I LIKE TO HAVE A NICE BREAKFAST FOR MY SUPPER

That was always a special treat when I was a kid because we rarely had a full breakfast before going to school. The weather's been so nasty and I've been feeling so poorly (barely slept a couple of nights this week), and I went all day today without eating because I didn't have an appetite.

Tonight I started feeling a little better and felt like breaking my fast with something a little more tasty than oatmeal:

Breakfast on Rebenstich Street

Breakfast

I had eggs sunny side up, grits, pork sausage, poached pears with cinnamon and drop biscuits. I never have a problem with my acid reflux when I have something like this and I think the fruit and maybe the grits help in that regard. It's rather pleasant psychologically too. The aromas and tastes seem to last a good while after I finish which makes things rather homey. Anybody else like late breakfasts as much as I do? Next time I may make hash browns instead.

We'll meet beyond the shore
We'll kiss just as before
Happy we'll be beyond the sea
and never again I'll go sailing

Breakfast food is good any time of the day...and it's a great excuse to enjoy a good cup of coffee!

That looks really delicious. Its a little after 10 here and I am hungry. I didn't have enough dinner but now I think it is too late to eat something. I may go nibble something anyways if I can find something. LOL
Ian is watching Disney cartoons that we taped today. He is going to bed in a couple mins. I hope your feeling a bit better. I've been thinking about you alot today and your mom. *hugs*

I have to be so careful about late snacks. Do you still get heartburn like you did sometimes when pregnant for Hanna? Btw, your life sounds so sweet. And I love Ian's wolf face. Heeheehee. I remember re-writing some of the lyrics for Werewolves of London for him after we'd first met. :)

Wow! That looks fantastic. :) And I can just smell the cinnamon in the poached pears. Yum!!!

I'm soon to bed; I worked tonight and was dog tired when I got home. Mr. Ed fixed that, and now I'm up late. lol!

And, yes, we will break fast for dinner, although we aren't truely "breaking fast!" Ours usually included scrapple. :)

I'm glad you were feeling better to eat this wonderful dinner.

I should eat fruit with more meals because it agrees with me. It's so expensive these days though.

Well, it's certainly exciting, but I wouldn't call it a fetish, or anything like that.

I don't think I have any of those myself ... fetishes I mean. But that might be a good name for a restaurant. Fetishes. Maybe not. I would honestly love to be able to have a restaurant and prepare dishes for my friends though. I'd even keep a crate of Honeycombs in the kitchen in case you ever stopped by.

I'm not normally a big breakfast food person (I eat bologna sandwiches for brekkie) but that looks so yummy!!!

I hope you feel better soon, Ed!

but you wake up at the strangest times
I used to like the bologna that came in a roll that you had to slice yourself. My mom would fry them up and we'd eat them with our eggs, pancakes, and potatoes or grits with syrup. That was before they started putting chicken and turkey and such in them though. I still like garlic bologna (real beef and pork) a lot.

I know I am late to the table...

I have never understood Grit(s).

I use it in sandpaper.

it is a means of identifying a surfaces smoothness

it is used as a statement regarding a person's toughness

it can define abrasiveness

it is not meant to be ingested

FIBER - ; that is meant to be ingested

not grit

I have never quite got the gist of grit(s)

Re: I know I am late to the table...
**LAUGHING**

Actual, to my understanding, the hominy is mostly starch and just about all of the husk/fiber is removed. I think they have to force it into granules. The thing about grits is that it's so bland by itself but picks up all the other flavors on your plate. Some recipes have cheese an garlic but I think most people enjoy it plain with butter. It slows you down and lets all the other flavors last longer and is very warm and satisfying in the tummy, especially in cold weather. The way your eggs and yolks and sausage, bacon, etc. meld with them is just hard to describe. When I was first introduced to grits I switched because I like potatoes so much, but now I like grits almost as much and it just makes a leisurely breakfast so enjoyable. There's very little nutritional value to them but, to people who enjoy them, there's nothing like them. Oatmeal would be healthier but it's really nowhere near the samr experience. Of course it's an individual thing. Now when it comes to something like chitterlings ... GAG!

That should have been "introduced to Hash Browns" ...
