Sunday Breakfast -- Who said cranberry sauce isn't for breakfast?

This morning we slept in a bit and awoke to another dark, rainy and dismal day. Our high for today is only supposed to be around 45, which feels colder when it is rainy and damp outside. This morning I made a big Sunday breakfast. The only thing I had to make totally from scratch (other than my fried egg which doesn't count) was my Cranberry-Lemon Macaroon Mini-Muffins since everything else was "pre-made". I had a batch of my Easy Cheddar Black Pepper Biscuits frozen in a Ziploc bag in the freezer that I just pulled out and lightly toasted to reheat and some leftover cooked bacon in the fridge from last night (made to garnish my Golden Cream of Faux-tato Soup with). As I reached for the cream to put in my coffee, I caught a glimpse of the bowl of my Cranberry Orange Coconut Sauce I made yesterday and thought about adding a dollop of that to my plate...but then thought...nah, that isn't for breakfast...and then after a brief pause of righteousness, my thoughts switched to...WHO said cranberry sauce isn't for breakfast??? Certainly it wasn't ME that said I proceeded to add a dollop to my breakfast plate this morning...and you know what??? I will be doing that from now on any time there is cranberry sauce "in the house". It was nice having a little bite of sweet-tart fruitiness along with the salty bacon, biscuits and eggs this morning...and lets not forget those 2 cute little muffins on my plate either! I actually think I enjoyed the little blast of fresh cranberry sauce better at breakfast time than I ever did at dinner time! Go ahead...break the rules...don't always stay in between the lines...enjoy your little dollop of defiance this morning...I did!  ;-)
