First world problem

December 11, 2012


GERD + holiday parties = 🙁

We had a Christmas party this evening for members of the staff and CDC board, and it was wonderful. We got off on a lovely tangent about favorite toys we had as kids. (Remember the Chrissy doll? You pushed in her belly button, pulled her ponytail, and her hair grew! Turn a crank on her back, and it went back in her head. I blame those toy makers for confusing me mightily about hair growth.)

The party started at 7, so I didn’t have any of the delicious snacks since I don’t want a burned esophagus tomorrow. Wahhh – poor little me. I did make a ‘to go’ plate, though, so watch out, breakfast!!

What’s a favorite odd breakfast item for you? Hands down, for me it’s lasagna. Mmmmmmm….. starting the day with lasagna……

    Odd breakfast item…Pie, any kind, especially Pumpkin. Really, it’s not much different than a danish, right?

    Anything that’s not Carnation breakfast drink is odd to me. But if I’m going to have something unusual, I don’t care for savory foods. Cookies would maybe be my favorite.

    Anything sweet. Tastycakes, pie, a Berger cookie. If I’m out of Instant Breakfast, sometimes I’ll just make a glass of chocolate milk.

    It’s the Advent-Christmas season. Springerle for breakfast!
    Even though the anise seed I bought wasn’t very flavorful.

    Cold pizza is the true breakfast of champions, but I’ve never actually cooked a pizza before going to bed just to have cold pizza in the morning.
