When I was anticipating my pb&b pancakes last Friday, I had to laugh (on the inside) when I overheard this exchange between the waitress and the woman seated behind me:
Guest: What comes with this omelet?
Waitress: Bacon and hash browns, plus either 2 pancakes, toast, or a biscuit.
Guest (to her friend): That’s too much food. (And to the waitress): I’ll have the  silver dollar pancakes with bacon. Um, and can I get an order of hash browns with that?
It took everything I had not to turn around and ask how that was less food, but I was raised better than that. Plus, when you’re having peanut butter and banana pancakes for breakfast (even when you don’t realize they’ve got powdered sugar all over them), you’re not really in any position to judge.
Also while I was waiting, I noticed this menu item:
I have nothing against wheat, in Special K, in bread, or in pancakes. I eat some sort of wheat product almost every day. I like wheat, really I do! Seldom, though, do I eat it twice in one day, much less twice in one meal. I just thought it was odd to serve it that way, and odder still to label it “healthy”.
(Although now that I think about it, I never thought it odd to eat spaghetti and bread, and it’s the same thing. Only tastier.)
Anyway, that’s where my thoughts were today–breakfast. I’m traveling again this week, and I’m thinking breakfasts are going to be my best meal of the day. Some of these towns I’m going to don’t seem to have anything except chain restaurants and fast food places. I hope I don’t get tired of deli sandwiches and Wendy’s salads.
What’s your favorite, favorite, favorite breakfast, “healthy” or otherwise?
