You can make a really tasty omelet with egg beaters, reduced fat cheddar and a scattering of (real) bacon bits. Add a thin slice of tomato and a basil leaf if you like.

I was going to make egg, ham and cheese muffins...with a little mustard...no butter! But I like the idea of the omelets and I have the Costco bacon bits in the fridge to use up!

Thanks, Andy!

The only time I'd eaten kale was in Germany. Fast forward about 30 years, and we decided to grow kale. I'd bought kale a couple of times and found it tough and also too strong for my taste but my DH loves veggies (I am a protein person myself--I would hate to be cut back on protein...), so we planted kale. There is a definite difference between the kale I bought and the kale we grow. Last year, we had one kale plant that we dug up and brought inside. The leaves were SOOOO tender in the spring. "Baby" kale is lovely. One of the tricks to kale is to put it in the freezer for about 30 minutes. This sweetens it. Another trick is to remove the ribs. And, buy the smallest leaves you can get. I am sure I'll be posting about kale come summer...it does very well in our garden...

o
you can grow."spring" or young onions almost all year in most of ireland, so there's slight seasonal changes. but boring ol' relatively tasteless scallions don't cut it.

they should be sweet but also with that "green" taste.

and of course, loads of fresh irish butter and cream doesn't hurt.

btw, jenny, to be sure both champ and colcannon are irish.
What's the difference between green onions and scallions?

There are several types of green onions - , chives, scallions, leeks, spring onions. Think of the first three as small medium and large versions of the same shape. Spring onions are like larger scallions with a bigger bulb more like a small onion.

I've tried the 0% milk on cereal... just doesn't cut it for me. I'd rather cut out fat somewhere else than start my day off not enjoying my cereal.

That's what I thought. I don't understand what Buckytom meant.

I dislike the 0% milk in my cereal a little less than I dislike subbing the 1/2&1/2 in my coffee

I am working on reducing the amount of 1/2&1/2 I use in my coffee...but it has been a slow process...Hey! I gave up my Quad shot Breves! Give me a little time!

sorry tax. andy said it all. thanks andy.

i meant that very often the scallions i buy in my local supermarkets pale (tastewise, not colour) in comparison to fresh ones that i had i ireland, and more recently here from my neighbor's garden.

i grew garlic chives last fall and they survived the winter. i can't wait to add them to mashed.
