Of course there was no such ruling. There are a lot of people out there, however, who have been brainwashed into thinking you can only eat pancakes at breakfast. Like bacon and eggs, where is it written bacon and eggs can only be eaten at breakfast? Years ago, returning from a day trip to Washington DC with a friend, we stopped off to get something to eat. Let me tell you, he was so excited to discover the restaurant served Breakfast for Dinner I thought for a moment the Rapture had arrived. He was almost as surprised that I had been raised without any "breakfast food barriers." That's right. There were times when we had pancakes for dinner. Sometimes we would have scrambled eggs and bacon! My brother was a cold cereal aficionado. Booberry, Frankenberry, Count Chocula and Captain Crunch were all he ate... ever. Did they stunt his growth? Did they do him wrong? Nope. Today he gets paid rather well to write code for things hospitals use, don't ask me what, I don't know.
At some long, forgotten point in our past, some pudding head sat at a desk and divided foods up into groups, those which would be great for you in the morning and those which might not be so hot. What's interesting is that the box I bought makes both pancakes and waffles. Paradoxically, while one is considered a breakfast staple, the other can be eaten any time of the days. Ever hear of Chicken and Waffles? With this mix you could have Chicken and Funfetti waffles. Wouldn't that be a colorful dinner? People forget that their stomach doesn't know what time it is. When it gets hungry all it wants is to be fed. You could feed it ice cream for breakfast and it wouldn't care. I think we should start a revolution and start eating breakfast for dinner. Tomorrow morning, instead of nuking a bowl of oatmeal, order a pizza instead. Yum!
