It’s been a quiet week for me here at DF, not because I haven’t been eating (preposterous thought) but because I’ve been working on a food story. Better yet, the food story is for the Lawrence Journal-World, where I work.

My editor noticed my (somewhat unhealthy) obsession for this breakfast food (here, here and here) and suggested I write something.

Go around town and try all the eggs Benedicts I can? Chat with people about its deliciousness and brunch history? It seemed insurmountable to express my love in such a manner but I did it. Take a look at the story here.

The two questions people have asked me are: Which is your favorite? Are you sick of them yet? The answers: I love them all equally like children. The only thing I’m sick of is typing the word ‘Benedict.’
