Maybe it's just me, but this loaf from Hawaii seems so much bigger than the one I found here in the middle of the desert.
You're right, it does seem sweeter than the ones I see in the stores here. I've never tried it with that bread. Will have to try it sometime and see what it does to my blood sugar.

I am on my steamed kale from the garden, poached farm eggs, Tex-Mex black bean kick again. I know I have posted pics before..the eggs are the neighbor down the road from the Elders. I miss my girls. But at least this summer I have kale growing outside my window.

Nothing yet. Here it is going on 1:30 and I have yet had time to take a bite of anything. I got a late start today. Today was my appointment for my vitals to be taken and pick up on my monthly meds. As I walked into the door coming home from Winthrop, Teddy was jumping all over the place. I thought he needed to go out and do his thing. He needed to go out all right. For playtime.

I wanted to slay him. Instead, I let him play for about twenty minutes and brought him back inside. Someone came by with another male dog and Teddy being Teddy thinks he is a Great Dane and wants to go after it.

So now I am having my first meal of the day. Leftover American Chop Suey.

Thumbs up Wowza! Now that’s really good, honest, diner-style food.

DH and I went out for breakfast today to this place that seems rather new. We’ve driven past a few times, but not during their hours of operation, 6am til 2pm everyday but Tuesday.
We had to be out super early for an appointment and made it in to the diner today before 10am.
Between 6 and 10 they serve their Early Bird Special menu, not bad for $5.95. The choices are pretty wide and it includes coffee, tea, juice or soda.
Both my husband and I ordered 2 Eggs, Ham, Country Potatoes and toast, oh and for 99˘ extra, I added Country Gravy over my Potatoes, YEAH BABY!
They offer their entire menu all day, that’s breakfast and lunch meals.
We are definitely going back for the Meatloaf and homemade fresh Corned Beef Hash!

Wowza! could be repeated over and over... you can't even BUY those ingredients for that price, much less pay someone to cook it for you!

I'm drooling.

Ya know dragn, I hadn't thought of it that way, but you're right!!
It was quite a generous plate of food and mighty taste... I wish I had taken a photograph, but I mean diner food is what it is.
NOW, the table across from us that ordered the homemade fresh corned beef hash was a whole `nother bag a beans! MUST HAVE!!

We went back to First Watch. I had lemon ricotta pancakes served with lemon curd and fresh strawberries, plus their millionaire bacon. The pancakes were the size of the plate, 2 of them, and I only made it thru half of them. They definitely had lemon peel in them and I think it might have been candied as there was a tiny crunch in each bite. The bacon had brown sugar, maple syrup, black and cayenne peppers. Definitely had a bit of a kick to it. Brought a box home.

Craig had a gruyere and smoked ham omelette, with potatoes. Omelette was great again. The potatoes were slightly overcooked from precooking, and could have used a bit more browing, but were still good enough that he finished them.

The weather was a little more cooperative today and I felt like going the extra mile for breakfast.

We had vanilla-flavored waffles, link sausages, eggs (sunny side up for Glenn, soft scrambled for me), orange juice and coffee. The waffles were big, thick Belgian-style ones, which means we were FULL. The bonus...there were 6 waffles left to have tomorrow.

This morning's breakfast was sausage links, hash browns and eggs over easy with a buttered english muffin and apricot jam.
