Breakfast - A Foolish Consistency

Photos by Salt Water New England
Our breakfast is consistent day to day, even month to month, with slight variations depending on what fruit is in season. It has several courses, spread out over a few hours (with work in between) and includes coffee, cereal (hold the Roundup), fruit, yogurt, walnuts, hard boiled eggs, and fresh muffins. Almost everything, with the exception of the coffee and the watermelon, is organic.

All things may be always changing all the time, but breakfast seems to serve better as a constant.

    1. You are reminding me of my grandmother's similar remark about fruit juices: "Gold in the morning, silver at noon, lead at night."

  2. So much better than people whose breakfast consists of a doughnut, a cup of coffee, and a cigarette.

    1. Dead Rabbit Irish Coffee with
      Chicken Benedict on fresh buttermilk biscuits, side of rib eye steak-n-fries drizzled with sausage gravy. Followed by this mornings apple pie. Not all of us are going to die of "old age."

  3. Looks good! Although we do enjoy soft-boiled eggs with English muffins and preserves on the weekends. Sometimes sausage or thick-slice bacon too if I have the patience to cook it.

    Best Regards,

  4. I used to say that 'organic' just meant it contained no petroleum products. But I'm less certain of that now.

    My breakfast alternates between cereal one day and eggs and some kind of bread the next. Today I made a bannock, which should serve me through the weekend but both breakfast and lunch. Haven't made up my mind about dinner yet. At our house, you're on your own for dinner Friday and Saturday. On Sunday, we start all over.

  6. Much like us here too. Creatures of (healthy) habit.

    Oats (uncooked/cold/raw), topped with fruit (whatever is in season), milk and a little local honey - plus a good cup of tea serves us well throughout the year.

    On the weekends we 'spoil' ourselves with crumpets or english muffins topped with butter and jam.

  7. I find a small serving of whole milk yogurt tastes better and satisfies better than a large serving of non-fat yogurt. Quality over quantity I always say...and many others do too! ARH

  8. Muffy could you repost your muffin recipe? Many thanks.

  9. I was just showing my wife the photo of the bowls, because she's just about to eat her oatmeal out of one just like them. But I was wondering, why isn't the watermelon organic?
