Wise Words for Wives (and Quite Frankly, For Husbands, Partners and Roomates Too!)


Don't let breakfast be a 'catch if you can' meal. Long touted as the most important meal of the day, it supplies the essential fuel your body (and the bodies of your family) needs and when prepared and enjoyed with a little care can be one of the nicest ways to start your day!



If you are a 'stay at home parent', wake up early enough to prepare a proper breakfast for yourself and let's not forget the rest of the family. Try having breakfast ready for your family when they come to the table. Not only will they be thrilled to have a nutritious meal waiting for them but think of how much quicker you will get them out the door and out of your hair to spend the morning the way you like (not that getting rid of our families is our goal, right)!

If you are one of the working masses like most of us, having a streamlined breakfast routine that includes a quick but nutritious meal will always work in your favor. It will keep your tummy from growling like a beast during a morning meeting and keep you from being famished at noon, diving into anything that doesn't move to satisfy your hunger!

And since we are on the topic of breakfast, why don't you break out the nice plates, pretty bowls and glasses you keep hidden away in your cupboards that only see the light when you have company? No better way to elevate your morning and just might prompt you to keep your day going on the right foot!
Aren't we all worth a little fine living?

Great post! Breakfast really is so important, but people often opt for that extra 5 minutes of sleep. I need to get up earlier.

You are inspiring me! Too often I am short-order cook rather than hostess in the morning!

Breakfast like a King, lunch like a Prince, dine like a pauper. An excellent rule for a good life.

Great Post... vir beatum above says it well!! I was going to say Breakfast Like a King, Lunch like a Queen and Dine like a pauper.. In this busy world ... mornings may actually be the only/best time to catch every one together, if we could all get up that extra 5-10 minutes earlier ~ how wonderful it would be! ..HHL

I agree 100%. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and what better way to start it than a nice sit down breakfast together. I admit it does take a little planning, but so worth it!
Bon weekend,

What a sweet post. We always try to have breakfast together. Not only because of the meal, but because I like spending at least one meal together as a family, the three of us. x

I sit with my youngest while he eats breakfast every morning. The older one eats after we leave for our school. (He's now in junior high.)

On Saturdays, I go all out with pancakes, sausage, or omelets. Love our Saturday brunches!
