Breakfast Journey Down Memory Lane

I’m boring when it comes to breakfast. Most days I eat oatmeal with walnuts or almonds. But since my mom has been visiting, I’ve made some more “interesting” breakfasts. We have had veggie/egg scrambles, spicy sesame rice with poached eggs, fruit with yogurt sauce and whole wheat pancakes, and bagels with cream cheese, smoked salmon, tomatoes, red onions, and capers.

The bagels were huge, and half a bagel was more than enough per person…

I introduced the teenager to smoked salmon when he was a toddler, and he loved it immediately, and we had bagels and smoked salmon on special occasions for breakfast when he was little. I remember attending a wedding with him when he was about 5 and everyone marveling at the amounts of smoked salmon he was eating and how much he loved it… I rarely buy bagels and smoked salmon anymore, so the teenager was thrilled when he got to enjoy one of his childhood special occasion breakfasts. I love how food brings back memories…

Questions: What is your favorite breakfast from your childhood? What memories does it bring back? Do you sometimes still eat your favorite childhood breakfast?

Be well,
