs are carbs, whether they're sweet or not. What did you have for breakfast this morning? Do you sometimes "graze and rationalize," like I do? Have you had a "traditional" breakfast recently? I'm aware that "traditional" varies by country.

That's the funny thing (to me). If I had cereal (which I often do), I'd put maple syrup or brown sugar on it. So I'd wind up with some good carbs, a touch of sugar, and some milk (there's milk in my coffee). It's not THAT different from having a cupcake with coffee and milk. But it "feels" more right somehow.

I feel like as long at you are eating in the morning, it doesn't matter what it is, because breakfast is so important. I normally get cereal or a bagel and some fruit. I cannot have a traditional breakfast since I'm allergic to eggs, but! We did have some pancakes and bacon for dinner a few nights ago haha

@TheHorse It doesn't have to. Any time I made it, it is just flour and vanilla and such. And it isn't an aggressive allergy when the egg is mixed into things, I just get an itchy throat. When it is like an omelet or just a full on egg that is when it is dangerous.
@TheHorse I have eaten cake before for breakfast. The choclate cupcake looks very good. I hope you enjoyed it. It is nice to have a nice home cooked breakfast. I like my breakfast. I had kelloggs with milk, chocolate spread and peanut butter on a spoon and hot chocolate. It was good. That is my breakfast in summer.
