Christmas breakfast request

In the spirit of the holiday season last night while trimming the Christmas tree, Mrs Fastball generously offered to prepare whatever breakfast we wanted on the morning of the 25th. The results are in:

Fitzroy Fastball & Mrs Fastball: Mrs Fastball's family has a tradition of making a turkey on Christmas Eve, and serving up a fresh turkey sandwich for breakfast. Good eatin' and good enough for Mom and Dad.

Fitzroy Junior: Eleven year-old Fitzroy Junior asked for waffles. Mrs Fastball offered to make fresh waffles and use the real maple syrup we have left over from last spring. Fitzroy Junior insisted on Eggos and Aunt Jemima.

Caveman: As  readers of the blog know, the Caveman, eight years old, has an interesting palate. His precise, detailed request for breakfast on Christmas morning:

  • Uncle Ben's "Bistro Express" Risotto (one bag)
  • Bacon (one pound)
  • Hot dog weiners (two, no bun)
  • "And for dessert I think I would like a shortbread cookie."
