Breakfasts of Champions

Just a light Friday post, featuring some recent breakfasts.

But first, remember that Magazine Monday is coming up this Monday, so if you have made a magazine recipe you'd like me to link to, please send you submissions in by Sunday evening. My email is wandering_coyoteATyahooDOTca. Thanks!

Now, breakfast.

1. Huckleberry Gruel.

Sounds Dickensian - sort of - doesn't it? I think this sounds slightly more interesting than huckleberry oatmeal. But I do have to say, I like my oatmeal a little thinner than most people, so even though it's not as watery as a gruel, it's definitely not the stick-to-your-ribs kind of oatmeal that is more popular. I had this bowl with some maple syrup and it was a great breakfast! I love the colour huckleberries turn everything.



2. Ah, left over Chinese food - the breakfast of champions! On Monday, I went out on a girls night to have dinner & see a movie. Since the big theatre is in Castlegar, we chose to go to Chopsticks for dinner. Because of my appetite issues, this was great for me because I had such a wide variety of things to choose from, and I made sure to get stuff that I could take home as decent leftovers, too. I love leftover Chinese food for breakfast, just like I love leftover pizza for breakfast! So, I got a Wor Won Ton (the best!), only ate half of it, and had the rest wrapped up, and I got a combination plate that included chow mein, deep fried prawns, sweet & sour pork, and beef with greens. Excellent! I ate half of it, too, and brought the rest home for breakfast. It was fabulous!

Does a pot of coffee count as breakfast?

Most important meal of the day once you are awake and functioning

I'm not a thick oatmeal fan either and what I actually love is oat bran...have you ever tried it? It's creamy and the texture is totally different...

I'm loving your huckleberries. I'm a serious berry fan.

oh and yesterday I bought some pears and apples for a crisp...

I'll be leaving the peels on...always leave the peels on virtually everything! less work and good for you too.

Talking of breakfast I always eat peanut butter and toasts in the morning.

Dinner leftovers are the best for breakfast! I just ate a half of a chicken pesto panini, so yummy.

Leftover Chinese is the best breakfast! :D

I'm glad you had a good dinner. I too like my oatmeal on the thinner side. One of my favorite ways to eat oatmeal is Chinese style: brown sugar, evaporated milk, and a whole egg cracked in at the end. The contrast of the sweet oatmeal and salty runny egg yolk is awesome.

Love the breakfast! Always teasing the kids I'm going to feed them mice and gruel.

Gruel in any form makes me feel like I'm in an orphanage. Too many books and movies for this girl! I love most things cold & leftover for breakie!
