I have always loved to eat breakfast out more than any other meal. I think part of it is because I am so slow to wake up in the morning. I am hungry, but just don't want to fix it myself. It is so much nicer to have someone make it for you. Since I don't have anyone to make breakfast for me at home, I have to go out. It is kind of nice to be around other people too.

My favorite place to eat breakfast is Key's in Spring Lake Park. I loved living up there! After breakfast I would go walking at the Springbrook Nature Center. They had the best food breakfast's there! The omelets were huge, filled to bursting and after eating one you felt as if you would burst as well. But, I moved and I don't make it up to Keys much anymore...

Now I go to breakfast at Country Kitchen which is only about 2 miles for my house. And I really can't complain, the food is good. I got here a little earlier today, 8:15am. Very unusual for me! My norm on weekends is to wake anywhere from 10 am to around noon. For some ungodly reason I was up at 6am. I think my sleep patterns are finally changing. But, I kind of miss being a night owl.

There are not to many people in the restaurant yet. I am by the window and there is a family with two boys in the next booth. The baby in the high chair looks to be about a year old. He is a cutie and keeps trying to make eye contact with me. His older brother might be around 3 or 4. It is a little hard to tell as all I see of him is his head which keeps peeking up over the booth to sneak a quick look at me. I don't know what it is, but dogs and kids seem to like me. The baby at one point held out a piece of pancake he was eating as if he were offering it to me. I shook my head no and he popped it in his mouth with a huge grin. I have always enjoyed amusing little kids and making them smile while their parents are totally unaware.

I usually come to breakfast alone. Most days I read, but sometimes I get distracted people watching. It is fun especially with families, trying to figure out the different personalities and the family dynamics. A mother ignoring her children until they do something bad enough to get her attention. Then she has to show them who is boss and try to control them. In most cases, it always ends badly. I am glad this is not the case today with my two little friends in the next booth.

Breakfast has arrived! Lately, I have been ordering pancakes instead of my normal, healthier option, whole wheat toast. It kind of comforting and reminds me of those special occasions when Mom would make us pancakes or waffles. I had ordered what I like to refer to as the "heart attack" breakfast. It consists of two eggs scrambled on top of chunks of ham, bacon bits and potatoes. In addition it comes with two pieces of sausage and bacon. Then of course, the pancakes on the side. I figure once a week won't kill me. I'll have a salad for lunch, maybe...

My entertainment, the family with the two little boys is leaving, so I guess I will stop writing and concentrate on feeding me.

What a fun post. I almost feel like I'm there watching the kids in the next booth...That's something I enjoy doing also. Making the kids smile is always fun.

The breakfast sounds wonderful, I say go ahead and eat it once a week. You can be good another day!

Yeah, little kids are fun. Last week while I was eating there, a little boy walked up and started talking to me. His mother was over quick and apologized, but I don't mind. Like I said, dogs and kids seem to like me. :) Thanks for dropping by!
