Poor K. had to play catch-up. Since this was a weekend of no visitors, settling down with a book was a treat. But for the omelet, a breakfast described in "The Minister's Charge" sounded really good: planked shad, followed by a choice of chicken or pork chops, followed by omelets, and accompanied by a dish of radishes and olives in ice and I forget what else. Fish and meat for breakfast, at a civilized hour like nine or ten in the morning, will always seem right to me. Out of curiosity, I Googled on "radishes for breakfast" and was taken to the Bobbsey Twins. Obviously, the ones I read were all published before 1927.
