I recently had a chance to do something I haven’t done in years. What was it? I had a mother-daughter breakfast date with my mom. 🙂 You see when I was growing up we would go out for breakfast almost every Saturday.
My mom worked as a hairstylist and she and my aunt owned their own beauty shop. This allowed my mom to bring my brothers and me to work with her on the weekends and during the summer while we were small. Once we got into junior high school, my brothers quickly opted out of going to work with my mom. However, I continued going to work with my mom on Saturdays and during the summer, which is how we started having regular mother-daughter breakfast dates most Saturday mornings.
One of the places we would often go to on our Saturday morning breakfast dates was McDonald’s. When I was younger my favorite order was either an Egg & Cheese Biscuit or an Egg McMuffin with an order of Hash Browns and a small Orange Juice.
If I was feeling extra hungry I would order a Big Breakfast with Hotcakes, which truly is a big breakfast since it comes with scrambled eggs, hash browns, a biscuit, sausage, and pancakes.
My mom would usually order a breakfast sandwich with Hash Browns, but she absolutely had to have a cup of coffee even though she had already had coffee before we left home.
Now, a lot has changed over the past 20 years since my mom and I regularly had our Saturday mother-daughter breakfast dates, especially when it comes to our eating habits. I mostly eat a gluten-free diet and my mom mostly eats a vegetarian diet. But some things have stayed the same, like my mom absolutely needing a cup of coffee with her breakfast. 🙂
For our recent mother-daughter breakfast date. I ordered the Fruit & Maple Oatmeal, with an order of Hash Browns, and a small Orange Juice. This was my first time trying the Fruit & Maple Oatmeal and I have to say it was really good. Note: The Fruit & Maple Oatmeal is not certified gluten-free.
My mom ordered an Egg McMuffin without the Canadian bacon and a small McCafe Coffee. Although, I know she had already had a cup of coffee before leaving home.
It felt really good having a mother-daughter breakfast date with my mom just like we used to do all those years ago. My mom and I will definitely have to make time to have these breakfast dates more often. We can enjoy McDonald’s breakfast any time we want because McDonald’s has an All Day Breakfast menu. Have you ever had breakfast for dinner?
For our next date, I’ll make sure my daughter joins us for some mother-daughter breakfast fun. 🙂
