Ron and I love to do stuff together. One of the things we love to do is cook together. I admit I use to do more of my share of it than I do now, but I still am part of the two man team. Yesterday I came up with the idea of creating a breakfast bake this morning. I had made one 11 years ago and Ron loved it. So I gave Ron a list of things we needed and off he went to the store. The last time I had to cook everything in advance, prepare it , and then bake the finished mixture.
Ah how things have improved. Ron was able to get a couple bags of precooked crumbled sausage and bacon. The ham also was cut up, even though Ron did cut it smaller. We got a huge bowl out and I went to town creating my own recipe. First I added the crumbled meats with the chopped ham. Then I added three different types of shredded cheeses. Then Ron cut up a velveeta spicy cheese and added that. Then I added a bunch of hash browns, which are simply shredded potatoes. Now if you like peppers and onions you can add them. Once we had all the stuff in the bowl, I mixed it up by hand.
Ron had 6 really nice mini loaf cooking pans. I filled them with the mixture up to about an inch from the top of the pan. At the same time Ron took 9 eggs and put them in a bowl and using his new stick blender I got him, he whipped them up with some water. This he poured over the mixture in the baking pans up to the top level of the mixture. This gives the eggs room to rise as they soak into every part of the mixture. Ron gave the pans a shake as he filled them as the eggs settle in the nooks and crannies.
We preheated the convection countertop oven to 425. We set the timer at 30 minutes. We checked them at 20 minutes to make sure. Ron ate a slice or two and pronounced them great. I ate mine with hot sauce. I did not add salt with the mixture as I prefer people to add the salt at the time of eating as people have such different tastes. I agree it was great. The most wonderful thing is Ron and I did it together. It was a great joy to be creating side by side as we made this with no measurements or complete recipe. Poor Ron had to do all the clean up as just the small part I did wore me out, but he did not mind at all.
Here are some pictures. Sorry I did not think to take the pictures until after it had been baked and we started to eat. Be well. May your days not be bitchy. Hugs
Edit update. More on this story and more video here. Hugs
I was in a doctors office when I read this post. These made me laugh hard . People were looking at me like I was one of the ones pictured here. One lady moved away to another seat. I kept thinking of the bird looking over her many brood thinking “oh my God, what have I done”. Thanks and enjoy. Hugs
Some days it doesn’t pay to get out of bed. I have had days like this. I can say one guy was really happy he invested in the better trailer hitch system. I wonder, if one of these had happened to you, would you have cried in frustration or swore in anger? Thanks to The Story Reading Ape for posting them. Now I have to go see if there is a few salvageable beers. Hugs
For people who love to cook, and who feel breakfast is a great meal to try new things with, this reblog is for you. Jamal writes about a lot of different subjects. I recommend a visit to his blog for anyone who has missed out on it so far. This breakfast idea is great and one I have not tried. I will be trying it this week. One of the good things about Ron working nights is he comes home in the morning hungry. I will try this for him. If he likes it as much as I think he will, I might even tell him where I got it from… 🙂 Hugs
So can you tell bread was one of my favorite things before living a low-carb lifestyle? I’m telling you, I could turn anything into a sandwich. Sandwiches – no one in particular – were my favorite food and I’d have them often. That’s why so many of my last meal remixes have included keto bread. It must be a craving coming to test my will.
Today, I put a twist on one of my favorite college brunch items: sausage and cornbread. The original recipe comes from an old friend and roommate. With a single box of Jiffy cornbread mix, baked over cooked, crumbled breakfast sausage, the epic breakfast dish is ready when golden brown.
Instead of using the keto bread recipe to make biscuits or buns, I spread the uncooked dough over spicy crumbled sausage I’d prepared in the skillet. I doused the sausage with cayenne pepper, black pepper…

This is a powerful post that can either dislodge your reality or reaffirm it. It speaks eloquently on a subject that has no right to exist. I hope that everyone who reads it can find the peace in themselves, and that it soothes the body as it does the mind. I wish you well. Hugs
Another rabid dog has rammed his lorry, truck, whatever, into a crowd of passersby. Dead? Several? Injured? More? Where? Stockholm. I searched my memory. Was Sweden a colonial power? No. Involved in slavery? Probably not. Crimes of war? No. Well, some of their descendants conquered England in 1066, but I’m sure there is a statute of limitations on that. Let’s cut to the chase. Once more, a rabid dog has killed civilians. How long will we endure? Until WWIII? The following photos come from my father’s archives. Taken in 1948, they show scenes of Le Havre, a major harbour on the French North Coast, before and after WWII and the Allied bombings.
Place Gambetta, le Havre. The only thing standing after the bombings are the lampposts and the statue on the right, probably a memorial to WWI, judging by its style. Look closely to the right on the…
