Now, I personally am of the opinion that breakfast is a waste of Sleeping-In Time. The rest of my family heartily disagrees.

Rylie, on the other hand, will eat shredded wheat until the day she dies.  Lay money on it.  Curt and Gideon: cereal fanatics as well.  Curt’s a Special K boy.  Don’t tell him I told you.

When I found this sign in my favorite antique shop Wednesday, I had to bring it home.  She had found it in a Heritage Hill attic on an old shipping crate from the 1890s.  Obviously, it was hiding up there all this time for me.  Can you believe it?

What do you eat for breakfast?

    My hubs, and my 2 younger boys go thru 3 boxes of shredded wheat a week. It’s nuts.

    i love that they advertise it as “palatable.” can you imagine Kellogg’s using that on a cereal box now?!? so cool.

    we also love shredded wheat around here. but i’m in a yogurt w/ fruit and granola routine here. fresh peaches and blackberries. makes me almost excited to get out of bed in the morning. and i got over my fear of making yogurt and am loving it!

    Coffee. 🙂
    I’m bad when it comes to eating something in the morning b/c I don’t like to chew anything, so if I’m doing well I make myself a healthy protein type shake and chug it down.

    Breakfast is a very rare occurrence. Give me some tea and I’m good to go. If, however, I feel so inclined, I feel cookies or a piece of cake make an excellent breakfast. You have the whole day to “work” it off. Plus, it’s freaking delicious.

    bowl of oatmeal. every. single. morning. with whatever fruit we have. funny how we can be so set in our ways? I chalk it up to not having to think much in the morning.

    I love breakfast food. Pancakes, eggs, toast, cheese, fruit, cereal, french toast, waffles, crepes. I love it all. I like to make egg sandwiches with bagels and deli ham and cheese. And butter. Alas, breakfast is not my friend. So, Lately I’ve been drinking green smoothies in the morning.

  • Laura

    I am the less healthy one of your friends…. my kids and I vote for Lucky Charms, hands down. Dan wants a manly breakfast of meat, eggs, potatoes, grits…. whatever. Lucky. Charms.

      Ry and Gus would love to be at your table. I had a babysitter when I was little who force-fed me lucky charms… and for whatever reason, the marshmallows make me gag. Especially when they melt a little in the milk. I know. It’s possible I am not American.

    We go through stages around here. First we had about 2 years of oatmeal made in our rice cooker. Two years of smoothies came next followed by a few years of egg sandwiches. Right now we are eating mostly yogurt and granola. This is mostly by request from Ella. We tend to eat something until we are sick of it.

      I hear you. I HEAR YOU. I can eat the same thing for lunch and dinner over and over again, if I love it. Curt, on the other hand, can’t even stomach taking leftovers to work for lunch the next day. BUT, he does eat the same cereal every morning until it’s gone. He’s on a 3 box rotation.

    If Elizabeth could eat cereal for every meal, she would. She favors Life, Frosted Mini-Wheats, and Cheerios. She’s a carb girl. I however, can’t eat it for b’fast anymore – it’s an egg every morning for the protein. When Sarah eats cereal, she prefers Raisin Bran. Occasionally she’ll toss in some of Elizabeth’s favorites with it, but it’s only for show.

  • Bev

    My favorite cereal is Kashi Go Lean Crisp Toasted Blueberry Crumble. Anne and Ben (not counting the occasional sugar cereal) really like Crunchy Granola Raisin Bran.
    On a separate note, what and where is your favorite antique store????

    • texasnorth

      The absolute best place for ME and my style… and furniture… is Kathy’s place next to Vann’s Pastry Shop on Fulton. I think it’s East Fulton Art & Antiques? Not certain on that… but man, do I love that place. Have bought LOTS of things there. She does a great job restoring things. I also shop the store across from Wolfgang’s on the corner of Lake and Wealthy.
