  • My friend, Sandy, told me when her grandson came over she prepared breakfast for dinner.

    His reaction was quite surprising to her. He said it sounds awful to have breakfast for dinner, because breakfast is for breakfast.  Another friend called me a few days ago and during our conversation she asked what I was fixing for dinner.  “We’re having breakfast for dinner,” I said.  She told me her kids loved that for dinner when they were growing up.
