A Granny Smith apple and a big sipper cup of water. The same as just about every workday morning for four years.

I have to do something to maintain this girlish figure.

OK, today I broke my habit.

Breakfast today was the traditional big glass of water and the first ripe, juicy, flavorful tomato of the year from my own personal tomato plant.

Hello, summer.

A glass of water.

Do you have any idea how hard it is to make it without throwing up?

Surely is not natural for the sun to be so bright so early in the morning.

Just now having breakfast after getting lunches made, the kids dressed and off to day camp, running to the pediatrician to drop off school health forms, home depot for paint, and the grocery store. :P

Turkey on rye, and a diet Coke (with Splenda) because I am feeling insufficiently caffeinated.

Whole beans. I grind fresh every morning.

Didn't exactly have the patience to pull out mortar and pestle.

time for a hot breakfast that doesn't taste freeze-dried. Only one place will do: Red Hut Waffle Shop in South Lake Tahoe.

We had the specials: fresh strawberry pancakes and a four-egg omelet with scallion, tomatoes, avocado, jack cheese and sour cream, side of hash browns with a good amount of tabasco, and ice. cold. milk.

French toast made with cinnamon swirl bread.  Unbelievable.

That sounds delish!

I had smoked Pacific salmon salad on a "bagel" with sliced tomatoes, and a "moosed" latte from Caribou Coffee.

Emmi brand grapefruit yogurt (endorsed by Susan Lucci! :lol: ), and Familia muesli.

I have only been able to find Emmi at Balducci's. If anyone knows a less expensive place to buy it I would be much obliged. All of the flavors are good, but the grapefruit is excellent.

A leftover baked maple egg custard and a whole wheat/wheat bran/wheat germ/oatmeal/dried fruit muffin - the muffin, a Jan/Feb Cooking Light recipe, is must tastier than it sounds. I baked about 3 batches at once and have kept them in the freezer at no detriment to their flavor/texture.

Breakfast on Sunday morning was popovers. They didn't pop as much as I would have liked, but they were tasty. In the picture, the popovers look like corn muffins. :lol:

We split: bagels from the 5th Avenue (Brooklyn) Bageltique: one "everything" spread with Amish butter, one sesame spread with Greek yogurt. Seedless watermelon chunks. Kosher Coke.

I've started checking my BP in the morning just for grins. 110 over 65. Obviously there's room for more artery spackle...I mean bacon :)
