1. When eating a bread meal one makes the decision to end the meal, clears the table but then decides to continue eating. Question: Does this constitute Hesech HaDaas?

  2. And if so, when saying a bracha rishona on this assumedly new meal, does it require a separate bracha acharona, or would it be covered by the Birkas HaMazon of the previous meal?

  • Thank you. It shall be a lesson for the future.

  • Thank you Alex for these sources. The bracha rishona was shehakol on crackers which were not part of the bread meal. So it seems that everything settled appropriately.
