breakfast vs. dessert

So here was my breakfast this morning.  Delicious Swirled Pumpkin Cream Cheese Bars and french press coffee with pumpkin spice creamer.  Funny thing is, it was also my dessert from last night.  I've come to realize lately that breakfast and dessert can actually be one in the same.  Its completely acceptable and you don't have to feel guilty about it.  Most sweet breakfast foods have the exact same ingredients that desserts do, with just a different name.  For example:
For breakfast: Swedish pancakes, for dessert: crepes
For breakfast: coffee cake, for dessert: cake
For breakfast: scones with whipped cream and lemon curd, for dessert: lemon mirangue pie
For breakfast: muffins, for dessert: cupcakes
For breakfast: fruit torte, for dessert: fruit pie
For breakfast: waffles with whipped cream and strawberries, for dessert strawberry ice cream in a waffle cone.
Catch my drift?  So next time you wake up with a hankering to finish last nights dessert for breakfast, go for it. And if it makes you feel any better, just call it by its breakfast name.
