Think back in history to before there was a food industry - not that long ago. Farm people frequently ate eggs, bacon, bread, rice and other cereals, etc., for breakfast because it was abundant on the farm and because they needed to preserve the harvest. The food industry just reduced the amount of work and time needed to make it, which many people appreciated 70 years ago.

That said, I had leftover lamb gyros with tzatziki and chopped romaine for breakfast today.

Now that I cook I guard my leftovers, hoarding them to use on a night when I don't feel like cooking a full meal or know I won't have time. If that kind of night comes around and there are no leftovers it's breakfast-for-supper time!

can i ask for the recipe? ham and bean soup sounds good. did you buy a butt or picnic?
Ooo, it is good buckytom! I actually shared the recipe when I was coming around regularly when I first jointed DC. You can click here for the recipe: "Mom's Ham and Bean Soup"

I have used ham ends from the local butcher/smokehouse - the best. Do not use a maple/brown sugar/spiral sliced sweetie. The smokier the better. This time I have a Sugardale smoked ham, butt end. I can buy Sugardale either back home in OH or up here in MA so I guess you could get it there since you're in the middle. At $1.09 a pound you can't beat it!

It gets even better It doesn't burn me at all anymore. It makes me feel so good, like I'm on a chili high!

I was picturing a health food cafe serving this drink and having people go "Gah!" "Geez!" "Yikes!" etc. around the room.

At least we're going "yikes!" together. Lotsa hot mamas on DC now

yesterday's breakfast was raw cherry tomatoes, roasted laver, corn chips, and easy cheddar cheese (aerosol cheese), and a 50% diet snapple peach iced tea and 50% water.

i guess i was craving salt.

I've just finished my morning cup of Snip's "Put Hair on Your Chest" tea. Waiting for my nose to stop dripping before I making the rest of my breakfast (2 poached eggs on a bed of steamed bok choy, side of wild rice, some fresh pineapple).

OTF! I can't drink my cayenne tea without thinking of my DC friends hopping all over the place making silly noises anymore !
