What's For Breakfast

When you think of breakfast, the first thing that comes to mind might not be instant oatmeal, but that's what Amy Baasi of Cherry offered up when she joined Heidi and John for breakfast (since Rob forgot). Weekends are for real, yummy oatmeal, but instant makes an easier start to a busy day. Either way, it all starts with a handy red teapot.

One of our Southern members, Karin O'Quinn invited us to her table in Orlando for cranberry, orange muffins, eggs, and . . . cheese grits. John and Heidi found out more about this gritty delicacy and about the trials of living in 80 degree heat while the relatives bask in 7-10 inches of new snow and highs in the 20s.

Dr. Amanda Doran, DVM, from Coleraine, joined Heidi and Scott on the Friday Morning Show to share her breakfast of toasted sprouted grain bread with natural, creamy peanut butter, a banana, and green tea. It's spring fever time in the pet world, too, and the vets in your town are busy preparing for porcupine quills, testing, and bug preparation. Like everything, it all starts with a good breakfast.

Joel Rosen of Mahtowa invites Heidi and John up to the wood stove in the kitchen for breakfast in stages. Coffee and grapefruit followed by coffee and oatmeal 1 and coffee and oatmeal 2 and coffee and oatmeal 3. It gives a guy the energy required to handle one-on-one battle with John in game of Tiddlywinks.

John Longnecker of Pequot Lakes invites John and Sarah in for a great breakfast of an omlette with onion, celery, potato, green onion, ham, and seasoning salt. It's a good start to the day, but not quite as good as the first food John eats every single day, 365 days a year, an orange.
