I still like my eggs-grains-greens for breakfast as my favorite. I hardly ever eat anything sweet since starting this routine over 2 years ago--the morning hit of protein has taken care of that. There is no cereal in my house, and I still haven't used up the 4 lb of sugar I bought last summer to make b&b pickles.

And, I have shrunk four sizes since June 2012. Often, I don't eat anything until late afternoon. Sometimes it is some walnuts, other times, an ounce of cheese. And, since I live alone most of the time, I don't cook an evening meal more than once or twice a week. Right now, evening meal / lunch is a huge salad from the veggies in the garden and the berries on the bushes.

I finally found my egg coddlers! So coddled eggs, kale and a side of quinoa, a bowl of fresh blueberries, and a glass of beet juice.

I use the other method of coddling eggs, i.e. immersing into a pan of boiling water (having pierced the air end of the egg), simmering for 1 minute then leaving off the heat in the pan for 4 mins.

Result? A lovely soft boiled egg with soft egg white, i.e. not rubbery.

I eat 2 meals a day, so breakfast is brunch (combined with lunch).

I had a restaurant voucher so went to Cafe Rouge (do you have that branch chain in US)? They always do good quality cooking there. I had the confit de canard (duck confit). It came with dauphinoise potatoes and snap/snow peas avec a cherry and port sauce. It was divine! (Have had it several times before). Everything perfectly cooked.

I then went to a nearby bakery (called Paul) where I had the most exquisite apricot tart. Thin and crisp flaky pastry base, superb creme patisserie and a fresh tasting and slightly tart apricot with a glaze.

I often have brunch as well (we do know what brunch is, but I'm not familiar with that restaurant chain). I'm about to warm up some of the chicken-veggie-pasta with pesto cream sauce left over from dinner last night.

I have two coupons for Pepperidge Farm Bread. And they are good until September 7th. Use one this month, one in Sept. Of course I have to buy two loafs, but one can go into the freezer. One loaf of Cinnamon and one for Potato or for another specialty bread.

2 scrambled eggs with chopped bell pepper and chives, and a slice of toasted rye bread.

Still playin' with my Griddler.

Today we had overnight yeast vanilla pancakes, link sausage, real maple syrup, pineapple/banana juice, and coffee. We were sufficiently full.

I'm glad I only made a half recipe of the pancakes. As it was, I ended up with 24 5-inch pancakes. We ate 6 and I've packaged the others for the freezer.
