Catching up with breakfast

So, some of you might be thinking, here he goes again. He's forgotten all about this blog thing and we'll never hear from him. Not true, though. I've actually started a rough schedule period at work. Sometimes we work all night, sometimes all day, and it's been tough trying to keep up with my cooking and blogging. But I'm here to tell you that I have been on the ball. Let me tell you what we've accomplished thus far.

We made some more crumb muffins, this time with buttermilk. I still don't have the nutmeg in it, but good just the same, and easier with practice. I also put together some breakfast burritos the other day. I bought some nopales, heated them up and added some leftover chicken from another day. I added some sour cream/mexican cheese and turned it into a sauce. We shredded some raddish on top and it was great. Super good. The other delicious breakfast was inspired by all those fast food breakfast menus. I made some sausage patties, grillled some smokey bacon, and fried eggs in their oil. I had some sourdough enlgish muffins that I fried on one side and built some breakfast sandwiches. It's amazing how much better tasting and healthier they are when you make them at home.

Breakfast is quick and easy. It's good, of course, too. Even when we ate it at noon or later, it was yummy in my tummy. Plus, Dr. Oz told Oprah just yesterday that breakfast is the first step toward losing weight. You gotta get those satisfying, lasting proteins and fats if you want to get out on the right foot. Hooray for the big breakfast!

  1. I just found this blog of yours. Very nice. I drive by a nopales farm on my way to Tyler's preschool. I had no idea what they were until I read this. I just thought it was someone's very symmetrical garden of cactus. Good to know you can eat it.
