Re: Breakfast


As spring rolls in, I'm really trying to incorporate the glut of new veggies into our breakfast. This weekend I made just a simple plate of fruit, deviled eggs, cheese toast (cheese sliced on toast and put under the broiler) and stuffed sugar snap peas. The stuffed peas were SOOOO good! My mother-in-law won't eat "real" cheese - just the Laughing Cow light cheese spreads. I had some from her last visit and couldn't for the life of me figure out what to do with it until reading one of my Martha Stewart books. She stuffs snow peas with boursin, St Andre or soft goat cheese. I figured it was the perfect way to use up some of that cheese and to get some veggies on the smorgasbord. We sat on the porch and all shared the plate - Willa had been asking for a picnic so this was perfect!

And then this morning I made the British classic, bubble and squeak with cabbage from the farm. I had some left over macaroni and cheese and decided to slip that in since the last mac and cheese breakfast was such a hit. This stuff was great too! I served it with fried eggs and a fruit salad.

Re: Breakfast


Those really look good! I've GOT to get back to fixing myself a decent breakfast. It's hard to cook for just one sometimes. DH is usually up and out the door before I even roll over in bed, so most times, breakfast is on my own.

sometimes, I'll do peanutbutter on toast, or I'll fix a fried egg sandwich, but here lately, I've just been too lazy to fix myself breakfast. NOT a good thing to do!

Re: Breakfast


Breakfast really is my only meal of the day right now. I wake up RAVENOUS and craving veggies and fruit, so of course I give in! But lunch rolls around and I just want a little bite. Same with dinner. I seem to just nibble on bits of this and that the rest of the day. How I wish for a normal, non-squished digestive system! emoticon But at least I get a good breakfast in.

And I know the feeling about cooking for one. Some mornings hubby wakes up and says he's not hungry (as I have 4 pots going with some insane gourmet concoction) and Willa refuses everything. But I still need something, so I persist!

Re: Breakfast


you'll get back to normal soon enough! Eating on this and that throughout the day is actually probably better than stuffing yourself at one meal.

One of the breakfasts in the diet I just posted about in Open Circle/April Chat thread, is peaches and pecan scramble. My SIL was telling me about it. It's scrambled eggs, peaches, pecans, applesauce and cinnamon. She said it's divine! With stuff like that to eat, I'll probably do well on this diet LOL.

Re: Breakfast


My breakfast is very simple: a diced apple, yoghurt and a handful of almonds (to replace the cereal). But I usually take a carrot or two, a banana, another small serving of yoghurt and some bits of whiteback (for the fat) to work, and nosh on that through the morning. Oh, and always more almonds.

I try to cook at least one meal a day, either lunch or dinner. Often veggies with some kind of meat, fish or egg. I very, very often make veggie stir fry. Right now, I'm eating one of my microwave creations: buttered rice with tuna, green beans and some orange lentils, all cooked together in one pot. Yes, the lentils are legumes, but I just cannot throw away food, so I slip them in by the spoonful.

Re: Breakfast


Firle thanks for reminding me about yogurt! Some times Willa will go through a whole quart of yogurt on her own in a week and other times - like now - she doesn't want any. So I never get it out in the morning and therefore I don't eat it! It's a great source of calcium and protein and I really should be eating more.

Seems like carbs are really my go-to for breakfast the last few days. I'm really craving pancakes, toast, etc which is pretty unusual for me. I figure it's something the baby must need so I'm indulging for the time being. I figure its better to give in to this craving than the midnight ice cream cravings I've been having for the past week! emoticon

This morning: crepes with strawberry cream cheese filling. WONDERFUL!

Re: Breakfast


You post the BEST looking food pictures, I try not to drool on the keyboard when I look, LOL.

My breakfasts have been much like Firle's lately, homemade yogurt, almonds or walnuts, an apple or banana.
