I always eat my papaya seeds and all and I dry the extra seeds and use them in cooking.
What is the best way to dry the extra seeds?

Put your seeds in a sieve and rinse off the bits of papaya. Lightly dry with a paper towel and place them on a flat surface in a single layer. I use the polystyrene trays that I get my papayas in. Place them in a window sill to dry for a few days.
When they are no longer sticky they are ready to store.
I keep mine in a glass jar with a bit of rock salt to absorb moisture. You don't have to add the salt, you can just keep them in an airtight container.

Wow, Fearless Leader of Breakfast Excellence! What a spread! I was a Junior Scout yesterday -- had sauteed beet greens with a fried egg on top and a thin rye crisp cracker. Still want to investigate the savory oats thing. I think that's going to be a hard sell, thanks to a lifetime of butter & sugared oatmeal.

Thanks for the continuing example you're setting.

Hey! No fair! Where are the greens??

I took a pic of my small (8") plate with today's efforts at a healthful breakfast. I haven't tried posting a food picture yet, but here goes:

Looks great! I'll be having a 2nd breakfast of steamed bok choy and one poached egg soon. I was waiting for the girls to lay fresh eggs <g> and I had to eat the papaya before it went bad and was chicken feed. I thought the three sage leaves counted as greens? (BTW, that dish is a dessert dish and NOT as big as it looks in the pic).

Here's what the parfait looked like:

Or Green Eggs or is that greens and eggs?

How do you cook your greens CW?

They always look so tasty!

The rest of my breakfast: RRV savory cereal (mushroom, grated zucchini, carrot, miso), stir-fried bok choy with grated fresh ginger and cayenne pepper (fresh), carrot, added, 1 poached egg and the rest of the papaya with the seeds. A sm glass of milk on the side. I probably don't need to eat for the rest of the day so will probably have fruit and veggies for supper. This could count as lunch <g>.

Thanks. I usually just steam the greens--but not for long. Today's bok choy was stir-fried with a wee bit of EVOO for about 4 minutes, just until more or less wilted. I time the greens by how long it takes to do the eggs. When the eggs are done, the greens are done.
