If you’re prone to skipping breakfast, you might want to reconsider that choice as a new Harvard study shows that avoiding breakfast many increase your chance of heart disease. The research showed that older men who skip breakfast have a 27 percent higher risk of suffering a heart attack or developing heart disease that those who eat breakfast. The researchers analyzed eating and lifestyle data from 27,000 health professionals dating back to 1992/Judy Oehling, Q13Fox.com. More here. (AP Business Wire file photo)
Question: Do you eat breakfast?
On his Get Out! North Idaho Facebook wall, OrangeTV posts re: this “early afternoon breakfast porn” photo: “Broken Egg Cafe (formerly Rockin' Robin) was delicious and impressive. The menu is nearly the same, but the place is all cleaned up and the food is better. Full review coming soon!”
Question: Did you ever stop in at the Rockin' Robin on Government Way?
If you are thinking about having breakfast at the Garnet Café, here’s a piece of advice: Eat before you go. Or at least have a snack. The wait at this popular Coeur d’Alene breakfast spot can stretch up to an hour. That’s not to say the food isn’t good – it’s outstanding. The menu is straightforward, breakfast favorites done right with a few unexpected twists. Ham and eggs share the menu with spam and eggs, “everyone’s favorite,” the menu claims. If the number of empty Spam cans decorating the café is any sign, the dish is popular. The Garnet Café was full on a recent weekday morning with a healthy waiting list, but my companion and I snagged seats at the bar. We were offered coffee immediately, but passed it up for a Bellini, a sweet, tangy blend of peach nectar and Prosecco, which arrived in a generous wine glass for $6. Like the rest of the menu, the price seemed very reasonable/Kirsten Harrington, SR. More here.

My friends know my idea of breakfast is coffee followed by more coffee. But when I do eat breakfast, I do it right. This here is Sunday's breakfast at Frank's Diner in Spokane: Fried green tomatoes with cajun sauce, a scrambled egg, hashbrowns and biscuits and gravy. Delish!
What's your favorite breakfast and where do you eat it?
On Saturday, July 10, enjoy the third annual Parks Day Celebration. The Panhandle Kiwanis Club will serve a free pancake breakfast at Sunshine Meadows Park at 9 a.m. There will also be an inflatable castle, a bicycle safety course (coordinated by Safe Kids of Kootenai County, Safe Routes to Schools, the CdA Ped/Bike Committee, and Tim Skelton State Farm Insurance), Art on the Edge, Bubbles the Clown, horseshoes, volleyball, tetherball, and informational booths/Victoria Bruno, Coeur d’Alene Today. More here.
DFO: Instead of “Parks Day Celebration,” couldn’t we just call this the “third annual Parks Day Fiesta”? Just for kicks? ;-)
My breakfast choices are sadly pedestrian and even more sadly almost always involve the drowning of cold cereal in cold milk. I think, in order to vary the soul-deadening mundaness of my existence, I may have frozen eggo waffles this morning, except of course I will toaster them first. I will add both butter and peanut butter to my eggo waffles as they need something heavy and oily spackled upon them to provide them sufficent substance to leave my feeling I’ve eaten a meal of sorts if you ask me. Fried potatoes? ZOMG I love fried potatoes for breakfast. Do I ever make myself fried potatoes? No I never make myself fried potatoes/TUBOB. More here.
