A Royal Breakfast

Saturday night we were reading The BFG for our usual bedtime read aloud when we came to a chapter called "The Royal Breakfast". The kids didn't want to stop reading but it was 10pm and I had already been reading for an hour. So, I made this deal with the kids:

I would make a royal breakfast of our own the next morning, serving the same foods that the BFG and Sophie would be eating with the Queen of England, and read the chapter while we ate.

They agreed. The next morning we enjoyed fried eggs, fried potatoes, bacon, sausage, and toast with jam. I substituted orange juice for the coffee. In between bites, I read the chapter, which we enjoyed immensely.

Here we are enjoying our royal breakfast. Hubby joined us. BTW, he was sticking his tongue out until he realized I'd probably post the photo anyway, so he thought better of it.

We've now finished the book. We enjoyed it very much. We're reading Danny The Champion of the World by the same author next because it has a whole chapter with the BFG in it. Sounded like fun.
