Title: What's for breakfast/lunch/supper?
Post by: Lumière on October 17, 2008, 06:47:32 pm
Inspired by Lee's thread, "What're you wearing today.." ..

What are you having for breakfast, lunch or supper ...?
Anything exciting, boring, experimental, inspiring,..?


Seeing as it is getting to supper time over here..
I'm having turkey burgers with bacon (well, one burger I hope).  Perhaps with a spinach salad on the side.

A glass of wine is definitely in order as well (Wyndham Estate Bin 555 Shiraz, Australian - my absolute favorite).


So, what's for supper?  :)

Well, glad to see our Aussie wine is being enjoyed, Milli.

We used to live in "wine country"....Mudgee NSW...and the area had about 12 wineries. We dont drink it much, but it was a nice day out, when we had visitors to go visit them and taste the samples.

Now....back to the question......

Well, lately we are on an avocado thing. They are in plentiful supply here at the moment, can purchase 3 for $2.
Our favourite lunch is to toast some bread, and have avocado and ham toasted sandwiches.

Last night i had Chicken Kiev, with salad......the Chicken Kiev pieces were bought all ready filled with garlic, the only thing is, when I cooked them, most of the garlic ran out in the pan, so there wasnt much left in them to eat. I will have to work out a better way to cook them....

As the weather is hot here now, salads are our main side dish....tomatoes, lettuce, beetroot, cheese, avocado, capsicum and cucumber.

Now Ive made myself hungry...... ::) ::)

For dinner this evening I had Bavarian goulash served with penne and a side salad with a light vinaigrette dressing, accompanied by a glass (or two) of Wolf Blass 2007 Eaglehawk Australian Merlot, my favourite red wine. For dessert, I made a fresh fruit salad.

The time difference never ceases to amuse me. I didn't even have lunch today, the US Brokies are around breakfast time (give or take) - and you already had dinner :).

But the German in me wants to know what Aussies think of when they say Bavarian goulash. The term is unheard of in Germany.

Yesterday was my daughter's birthday and therefore she had the choice of what to eat. As ususal, she wanted to have Chinese take-away food.
We had duck and chicken with various sauces (sweet-and-sour, coconut milk and peanut), vegetables and of course rice.

What I call Bavarian goulash, Chrissi, is solely my own personal name for the dish I make and is largely unknown to my fellow-countrymen, except for my small circle of friends who also make it.

It is a recipe I first came across in the 1970s when I was introduced to a German chap by a mutual friend. He and his mother lived in the Northern Beaches area of Sydney, where I lived, and had come to Australia to live, from Munich in Bavaria. They had lots of wonderful recipes, which I found very different and exotic, not to mention tasty!

The ingredients are beef, onions, capsicum, chillies, tomato, garlic, paprika, cayenne pepper, seasoning, red wine and sour cream, all mixed together and cooked slowly and served on a bed of pasta. It is absolutely delicious!

The old lady is now deceased and I have lost contact with the son. I call it Bavarian goulash as a dedication to them.

Now that's nice nice way to remember them. And it explains why wikipedia didn't come up with any matches for my search :laugh:

This is quite interesting. A Canadian is having Australian wine, the Aussies are eating Russian and Bavarian food, and a German girl wants Chinese take-out for dinner!

So what's on the table in Colorado? Last time I ate was lunch at a nearby deli. I had a tomato stuffed with tuna salad, with lots of delicious morsels of lettuce, onions, hard boiled eggs, etc. around it. It was a huge meal so I had half of it boxed up for another time. Friend Adam had a "Woody Allen" a corned beef and pastrami sandwich. We topped it off with some celery soda like they have at the Carnegie Deli in NY.

This post is making me hungry so I'll have breakfast soon I hope! When my daughter arises, I would like to make her an Irish breakfast. That consists of an egg, ham, potatos, toast, spinach and sliced tomato. At least I think it does...I have never been to Ireland, but she has, several times!!

Breakfast cookie dough, yes I know disgusting, lunch will be panninis , and dinner is beef in red wine, with lots of mashed potatoes and crusty bread to mop up the juices. Some type of alcohol will be on the menu, red wine for husband, beer for me and a vodka for Mandy.
So in the course of a day, I start in America, hoppng over to Italy, and finish off in France, with a quick nod at Russia for the vodka and the czech republic fr the beer.
What a cosmopolitan day. I might introduce Mandy to the delights of Pimms. A lovely summer in as English garden drink.

Breakfast came about 1 pm and was SmartStart cereal with plain Silk soymilk.  I just had some buffalo tenders (mango habernero sauce) and potato wedges at Buffalo Wild Wings, which is my nearest internet.  The Ole Miss v Alabama game is on and this place is a mob scene.

I am going home soon, find a comfy movie.

I keep thinking they are chicken wings?

You're right, friend. Buffalo wings are chicken wings with a spicy "buffalo" sauce. Don't know how the term buffalo got associated with a spicy sauce. But it brings to mind flying buffalos, which is quite a sight!!

Hi Lee! I think we call them "Buffalo Wings" because they originated in Buffalo, New York. If I'm not mistaken, a bar or pub in Buffalo started serving them and they became a sensation. Or is that an urban legend? :laugh:

Well, for supper tonight, it'll be herbed potatoes and salmon steaks on the grill... Caesar salad on the side.

I can't seem to have enough ice-cream lately:  cookies and cream with chunks of chocolate almond bark added in. 
I'll have a bit of that for dessert.

I overslept so breakfast was a large latte with an extra espresso shot.  (Can you believe there's a mini-Starbucks in the cafeteria on the first floor of my building?!).  Lunch was a frozen Amy's Tamale Pie and a cup of mixed berry yogurt.

I had a sausage McMuffin with egg and a large coffee (with Southern Butter Pecan flavored creamer - YUM - and lots of Splenda) for breakfast and a Lean Cuisine "chicken and pasta Alfredo" for lunch.  I'm actually making chicken parmesan and vermicelli for dinner - that'll probably be my healthiest meal by far today.

A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds, after all.  ;)

Breakfast - A half of a grapefruit and two slices of toast. And a glass of milk.

Lunch - tossed salad with lettuce, tomato, bell pepper, cucumber, orange sections, a little salt and some citrus dressing. And a glass of sun tea.

Now I'm drinking a cup of coffee! :D

Lunch - mixed green salad with cubed chicken and a balsamic vinaigarette

I'll have to get back to you about supper!

Yes Marie. Peanuts would be very wrong. I can't even bear to think about it. :laugh:

I'm getting ready to bake some pumpkin seeds! I coat them in garlic butter, salt and a few other spices and then I bake them in the oven! That will probably be my snack later tonight. I love pumpkin seeds! :D

I might try that sometime Milli. But I think it would depend on what I put in my salad. Peanuts and cucumbers for example doesn't sound very good. :P

It might be good with some chicken in the salad though!

breakfast: coffee and sandwiches with jam (prunes), my kids prefer sandwiches with chocolate spread, I also had a yoghurt and an orange. The bread was fresh from our bakery. It opens at 6.30 am!


lunch: 2 cheese sandwiches

supper: my husband's paella, yummy!

Oh, Thai salad dressing is wonderful!  Here's one I like:

THAI STYLE GINGER LIME DRESSING   

3 tablespoons peanuts
3 tablespoons lime juice
2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
1 red chiles, minced
1 1-inch square piece ginger, peeled, grated
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 tablespoon mint, or lemon grass, chopped
2 tablespoons water

Combine all ingredients in a blender or food processor and process until smooth.

I like to use it as a marinade for chicken - and now I think I've decided on dinner!   :)

I love it too.  However, the place I went to tonight, didn't make it spicy enough for my tastes.  When I worked at a different location, there was a Chinese place by it, and their General Tso's chicken was so spicy, my nose would run and forehead would sweat.

It was sooooooooooooooooo good!

Breakfast 4 or was 5 coffees
Lunch was cheese vienna bread toast sliced with hummus
Dinner steak stir fried with green onions, oregano and soy sauce (my 
                own recipe too) and chinese flavoured rice risotto.
Supper  Bread again, marmite sandwiches with chicken crisps

We went to the pub for tea tonight, they have great meals there.

I had crumbed steak and vegies.......its a large meal,tender crumbed steak with gravy, potatoes, pumpkin (mashed) and carrots and beans, and a slice of bread and butter..........cost.....$7.oo

Today my employer treated us all to lunch in honor of our Phightin' Phillies. I think there was eough food for the whole company to eat three times over. We had hoagies (subs or grinders to the rest of you) of all kinds, from classic Italian to tuna; stromboli; hotdogs; soft pretzels with various toppings; tomato or spinach pie for the vegetarians among us; soft drinks or water; cupcakes; even packages of Cracker Jack.

And everybody got a free Phillies pennant.  :D

Dinner - skipped it. I wasn't hungry.

Now I'm munching on some pumpkin seeds which I baked in my oven last night. I re-warmed them in the oven and they are very good. I'll probably make another batch tomorrow. :D

Breakfast - CheeTOs...

Breakfast - two hard boiled eggs, two slices of toast and a glass of milk.

Lunch - small tossed salad, a tomato with some salt on it and a glass of apple juice.

Dinner - skipped it. I wasn't hungry.

Now I'm munching on some pumpkin seeds which I baked in my oven last night. I re-warmed them in the oven and they are very good. I'll probably make another batch tomorrow. :D


If that was all I ate all day, I'd be chewing my own arm before bed.   :laugh:

Is that the same as a shishkebab? Meat and vegetables on a skewer grilled over an open fire?

I remember hearing Alex talk about kebabs, but I never asked him if they were the same thing.

Breakfast - half of a grapefruit, a bowl of Pebbles cereal with milk and a glass of orange juice.

Lunch - mixed vegetables straight out of the can and a couple of crackers. Apple juice for a drink.

Dinner - Baked spaghetti squash with tomato sauce, bread crumbs, onion, pepper and a tiny bit of garlic powder. Also a small salad and a glass of ice tea. :)

They are also called doner kebabs...i just looked them up on the net, but they dont exactly look like what we get....the meat is cut off a big hunk of a meat in strips like this

(http://i220.photobucket.com/albums/dd7/suekat777/kebab.jpg)

and then we get them wrapped in lebanese bread with salad and sauce (hot or barbecue)

Yes David......we have those too, and we call them kebabs also.......and they are yummy...

(remember what i said before, we get one word, and use it for as many things as we can)

Maybe the shishka and the doner are ways to differentiate between the two.

Not much of a cook here, either.  If I can't grill it or microwave it, I'm pretty much lost.  I do make a couple of good stovetop dinners - arroz con pollo and chicken cacciatore - but I'm crap at pretty much anything else on the stove except heating up stuff that comes in cans.  (Can't cook worth a damn.  Pretty good with a can opener, though.)

Tonight, I heated up a rotisserie chicken from Publix in the microwave, did some "Microwave Steamers" mixed veggies in sauce from Birds Eye, heated some pre-made garlic mashed potatoes on the stove (they came in a paper tray, not a can), and baked some frozen yeast rolls.

I'm the Master of Heat 'Em Up and Eat 'Em Up.   :P

What kind of sauce do you have with your spaghetti Brad.

An all time favourite over here is what we commonly call Spaghetti Bolognaise......or for short.....Spag Bog.....

To make the sauce, I brown some minced meat and onions, throw in a can of tomato soup, and a can of crushed tomatoes with capsicum and garlic and let simmer for a while....then pour over the cooked spaghetti. The cover with grated tasty or parmesan cheese.

Its quick, its tasy, kids love it, and its just as nice if not better the day after.

Katie, I cheat a little bit. I put one bottle of Prego, two cans of Hunts traditional sauce, one bottle of Classico Tomato and Basil sauce to start with. I add oregano, sweet basil, anise seed (really makes the sauce) and some garlic powder. Add the sausage, two sweet onions, and mushrooms.

Supper was a bit elaborate. It's a school holiday this week and my kids decided to make a jack-o-lantern today.

So, we had pumpkin soup for starters, followed by beef with an onion and yellow pepper sauce, potatoes sauteed in olive oil and rosemary and Belgian endives.  My husband and I enjoyed some cheese after.

And then it was time for dessert made by my eldest daughter: vanilla and chocolate custard. It was a very nice dinner. And that bottle of Bordeaux wine my husband opened wasn't too bad either!

Puff pastry (bought, not self-made) filled with a mass of leek, Parmesan cheese, eggs and vegetarian pâté, all mixed together. The receipt was on a can of vegetarian pâté I bought last week and it sounded good so I decided to give it a try.
It was heavenly - but alas, I was the only one from the family who thought so :-\.

