Breadcrumb: Today's breakfast is...

Num. 28:1-8 describes the offers that must be sacrificed at the tabernacle every single day: two yearling lambs (one in the morning, one in the evening), each with 1/4 hin of wine (about 1L) and 1/10 ephah of flour (about 2 L) mixed with 1/4 hin of oil (about 1 L). In other words, breakfast for the priests was lamb, bread, and wine, and so was dinner. Of course, the Israelites brought a fair amount of other sacrifices, but the priests were guaranteed at least this much. It might not be our ideal breakfast, but it's certainly better than cold pizza and beer.
