If there’s one thing my stepmom knows how to do around the holidays, it’s how to keep people fed and full. I’m not even joking. Holidays in the Mintz household start early in the am with a Starbucks run and end in the pm with white chocolate mousse cake or pumpkin pie and they are filled with delicious goodness throughout the entire day. (and don’t even get me started on the glass jars filled with festive peanut m&ms. Please don’t. It’s not pretty for MY ARSE.) But, the most wonderful meal that is served is the giant southern breakfast.
Eggs. Pancakes. Biscuits and gravy. Pumpkin butter. Oatmeal. Fruit.
Did I mention pumpkin butter?
It is A SPREAD. Trust me on this one.
It’s also tradition that I wouldn’t dare bring up to Canada and try to recreate. This meal doesn’t belong anywhere but in Grammy Doris’ kitchen. Breakfast never gets this good and fancy around here. Pancakes, maybe. (Pink ones once!) Cereal. Donuts. Eggs, occasionally. The word spread does not enter our breakfast lexicon.
It’s something I always look forward to.
It’s something I always enjoy.
And it’s something I always wear my elastic-waist pants for.