About kids and their appetites:

we had Belgian endives at dinner. Wonderful vegetable, very tasty, a little bit bitter. My kids don't like it. But they always have to taste it. We always insist on them eating just a little bit of it. They always protest loudly of course. LOL

But who knows, maybe some day, they'll decide they actually like certain vegetables. I believe in 'acquired taste'. *she said hopefully*  ;)

Yeah, we (used to) have the same rule. The girls tried it yesterday, but my little one refuses to accept the "one bite" rule. Always has. And I've kind of given up on it. Gotta pick your fights.

well you grow whole new taste buds (I hear) every ten years or so....and I think the article said something about kids taste buds being 'set' for sweet things....

anyhoo...I know there are a lot of things I love now that I HATED as a kid.

Great thing you do for those kids, Jess. What I like about it, is you do it. Don't beat some drum about how we gotta do more for the children. Pump more tax dollars into the disinfranchised. Set policies to dumb down education standards so a few--the minority--will feel better about themselves. You take it upon yourself to simply do something. Didn't take more tax dollars. Nothing from the public trough. Your kindness and selfless devotion of time made a difference in these childrens lives. Wonder what most of those who are frantically debating (shouting) left-wing, children/people first, it's all about entitlement, wonks in the political threads have done for a disadvantaged child lately. Hmmmmm??

Brad

that is sweet of you to say, Brad.

It is a lot of work but we DO get paid...just not in money. It is so fun to see how the kids change over the four weeks. Horses are magic....you have to share them. They are a true gift from God. You know that quote from Winston Churchill? "The outside of a horse is good for the inside of a man" Don has a plaque with that in the stable.

We have some good calm horses but it is amazing to watch the horses with the kids...they KNOW the difference between a kid and an adult...and allow kids to get away with things no adult could ever get away with. Incredible patience. I have seen a toddler run up to a horse and swing on its tail while the horse just froze and waited for us to come get him....I have seen kids get out of balance and half fall off and the horse stop and shift to help him stay up...

they are special creatures.

sorry for the off topic, guys.

I hated onions - used to pick them out of my food every time. 
When we were little, my mom used to try to get us to eat our onions by claiming they make you smart.
Well, for all the onions we ate, homework wasn't getting any easier so we figured pretty quick that it was a trick. lol



Today...

Breakfast is half a cup of coffee & a bowl of grapes.

So true.  I was never a picky eater, but I hated green peas as a child.  Now I love them.  (Not those gross canned ones, though).  Bright green frozen baby peas are delicious.  I can eat them like a snack. 

Breakfast - Key lime yogurt, coffee

Lunch - Leftover homemade chicken noodle soup and a leftover cheesy garlic biscuit (which was dinner last night, cooked ahead on Sunday!)

Not sure about dinner yet - maybe some kind of stir fry, that's always quick.

Marie, what's a Key Lime yogurt? Is that a certain brand of yogurt? Or is a 'key lime' a special kind of lime??

Actually lime in yogurt sounds very nice.

I've noticed that some people have a very small breakfast. Some fruit with coffee, or just a yogurt. I need at least a few slices of bread to get me started in the morning. With coffee. And after that I usually have a yogurt and some fruit. I have my breakfast at 7 am and then it's 5 hours or more to go till lunchtime. I need my whole wheat bread to keep me going in the morning.

Today's supper was cod, with a tomato and cream sauce, with a touch of curry spices, served with spinach and potatoes. Dessert was left over from yesterday: my eldest daughter's vanilla and chocolate custard. Very nice.

Yep, key lime is a special kind of lime:

http://www.keylime.com/diff.html (http://www.keylime.com/diff.html)

Key lime pie is one of my favorite desserts, although it's sometimes hard to find key limes, so I have to substitute regular limes, which are not quite as tart.  It's a very nice taste in yogurt!

First thing in the morning, I don't have much of an appetite, but I usually have some kind of snack around 9:30 or 10:00 a.m. to tide me over until lunch - so I guess my breakfast is sort of in "two parts."   :)

I've never had Key Lime yogurt before Marie, but I love Key Lime Pie! It's one of my favorites. Now I have the urge to make a couple of them tonight! :D

Key Lime Pie

You can bake with a meringue crust or use a whipped topping, no baking.

For the crust:
11 graham crackers (1 1/2 cps), crushed
2 T sugar
2 oz unsalted butter (1/2 stick)

Combine these ingredients, press into 9" pie shell and refrigerate. Or use prepared crust.

For filling:
3-4 eggs
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cp lime juice (Key Limes if possible, but use fresh limes--makes a difference!)
1 t grated lime peel
6 T sugar
1/2 t cream of tartar

Separate eggs. Beat egg yolks, setting aside whites for topping.
Add condensed milk, lime peel, and lime juice, beat til thick.
Pour into baked pie shell.

For topping (or substitute whipped topping but refrigerate, don't bake):

Beat 4 egg whites.
Blend in sugar and cream of tartar, beat til stiff and forms peaks.
Bake in moderate (250 degrees) oven til egg whites are golden brown.

Especially tasty when cooked in beer...bu then again what isn't?

I'm slowly starting to appreciate Brussels sprouts. They're not my favorite vegetable though, I prefer green cabage. I would normally boil Brussels  sprouts (all dente) and then saute them in butter, maybe add a little bacon. Season with salt, pepper and nutmeg.

I've never heard of them cooked in beer. How do you do that? Just like you would make a beef stew with beer? Do you use strong dark (like a trappist) beer?

I'm taking notes here.  :)

Can I say what we had for supper last night (just 'cause for once, I made something sort of from scratch that turned out pretty damn good)?

We had chicken fajitas.  I made them with chicken tenderloins.  I heated the frying pan with olive oil and grilled some chopped up onions first, then I put a little bit of Italian dressing in the pan and sauteed the chicken for about 20 minutes, covered, so it would also cook in the steam.  I used whole wheat wraps instead of tortillas, and fresh (but store-prepared) guacamole.  I also cut up some tomatoes and green peppers and shredded some lettuce to put in them.  And I made some Spanish rice "Rica-A-Roni" for further filling.

O-M-G, they were yumbola if I do say so myself.  My six-year-old even loved them.  I mixed sour cream with the guacamole and sprinkled some shredded cheddar cheese on mine.

I am rarely hungry at breakfast time. Plus, I am now running on Eastern time while physically located in Mountain time. So, my stomach is confused and just gave up. So this week I have been adding a little cream to my decaf and calling that breakfast. But my husband sometimes makes me a breakfast sandwich. Yesterday I ate it for lunch. Today, I ate yesterday's lunch for lunch...eggplant, some roasted chicken, and rice. Now I have a breakfast and a lunch in the fridge. By week end, I often collect four or five meals in the fridge at work. I might be able to get my perpetually starving friend Adam to eat some of them. If not, the disposal or the dog will.

Yep, it's great in stir-frys.  Whenever anyone mentions baby corn, I always think of Tom Hanks in "Big" :   :laugh:

Breakfast was two fried eggs, over medium, and an English muffin.

Lunch was 10 "medium" chicken wings and curly fries at Boca Wings and Ribs (I know, I know, but I felt like being bad today).

Dinner will most likely be the left-over baked Ziti I made last night.

I am rarely hungry at breakfast time. Plus, I am now running on Eastern time while physically located in Mountain time. So, my stomach is confused and just gave up. So this week I have been adding a little cream to my decaf and calling that breakfast. But my husband sometimes makes me a breakfast sandwich. Yesterday I ate it for lunch. Today, I ate yesterday's lunch for lunch...eggplant, some roasted chicken, and rice. Now I have a breakfast and a lunch in the fridge. By week end, I often collect four or five meals in the fridge at work. I might be able to get my perpetually starving friend Adam to eat some of them. If not, the disposal or the dog will.



you need to make yourself eat something though, Lee, not eating breakfast makes you more susceptable to diseases like diabetes..

part of the reasoning behind it is that you wind up eating more later in the day which leads to obesity. (not a worry for you as active as you are being lately though!  ;) )

Mornin' all.

Brekkie is a cup of coffee today.

Lunch will be a sandwich of some sort..

I splurged today and ate a bagel stuffed with scrambled egg and Canadian (yes!!) bacon. An apple too! On Jess' orders! For lunch I will probably just take a walk since I am not in the least bit hungry.

Tell you what, FRiend Lee, this post raises issues that are much on my mind these days. Is it better to eat breakfast when you get up in the morning, before you go to work, because they say you should always eat breakfast, or is it better to wait to eat until you are actually hungry?

And how do you manage waiting till you are actually hungry, if you are stuck in your office, or otherwise on the job, when you actually do get hungry? How can you manage eating better--healthy--for breakfast if you don't eat until you are on the job?

By better I mean avoiding intake of too many carbs, too much fat, and too much sodium?  ???

I think if you are used to eating breakfast before leaving for work, then you shouldn't change things abruptly, because you might get lightheaded while driving or on the job. Me, I leave for work at 6:15 in the morning and I have no interest in eating at that time! So I just stash my breakfast and take it out when/if I get hungry.

And how do you manage waiting till you are actually hungry, if you are stuck in your office, or otherwise on the job, when you actually do get hungry? How can you manage eating better--healthy--for breakfast if you don't eat until you are on the job? By better I mean avoiding intake of too many carbs, too much fat, and too much sodium?  ???
If I'm about to go into a meeting and I haven't eaten anything, I will nibble on something anyway, to avoid those loud, embarassing stomach rumblings. Otherwise, I just take a break in my office or go to the cafeteria in the basement or a picnic table outside if it's nice. Sometimes I even call meetings there. Eating a healthy breakfast is hard no matter where you are. I keep a carton of instant grits in the break room. It can be microwaved in a coffee cup. I also bring leftovers from the previous night's dinner and heat them up for breakfast. Breakfast sandwiches and burritos are easy to eat at your desk. So are yogurt and fruit like apples, oranges, pears, clementines, grapes, bananas, and berries. I avoid doughnuts, muffins, pancakes, and waffles. Too much fat, calories, carbs, and sugar. English muffins are better than bagels IMO. Ham, turkey bacon and Canadian bacon are better than sausage or that sugar-laced bacon.

Breakfast was an egg and cheese with sausage sandwich on toast with butter.  Its a new thing for me to try and probably not very good for you.
Lunch was leftover chicken chow mein with pork fried rice and soy sause.

Jeff and Dev--I suppose those breakfast sandwiches they sell at McDonalds may be high in fat and sodium. The kind I make are not, and when I order one in the cafeteria, it is made to my specs. I like English muffins rather than a bagel, one scrambled egg (no salt) and Canadian bacon or ham. No cheese, butter, or fatty meat.

Burritos are the same way...they can be very bad for you if not prepared to your specification.

A little fat is actually good for people every day. It provides nutrients, satisfies hunger, and helps you think better. The brain is actually composed of fatty tissue! Just a little bit does the trick. Was it Julia Child who said "Everything in moderation."

OK. Unfortunately, I suspect not many people, me included, have the luxury of a cafeteria where you can get breakfast made to your specifications.

In fact, my fellow employees, when surveyed, actually said in the majority that they weren't interested in having our building expansion include a limited cafeteria service where you could get soup, salads, and so forth for lunch.  :-\

My weakness, which I'm proud to say I don't indulge too often, is the breakfast sandwiches from Dunkin' Donuts: Sausage, egg, and cheese on a croissant. OMG, they are s-o-o-o good! I don't even want to know the fat and sodium content. ...  :-\

Subway sandwiches are good. When I visit my dad, we often split a foot-long sandwich for lunch.  :)

Sausage, egg, and cheese on a croissant.

Friend Jeff, that sounds like a great breakfast except sausage has a lot of fat and salt. Egg has more fat (just in the yolk part) and sometimes salt is added while cooking. Cheese has a lot of fat. A croissant? Fat again, plus salt. Totalled up, that sounds like the worst formula for a breakfast sandwich you could get!! Next time you see a Dunkin Doughnuts, run the other way!!!

I just finished my breakfast sandwich...a plain bagel with no butter or cream cheese, a slice of ham, and a scrambled egg. Just right for me...not enuff fat to make my brain shut down, but enufff to keep it purring until lunch. I have a lot of vices, but not many of them are in the eating category. Don't have much of a sweet tooth either, though I'm succumbing more and more these days after hanging around Offline Chuck, who likes to take a little tea with his sugar and honey in the morning. He also FORCED me to try a multilayered chocolate and raspberry torte at the Carnegie Deli that I'm dreamining about a week later!! That guy is so baaad!!

