Breakfast For Dinner??

We celebrated David's birthday today! The fact that our birthdays are so close was one of the first things we talked about when we were starting our high school sweetheart relationship. We were on AOL Instant Messenger and my screen name was Dancer0426 and his was DL429. Oh high schoolers and their important AOL IM subject matter...

Anyway, Ayden and I went to meet him for lunch again:

And then we came home and did some housework while we waited for the birthday boy to get home from work. We have a family tradition that the birthday person gets to pick what we are having for dinner that night. I chose Donatos pizza and Caramanda's for dessert and David decided he wanted breakfast for dinner, aka: brinner.

David's Birthday Grand Slam Brinner:
Paleo waffles with banana
scrambled eggs
maple sausage
orange juice
and a side of cantaloupe
{Notice the bites? I almost forgot to take pictures...}
We actually used to have brinner more often, back before we were meal planners. It is a great go to meal after a hectic day when you want something easy that's still home cooked. It's also a great solution on those days where you find yourself standing in front of the fridge, uninspired. Most people have a carton of eggs on hand. They cook up so fast and are loaded with nutrients. Pair them with some sort of breakfast meat, a smoothie, a glass of OJ, or all of the above and you have a quick and easy, well balanced meal. Who cares if it's breakfast food! It's better that McDonalds or Donatos any day!!

"Happy birthday to Daddy!"
When Ayden gets older, I'll have to plan it on purpose every now and then. I think he'll get a kick out of it. And since we plan on having laying hens within the next year or two, I'm pretty sure eggs will always be well stocked at our house!

Do you ever have breakfast for dinner?? If not, give it a try next time you go to cook a meal and can't find the ingredients or inspiration you need!


PS - we checked on the girls again today.  They seem to be doing well.  I coaxed (or more like banged) the rest of the bees out of the package boxes and brought those back to the house with us.  We'll open them up tomorrow and see whether or not the queens have been released!
