Dessert for breakfast
We never regularly had dessert after dinner in my family; but when I married, "I promise to love, honor and cherish and provide dessert every night, preferably in the form of chocolate" was actually incorporated into the service. Gailor grew up expecting dessert after dinner every single night.
Then one day she came up with the concept of "lunch dessert."
You can see how Bucky's post could be a problem. Anyway, here he is. EL
So, last Saturday evening, we did what we often do; we had breakfast for supper. We had scrambled eggs, bacon and toast. When we were done, I asked Kaikala, “What’s for dessert?”
She gave me that look and replied, “We had breakfast. There is no dessert.” ...
I said, “No, we had supper. We had scrambled eggs and bacon, but it was supper. There should be dessert.”
Why don’t people eat dessert with breakfast? Or maybe people do? We don’t. We don’t eat dessert any time we eat breakfast food, even if we eat breakfast food at some time of day other than morning.
It’s true whether we eat in or out. If we go to a restaurant that serves breakfast all day long, and I order a breakfast entree, I don’t order dessert after my meal. But if I order, say, a burger, a sandwich or a chicken fried steak, I’ll finish my meal with a piece of pie.
I have never eaten a piece of pie at a Waffle House.
I don’t think I’m odd in this regard. How many of you eat dessert with breakfast food?