Here's some data I gathered last winter that some readers might find interesting.

I had gotten tired of toast for breakfast every morning. I've never been real big on cold cereal, but from time to time I get a craving for a bowl of raisin bran or shredded wheat, so I started to vary my breakfast routine. Instead of eating toast every day, I varied it with Kellogg's Raisin Bran, Post Shredded Wheat 'n' Bran, Quaker Oats, and Thomas' Whole Wheat English Muffins, in addition to the locally made whole wheat bread I always use.

Then I got concerned about the amout of carbs in my diet, so I checked labels and put together this list of calories and carbs in what I was eating for breakfast.

Kellogg's Raisin Bran (1 cup with 1/2 cup skim milk): 250 Cal., 45 g Carbs.
Post Shredded Wheat 'n' Bran (1 cup with 1/2 cup skim milk): 240 Cal., 49 g Carbs.
Quaker Oats (1/2 cup dry): 150 Cal., 27 g Carbs.
100% whole wheat bread (2 slices): 200 Cal., 36 g Carbs.
Thomas' Whole Wheat English Muffins (1 muffin): 120 Cal., 23 g Carbs.

I enjoy Crumpets for breakfast some weekends..  a welcome change from toast.

(http://i75.photobucket.com/albums/i285/Lucise/Misc/CRUMPETS.jpg)

There are 86 calories in 1 medium Crumpet.
Calorie break-down: 26% fat, 59% carbs, 15% protein.


Of course, when you cover them with butter & jam (like I do most times)..the calorie break-down isn't quite as above.

Yep Jeff. We don't buy/have bread or breakfast cereal in the house. I believe breakfast cereal is one of the most unhealthy foods we give to kids. Most of it is full of sugar. No wonder kids keep getting heavier. We eat oatmeal sans sugar because of its proven positive impact on bad cholesteral. We eat pasta as a treat. We also eat rice and beans, which are high in carbs, but again, we believe the good outweigh the bad, and eaten in moderation is the key (IMO).

No - my job in Seattle was over in mid-July...I gave it til end of September but I wasn't finding work.  All the jobs for me at the moment seem to be on this side of the country for some strange reason.  Seattle is very much a Microsoft SQL Server kind of town and I'm an Oracle person.  I know I was only there nine months (west coast a total of 14 months) but it never felt like home for me, the local Brokie presence notwithstanding.

About the mosquitos, I dunno...working on mold at the moment.  ;)

Hey Matt!  Oops...sorry for the geographic confusion; I know better.  ;)

I've heard of baked beans on toast from British people so that doesn't sound so strange.  We have salsa on our omelettes and eggs too, so actually the spaghetti thing isn't that odd either.

Doritos...a nacho-cheese flavored corn chip full of preservatives and hydrogenated oil and other bad things:

And Chunky Monkey, "All Natural", full-fat-milk-and-cream-chocolate-nut goodness....banana-flavored ice cream with dark chocolate chunks and walnuts...Yum:

Do you want to know what is good?

Crush some chocolate chip cookies in a bowl, then pile some chocolate ice cream on top of it, and finally drizzle, or better yet drown the ice cream in chocolate syrup. Then sit down and enjoy! I call it "Death By Chocolate" because it's a certain artery clogger! But iit tastes really good and t's a wonderful comfort food! :)

Hey Matt!  Oops...sorry for the geographic confusion; I know better.  ;)

Hi Lynne,  no apologies required at all, my user name does not alude to where I live. I just mentioned where I live because I am not entirely sure of Australian culinary tastes. Though we are similar in  many respects.

I've heard of baked beans on toast from British people so that doesn't sound so strange.  We have salsa on our omelettes and eggs too, so actually the spaghetti thing isn't that odd either.

I am suprised you don't have baked beans on toast over there???? Wow over here its a scrap meal ie it takes 3  minutes to make and I always fry the beans after the bacon so they soak up the bacon flavour - yum

Doritos...a nacho-cheese flavored corn chip full of preservatives and hydrogenated oil and other bad things:


Ah thanks, but I am sure they taste great

And Chunky Monkey, "All Natural", full-fat-milk-and-cream-chocolate-nut goodness....banana-flavored ice cream with dark chocolate chunks and walnuts...Yum:

Wow that flavour is SO me! I hope to get to the US in February, so Chunky Monkey is definitely going down on the "Must Eat" list  ;D  That list as well as the "Must See" list is growing expodentially  ;D ;D

How do you prepare baked beans and toast anyhow?  When I've read about it from reliable sources (translate - British fanfiction  ::)) there seems to be a 'correct' way to prepare the toast, kinda like with tea, you're supposed to boil the water first and warm the pot and use real leaves not bags.

Here you can make baked beans from scratch with ingredients like bacon or ham or beef, onion, garlic, molasses, etc...or use them from a can/tin.

In the southeast US, we eat pinto beans over cornbread, which is kinda the same thing, though it's sounds more bland with the beans usually just being cooked with a little meat (bacon or ham usually) and flavored with salt.  And not typically for breakfast.

Does sound really good. We love cabbage, but usally boil it and have it with a bit of vinegar & pepper. I like to make this cabbage soup with leeks, onions, green pepper, beef bullion, canned tomato's, packet of onion soup mix, in a low sodium V8 Veggie juice base. Leeks give it a nutty flavor.

They brought back taco flavored Doritos? I didn't know that. My ex and I used to get those all the time, but they were always hard to find. I haven't looked for them in a long time. I'm not so sure they would fit in real well with the diet I have been on  :laugh:

Well Lynne theres no correct way to prepare baked beans over here, they're straight from the can, just heat and pour them on your toast. You are absolutely correct about preparing tea, you've always have to warm the teapot first (my Mum taught me that, my Mother drinks so much tea, even when she went camping she would take a china cup and saucer for her tea :))At work we always heat the teapot/coffee pots, cups and saucers.. Personally I prefer flavoured teas such as pomegranite and grape, or blackberry and apple and so forth.

I can't wait to go to the US, Chunky Monkey icecream is on the list of the "Must Eats" along with doughnuts and hotdogs (I know I have watched to many cops and robber movies  ::)) and I want to go to a "diner" ;D

Brunch a biscuit (bad I know but no time)

My husband cooked dinner tonight. It was yummy and a bit elaborate:

- appetizer: cherry tomatoes filled with Northsea shrimp and a glass of champagne (orange juice for the kids)

- rabbit stewed in dark trappist beer with Brussels' sprouts (tomatoes for the kids  ;) although they had to taste a sprout) with 'croquettes'. Croquettes are small mashed potato rolls, covered in breadcrumbs and deep fried. We had some good Spanish wine to go with that.



I'm so glad I taught my husband how to cook.  :)  ;)

Skipped breakfast, except for a cracker as I was packing my lunch, and except for a pint of English Bfast Tea with honey and half and half. 

I noticed that maybe people prefer not to have others tell them if their meals are healthy enough?  I like hearing everything everyone eats, and maybe people can keep their opinions to themselves if they are perturbed?  I just found this thread, and hope the sharing will continue.

Lunch I'm packing to eat with friends: refriend beans, kale, rye crackers, persimmons.

Dinner I'm hoping will be 2 skinny but breaded and fried pork chops, baked po, buttah, veg, salad, small piece a pie.  I've been thinkin about them pork chops for at least a couple of days, and now I have the chance to go to this little pseudo-diner that serves all that for about $7.95.  I say "pseudo" because it ain't no New York area diner with a menu the size of a telephone book.

I've got some black beans in the crockpot.  Not sure what I'll do with them tomorrow.  Maybe soft corn tacos of the black beans and sweet potato with a sort of lime/yogurt dressing, like they serve at Agua Verde, the little restaurant on the water that I took the lovely Amanda, Lynne, and Roux this summer.  Although when I think about that visit to the restaurant, all I can remember are the incredible ribs Roux and I shared.  Dang, forgot about those.

hey anyone is allowed to comment on MY meals..I KNOW mine aren't healthy, I LIKE to hear what people have to say, that is kinda the point to me..the back and forth, but I won't say anything about yours Clarissa.

tonight we are having pork chops (fried, is there any other way? Not according to my husband) and I have no idea what veggie...I think I still have some corn in the freezer, and maybe some boiled red potatoes. I make rolls yesterday and there is still some dough in the fridge.

I can't remember ever eating in a New Jersey diner specifically, but there are traditional diners scattered north of there as well in New York state and Connecticut.

Today was not a good day for the diet...latte for breakfast, cheeseburger for lunch, beef and broccoli stir-fry for dinner...Tomorrow is another day.

yumm! Are there two chairs at your table??

I had a b-fast sandwich cooked by my hubby (1 scrambled egg and slice of ham on a plain unbuttered bagel) for breakfast and a green salad for lunch (with 2 spoonfuls of cottage cheese). No dinner. I'm getting ready for the holidays.

Saturday, breakfast crepes with butter, sugar and lemon juice,Several.

Oh nearly forgot, also had a crepe with banana, cream and chocolate sauce !!!

I made a lot of batter!!

Sunday,breakfast skipped,
lunch oatmeal and marshmallow cookie,
Dinner, roast ham and spanish rice, followed by I lost count of how many, walnut and shortbread cookies.
Vodka and orange juice, large.

I had to make some for the school and made some extra, which now seem to have all gone.

So if anyone feels their diet is unhealthy, check mine out and you will feel like a saint.!!

You had to make vodka and orange juice for the school? What kind of school is this?

Today, I had a breakfast burrito for breakfast.

Saturday was an interesting day. I went on a 17-mile hike. Here's what I ate: Breakfast: 6 oz of grits with a pat of butter, 12 oz. coffee. Lunch: 1/2 peanut butter and apricot jam sandwich, 1/2 banana, 12 oz water. Dinner: some almonds and prunes. Water.

Sunday I didn't eat much until the evening, when I had a 12-oz steak, mashed potatoes, broccoli, and mushrooms. However, I was only able to eat 2 bites of the steak, so I'll be eating the rest for lunch today.

Monday.

At breakfast it was cold, dark, and rainy outside. I had a cup of coffee and wheat bread toast with butter and muscadine jelly.

At lunch it was cool and sunny outside. I had mashed potatoes and gravy, green beans, a biscuit, and sweet tea.

Tonite it's dark again, damp and chilly outside. I had a ham sandwich, a Vlasic dill pickle, BBQ potato chips, orange juice and coffee.


Morning snack - 2 vicodins for my aching back from too much leaf raking.

Lunch - skipped it


Did you skip lunch because you were conked out sleeping from the vicodins? Howz your back now? Didn't do a rake warm up, I see.  :-\ :P 8)

I know what you mean Matt. It's really not a burger without the bun.

I sometimes eat my burgers that way too. I'll squirt a little ketchup and mustard on top, lots of salt, maybe a little bit of lettuce and tomato and I'm good to go. A1 steak sauce instead of the ketchup and mustard is also very good. :)

Probably asleep from their yearly overdose of tryptophan. :laugh:

Breakfast - two slices of toast with butter and cinnamon and a small bowl of cereal (fruity pebbles)

Lunch - a small tossed salad with lettuce, tomato, croutons, a diced hard boiled egg and ranch dressing

Dinner will be seafood salad. My version is made with two kinds of pasta (angel hair and macaroni) steamed shrimp and crab, and a garlic parmesan sauce.

I've often had PB and J for dinner - but never thought of having it for breakfast!  Though, I do love toast and peanut butter.  A friend of mine thinks it's way weird that I spread PB on my toast, instead of jam...

It's really easy to make! Pour the cooked pasta into a large bowl and then add the steamed shrimp and crab meat. Next add the sauce. I'll usually cheat and use a jar or two of Ragu. Then mix it all together using a large wooden kitchen spoon. I always pull the shrimp tails off ahead of time. Sometimes I will add some peas in there. :)

Speaking of messy, I had a very good dinner while visiting my mother in Oklahoma City over the holiday. We went to a place called Crabtown. They put butcher paper over the table and then dumped a bucket of corn, crab, shrimp, potatoes, andouille sausage, and grilled onions right on the table. Then we dug in with our hands. Yummy!!

I am so lucky that I am having gourmet week extraordinaire!  As I've posted elsewhere, I have company this week and we're staying at the beach!

Dinner last night was an appetizer tray with fruits and stinky cheeses, including Stilton, Emmantaler, Chevre, and smoked Gouda.  We followed this up with steamed crab legs with drawn lemon butter.  A nice red wine to drink.

Tonight is poached salmon, stuffed with crab, and topped with a hollandaise sauce (V prepared the salmon and I made the sauce!)...dessert wine upcoming.

