Let's talk about Breakfasts. The most important meal of the day. Yada yada.
I eat Breakfast. Every day. But I hate preparing breakfasts. I don't do cereal (milk, bleech). Bread carbs are bad supposedly. South Beach, Dukan, Bernstein.... diets generally frown on carbs or recommend low-carb/carb products. Have you tried no-carb pita (don't). Yogurt and berries in a smoothie don't hold me past 11 a.m. and then I'm ready for lunch.
Plus, to add to my own personal stress-o-meter, I was determined to find a healthy and substantive Breakfast offering and cook it in bulk so that it would last all week i.e., get up, get a coffee, the grab-n-go meal (warmed up if needed), the ipad and the half dozen newspaper I download every day and hunker down to read and munch quickly and in not messily.
Tall order. I Google-d for awhile and found a recent set of Ottawa Citizen recipes for On-the-Go Breakfasts for fall i.e,. getting kids off to school in the mornings with no muss, no fuss. The feature had waffles, oatmeal and burritos and none of those were tempting. But the recipe for sausages and eggs gave me an idea so I took the recipe as a base and modified it almost completely.
And, oh yeah, Sunday was such a crummy day it seemed a perfect opportunity to tackle the assignment before me.
The movie ''Julia and Julie'' was playing on Channel 62 as I cooked -- how ironic -- as Husband pointed out to me a few times that day as he watched in amazement at the cooking frenzy.
ADD girlcat Grace yelled at the TV movie incessantly from her perch at the back deck window. She has her own Kitty DVD that she asks me to play all the time (usually by yowling and pawing at the TV). I finally turfed her from the kitchen and shut the French door. So then it became 3 pathetic little faces staring through the glass.... sigh .... spoiled much? Of course, they got an outing.
