Kick start your day with a good breakfast

‘Morning, Honey!

on September 24, 2013
Elegance personified, even in the chaos of getting Thanksgiving dinner on the table.

Elegance personified, even in the chaos of getting Thanksgiving dinner on the table.

This morning’s rice cake topped with natural peanut butter and drizzled with honey makes me think of my mother, Jean Whittingham. She used to make us peanut-butter-and-mayonnaise sandwiches. As awful as that sounds, it did mean her four kids weren’t all gummed up with marshmallow Fluff, the sweet equivalent, as far as I’m concerned, of Velveeta.

I never saw a bite of dessert cross Mom’s lips. What she really liked was salsa on her scrambled eggs, buttery baked potatoes, and bread.

I inherited many things from Mom: a talent for needlework, the need to read, an ability to laugh at myself, and a craving for salt.