So...anyone want to start a pool about how many pounds I can gain between now and Sunday?

Anyhow re the stinking cheese: Just as long as you didn't have any limburger or stinking bishop in there you should be okay. I'm not a big fan of cheese but I've smelled those two and they are AWFUL!!! Peee-UUU!

Have fun at the beach. I wish I was there. It sounds pretty good just about now.

Yep - at a condo in St. Augustine.  It's about 40 minutes from work, which compared to some of my commutes is a piece of cake.  I'm trying to go in early so I can get out in time for a couple of hours of daylight before sunset.  I wish you were here too.  Now that I'm back on the right side of the country, maybe we can try again for that Kentucky pow-wow this fall.

Nope - I didn't know(or remember) about your niece's husband.  Do they still live around here?

I miss Florida. I lived in South Florida (Plantation/Fort Lauderdale) for roughly two years and I loved it!! Someday I will move back down there again, probably to the West Coast somewhere around Fort Myers or Golden Gate. I have lots of friends and family down there. I love it.

Anyway, no, Jason lives up HERE now! He's in Indianapolis. I think they may both move down to Florida in the future. I think Jason misses his home and family and Christy loves it down there. Actually that could turn out to be a good thing in the long run, if I end up moving back down there too. We may still be 350 miles apart from each other, but it's much better than 700 miles! :)

OFF TOPIC!! (Sorry about this!)

Hi Lynne! Micky is from my Dad's side of the family. Dad comes from a family of seven children, a CATHOLIC family of seven children. So, I have 39 cousins on Dad's side. Out of those 39, Micky is the second oldest I think. I am one of the youngest, so by the time I was roughly 10 or 12 years old, Micky was already off and married. She and her husband lived in Cincinnati for a few years and then moved to Florida. I haven't seen her in years, and I probably wouldn't recognize her now if I passed her on the street. But I know she lives there. Her Mom, my Aunt Peggy (Dad's sister), passed away from breast cancer in 1979 and my Uncle Ray really doesn't stay in touch with our side of the family, but he goes down to Florida to see her several times each year. As far as I know she's doing fine down there. :)

What's a marmite sandwich? I've never heard of it before. ???

I'll try to look it up. :)

Wikipedia said it is salty and savory, comparible to soy sauce. If it's salty I'd probably like it. :)

Do you eat it plain on a piece of bread? Or put it on something, like a hotdog?

David, I had Marmite in Texas......it's a spread to put on bread or crackers.

I wasn't a fan.  If given to me, I could eat it, however, I'd rather it not be put in front of me.

Marmite is the British equivalent of the Australian Vegemite. It is also popular in New Zealand. Both Marmite and Vegemite are yeast extracts, rich in B group vitamins. They present as a thick, black, viscous paste and are usually spread on toast, bread, crackers, but can also be used as a flavour enhancer in some recipes; e.g., stews.  Marmite is slightly lighter/sweeter than Vegemite. :D

Sounds yummy, Jess!  I miss my Daddy's milk gravy.  Maybe I will get him to make it over the holidays.

Last night was chilled shrimp with homemade cocktail sauce and mini-quiches (the Nancy's frozen kind).

Then a few hours later we ordered pizza (sausage, pepperoni, mushroom).

This morning is Diet Sundrop!

You had to make vodka and orange juice for the school? What kind of school is this?

Today, I had a breakfast burrito for breakfast.

Saturday was an interesting day. I went on a 17-mile hike. Here's what I ate: Breakfast: 6 oz of grits with a pat of butter, 12 oz. coffee. Lunch: 1/2 peanut butter and apricot jam sandwich, 1/2 banana, 12 oz water. Dinner: some almonds and prunes. Water.

Sunday I didn't eat much until the evening, when I had a 12-oz steak, mashed potatoes, broccoli, and mushrooms. However, I was only able to eat 2 bites of the steak, so I'll be eating the rest for lunch today.


OMG I have just read my post and it does sound like I was making the vodka for school. It has been a tough few days and I got my knickers in a twist and my words in an even bigger one.

It was the walnut cookies I made extra of.

I just had visions of the principal arriving at my house with a whole sherrif's posse and me on Fox news !!!!

the liquid..  The canned milk is the secret....

breakfast was a bagel,  Bob got egg with cheese on a bagel to take to work

lunch was soup for me.  He got a chef salad at the work deli.

dinner was homemade romano and parmesian white sauce with sauteed garlic, fresh muschroom slices and shrimp over a bed of linguini.  garlic sticks

Im glad I ate mine before Bob got home because I used WAY too much garllic.  I picked it out of mine as i ate.  Good thing I left them in chunks or maybe thats where I went wrong?!  After I ate I picked out the garlilc in the white sauce remaining in the pain before Bob got home.  That was a good save.

We all used to eat at the same time at the dining room table. thats how I grew up in a family of seven.   Here.  when we both were working, it was always Bob, me, Ashley and the usual friend of hers who joined us.  Since Ashley left we slowly stopped eating at the tabel and now we tend to eat at different times.  I still cook most every night though.  :).

Breakfast - Two slices of toast with butter, sugar and cinnamon and half of an orange. Glass of milk.

Lunch - Fried Spam on a bun with lettuce, tomato and mayonniase. Pickle. Glass of ice tea.

Snack - A vanilla ice cream cone! Cody and I shared it. He takes a lick and then I take one! :)

Dinner - Seafood Salad again. Dad wanted me to cook it for him before I went back home for the weekend. Here's a pic -

My late night snack will probably be a bowl of popcorn. I bought a new bag of popcorn, Indiana grown. The best!! ;)  I have a few friends coming over and we will munch on popcorn, play some cards and probably watch a good movie. We're thinking about watching Titanic tonight (1997 Leo DiCaprio version)

I didn't have any peas this time, so I added some chopped yellow and green pepper instead. And a little onion. :)

The pepper was really good in there. I'll probably continue to add it to the recipe from now on. No, I'm not scrimpy with the seafood. Those white chunks you see in there is the crab. And I always pullt the tails off the shrimp before I add them in. Nobody should have to dig through their meal to pull shrimp tails off! :P

Breakfast - Two slices hot buttered toast, one with Vegemite topping and the other with apricot conserve. Pot of Twining's Irish Breakfast tea.

Lunch - I will shortly be logging off to prepare Saturday lunch. I hear a ham sandwich on wholegrain bread calling my name; with lashings of hot, hot, hot English mustard. Haven't decided on what the tea will be - probably a pot of Twining's Orange Pekoe.

Dinner - For dinner this evening I'm leaning towards a steak with garlic butter, fresh tossed garden salad in vinaigrette dressing and chips (think French fries, but thicker!). With a couple  of glasses of Merlot.  :D

Did anyone have a banana yet to-day ? Oui ? Non ? Pas encore ?

I missed having my banana this morning with my oatmeal which I have daily ! A good habit that my past lover (Wayne, deceased) had, and which  I started because I did so with him every breakfast the uncountable mornings I was there in his/our home!

To-day, I did not have a banana to eat and must purchase some to-day !

The following is not what a Vietnaman lady used to make me... later on that if you like.
This one is just found which is an invention in the USA:

      Bananas Foster is a dessert made from bananas and vanilla ice cream, with the sauce made from butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, dark rum, and banana liqueur. The butter, sugar and bananas are cooked, and then the alcohol is added and ignited. The bananas and sauce are then served over the ice cream. Preparation of the dish is often made into a tableside performance as a flambé.

The dish was created in 1951 by Paul Blangé at Brennan's Restaurant in New Orleans, Louisiana. It was named for Richard Foster, a friend of Owen Brennan's and New Orleans Crime Commission chairman. It is still served at a number of fine restaurants in New Orleans and other fine restaurants around the world.

                   


Did anyone have it? Done it ? Made it?

Au revoir, bon appétit,
hugs!

I was going to make my big flake oatmeal for breafast
and add fresh raspberries to it,
but mother said that she wanted to do some crepes !

She did!

And we had pancakes with maple syrup !

So delicious!

Anyone else like MAPLE SYROP ?

..........

           
   Maple Tips and Ideas

While maple syrup is delicious by itself, its flavor enhances the taste of many other foods. In addition to waffles and pancakes, try it on ice cream or drizzle it on a bowl of mixed fruits. In addition to these recipes, maple syrup can be substituted for sugar in many recipes. The following formula for this substitution is taken from "Make It With Maple", Extension Bulletin E-1181 published by the Cooperative Extension Service at Michigan State University.
“When substituting, use 1-1/2 cups of pure maple syrup for each cup of granulated sugar and add 1/4 teaspoon baking soda for each cup of maple syrup used. When maple syrup is substituted for all sugar in a recipe, reduce the amount of liquid used by one half, If maple syrup is substituted for half the sugar, reduce liquid amounts by one-fourth.”

Baked goods made with maple syrup should be baked at 250 degrees F lower temperature than same recipe using granulated sugar.

Try these ideas...

Carrots glazed with maple syrup, butter and a pinch of dry mustard.

Acorn squash baked with 2 tablespoons maple syrup, salt and pepper in each cavity.

To make Maple Cotton Candy, mix 1/3 pure granulated maple sugar to 2/3 white cane sugar and proceed as normal with a cotton candy machine.

Blend a small amount of maple syrup with commercial marshmallow cream for a delicious sundae sauce.

Warm maple syrup with rum added to taste, makes a superb sauce for vanilla ice cream.

So, with that in mind, I fix the following meals today:

Breakfast: Biscuits and gravy - spicy pork gravy over warm homemade biscuits, a glass of orange juice and a cup of hot tea.

Lunch: Tuna fish sandwich with lettuce, tomato and mayonnaise. Side of potato chips. Glass of milk. (Tuna fish is the ONLY fish I like, although I'm fond of other seafoods such as crab, lobster, shrimp and scallops)

Dinner: I'm at Dad's house today, so I'm planning to make Lemon Chicken Piccata - Sauteed chicken breasts with a white wine-lemon butter sauce, capers and mushrooms. Tossed salad.

Breakfast - I don't think I had any.
Lunch - a pastiche of leftovers.  A little corn chowder my mom made, some "soycatash" (succotash made with edamame instead of lima beans, from Trader Joe's), some mac and cheese, some rye melba toast with Bavarian Blue cheese, more pears, and a big green salad.
Dinner - Soup with cabbage, carrots, celery, mix of beans, rice, canned diced tomatoes, veggie bouillon cube made in the crockpot.  Rye bread made in the bread machine.
Later - Another bowl of soup and another slice of bread.

Chicken is a wonderful comfort food, especially in the winter. It helps keep you warm against the cold outside.

I had a pizza for dinner tonight. A frozen one. But I dressed it up with all kinds of goodies and it was pretty good. :)

David, I had Lemon Chicken Piccata last night!  I love the combination of lemon and capers, and I served it over mini penne pasta. 

Breakfast this morning - there was a sale on Dannon Yogurt this week, and I noticed they had a coffee yogurt, which I'd never tried before.  Since I like yogurt and I love coffee, I thought this would be a good thing.  I was wrong. LOL.  It wasn't inedible, but the tang of the yogurt and the coffee flavor wasn't a good combo, imo.

Hi David

Champers is slang for champagne and plum duff :

Traditionally steamed in  muslin cloth, the rich, dark and full-of-fruit pudding was boiled for quite some time then left to hang in the safe until the big day ie Christmas Day. Its kind of like a bolied Christmas cake. We usually only have it on Christmas Day. No idea why its called plum duff because there aren't any plums in it.


Hey the Thai Mango Shrimp sound fantastic. Bet ya had nothing left over!!

Thanks for explaining that Matt. I'd never heard of it before! Is Christmas cake the same as Christmas pudding? I've had Christmas pudding before. I liked it! But I was under the impression it was pudding and it wasn't. It was like a cake. Most Americans have heard of Christmas pudding but they really don't know what it is.

I didn't make anything special today. I had a tossed salad with grilled chicken strips for dinner. It was pretty good. Tomorrow I am frying 5 chickens for my Halloween party. I do it every year. It's one of those New Year's traditions. I will be making some crispy and some extra crispy chicken. I'm going to place the chicken in baskets so people can grab a piece whenever they feel like it. There will be some chips and dip and other goodies available too. :)

The Baja fish tacos at BCB are so good. I am not sure what kind of fish--it's mild and it's crunchy on the outside. Probably cod. There is a white sauce and some pico like veggies on it--in a soft tortilla.

