This is the LAST of twelve weekly posts sponsored by BlogHer and Kellogg's.
This week's topic is Morning Rituals: Do you have any annual breakfast traditions? A special Christmas breakfast, maybe, or special birthday breakfasts, or a special Easter breakfast?
When I was a child, my family had a birthday breakfast ritual: the Birthday Girl or Birthday Boy was served breakfast in bed, which meant that she or he had to pretend to be asleep while the rest of the family clanged and clattered around and shushed each other. Then the family came in singing the happy birthday song and carrying the breakfast-in-bed tray (a white-painted wooden thing with two magazine-rack-type things on the sides and a center tray that could be propped at a variety of angles---this was also the sick-in-bed tray). The breakfast was always, ALWAYS, sweet rolls from a can, the kind with orange frosting, with lit candles stuck into them, and I'm sure that was perfectly safe to have around piles and piles of loose, fluffy bedding. Plus orange juice, and coffee for the mama.
I'm picking up a tube of those sweet rolls this weekend, don't think I'm not.
We also have a Christmas-related breakfast ritual, which is that the morning after Christmas we have leftover worstebroodjes (sausages in bread, dipped in, er, ketchup and eaten for Christmas dinner) for breakfast. I don't know if our Dutch ancestors used ketchup, but if not they SHOULD have because it is DELISH. Paul is theoretically half-Dutch as well, but uses MUSTARD, and has taught our CHILDREN to use mustard, and I think you'll agree with me when I say that makes him less Dutch.
Thank you for sticking around for twelve posts about breakfast, and I do hope you'll associate Kellogg's with BREAKFAST and CEREAL despite all my talk about sweet rolls and muffin scoops and autumn soups and kittens. And if not, I do hope you'll fake it so that Kellogg's doesn't regret hiring me.
