Letters to Breakfast

January 15th, 2012 | Posted by Alison Spath in Breakfast

Dear Everything Bagel,

Everything Bag

I know you aren’t the best thing in the world to eat, but you’ve really got a hold on me right now, so I’m rolling with it. Like a bagel would roll down a hill, you might say.

I justified you today with an early morning two mile walk to the bagel shop and then a two mile walk home. Kids at Granny’s for the weekend, husband at home in bed – just you, me, fetus and Jillian Michaels on a sunny Sunday morning? There are worse things.

Sure it was 13 degrees out, we can do it! You stay plenty warm and comfy with lots layers, especially once you get moving.

Like some long underwear, a turtle neck, down coat, wool socks, hat, gloves and scarf.

Cold Bagel Walk

I don’t know how you managed to wear just that skimpy paper bag, E.B. I’m still impressed.

(P.S., if I might get serious for a moment (boo!) I’m suddenly reminded of a visual lecture I recently watched on the single best thing you can do for your health.)

As much as I love you Everything Bagel, when you are dressed in cream cheese leggings and an over medium egg skirt, you are even more irresistible.

Over Medium Eggs on Bagel with Cream Cheese

Irresistible I say! You and this open faced egg sandwich of sorts is simply my most favorite, FAVORITE thing to eat right now. I think I’m going have you over for breakfast on days of the week that start with the letter “S”, although I could easily devour you on days of the week that end in the letter “Y”.

That’s all. Thanks again for the fabulous post-walk breakfast today, Everything Bagel. See you next Saturday. Maybe Sunday again too.


Everything Alison
