The real problem with America is portable breakfast foods. In Europe I can go down to the corner and get a lovely croissant of sorts filled with spinach and cheese or a delicious meat-filled pasty. In the US I go to a coffee shop and it’s all cake, overly sweet muffins and doughnuts. Also there are not enough good savory treats widely available. Chips are good, but I want more options. Nutrition bars and such should come in salty or savory flavors not just sweet ones.
More importantly HOLS IS IN THE HOUSE!!! Yes, she arrived today, while I was at work. The J & K household is now the H, J & K household. Starting today everything is new again! WHEEEE! I guess we need a pet who’s name starts with “I”??? HIJK…

Yay! I am glad that she made it. Now, between the three of you, you’ll be like a(n) (in)complete set!

Also, next time you are in Portland, OR, try Three Lions Bakery – I get my breakfast there every day and they have meat stuffed croissants made right there. I imagine they are delicious, saythe the vegetarian. 🙂 And they do bill themselves as “european bakery” so …

I agree COMPLETELY. I hate sweet breakfast foods, and am not even a huge fan of sweet treats at other times. There need to be a lot more savory options…especially, as you say, in health food or power bar forms.
YAAAAAY HOLS! Give her a hug for me? I am so happy for y’all! YAY!

Then you need a pet whose name starts with “N” and you could have HIJNK for hijinks.
