Growing up, Kellogg’s and Post had convinced me that sugary cereals drowning in milk were “part of a nutritious breakfast.” But as I grew up, I came to realize that protein is a much more important start to the day. Nowadays, I have some eggs and maybe some breakfast meat to get my day going. And when I’m feeling like a little carbs to go with, some toast and butter fills the bill quite nicely.
To celebrate my love for these great American breakfast foods, I should probably start wearing this Pagan Breakfast God Mask.
This ridiculous tribute to our morning meat and carb ritual comes from the deranged minds at Archie McPhee, who insist you don’t need to wait until Halloween to dress up like this. Actually, I think this could make a great Mardi Gras costume, and that’s coming up in just about a month. The only thing it’s missing for New Orleans’ big party is a bowl of grits, but I suppose you could just carry that around in a cup and eat some while you catch beads and doubloons.
