I eat two breakfasts.
Is that weird? It might be weird. I feel like you�re giving me a weird look. And no, I am not a hobbit.
Eating two small meals in the morning just seems to work for me rather than combining them into one larger meal later. I like to eat right after I get up, but if I eat too much too early, I find that my stomach tends to get unhappy with me.
So I end up eating a second breakfast. For my first breakfast, I like to eat something light and nutritious like yogurt or cottage cheese. The thought of shoving my face into a cinnamon bun just after getting up doesn�t quite work for me. That�s what the second breakfast is for. It�s during this time period that I like to eat the heavier goodies–the rolls, coffee cakes, etc.
It used to be that coffee cake wasn�t offered too often in our household because Luke grew up without ever eating a proper coffeecake. The cakes he had experienced in the past were sad, desiccated mounds that barely qualified as a biscuits, let alone coffee cake. It took me some coaxing but I finally got him on the coffeecake train after getting him to enjoy this family jewel. The man loves banana bread, so when I turned the concept into a banana coffeecake, he jumped right on board. And being the coffee cake loving second breakfast-er that I am, I was pretty pleased as well.
Hope your weekend is filled with cinnamon-swirled goodness! (I�ll settle for regular goodness too.)
