    home-on-the-range?

    "Time to get out of here, before she wakes up and corrals us into one of her home-on-the-range breakfasts. I don't think either of our stomachs is up for the challenge."

    What kind of breakfast is a "home-on-the-range" one? What does the narrator mean?

    All the food a farm (a range) can offer: eggs, bacon, ham, steak, hashbrown potatoes, and biscuits (bread). It's a hearty meal.

    Hope that helps.

    Sounds nice though... then why would the narrator say "I don't think either of our stomachs is up for the challenge"?
