Gotta love picky eaters and little ones who don't nap. Last night the girls were so into playing (and finally getting along) that they didn't want to break for dinner. And, once they were ready to eat, they were so tired they couldn't decide what to eat, from the select menu of foods they'll actually eat. After some time of pondering what to eat, they chimed in unison that they wanted an egg on an English muffin with ham. I was so happy that they finally were calming down and ready to eat, only to be disappointed when I opened the fridge and found that there was one egg and no English muffins. My husband said, "Sorry, forget to mention we were almost out of eggs and I had the last English muffin this AM." Thanks, dear!
What was I to do? I could have gone to the market, even though I had planned a full shopping trip the next day, or I could back and forth with the girls to see if they wanted something else. Then, I remembered that Dunkin’ Donuts offers breakfast anytime of day, and that they have egg sandwiches with ham and cheese on an English muffin, just like the girls asked. And, I could get a hot chocolate or coffee to relax after a crazy day, at the same time, and enjoy it hot while the girls ate their breakfast sandwiches. :-)
Luckily, we have a Dunkin’ Donuts minutes from our house. So, we piled into the car and went through the drive thru around 7:15PM at night to ask for breakfast food. :-)
It is so hard to find fast food chains and restaurants that offer breakfast all-day for those of us that like to have breakfast at dinner like I used to do when I was little -- and, now my girls do the same, or for those coming off a late shift and wanting to grab breakfast before they go home and crash for the night/morning, or those simply having a craving for an egg sandwich, etc.

It is great having the option of a breakfast whenever menu, so that on nights like we had last night, we can get the girls fed and then get them ready for bed, without going crazy or getting too stressed out.
Dunkin’ Donuts not only offers a wonderful menu for breakfast, lunch, beverages and snacks (donuts and muffins), but they also offer parents especially the convenience of ordering breakfast any time of day -- let it be mid morning when you are done driving the kids to school and running AM errands and realize you forgot to eat breakfast, or later in the evening when your kids want breakfast for dinner or you simply want to enjoy comfort foods like eggs and hash browns, like you did as a kid. When a breakfast craving hits, no matter the time of day...head for your local Dunkin’ Donuts and order from their 24/7 breakfast menu. It is that easy! :-)
And, here are a few photos of the girls enjoying their Dunkin' Donuts breakfast sandwich last night. You will note that Savannah prefers to deconstruct her sandwich, lick the melted cheese off first, then eat the ham, followed by the egg, before finishing with the English muffin. She tells me it is a process. :-) As for Bella, she needed to get her pajamas on so it felt like breakfast time, before she took a big bite of her sandwich.

Yes,, that is my phone showing they are having breakfast food at 7:48PM. :-)
Both left the tables with happy bellies, and Mommy got a surprise night time hot chocolate that I actually was able to enjoy hot and not need to reheat in the microwave. So, you can say it was a win-win for everyone! :-)