No. We don't have Rubio's around here. What are theirs like? The only fish tacos I've had (on your recommendation) are the ones at Blue Coast Burrito which I love and crave now -- and some from our local authentic Mexican restaurant. Those I don't like too well. They are totally different. The BCB ones have chunks of crunchy fish and a white sauce. The AM ones have crumbled fish (not crunchy) with a hot reddish - brown sauce.

Well, I made Amish friendship bread last night. Can't tell you if it tastes like chicken, because I haven't tried it yet. But it's called friendship bread because each time you make it, four cups of "starter" are produced that you share with others. I'm looking forward to sharing my starter with coworkers and Brokie friends here in Denver.

Matt, what is chorizo dessert? I'm pretty open-minded when it comes to food, but this idea blows my mind!

Well, I made Amish friendship bread last night. Can't tell you if it tastes like chicken, because I haven't tried it yet. But it's called friendship bread because each time you make it, four cups of "starter" are produced that you share with others. I'm looking forward to sharing my starter with coworkers and Brokie friends here in Denver.

Matt, what is chorizo dessert? I'm pretty open-minded when it comes to food, but this idea blows my mind!

That sounds really nice, Lee.  Wish I were a Denver Brokie at times like this...would you be willing to share the original recipe around here somewhere?

And Matt, I too am curious about chorizo dessert?!

(Oh, yeah, and David - monkey bread?!??!)

You all have never heard of monkey bread before?!!


(http://i135.photobucket.com/albums/q143/dukieman22/monkeybread.jpg)


It's sticky bread coated with brown sugar and cinnamon. You pull it apart to eat it. I make it with Pillsbury biscuits. Here's a recipe....


Monkey Bread
Ingredients:

4 cans refrigerated biscuits
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 1/2 sticks butter (3/4 cup)
1/2 cup white sugar
2 tablespoons cinnamon
1/2 cup raisins (these are optional, it's great with or without them)
 

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and grease a 9-10 inch tube pan.

2. Mix white sugar and cinnamon in a medium sized plastic bag. Cut the biscuits into halves or quarters and place six to eight biscuit pieces in the sugar cinnamon mix. Shake well.

3. Arrange pieces in the bottom of the greased pan. Continue layering until all the biscuit pieces are coated and in the pan. If you are using raisins, place them among the biscuit pieces as you are layering.

4. In a small saucepan, melt the butter with the brown sugar over medium heat. Boil for 1 minute. Pour over the layered biscuits.

5. Bake for 35 minutes. Let bread cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a plate. Pull apart and enjoy!


Eek eek!!

No, it's a direct way of telling you that I'm having macaroni and cheese and a fried bologna sandwich for dinner. And bologna doesn't just come from Bologna.  :)

Where did the Scottish come from?  ???

"Mac" and cheese, hehe...

I'm concocting a pork and hominy stew for breakfast, which I'll be wrapping in a tortilla. I had a tall mocha for dinner last nite, which is why I'm having a robust breakfast. Dinner will be lasagna and steak; hopefully I will get a smalll crowd of Brokies to eat it with me!

I got a weird idea stuck in my head last night and I decided to make it for lunch today.  :laugh:

I took two slices of bread and lightly toasted them. Then I slathered a bunch of tomato sauce on top, placed them on a greased oven tray and baked them for about 6 minutes at 325 F. Then I put some lettuce on each slice along with a few blobs of sour cream and put them back in the oven for another couple of minutes. It was REALLY good! The next time I make it I may try it with a little bit of browned ground beef. Yummy! :D

Now I just have to figure out what I'm going to name it! :laugh:

Salad for lunch.

A bowl of Fruity Pebbles with milk for breakfast.

But it really didn't look like a pizza! Maybe that's because it was square instead of round. :-\

It looked like a salad on bread that was baked in the oven. Sort of. Maybe when I put some ground beef on there I'll call it a pizza! :D

I inherited my mother's penchant for left over bolognaise on toast. I guess that is sort of similar.Ground meat with a tomato based sauce. I just toast the bread, butter it and put the bolognaise on top. Also do it with left over shepherds pie, meat. My husband thinks it is gross but I love it.

Since there was no power in my house when I woke up today, I had to do without coffee, which was okay, since I drink decaf. I had a bowl of cereal with  milk and was feeling rather deprived. Then, we decided to try cooking on the Jotul, which is a Swedish woodstove. We made some delicious ham and eggs and even toasted some English muffins!! Plus plenty of tea, and my husband managed to get his Vesuvius espresso maker to work!!

We have one flashlight that can be used as a hanging lantern, and several other flashlights and of course, candles. Then there's the light of the Jotul and the moon...but mostly we just go to bed early and get up when the power comes back on or the sun comes up, whichever happens first.

Breakfast: grape fruit and a slice of toast with butter, cinnamon and sugar

Lunch: hot dog and a bowl of mixed vegetables.

I should have posted yesterday (Friday) that supper was my favorite Friday supper: chili, on a bed of brown rice, with a little grated cheese on top, and a salad, and bread and butter.

This is significant because I gave up chili as part of my Lenten discipline.  :D

New research indicates it might be a good idea to eat protein for breakfast. It seems that carbs such as cereal and oatmeal don't give us that "I'm satisfied" feeling, the opposite happens in fact, and some people are in danger of gorging on carbs the rest of the day...

But I don't want to eat an egg either. I had an omelet for dinner last nite. I think I'll have some leftover pot roast!!

I STILL have some left over pot roast in the refrigerator! I cooked it down some more yesterday and now after another night in the refrigerator the roast is very tender. I'll probably have a pot roast sandwich for lunch. They are kind of messy, but man are they good!

And David, here's a sandwich I like to make for my friend Chuck when he's busy working: roast beef, lettuce, bread, and MAN-aise. He loves it!! It's a bit too austere for me. I like to add tomato and mustard.

I couldn't decide what to eat for breakfast and debated about it until lunchtime! I finally ate fish with a spicy sauce (mushrooms, salsa, olives, corn), broccoli, and rice. Yum, that was nice!! Now I'm ready to sally forth and conquer the world.

Maybe it will somehow sort itself out and I'll end up even? You think? :D

I love salty foods. I always have. Can't help it. :)

I love salty food too, and it ain't good for me. I'm not a fan of sweet things/chocolate, so I suppose I gotta have a vice re. food. I love to make Chinese food, and while on the surface it seems healthy, there is so much sodium in it, it is down right scary.

I try to avoid food with too much salt (sez the person who just had McDonalds) but sweets/chocolate are one of my biggest downfalls and you can't drink water to dilute the effects of that... :P

Yesterday, I had coffee for breakfast and home made chips (crisps in England) with lots of salt for lunch. I am a salt addict and the home made chips straight out of the oil, all warm and crispy with salt, yummy !! Dinner pulled pork on a tortilla with lettuce and sour cream, double yummy. It took all day to make the pulled pork but me and the kids love it.
Oh and a small Vodka with diet coke.
Today, breakfast a cup of coffee, lunch will skip after yesterdays food fest and dinner, who knows !!!! I suspect another very small vodka will feature somewhere.
Kids will have chicken fried rice for dinner with lots of ginger and garlic, peas and cauliflower. It tastes better than it sounds.The cauliflower is stir fried so is still crunchy. I have some strawberries left and some heavy cream so I guess I will knock up a quick strawberry fool for their pudding.Quick, easy and pretty tasty too.

I've been eating some really odd things lately. I think it's because of the cold weather. Yesterday for breakfast my daughter made me some scrambled eggs (the eggs were from our own chickens) with vegetables such as sweet peppers, mushrooms, etc. A typical breakfast but odd for me since I don't hardly ever eat a typical breakfast. Then I had a late lunch of a sandwich on whole wheat bread with remoulade sauce instead of mayo, sliced avocado, red onion, and two strips of anchovy, with some cottage cheese on the side. I had to go out in the snow later on to go to a rock climbing class at 7 pm, and I think the sandwich helped me be more alert. Don't worry, I brushed my teeth before I went out! Didn't get home until after 9 pm, when I had a supper of pot roast and sauteed beets, along with a glass of my daughter's mead.

Today, I had a typical breakfast again, this time plain yogurt with banana slices and raspberries, with Grape Nuts sprinkled over the top. Then, for lunch I ate black eyed peas (with veggies and ham), beet greens, rice, half a chicken liver, and some chopped olives. I wonder what dinner will be?  :P

I hope you turned the mixer off first!  :o

I had to switch lunch and dinner today. Today was one of those days I dread from a diet perspective, a day we have to go out to lunch to celebrate a teammate's birthday. Worse luck for me, I'm stuck with a bunch of vegetarians who love Asian food.  :-\ 

I was sitting next to my supervisor, and the wasabi they served with whatever it was she was having smelled so strong I was afraid for a minute or two that I was going to be sick or wouldn't be able to eat my own meal. At least I think it was the wasabi.  :-\

I had a Kobe beef burger with some weird little slivery french fries, so for dinner this evening I just had the salad that I ordinarily carry to work with me for lunch. The burger was good.

Today, as usual, my breakfast came from Starbucks.  There's a Starbucks across the street from work and I pass it on my walk to work everyday.  So, it's very, very easy to use that as the breakfast place instead of having breakfast at home.  I'm not much of a morning person.  Even if I go to bed with the intentions of making breakfast at home the next morning... that plan almost always is abandoned to hitting the snooze button a few more times when the actual morning comes.

So, anyway... I had my normal tall bold coffee with whole milk and I had a slice of their banana chocolate chip coffeecake (which says is "reduced fat" on the little sign). 

I don't yet know about lunch.

But, for dinner today I'll have homemade pureed carrot soup with orange and tarragon.  I made it last night and now have leftovers.

Post by: Front-Ranger on January 08, 2010, 11:46:56 am
I also had a major love of Starbucks until just recently. I'm trying to wean myself off it. They have expanded their breakfast menu in some of their stores and have added drive-thrus, etc. so it's almost like a McDonalds! Last time I dropped by there I ordered a Gingerbread Latte but they were out of the bits of crystallized ginger, so I ended up not getting anything.

I must stress once again that if something is advertised as low-fat or low-sugar, that does NOT mean low calories. I looked up the calories in your breakfast friend. Do you want to know what it is??

Today for breakfast I had a slice of (homemade) pumpkin bread and coffee. Lunch will probably be leftover chicken and rice soup that I made last night.  Tonight I'm grilling pork chops and deeer sausage with rice and collard greens for the side dishes.

Well, I'm not really too worried about the calories.  I realize it's not health food, which is why I put "reduced fat" in quotation marks.  Honestly, it's not going to stop me from going to Starbucks regularly.

My normal routine is to just have coffee for breakfast (which I also realize is not the most healthy thing).  Today I was hungry so I got the coffeecake (I get a coffeecake or something maybe twice a week for breakfast).

I made pot roast for dinner. I'd been slow cooking it all day. It had all the typical goodies in it - chunks of beef, carrots, onions, potatoes, celery...

I cheated and used a pot roast mix for the gravy, but I ended up reducing the amount of water I normally add to it. In fact I threw a little bit of flour in it. It was nice and thick and hearty! I poured mine over a couple slices of bread.

If, after a night in the refrigerator it is thick enough, I'll probably make a pot roast sandwich for lunch tomorrow!

Your pot roast sounded good too! I love pot roast. I love putting big chunks of potatoes in it. It tastes wonderful when it is really cold outside.

I didn't have dinner tonight. I filled up on peanut butter earlier this afternoon. I started scooping it out of the jar with a spoon and before I knew it half the jar was gone! :o :P

I cooked Dad a catfish though. And he had a side of mixed vegetables, some apple sauce and a very small salad. So at least HE ate properly today! lol

Often in my life I have been in great danger of doing exactly the same thing!

Last night I "accidentally" had chili for supper. I was planning to have beans and rice, with a salad and a slice of whole-wheat bread, but I wasn't watching what I was doing, and I grabbed the can of chili from the cupboard instead of the can of B&M Baked Beans; the cans are the same size and similar in design. I didn't realize what I'd done until I dumped the chili into a saucepan and suddenly wondered, "Why is there meat in the baked beans?"  ;D

My b-fast yesterday was a bowl of warm grits with an egg (over easy) on top. ...

