Mundane /mənˈdān/ 1. Lacking interest or excitement; dull. 2. Of this earthly world rather than a heavenly or spiritual one

There are mornings when I make dinner early. I get up at six in the morning and start browning ground beef and dicing onions to make chili or mincing apricots and olives for lamb tagine. The house smells warm and epicurean and comfortingly odd--like breakfast for dinner but reverse. My brain works a little to figure out what time is really is--day or night, dinner or breakfast. What a lovely riddle. 

Usually on soup days, I eat soup for breakfast. Around 9 am when the soup is mostly ready, I have to taste for salt and seasoning. Today, it’s a cup of chili. I ate two cups of chili for breakfast. I made it with one chipotle pepper and a touch of dark chocolate--it has a deep, rich, slightly smoky flavor and it's a perfect breakfast. 

What did you have for breakfast?  Was it really mundane? Or extra ordinary?
