The Pre-Redundancy of Breakfast and the World’s Best Banana Pudding

Dear Kid,

These bananas can only dream of being added to the World's Best Banana Pudding. DearKidLoveMom.comNobody does banana pudding like southerners. And last night for dinner we went to a BBQ place that excels at banana pudding (and brisket and BBQ and crazy good side dishes).

As far as I can tell, the recipe for their banana pudding is to gather all the Yum in the world, mix it with banana pudding, bananas, ‘Nilla Wafers, and probably Cool Whip.

Yes, I had seconds.

Prior to the World’s Best Banana Pudding, I had BBQ chicken (which meant half a bird), corn bread (with jalapenos), and a baked potato the size of Montana. Meanwhile, other people in our group were doing the All You Can Eat approach to BBQ.

My conclusion so far on this trip is that there is a lot of food in Dallas.

Certainly, a great deal of food has literally thrown itself in front of me in the last 24 hours or so. (Did I mention the seconds on the banana pudding?)

A person in our group came up with the term “pre-redundancy” last night. As in to be redundant but before the thing you’re being redundant about has happened or been said. It is an excellent term that should certain work its way into the lexicon of everyone (but probably won’t).

Last night it was used in conversation around the idea of teaching (adult learners do well with repetition and therefore pre-redundancy is useful).

Today, breakfast is pre-redundant.

Doesn’t mean I won’t be helping myself to a lovely start of the day (and coffee).

Unfortunately, there probably won’t be any banana pudding.

Love, Mom

Green Egg Shortage and Ham

Dear Kid,

Quick! Eat eggs while you can still get them! The Great Egg Shortage. DearKidLoveMom.comHave you heard about the Great Egg Shortage hitting the US? It’s a real thing, not a new Dr. Seuss book or (just) a bad intro line for a blog.

Having finished with Ebola, the Universe has decided to hand out a second place epidemic called Avian Bird Flu targeting egg-laying birdies in particular.

Which means that while the price of your chicken wings will stay relatively stable, the price of your egg McBreakfast is skyrocketing.

And that’s not really the problem.

The issue isn’t just that the cost of eggs is going up. The issue is that there aren’t as many eggs to be had. Hence the Great Egg Shortage.

So far, the average person (and by “average person” I mean me) hasn’t really seen a big impact. Most of the chain restaurants are still serving eggs and most of the bakeries have been able to keep up. Some restaurants are cutting their breakfast hours or pushing non-eggy food like bagels and lox (not really suffering too much here, are we?). And at least one grocer is rationing eggs. But at a limit of 3 dozen per visit, it doesn’t feel like a huge problem.


So far no one has managed to come up with a great way to treat the avian flu. The best medical advice appears to be “this will all go away once it gets warmer.” Which is relatively good news in that it’s already June and presumably it will get warmer one of these days. (Mother Nature–that was a subtle hint.)

On the other hand, guess what I had for breakfast while they’re still available?

Love, Mom