I still eat this occasionally for breakfast. Today, I looked at the carton to find out if the grits were whole grain. They are yellow grits, which means they are made from the whole corn kernal. Yay! White grits are made from hulled corn. But wait! The grits are actually made from hominy. What is hominy? Is it some way of removing the nutritive value of corn? Turns out that hominy is corn that is treated with a lye solution, thanks to Wikipedia. I assume the lye removes the vitamins and minerals. But no! Turns out that treating with lye actually improves the niacin (and possibly other B vitamins) absorbability, "improves the availability of the amino acids, and (at least in the lime-treated variant) supplements the calcium content, balancing maize's comparative excess of phosphorus." Yay! Hominy is a Powhatan word and is of Native American origin. So, let's eat hominy!! And grits!!! Oh, did you know that Grits is also a Canadian political party? That's a whole different subject!

leaving now to have lunch at a club with friend, probably caesar salad, iced tea

supper will be my special red wine spaghetti sauce, pasta, homemade bread, zucchini casarole,  and part of a Braum's icecream cake.

reception tonight, so I willl probably grab some cheese crackers, and dip and maybe a highball (only one), Dusty will guzzle a few beers in boredom.

    I am very proud of you and all the people that have joined the project to try and give a
good boost and self esteem for the kids that are having issues in school or whereever else that
they are running into other kids that give them a hard time or bad self immage because of the
sexual identity that they have gotten in the teen age or the intermediate age level.    They
just need to know the choices that they have made are not truly a choice.  It is the same as
if you said you chose to have been born in a certain month, or with dark hair, or anything that
you actually dont choose.  You cant choose the sexual orientation, any more than you can choose your parents.  That is just a ridiculous idea.  It is all a very ignorant thought.  People are so stupid that make those kinds of ideas.  Being gay is just a way you are born.  You cant have a choice in it.  People used to have that idea and didnt know better, but there has been plenty of research done now days that there is no reason for people to have those ideas, and
talk about it as if it is a fact.  When they go to the extent of picking on kids, or acting out in
mean and spiteful ways, to the degree that they commit suicide because they are so unhappy.  Then there is time for something to be done about that kind of behavior.
   I am proud and happy by all the people that are now acting in a way of encouragement toward these unhappy children.  I happen to know the pain and horror of having a family member do that.  Suicide is exactly what its called.  "A permanent solution, to a temporary problem."  Thanks to you and all the rest of the people that are throwing their support behind all the people who are having this problem.  Good on ya.  Janice

Here was my Irish breakfast today!! Fortified me for a long spell of blogging...

(http://www.divshare.com/img/14251857-ef3.jpg)

Clockwise from left: 1 egg sunnyside up, slice of ham, whole wheat toast with olive oil drizzle, broiled tomatoes. Center: sauteed broccoli. (I wanted to add a potato, but couldn't afford the calories.)

It's very unusual for me to eat all that for breakfast. I usually alternate between an egg on a slice of whole wheat bread and a piece of fruit or a little granola/cereal/oatmeal with milk or yogurt, sprinkled with berries and bananas or other fruit. Those are my two standard breakfasts. My standard lunch is either a salad or a few bites of some kind of meat or fish along with some vegetables, two or three different kinds. I try to skip dinner a couple of nights a week but usually eat a couple ounces of meat or fish with more vegetables and some carbs such as potatoes or rice. If I eat dessert, it's usually in the mid-afternoon. I take a gelato or chocolate break like the Italians do. Also, I try to eat Asian food several times a week because it is healthy and low calorie.

I'm looking to make my diet more healthy and cut out some more calories so I can lose those last couple of pounds. Any ideas?

Well, my dinner this evening was remarkably similar to your breakfast. I had one egg sunny-side up, one slice of whole-wheat toast, two turkey sausage patties, two squares of cheese, a tossed salad, and a small cup of diced peaches for dessert. And a big glass of water to drink.

What's for breakfast:


I'm a breakfast cereal junkie, and have been as far back as I can remember.  My mom was one of those people who can't stand to eat in the morning; I've never seen her consume anything but coffee before lunchtime.  But when she had a husband and three kids who did eat breakfast, she had to do something.  Her M.O. was to have plenty of milk and at least three different kinds of cereal in the house at all times, and she'd make toast to go with it. Worked for me, and it's still one of my favorite convenience foods.

I generally have cereal for breakfast.  Once in awhile I'll have breakfast out and do the bacon-and-egg thing, and on those days it's usually cereal for lunch.  Ready-to-eat cereals are supposed to be expensive, but if you like a wide variety it isn't hard to minimize that since on any given week some of them are on sale.  I rarely pay more than $3 a box and it's often less than that.

You would have loved the eatery we had here a few years ago on the U. of Penn campus, near where I work. It was all breakfast cereal and nothing but breakfast cereal, 24/7. You could mix and match whatever you wanted.  ;D It only lasted a few years. Now it's a Verizon store.  :-\

You can keep the catfish, but the stir fry sounds good.  :D And I love rice just about any way you can fix it.  :D

ummmm I haven't cooked rice for you yet eh? actually I am not that bad when it comes to the kitchen, well no botulism (sp) just yet LO but U loathe getting the frypan out. Anyway last week I resolved to improve my diet of spaghetti and eggs, quite a bit of junk food. So I have embarked on the healthier diet. My brother loaned me a booked called the Desitute Gourmet. Good food, easy to follow (thats a plus), pictures (so I know what it should look like lol) and cheap to cook - Yay.  Over here they have a saying 5 Plus a day that is to say the minimum serves of friut and veges. So thats my objective.

So breakfast was yoghurt and cornflakes
    lunch   was poached egg on toast
    dinner (wait for it I cooked and it was edible in fact really nice) I had goulash with lots of potato and veges
    dessert  pears in juice
    supper  toast with marmite (well I am a kiwi) and another slice  with raspberry jam
               finished off with a Californian Orange

You're right, I would have loved that!   ;D  Never heard of an all-cereal-all-the-time eatery before.  If there'd been one at U of GA, I would have given it a lot of business; unfortunately, Dunkin' Donuts was where I headed when I was doing an all-nighter.  Not nearly as healthy.

Dinner tonight is turkey meat loaf.  I've only done it once or twice before.  Luckily, I have a nearby store that has fresh, ground organic turkey.  Tonight, I realized I didn't have an onion, so I looked around the kitchen to see what there was.  I sautéed a leek, a shallot, some mushrooms and thyme.  Added that to a little Worcestershire sauce, lotsa pepper, one egg, a dusting of breadcrumbs, and voilà. 

The mushrooms added a wonderful texture, and keeps the whole thing moist.  Yum!  Add a glass of a South African shiraz. 

Now, a salad with arugula and avocado, and a squeeze of lemon.

I'm one of those people who can't look at food before 10 am - although I have to have coffee.   I usually have only toast and coffee, or a bagel and coffee.   Lately tho I've been making oatmeal, drizzled with maple syrup, with whatever I have on hand - bananas, diced apples or pears, raisins or cranberries.   I also like to do the bacon-and-eggs or pancakes thing once in awhile, but later in the day - I like to have them for brunch or for dinner.   I love when you can get breakfast any time of day.  Those broiled tomatoes in Front-Ranger's pic looked great, and southendmd's turkey meatloaf, salad and Shiraz sounds great too!  :)   I kinda miss meatloaf since I don't eat red meat anymore, so I'll have to give that recipe a try - and see how it goes with red garlic mashed potatoes.  Yum!

Until recently I also never ate breakfast. But then I realized that the reason I wasn't hungry for breakfast was because I had eaten too much the evening before. I decided I would rather eat breakfast than have a big dinner and all the things that come after dinner. Now my goal is to wake up pleasantly hungry in the morning.

I'm glad you like the idea of a broiled tomato in the morning, Marina! It's a very good idea to have tomato or some other fruit (tomatoes are actually a fruit rather than a vegetable) whenever you eat meat or protein. The vitamins in the fruit help you to fully metabolize the protein. If you want to get the most from your meat, eat the fruit or whatever garnish is served along with it!

Breakfast today was a nice hot bowl of oatmeal, accompanied by a cup of coffee (with Equal and powdered nondairy creamer), and a banana.

Probably too many carbs, but still a good way to start the day.

I like oatmeal for breakfast too. The only problem is that a half hour later, I'm hungry again. So, I solve the problem by crushing a handful of walnuts into the oatmeal, adding some chopped dates while I'm cooking it, generously topping it with 2% milk and/or yogurt, and slicing a half banana, chopped apples, and/or a selection of berries into it. Then, I'm able to power through my morning!

Jeff, have you considered replacing that nondairy creamer with a good milk or half-and-half? It's made out of soy oil and/or corn syrup, not doing you any good and, plus, it tastes vile, IMHO!! (Not saying that milk in the US always tastes that much better)

My daughter tells me that skim milk actually contributes to weight gain. I'm not sure how it works, but apparently farmers feed skim milk to hogs in order to fatten them up.

I doubt this is a concern unless the rest of your diet is the same as a hog's.

Breakfast today was one egg, fried hard in butter, with two turkey sausage patties, a banana, and coffee the same as yesterday/the same as usual.

Supper last night was Weight Watchers' potroast with a salad with vinaigrette dressing, a slice of whole wheat bread with margarine, and strawberries for dessert. Tonight supper will be tomato soup with a salad, a slice of whole wheat bread with margarine, and probably also strawberries again.

Yesterday I obtained some grits made by Bob's Red Mill. These grits are different from those I usually get in the grocery store, which are made from white hominy. They are white because the corn has been degermed--the nutritious core of the kernal has been removed. I'm looking forward to trying the deep yellow grits. They'll probably be more chewy, but more flavorful and way more nutritious!

It was a stellar lunch fer sure!  Yes, the Plaza has had various things in its below-ground space, but now it's a rather daunting maze of individual shops selling all sorts of foods and baked goods.  Like at Eataly, there are tables and counters here and there.  I just sat down at the burger counter and was relieved when a waitress took charge of me.  We should go there on your next visit, Paul.  There's an oyster bar, too.  ;D

At the Sherpa House, we began with a plate of momos (dumplings), and then had saag (creamed spinach) with cheese, cauliflower and potato curry and onion naan bread. And rice, which I didn't eat.

I know I've asked this before, but I've forgotten the answer. What's fig newtons?

It was Offline Chuck's birthday today and I took him to a place called Frank's Cafe. First time this year I have dined outside. I had a wonderful jerk chicken with coconut rice and a salad and he had salmon teriyaki. We both had sweet tea. Yummy.

I'm in SF for computer training and went to a Dim Sum place for lunch.  We actually got a table (the place was full of tourists and business people alike) and I had some of the best pork shu mei, rice with beef steamed in banana leaves, steamed pork buns and shrimp dumplings! I've never had better.  Young ladies rolled steam tables around filled with yummy dim sum and we chose what we wanted to eat. Everything looked so good!  We had to be careful not to choose too much -- the last time we ordered specials like crab and lobster and the bill came to $83.00 for 2 people!!  For something sweet we hiked up a trecherous hill in China Town for custard tarts.

Well, I can say what wasn't for breakfast this morning: whole wheat toast.

In this heat and humidity, I found that half a loaf of whole whear bread that I had in my kitchen had gone moldy.  >:(

I could have picked the moldy areas off the bread--I've done that in the past--but I just didn't feel like it. Fortunately, I also had some whole wheat bagels in the house, and they were fine.  A toasted whole wheat bagel with peanut butter, a banana, and coffee makes a fine breakfast.  :)

Jeff, you're such a traditionalist, meat-potato-veg-diced-pears kind of guy! 

You're missing out.  Fresh figs are in season right now and they're wonderful.  Classic pairing with prosciutto, or in a tart with other fruits and almonds, perhaps. 

Earlier this summer, I did homemade pizza on the grill with sliced fresh figs, gorgonzola, arugula, and a drizzle of balsamic.  YUM!

Supper tonight, a two-egg and cheese omelet, and two turkey sausage patties.

On Friday when I did my weekly grocery shopping, I discovered this hinged, microwavable gizmo for making omelets in a microwave oven. I bought one and tried it out this evening. Works well, and easy to clean up.  :)

Well, I thought it did.

The trouble with using a frying pan is if you lack the skill to fold over the omelet without it breaking. If you don't have the skill, instead of having an omelet you just have a pile of fried egg and fillings.  ;D  These little pans take care of that for you. Half the egg goes in one side, and half goes in the other.  I have seen special omelet pans for use on the stove top that work essentially the same way, but I'm afraid that I disagree that any piece of stove-top cookware is as easy to clean up as a microwavable dish.

When my family visited London in 2004, the only reasonably priced place to have breakfast seemed to be those little taxicab stations that were in the middle of the street. Then we had a difficult time when my son wanted scrambled eggs. He finally ordered an omelette which is somewhat similar.

I think I'll have an Irish breakfast this morning: sausage, an egg, potatoes and a sliced grilled tomato. And a piece of toast. I have lots of tomatoes ripening all at once in my garden.

I'll cook it in a cast iron pan as always. I have a microwave, but I just use it for steaming vegetables and heating coffee.

