I love breakfast. So much so I often eat two breakfasts every morning.
Actually, the real reason I eat two breakfasts is because I am so incredibly hungry in the mornings. Then as the day progresses, I eat less and less and often I will not eat very much for dinner.
Breakfast #1 this morning: Puffins cereal and milk
Breakfast #2 at the coffee shop because it was coffee date morning with Craig.
Green smoothie concoction by Craig—who knows what went in there, but it was mighty good.
Toast with peanut butter—a staple every morning.
I also had a decaf cafe au lait with a little bit of hazelnut—my cheap version of a latte.
We talked, hung out, and avoided going to work as long as possible.
After work, I stopped at Pita Pit for dinner. I knew Craig wasn’t going to be home and I hadn’t purchased my lunch all week, so I splurged and picked up something instead of scrounging for something at home. Craig went to Pita Pit the other day and came back saying how good it was, so I decided to give it a try as well.
The process was the opposite of Subway in that you pay first and then they make your sandwich with whatever toppings you want, so that threw me off a little, but the guys working there were super helpful.
I ended up ordering an all veggie sandwich. They loaded up my wrap with avocado, grilled veggies, fresh veggies, and ranch dressing. Oh my, what it good! I also had a coupon for a free cookie. So delicious!
Speaking of fast (service) food, the DJ on the radio this morning couldn’t decide if places like Panera Bread are fast food joints. I admit that they are different than your traditional “fast food” restaurants such as McDonalds and Burger King, but, I would consider Panera Bread, Subway, Pita Pit—and places similar to these, fast food joints as well. Fast food has become synonyms with “unhealthy,” but I don’t think fast food has to be unhealthy. It is just “fast service.” Then the DJ challenged his listeners by saying, “how do you define a fast food restaurant” since the service and how your food is served does vary in these establishments. I decided that a fast food joint would be defined as any place you order standing up. If you order your food at a counter, standing up, then you are at a fast food restaurant, but if you are seated at a table when you order your food, then you are not.
What is your favorite fast food place?
Anyone else out there eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, and dinner like a pauper?
