Break-fast Fantasy

Hi everybody. Hope you had an easy fast yesterday.

We’re curious about your break-fast (or breakfast, or break fast, however you want). What’d you have? Was it good? What’s the best Yom Kippur break-fast you’ve ever ate? We know there are some funny family traditions out there…put ’em in the comments section below.

I, for one, remember one of the first times I made it through the whole fast. I must have been about 10 or 11 years old. The first thing I had to break the fast—the very first thing to hit my naive, unsuspecting stomach—was a mini-shot of Canadian whiskey one of the old men had given me behind my parents’ back. I took a tiny sip and damn near heaved all over the food trays. My stomach felt like it was attacking itself. My sister jumped to the rescue, handed me a glass of orange juice that halted my coughing convulsions, and the old men pounded me on the back until I could breathe again.


So, what are some of your stories?

    A Chipotle burrito has been my break-fast of choice for the past 5 years. A nice little tradition!

    My family has done a bunch of things. Growing up, we used to get chinese food–sort of mixing up xmas with Yom Kippur. But now with my own family we usually make a huge “breakfast break-fast” with pancakes, omelettes, scrambled eggs, and waffles. get it?
