    Off-topic:
    I always wondered how Vonnegut never managed to get sued by Wheaties (or whoever makes them) for that book's title.


    Sort of on topic: I read that book maybe 20 years ago and recall the word 'beaver' is mentioned probably at least 20 times..... On second thought, let's not go there on this particular breakfast thread.

    I am an Irish Yankee so no possum for me.

    Here in the SW corner of the Hoosier State, I heard tell of some people liking
    scrambled eggs and brains, yes you heard me brains.

    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.

    Ahh, head cheese, yum! That with a side of scrapple is enough to put hair on your teeth. There's a good zombie joke in here somewhere.

    Strawberry popsicle (with a side of possum sausage, of course -- squirrel is a dinner food, thank you very much).

    The possum looks like it would fit nicely on the croissant!

    On weekdays, I have chocolate milk. I might make breakfast for my boys on weekends, but they prefer cereal. I like savory food for breakfast, and the sausage gravy looks good. Cheese grits are good for breakfast, too, but I don't make them often.

    Eggs benedict with side of fired possum? Washed down with a squirrel-based sparkling wine.

    I cooked French toast with a side of link sausage this morning. Very yummy. And a bottle of Chandon that we're finishing. I haven't had French toast for a couple of decades. My mom would cook French toast when she knew I had been drinking the night before. At that time, it didn't settle well on my tummy. I love that woman. I'll call her later today to discuss this issue and the 49ers win.

    Sundays our family tradition is my buckwheat pancakes loaded with wheat bran. Covered with Smart Balance spread and maple syrple (wife and daughters) or sorghum syrup or honey (for me). Blue berries added when available.

    Otherwise oats or stone ground yaller grits, with eggs from our backyard chikins if there is time. We have a local mill that uses a mule to turn grindstones that make organic corn grits, very coarse in texture.

    Mrs. ofos is lactose intolerant so we use Silk Soymilk. It's o.k. except for mac & cheese, not so good there.

    This weekend we had waffles not once but twice! Saturday morning we used the (Meijer brand) malted pancake and waffle mix and I must say I prefer the malted taste over regular pancake mix. Then on sunday we opened the (somewhat expensive) box of 'Belgian waffle mix' Mrs. Maister got from the store. Funny, but it reminded me of the way waffles taste when you get them at a restaurant like ihop or any of the local breakfast joints in town. I guess I never really noticed before that the waffles made at home tasted different from restaurant waffles.

    Add wheat germ and bran to buckwheat flour sometimes. Standard bread machine dough I make lately I call wheat on wheat and wheat with wheat. Unbleached, whole wheat, wheat germ, wheat bran, flaxseed meal, roll out onto wheat bran.

    We were a test market for that. They gave them away every Wednesday for a couple months. Very greasy. But I would imagine that you somewhat expect that from Taco Bell....

    My breakfasts: Thomas bagel with juice (orange or grapefruit), or raisin bran with juice, or quaker oatmeal squares with juice. Maybe once a month on Sundays, we'll have eggs benedict with fruit, or omelettes.

    There are dead possums all over the roads here, but we don't go there...

    Getting ready to ice the Chandon sparking wine (a brut, NV), and start cooking eggs Benedict with strawberries on the side.
    I love Sunday brunch.
