Love Affair

I have a habit.  Hey, if I can’t admit it to the world anonymously, when will I ever get it out in the open? And experts say that must be the first step toward recovery.  No, it’s not a drug habit, or anything like that, though I will admit to imbibing a variety of tasty adult beverages on occasion. And for the funneh ones out there, it’s not the kind of habit you wear, either!  I have a morning habit…coffee au lait, and a bagel.  Am I sounding dangerous yet?

Since I’m obviously living on the edge here, I go all the way every morning.  Shmears of peanut butter (the real stuff, just old fashioned ground up peanuts), runny raw honey from the farmer’s market, and a banana top my morning bagel.  Yes…every morning, unless hubby happens to be off work and awake (at the same time :P) and voices a desire for something less routine.

I guess I missed out on the whole peanut butter banana thing as a kid.  My mom’s idea of cooking included a stop at some restaurant to pick up polystyrene containers or Night Hawk frozen dinners.  I still remember when they came in foil pans, and you had to heat them in the oven because we didn’t have a microwave!  And breakfast was…donuts.  Every day.  So now I feel like peanut butter and banana is a treat, especially with organic bananas.  Yes, they are ridiculously expensive, but they taste so awesome!

After I enjoy my gooey morning treat, including plenty of coffee, only because there’s peanut butter stuck to the roof of my mouth 🙂 I’ll get busy and revisit the battle of the basil that began yesterday.  Might even get to a yoga class today!  Meanwhile, I’ll lick honey off my hand and the back of my arm, pausing to chase the occasional banana slice that flees in the vain hope of escaping my gaping maw certain pulverization and death and browse about in search of more groovy noms to share.

    You are so not going to believe this:

    But at least I took a cue from you!

    Oh, and I will never understand the peanut butter. Never…
