Breakfast for Dinner

If it wasn’t for diners, the concept of “breakfast for dinner” might not exist. After all, who craves a waffle at 7pm?

We all do, of course! Yesterday as I was sitting at my desk, i thought to myself, “Mmmm. Pancakes.” So I fired off a quick e-mail to the wife that said, simply, “Pancakes for dinner tonight?” After I got an affirmative reply, I immediately quit my job and drove home to make pancakes. I threw in some blueberries and topped them off with this crazy good crababble syrup I bought earlier this summer. The pancakes did, indeed, hit the spot.

The flipside of this, the side that no one talks about, is the side of eating dinner (or dessert!) for breakfast. I’ll come clean and tell you that the other day, I had two Oreos at breakfast time. Don’t try this at home, kids. Leave the thrillseeking to the professionals.

Last night after working a 13 hour day, I came home and had two soft-cooked eggs and a chocolate cupcake. I was wide awake until 2am!!!

I do crave French toast and hash browns at night.

We have breakfast for dinner about once a month. However, absolutely nothing beats a slice of pie for breakfast. As for dinner for breakfast, cold pizza does the trick once in awhile.

I absolutely love spaghetti for breakfast. But I can almost always be counted on to eat last night's dinner leftovers for breakfast when I'm too lazy or in too much of a hurry to make regular breakfast food.

Cold lasagna for breakfast is also divine!

Nope. Just an attempt to be humorous. See, 'cause it would be funny if I quit my day job just to go home and make pancakes!

Knowing you, you would try to slide such a bombshell into a Ping like this. You know, along the lines of

I'm really fascinated by these new Oreos! They're 100% vegan, shaped like toilets and remind me of my childhood...Huyen will want to try them after she has the baby next month.

Is Huyen pregnant?

Here's one that many of you won't believe: chicken and waffles. Have you had it? It's a delicacy here.

No, but I think I might be. I've been having serious bloating issues and morning sickenss.

Here are just some of favorites:
Breakfast
1. green chile burritos
2. cold fried chicken/pizza with hot source
3. fried rice
4. teriyaki chicken sushi
5. doritos, beef jerky and diet pepsi, that is what Im talking about!


Dinner
1. stake and eggs
2. pancakes with a couple of sunny side up eggs right on top, no syrup just a little butter
3. local moko (fried rice couple of sunny side up eggs right on top with some BBQ pork and green onions), ketchup is optional
4. corn flakes with sliced strawberries or banana, you need smash the corn flakes first and add hardly any milk, this will minimize the soggy factor.

Here's one that many of you won't believe: chicken and waffles.
Have you not heard of Crepes, well the only think with crepes is that the chicken is rolled into the crepes. We have that for dinner once in a while. Rub a little grape jelly before you roll it, yum!!!

I wouldn't worry, Rafael. We've seen a lot worse.
