Breakfast and brunch - the day begins. When mothers rise early
to fix a meal, we call it breakfast, but when we want to fix breakfast
for them, we take them out and call it brunch. Breakfast or brunch,
this is the start of the day, our welcome to whatever unforeseen events
wait in the breaking day. Mothers tells us that breakfast is the most
important meal of the day. Listen to your mother: nutritionists agree.
Brunch is a more elaborate affair and we combine lunch foods with breakfast
food to arrive at that combined word brunch.
Breakfast and brunch run the gamut,
from on-the-run coffee with a store-bought Danish, to more elaborate
ways of serving eggs, pancakes, French toast and pancakes. Ham and eggs,
bacon and eggs, sausage and eggs - all are classic breakfast fare. Sweet
breads are a favorite breakfast food. If you live in Japan, you'll have
miso soup, while in China you'll have congee. Breakfast is is a moveable
feast ordered to suit this very day.
