Breakfast. You’ve probably heard it said that it’s the most important meal of the day.
What about lunch? Don’t you need that all important mid-day break to clear your mind after several hours slogging away at your job? Isn’t mid-day fuel vital to finishing the work day and making sure you’re fully primed for a night of vacation fun?
And don’t forget brunch, the melding of meals that makes it acceptable to have sausage, eggs, bacon, biscuits and gravy, pancakes and a cheeseburger all in one meal. Okay, so, most brunch menus don’t include cheeseburgers, but you get the idea.