I cook an omelet about once a month and manage to turn it over successfully about 90% of the time. Not sure I would like cooking it in the microwave, I like it brown. I use the microwave for scrambled eggs, also about once per month. Being a creature of habit, I have eggs every sunday night. The other choice is fried also in the pan, very occasionally boiled. With scrambled and omelte I add chopped ham, cheese, parsley, tarragon, chives and ground pepper. Fried is just with ham and pepper and boiled usually when I am out of other things or very lazy. I almost never use salt in cooking as I have high blood pressure.

I'm not a fan of cooking in the microwave, but it does have benefits, mainly an easier clean up.

Case in point, I just reheated some leftover meatballs and sauce.  Instead of putting it in the microwave, I heated in on the stovetop.  In the microwave I would've wrapped the dish in paper towels, and no splatter.  I just need to clean the dish.  On the stovetop, I now have tomato sauce spatters to clean up, plus the pot, and the dish.

They're mostly unknown in Germany, but I learned to love them ages ago on my first England trip. And ever since the movie "Fried Green Tomatoes" I'd like to try that. :)

Don't I know about it. But I haven't grown any tomatoes in the last couple of years. Don't know why, really. Maybe next year again.

Supper tonight included my own homemade mashed potatoes. And I realized that I prefer my own homemade mashed potatoes to any restaurant mashed potatoes I've ever had. I make no claims for my mashed potatoes; I'm not bragging on them, claiming I make the best, or whatever. I'm just saying that I prefer my own to anybody else's--except my dad's, and he taught me to make them. That was always his job, for some reason, to mash the potatoes.

Supper also reminded me why I hate to cook: Because I have to clean up afterward!  :P

Gasp! What ever shall we do??  ???

I am much happier with my diet since I started living on my own. I typically have whole grain cereal with berries, fruit, and/or bananas in 2% milk for breakfast, or I have one egg and a piece of toast with olive oil and herbs and spices. For lunch, I typically eat cooked vegetables, bits of leftover meat, and maybe some grains or some cottage cheese. For dinner, I almost always have soup. But last night I ate 3 crackers with cheese, smoked salmon and capers. With this diet, I need have no fear of overeating or gaining weight.

When I was in Nepal, I got in the habit of eating soup in the evenings. Now I am so used to it, anything else tends to upset my stomach.

I shudder to think what my weight will be tomorrow morning, but for supper this evening, I did something I have not done for years--and I do mean years: I went to McDonald's for a Quarter Pounder with Cheese, fries, and a strawberry milkshake. (Since I bought a meal, they threw in an apple pie; I've never had a McDonald's applie pie, and it wasn't bad).

So anyway, now that I've got that craving out of my system, I guess I'm good for another ten years or so.  :laugh:

Little side-story from Monika's and my recent WY/NE/SD/CO trip: all Holiday Inn Express hotels had pancake-plotters! :laugh:
I had seen the waffle-makers before, but pancake plotters were NTM. You push the button and the batter gets released on a kind of hot conveyor belt inside the machine. At the end are two drums/cylinders through which the pancakes are pressed and finally fall right onto your plate.

Another culinary novelty for me: pulled pork/chicken/beef. For really lazy people - and I liked it. ;D

Well, Chuck said "just a sandwich and a few chips" so it seemed like he felt there was something wanting in it. I am of the old-fashioned disposition that it's better to have a nice hot meal for supper, especially during the winter. That said, I ate a sandwich for dinner last night! It was a Bahn-Mi sandwich and contained pork, pickled ginger, cucumbers, sprouts and lots of other things. I felt strange afterwards because there was more bread than I really wanted. I should have eaten it open-faced and given the rest of the bread to the birds.

Oh, OK.

I agree with you about a hot supper--or dinner, whichever you prefer to call it--unless for some reason I've had an atypically large lunch, such as when we go out to lunch as a team at work. Then I frequently eat for supper what I ordinarily have for lunch, in an attempt to balance the amount of food I take in for that day.

My Thanksgiving leftovers dinner was a bit larger than it need have been.  :P

Last night, to prepare supper, I tried out the little pseudo-George Foreman grill that I got for reward points at work. I like the little grill--easy to use, cooks quick, and easy to clean up.

I'm less pleased with what I cooked on it. At the same time that I got the grill, I had enough points for a dozen hamburgers from Omaha Steaks. The burger was OK, but the burgers seem to have more fat in them than I prefer in beef.

Anyway, I ate the burger as "chopped steak" rather than as a sandwich. Along with it I had mac and cheese and steamed mixed vegetables.

Tried something new this morning: I made myself a "grilled" cheese sandwich for breakfast.  ;D

I'd been thinking for some time about experimenting with this. I like cream cheese on whole-wheat toast as much as on a whole-wheat bagel, so I was thinking, Why not regular cheese?

I toasted the bread, put a slice of cheese between the slices of bread, and zapped it in the microwave to melt the cheese. If and when I do this again, I will use two slices of cheese instead of just one.

I also ate a hard-boiled egg and drank a cup of coffee.

Yep, you need two slices. One slice soaks into the toast so there's barely any cheese left to bite into.
Did the bread stay crispy in the microwave? For me it always gets soft and thus is only half the fun. Luckily I have a mini-oven on the counter, which takes up space and is another thing to clean, but we use it so often that it's worth it. The sandwich maker however is stored away in a cabinet and barely ever sees any daylight. Too much hassle, even though it makes even better crispy sandwiches than the mini-oven.

No reason you shouldn't have so-called breakfast food for supper if that's what you're in the mood for.

I had an egg and turkey sausage for breakfast this morning, a bowl of bean soup and a salad for supper.

Crockpot pasta carbonara. School has started back and already am barely keeping my head above water, so I foresee a lot of crockpot recipes in the near future.

Sweet!

Cook 1lb bacon (I do mine in the oven, so much easier!)
then

Throw all together in crockpot:
1/2-1lb noodles
1 can cream of mushroom soup
5oz mushrooms
cooked bacon
8oz frozen peas (or however much you like, omit if you don't like)
4 oz cream cheese
15oz can chicken broth
2T garlic powder or 2 minced garlic cloves

Stir just to distribute evenly. Cook in crockpot on high x 30min, then on low x 2-3 hours.
Terribly lazy cook here. :)

LOL, not that I'm aware of. She's not a big Jello eater....maybe it's because she's ELCA, not Missouri Synod.  :)

Yeah, I was raised in the old LCA, now the ELCA, and still on the rolls in the church I was raised in. Here I'm also on the rolls of the Episcopal parish that's right around the corner from my home. I'm living proof the Episcopalians will take anybody.  ;D

This evening I fasted--sort of--before going to Ash Wednesday service. I simply didn't have time to eat before the service, so I didn't. When I got home, I had a small bowl of chicken and rice soup, a salad, a slice of whole wheat bread, and a glass of water.

I'm going to try to revive my Lenten discipline of a few years ago of eating light for supper on Wednesdays.

Funny thing. I was hungry when I got home from work, but once I got to church, I wasn't hungry any more, until after the service.

Must be an evolutionary throwback. A lot of us seem to do this - I dunno, building up fat stores for a lean winter, I guess. Dunno about you, but any fat stores I build up will not go away easily....best not put them there to begin with.

All the same, I would love nothing more right now than a big hot bowl of homemade mac & ooey gooey cheese sprinkled with bacon.

We tried out a new Mexican joint for lunch. I had a nice filling plate of chicken, beans, and veggies for about $7. Supper is not yet on my radar.

I'm with you, Chuck. Tried coffee in all kinds of flavors and sugar/cream/milk combos and just never got into it. For AM caffeine, it's either green tea or soda (very bad, I know).

Supper tonight will be one of my favorite meals, chili over a nice bed of brown rice, a green salad, and a slice of whole-wheat bread. Not sure what I might do for a dessert.  :)

Supper tomorrow will be one of those meals I periodically make to use up leftovers: a grilled chicken breast (not a leftover), mashed potatoes and fat-free chicken gravy (leftovers), and steamed veggies (not leftovers). I'm not yet sure whether the veggies will be Brussels sprouts or a veggie mix. I will probably also have a slice of whole-wheat bread. I don't yet know about dessert.

I made some diabetic 3-minute cake today - if you want to know what 3 minute cake is and why it's good for diabetics I can post that somewhere... but suffice it to say that carbohydrates are NOT my friend!  and it was a gift by a woman I met in Australia who I guess assumed I was diabetic - she turned out to have been a prophetess because 3 years later I became diabetic!

But tonight's meal is lowfat potato salad and some homemade Tortilla soup  - I get soup mixes without sodium from Frontier Soups, they are freeze-dried veggies and herbs, expensive but very healthy.  Health is still delicate from the last bout of bronchitis but I'm bouncing back!

Brown is much healthier, and by itself I think much tastier. White rice by itself is too bland. However, if the meal is going to include some kind of sauce or gravy for on the rice, then I'll use white rice myself.

On the subject of rice, my favorite is Basmati. Unlike other rice, it does have a wonderful subtle flavor. Technically, I think it's considered to be a white rice though. I can't eat much brown rice at all, only a few bites. Any more gives me stomach cramps. I don't know why. I don't eat much rice, either white or brown. It was a favorite of my ex's. I tend to prefer noodles of all kinds. Right now I like rice noodles, cold, in a wrap with greens and veggies, flavored with sweet chili sauce. Come to think of it, rice noodles ARE rice, just in a different form!

Yay! Now that it's Rocky Ford cantaloupe season, I get to have a slice of melon with my breakfast! I'm pretty happy with my breakfast routine lately. I found a neighbor who has chickens so I get to have a yummy orange yolked egg for breakfast too, along with a hand-sliced piece of toast and decaf coffee with whole milk.

I don't know where Rocky Ford is, but I sure hope they don't get their irrigation water from the Animas River.  :(

No, Rocky Ford is in the Arkansas River Valley, its water comes from that river. Update on the Animas, the pollution is down in New Mexico now, on its way to Lake Powell. Surprisingly, the EPA has said that the water in the Animas now tests all clear of pollution!

I haven't heard anything today; I missed the network evening news today as I was grocery shopping. But NBC has followed the story quite closely. I understand your Governor Hickenlooper actually took a drink out of the Animas.

Over my desk at work I have a postcard whereon you can see a small portion of the Animas. The card shows a train of the Durango & Silverton on the High Line in the Animas Canyon below Silverton.

I'd like to go back there some day.

Yikes! That's the kind of meal I'd have for supper.

Tonight: Barbecued chicken, potato salad, corn on the cob, and ice cream for dessert.

I'm going to try making the corn the way my dad makes it, in the microwave oven, so I don't have a big pot to clean up after supper.

Lunch, such as it was, was just a couple of forkfuls to sample the potato salad I'm having for supper, and about a third of a tomato, with salt and pepper. (The whole tomato originally was about as large as half a cantaloupe.)

Breakfast was a whole-wheat bagel with peanut butter, and coffee.

Turned out great! Best corn on the cob I've had all summer! I wish I had asked my dad years ago how he did it!

It's very easy. Husk the corn, and make the corn wet. Wrap the corn in a paper towel, and then make the paper towel wet. Wrap it all in wax paper. Place it on a paper plate and microwave it on High for three minutes. That's all there is to it. (Use potholders to take it out of the microwave because it's HOT!)

I don't use paper plates in my home, so I just placed it on a paper towel in the microwave, and that worked just fine.

By the way, these instructions are for steaming one ear of corn at a time. I don't know how to adjust them to make more than one ear at a time.

New England melons are non-existent to not very good, and taste like cucumbers. 

I am sure that Lancaster cantaloupes are lovely, as are the Rocky Ford type (these I know). 

Our best melons come "from away", wherever that may be.

There are orange-flesh honeydew melons that I can get at a certain farm stand in Wellfeet on Cape Cod that are beyond gorgeous.  (Gotta check the label next time.)

The best melons I ever had are two:  one, whilst visiting friends in San Luis Obispo, CA, was served after dinner, and I was stopped in my tracks, it was soooooooooo good; and two, was the melon de Cavaillon that I bought in the south of France and broke over a rock to eat like a caveman.  Fantastique!

I made my own home-made breakfast sandwich this morning: Two slices of whole-wheat toast, one fried egg, one slice of turkey breast, one slice of cheese.

With the two slices of toast, it obviously wasn't very low-carb,  :(  but it was pretty good. It might have been improved if I had microwaved it a bit, to melt the cheese, or maybe buttered the bread, but it wasn't bad.

