Toast & Syrup

No sugar cereal
only Chex or Wheaties
but any day (or every day)
2 pieces of Wonder toast

spread with margarine
cut in 18 fork-size pieces
soaked in Golden Griddle
This breakfast

seems wrong for adults
(or for anyone in 2017)
but would be fulfilling
in a green year

  3. Sounds good to me - a daily comfort that speaks of a happy childhood.

  4. Good for you. I've recently been on a pancake kick...I have them for lunch or dinner as well as breakfast. And I have no shame about it!

    1. Actually, I haven't eaten toast & syrup since I was a kid. This past weekend I inexplicably thought of it, and was inspired to make banana bread french toast. Which sounds better than it actually was. Also I cannot make pancakes to save my life. I swore off ever trying again years ago. Too much frustration, too much burning and smoking up the kitchen. So... I am impressed if you are making them and eating them morning, noon, and night!

  5. I have given it to age. But maybe there is something in your words.

  6. I remember eating toast with syrup as a child. And some cereals.

  7. Oh my goodness yes! My grandmother used to make biscuits and I'd save half to smear with butter and dip in cane syrup. Maybe I need some...

  8. It is always a laugh to think what we eat all those years ago. Perhjaps the worst was bread and dripping; this was the congealed fat left over from roast meat and reused (mainly by me!).

  9. Childhood indulgences like this are great palliatives amid the hurricane of civilized adult responses we live responsibly by. Cream O' Wheat and jam and butter and cream!

  13. Wonderbread - my mother would never buy it! I had whole wheat and I was so jealous of kids at school with their white bread ;)
