Musings: Breakfast for Dinner

Yesterday was a crazy-busy work day for me, and consequently lunch didn’t happen until 3:30pm. On top of that, my husband had to work late, so it was another dinner for one night for me. I don’t mind at all, in fact since my lunch was so late a regular dinner wouldn’t have worked anyway. So, the stars were aligned…or something like that.

As 9pm approached, I started to get hungry, but not hungry enough to make an actual dinner for myself like some nights when I’m flying solo. So what did I end up having? Cereal!

I’ve loved breakfast for dinner ever since I was little, and I’m not sure there’s a kid out there who doesn’t. Whether it’s pancakes, waffles, crepes, omelets, fried eggs, or just…plain…cereal, sometimes there’s nothing better than breakfast for dinner. What a treat, especially as a child when having something like eggs after 10am seems almost, well, bad! But really, it’s oh-so-good. Mmmmm….

What’s your favorite breakfast for dinner memory?

    I loved breakfast for dinner growing up. My mother made cornmeal waffles, or French Toast. I remember letting butter melt into the crevices of the waffle, then sprinkling with powdered sugar, and watching it morph into almost buttercream frosting.
