5 Quick Workday Breakfasts

Dr Tanya is our host for the Five Things Tuesday.
Today we have workday breakfasts and she says:

Before the pandemic turned the world on its head, breakfast was a hurried meal. Some skipped it altogether while others had it on the go.
When I first started work way back in 1972, breakfast was a cup of tea and that was it. Sometimes Mum would stand at the foot of the stairs with a piece of toast in her hand which I’d grab on the way out because I was late and had a twenty minute walk to work.
For years I didn’t eat breakfast, but various diets and expertise instilled in me the importance of starting the day with something to eat. This also stuck with me
but we are not talking leisurely fry ups here, so my quick food to go choices are as follows:

1. Toast: As offered by Mum LOL, or thrown in the toaster while the kettle’s boiling.
I cannot start my day without my morning cup of tea.

2. Porridge: Two spoonfuls put in a bowl, covered with water, and put in the microwave for two minutes, again while the kettle is boiling.

3. Cereal: usually fruit and fibre or branflakes.

4. Ice cream, preferably Cornettos. What could be quicker than going into a 7/11 on the way to work and raiding the chiller.

5. Bananas. I love bananas, and if you’re in a rush, you can grab one out of the fruit bowl.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

  2. On the go breakfasts that you can eat in the car used to be my favourite when I was going to work.