Tell you what, I've always eaten breakfast because "you're supposed to," "it's the most important meal of the day," etc., etc., and so forth, but quite often lately I've been waking up in the morning not feeling hungry at all, and I've begun to wonder, Why eat if I'm not hungry?

One answer I'm giving myself is that it's easier to eat healthy at home than it is to eat elsewhere, which I would be tempted to do if I waited until I was actually hungry.

Still, it's a bit of a puzzlement.  ???

I had that problem a year or so ago and figured out that I needed to eat/drink less in the evening so I'd wake up hungry for breakfast. Now, I usually have "supper" in the evening instead of dinner. Often a bowl of soup with a side of something or other.

I went to Walgreens and they had their Easter stuff out.  There was a Russel Stover whipped key lime egg, so I had to try it.

Not bad, but the citrus they used to flavor the marshmallow inside the egg apparently melted the  chocolate, so it was rather sticky.

I don't recall seeing that "Ham" packaging, but the "Pork Roll" is common in Southeastern Pennsylvania. I must try to remember to look for the "Ham" next time I go to the supermarket. I'm sure there must be a business reason for the two packagings.

Today brunch after church was a biscuit and gravy, with grits, and a cup of coffee. A new place has opened up near my place. It's called Scratch Biscuits, and they specialize in, well, biscuits! I'd been trying to find a time to try them.

What I had was good, especially the grits, but also a little odd. They seem to be trying to bill the place as "down home" food, and the decor is according, but the menu is actually a little, well, fancy. I've never heard of "biscuits and gravy" as being anything other than a biscuit with sausage gravy, but the gravy on my biscuit was a a sage gravy without a bit of meat in it. It was very tasty, but it wasn't what I was looking for or expecting. There didn't seem to be any plain old ham biscuit on the menu, and one of the combinations was named for Alice Waters.

Nevertheless, I will go again and recommend the place to my friends.

After I had the biscuit and gravy and grits, i went by the watering hole and had a Bloody Mary.  ::)

At the grocery store this afternoon I remembered to look for Taylor Ham. Nope, only Taylor Pork Roll. I would like to see what Taylor Ham looks like. I still suspect they are two different things produced by the same company, located in New Jersey. Taylor Pork Roll is like a large sausage. If Taylor Ham is like, well, slices of ham, then they aren't the same thing in different packaging.

They look like Boston Cream donuts, but they were labeled "Donnoli Donuts".  Instead of the traditional stuffing of cream or jelly,  they are stuffed with cannoli stuffing & chocolate chips.

Breakfast was my usual Thursday breakfast of one fried egg and a serving of turkey sausage.

On my way out of the subway before 9:00 this morning, I saw somebody with a pizza box. I don't know that I'd really care for a typical pizza at 9:00 in the morning, but suddenly I was craving a pizza made with scrambled eggs, sausage, and perhaps cheese. I mean, why not?

Then I got to the office and discovered that someone brought in a huge box of soft pretzels.  ;D

I think Taylor Pork Roll was a sponsor of one of the kid shows on a Philadelphia TV station that I watched as a small child, probably Sally Starr's "Popeye Theater."

Since I expect to spend today quietly alone, I've planned my own sort-of indoor Fourth of July picnic.

When I went to farmers' market on Friday, my go-to guy for tomatoes from my home county had the first sweet corn of the season, so I bought two ears of corn (75 cents an ear!  :o ). I also have baked lima beans, potato salad, and a couple of hot dogs (which I will eat without buns). And ice cream for dessert!  :D

This is what I found on Google.

Lunch is almost the midday equivalent of supper — it's also a lighter and less formal meal than Dinner, but is used specifically when referring to a midday meal. So whether you use lunch/dinner or dinner/supper is heavily determined by when your culture traditionally has its largest meal.


For me personally, I have always said breakfast, lunch, dinner,  but have considered dinner and supper as switchable.


breakfast today was a peanut butter and blackberry jelly sandwich.

For me personally, I have always said breakfast, lunch, dinner,  but have considered dinner and supper as switchable.

"Where I come from," or, really, where my parents come from, people often say, or said, "breakfast, dinner, and supper," because it was a largely agricultural area, and farmers, at least in the old days before a lot of mechanization, usually had their largest meal--dinner--at midday, because they had been doing hard work all morning and would be going back to do more of it after they ate. Lunch was something that came in with industrialization, when people working in factories had maybe only a half-hour break in the middle of the day to eat something quick and cold. The largest meal--dinner--became the meal that you ate at home in the evening.

So I've come to think of "breakfast, dinner, and supper" as a more rural and even old-fashioned usage, and "breakfast, lunch, and dinner" as more urban. I myself tend to use dinner and supper sort of interchangeably to refer to the evening meal.

First there was a leek and mushroom soup, with bread and your choice of butter or Brie (cheese) to spread on the bread. Then came stewed beef, served with "buttered worts" (carrots and parsnips), and boiled barley. There was also a sort-of quiche made with beets. I didn't stay for the dessert course, because I anticipated I might have trouble getting a cab home (I didn't have a problem, actually), but I noticed that the dessert menu included gingerbread.

The lima beans that I had were frozen, Green Giant brand. It's Katharine who can't find dried lima beans anymore. The supermarket where my dad shops still carries them.

Perhaps there just isn't much of a demand for them.

I wonder whether supermarkets in Minnesota carry premade lutefisk, or if that's something everyone has to make at home.

Breakfast this morning was my current Saturday morning guilty pleasure: a Jimmy Dean-brand sausage-egg-and-cheese-on-a-croissant sandwich.

I also had a pot of Arbuckle's coffee.

The coffee was sent to me by Friend OCD. Arbuckle's is an old, old brand that was a favorite of cowboys in the olden days. It's not a coffee for the faint of heart; it's very strong-tasting. The company continues its historic practice of packaging an old-fashioned peppermint stick in each pound package of the coffee. It is said that back in the day, when the coffee was sold only in bean form, the cowboys used to compete for the job of using the coffee grinder to grind the beans for the cook in order to get the peppermint stick.  ;D When ranchers bought supplies for cattle drives, they would buy hundreds of pounds of Arbuckle's coffee.  ;D

A very rare morning it was today, when coffee, egg, and toast all came out perfectly.

90 percent of the time, I have the same breakfast every day: one egg, over easy, cooked in a cast iron pan, toast, sliced from a loaf of take-and-bake sourdough, a piece of fruit, and two cups of decaf coffee with whole milk. Today it all came together perfectly so I will take it as an augur of the day that is to come (vigorously knocking on wood!).

I'm beginning to teach myself to be more careful about what I'm eating for breakfast, lunch, and supper. I've been a label reader for many years now, paying particular attention to fat and cholesterol, but I've learned through having this damn cold that's now been plaguing me for almost two weeks that my blood pressure is running high. I'm beginning to pay attention to sodium content in foods, along with watching the fat and cholesterol.

This is merely the beginning. I expect that at some point I will ask for a referral to a dietitian or some such specialist for advice; I'm thinking if I know I should have no more than "x" milligrams of salt in my diet a day, I can work with a number. Just being told to reduce the salt in my diet would not be particularly helpful to me.

Shredded wheat cereal has no sodium in it.  ;D

Incidentally, when I saw a doctor about my cold, I asked him if stress can contribute to hypertension, and he said yes. Then when I saw the nurse practitioner, she asked me if I was under a lot of stress, because stress can contribute to hypertension. So I guess stress can contribute to high blood pressure.  :laugh:

Illness can also raise blood pressure.

I have had high blood pressure for about 20 years and take 2 tablets every morning. It started when I was stressed at work and when I retired,  I told my doctor I could stop taking the tablets and she said "No way". I know it goes up if I am stressed. My last visit to the doctor was to have my test to renew my driver's licence at age 75 and it was up. It was also the week before I had my hernia op. It was up for the operation but no medical person seemed very worried. I do not use salt when cooking (except a pinch when boiling pasta) and never add it to my meals. I find pepper is just as good for adding taste.
I also take a tablet for high cholesterol before going to bed and always buy low fat milk. I use soy milk on my cereal. But my mother had high cholesterol and lived to 97.
Now I find I am pre-diabetic. I stopped putting sugar in my coffee (that was hard) and on my cereal. I have alwasys had a cereal which is low on salt and sugar. Weetbix are made by the 7th Day Adventist church and are the most popular cereal in both Australia and NZ.
My sugar has not gone down but at least it has not gone up, it is just slightly over the number to be concerned. I do have a sweet tooth and like to have cakes and tarts when I buy coffee out and a piece of cake with my morning and afternoon coffee at home.
At age 75, I do not care if I go tomorrow although I no longer believe in an afterlife but I do not want to be like my mother at age 97, on 24 hour oxygen and relying (mainly on my sister) to care for her.

It can be hard to monitor sodium, it seems to be in everything.

::)

Lately, I've started to watch my intake as well.  I've been snacking on unsalted popcorn, unsalted sunflower seeds and unsalted peanuts.

I've also started to drink diet cranberry juice and Bubly seltzer water, no sodium in either of those.

How is it possible for there to be 150 mg of sodium in one slice of bread? ???  One slice of bread!  >:(

And this is whole wheat bread, which is supposed to be good for you. So the bread is good for you for the whole grains and the fiber, but it's bad for you because of the sodium. Is that ironic, or what?  >:(

Is this commercial sliced bread, such as Orowheat? Yes, they can have a lot of salt. Apparently, it's a stabilizer, or retards spoiling, or something like that. I look for locally baked breads and am starting to use bread alternatives, such as tortillas or pita.

Tortillas and pitas wouldn't really work for me. I don't eat sandwiches except once in a while. I use bread primarily as toast for breakfast, again, not every day, or a single slice with dinner. At least with commercial bread, assuming the package labels are accurate, you know what you're getting per serving.

At least it's fun to search for low(er) sodium food items. My dad will be surprised to learn that "no salt added" ketchup is a thing (he didn't think it was). I haven't tried it yet, because I'm cheap: I refuse to not finish the open bottle of ketchup that I have in my refrigerator before I open the "no salt added" bottle.

The other day, I snapped up a thick piece of cornbread at the store and I wanted to make it into a breakfast today. What would be good to jazz it up? Some kind of tomato-y sauce? Please send ideas asap as I'm starting to get hungry!

I would have it with sausage and cover it with sausage gravy

Hope it turned out tasty!

I was at a BBQ today for lunch, typical BBQ fare,  hamburgers, hot dogs, bbq chicken, baked beans, pasta salad, blueberry pie, cheesecake, it was all good!

Almost none of that is typical BBQ fare in Australia/NZ, perhaps chicken and pasta salad, some might include a hamburger.
"A typical Aussie barbecue is with sausages, steak, fresh seafood, bread and tomato or barbecue sauce, they sometimes include salad but it's mainly about the meat and fish (and of course a few stubbies – that's beer to the non-Australians)"

Just apply all that fat and cholesterol directly to your arteries.  ;D

I've never been much of a breakfast cereal eater, but I guess now I'll be eating more of it. Shredded wheat has no sodium.

So far I have not eliminated much sodium from my diet, but I wonder if I have already eliminated enough to notice how salty some foods are? The soup I had for supper last night seemed a lot saltier than I remember.  ???

I'm sure it's possible.  I know when I weaned off of regular soda for diet, I noticed right away that regular soda suddenly tasted very sweet.

I've now managed to wean myself from diet soda to seltzer water.

The only type of water I drink. I am not paying for something which is free. Subway give me a bottle of water each year for my birthday (also a biscuit/cookie which I do not really like but have eaten). I have 3 bottles in the refrigerator(in case of emergency) and did not collect the offer this year.

Tap water is what I mostly drink too.

But it depends on the water quality where you live.

In some places the tap water tastes awful.

I have read that New York City supposedly has very good tasting water. That surprises me. I suppose it has something to do with the city's water coming from the Catskill Mountains, but it still surprises me.

I guess the taste has something to do both with the source of the water, and the chemical stuff they add to clean it.

That surprises me too.  That would be one of the last places I would think would have good tasting water.

Well, you go there often, so you can try it next time.

Then report back!  ;D

Two slices of toast and two bananas.

I didn't get up early enough to fry a couple of eggs,  :(  and the bananas needed to be eaten.  ::)

Post by: brian on June 13, 2019, 03:47:40 pm
I have a banana nearly every lunch if I am home, or out hiking. I eat 5 or 6 each week.
I only eat 2 eggs per week, for dinner on Sunday, alternating, scrambled, omelette, fried.
I could post the same breakfast every day of my life. Coffee, fruit juice (mixed orange/cranberry), weetbix with soy milk, 1 piece of multi grain toast with marmalade anda 2nd coffee.
