Second and third shifts in our computer operations division used to cook up a storm in their 70th floor lunch room. We used to have a lot of heavy weight staff with nicknames like Big Bird and the Penguin.

BT, You'd have enjoyed breakfast at my Grandpa's on a Saturday morning. It usually started with Sugar Smacks, or bread, soaked in milk and sprinkled with sugar, followed by Eggs made in a poaching pan, with the little cups well lubricated with butter, and either pancakes, or waffles with sausage. If it was pancakes, Grandpa would bring them in while singing - "Pancakes are delicious, pancakes are so fine, I outta know, cause I like 'em so, that I eat 'em all the time."

And I was so ridiculously skinny back then. I wonder if I ate that breakfast every Saturday, if I'd be skinny again.

All I know is that food was good at Granpa's, no matter which meal was taking place. He's the guy who introduced me to delicacies like pickled pigs feet, head cheese, thin sliced roast beef (that he roasted) for sandwiches, things like that. My Dad gave me raw hot dogs to snack on, or a chunk of colby or cheddar cheese, or a stick of pepperoni (that's right, a whole stick!", and great foods like that. He also made lots of flap jacks, and fried eggs, two slices of french toast with a slice of Velveeta melted between them, and good things like that.

I was a well fed, skinny kid. Those were the days, my friend.

Breakfast this morning was a frozen half banana, with a half cup of frozen mango chunks, blended with one cup milk, one cup of water, with a bit of ginger and nutmeg thrown in, and low-carb protien meal replacement powder. Instant sherbet. Tastes great and full of good things. I did cheat and eat a small slice of liverwurst, just because I felt like it was the right thing to do.

Seeeeeeya; Chief Longwind of the North

When I was a small child, my mother was making tapioca pudding. My sister told me they were 'fish eyes.' To this day I refuse to even try and taste it. And when I make fish stock with a fish frame, I have to close my eyes when I put the frame in the pot. The idea of haivng fish eyes cooking in my pot just turns my stomach.

My sister also told me that damsel flies (dragon flies) would sew my mouth shut. I spent the whole summer keeping my mouth wide open so it wouldn't get sewn shut. I obviously had a very tramatic childhood.

My sister used to tell me asparagus were elephant pimples and that if you stand under a Jacaranda tree and a flower falls on your head you become really clever. I spent hours under bloody Jacaranda trees!
And my brother! Always waking me up to find the "horse's keys"
I have issues over that lol!

My breakfasts will be the same for the near future. Hot cereal, an egg, coffee and a V-8 juice (low sodium). 300 calories.
