Realistic B&B Breakfasts
I sometimes day dream about renovating an old home and running a B&B. I often try to envision what I might offer when the "breakfast" part rolls around. I'd like to think I'd be creative, generous and fancy but I usually fall to earth with the realization that putting on a daily morning performance in the kitchen would cease being fun very quickly. Tell me, first, what have you encountered as an offered breakfast in your travels and, secondly, if this were your dream, what would you realistically commit to when it was time to set the table?
