Breakfast Menu: Scrambled Me and Hot-Crossed Buns

Posts are becoming less frequent, but rest assured, ttwd is alive and well at our house. That said, I thought perhaps I would post about our morning here as I was spanked before breakfast........ all because of eggs........ or the lack of eggs. Scrambled over the bed and later walking with hot crossed buns! (Thanks, Windy!)

Let's begin with yesterday's grocery list. I made the list and took it to the store. I even checked the list and then added a few things that were not on the list. I talked to a friend who was shopping and enjoyed the quiet at our usually really busy store. I even did the self-checkout because I enjoy talking to the person assigned to help in the event there is a need. I put the list in my pocket after checking it and drove home with groceries secured in the car. I had made a Martha Stewart lasagna featured in her current magazine and life was good. Jack was golfing, the sun was out and the afternoon was mine as the lasagna awaited its turn in the oven. 

The trouble began this morning. We had a wonderful wake-up time and Jack served me coffee as we looked at our laptops. Then he headed for the kitchen to make us scrambled eggs for breakfast. I was getting into my walking clothes when I heard him come up the stairs and now he was in the doorway with hands on hips. I knew instantly what was wrong. The grocery list flashed before my eyes. Even though I started talking very quickly, I also started laughing. Just where were those eggs? he asked. Maybe if I had taken all this more seriously, I thought a little later. He took my hand and I was bared and put over the bed. The spanking began and the laughing stopped. I said that we do not spank for things like this. Jack said that we do now. Attention to task, thinking about what I was doing all were named as he spanked. Finally, I was up in his arms, and not laughing anymore. He told me my bowl of cereal was ready and I could bring my sore bottom on downstairs to enjoy it. 

After my walk, I made sure I bought two dozen eggs! I bought an egg ceramic holder too. Focus on the eggs! This is the perfect and appropriate color of egg holder...... bright red! Now no more grouchy husband and eggs are in full view! 

So how was your morning? 



  1. This was too funny! Sometimes it just happens this way. Something tells me you won’t be forgetting the eggs again any time soon!
    Hopefully tomorrow you’ll get your scrambled eggs and be able to leave the Cheerios behind! Thanks for sharing this one. xo

  2. Oh dear Meredith, sorry but I had to giggle reading this.

    Love the title! I had lunch with the family to celebrate a birthday...and yes, there were eggs lol, and bacon too.


  3. Oops! Meredith, you made me laugh this morning! I couldnt tell you the number of times I forget something on the list. So much so that I went back to the tried and true pen and paper grocery list (the one I used to carry in my head just kept erasing itself, laughing!). At least you now know never to forget the eggs!


  4. Lol! Mere, funny. My Scotsman is usually the one that forgets things!
    Hot crossed buns that way are a delight!

  5. I've learned that laughing when your man is serious will make for redder 'buns' every time. Thanks for the morning laugh, Meredith! .... hugs ... nj

  6. Meredith, Laughing.... I think you have breakfast on the brain because just a couple of posts ago, you wrote about 'saving your bacon.' We do some of the same thinking here at our house as just yesterday, I was invited to smoke Storm's sausage. Anyway, I bet your hide was tanned to about the color of those eggs up there in that picture! This was a really fun post and I am so glad you shared it with us. Hugs! Windy

  7. Hot crossed buns? LOL!!! Attention to task? I would be in so much trouble....I think middle age has given me ADD! You are a hoot!

  8. Thanks, Mere. I really needed a smile this morning. Sounds like Jack has been eating his Wheaties. Also, isn't there a cereal called Honey Smacks. Put that on the grocery list for next week.

  9. Hi Meredith, :) Don't faint! It is actually your long lost friend, Katie! Trying to get into the swing of things again. Balance is key.

    My morning is not eggs-actly like yours was that day. LOL! Great that you have a nice red egg holder to remind you to make that list, and check it twice when you go to the store from now on! Good thinking! I enjoyed your post. Many hugs,

    ❤️Katie xoxo
