Breakfast musings - eggs

Thursday, January 24, 2013

I like eggs. I hate that we were taught that they are bad for us. I do not understand WHY anything that tasty can possibly be bad when used in moderation. I only have two or three eggs per week straight up. I prefer them fried, over easy. But I was raised with over hard fried eggs. YUCK. I did like those as a kid, though. I had no idea that eggs could be better if fried over easy!

    The studies were done on dried eggs (which doesn't have the lethicin). Eggs you crack are fine in moderation.

    Oh, I love eggs too! I prefer them over medium (white done, yellow runny), but I'm not very good at cooking them that way. Nowadays, I just boil a bunch and keep them in the fridge for a quick breakfast.

Breakfast musings - Bacon

Wednesday, January 23, 2013

I like bacon, too. Thick, smoked bacon. Two or three pieces. I cook them on my griddle. My mom taught us to place the bacon, pieces pretty much overlapped, on the hot griddle, and then slide the bottom one out, one at a time, to fry. That way, each piece was partially cooked before the cook slid it out from underneath the others. Of course, I now buy my bacon in 1.5 pound packaging (and freeze what I do not need), and it is packaged stacked, not tiled. So, I just spread the pieces out on the griddle. But every time I cook bacon, about once a month, I think about the way Mom did it.

    Brings back memories of my childhood.... I never liked bacon and my mother was always forcing me to eat it. I finally found out why I hated it so much.... I'm allergic to pork! I even dislike turkey bacon, I guess it just reminds me of the real thing.

Breakfast musings - Juice

Tuesday, January 22, 2013

Juice. I never grew up with any fruit juice. We had tomato juice for lunch on occasion. But orange juice was a breakfast event only in the fall. No apple or pineapple juice either. We had milk for meals. Always and ever. Whole milk. I suppose there was reduced fat milk in the late 19502 and 1960s, but I have no awareness of it. We received milk for a short time, when I was little, at the front door from a milk delivery man. I remember mother bringing in the milk bottles (quart sized, I think), into the kitchen. But that all ended about the time I started kindergarten in 1958. Now I drink juice (about 4 ounces) every couple of days or so. It feels strange!

    I remember when milk was not homoginized and we had to shake the bottles.

    I was brought up in a family that drank milk with every meal too. I like juice and will occasioinally buy the no-sugar-added kind but prefer to eat my fruit. Thanks for the stroll down milk's memory lane.

Breakfast musings - Toast

Monday, January 21, 2013

Toast. Hmm. A standard food item. I love sourdough, but like good wheat or oatmeal bread, too. Two pieces, nicely toasted all over, with good creamery butter and jam. No grape. I do not care for grape. I want raspberry, strawberry, blackberry. NOT grape!

My grandmother toasted her toast on a stand-up metal thing on her stove. She BURNED the toast each and every time. Grandfather never complained. He said that was the way to get Melba toast. Well, as a small kid, I hated rock hard dry toast. It probably was not rock hard, but it was surely burned. My grandparents scraped the burned parts off, place the burned parts in the compost bucket, and buttered up the remaining bread. My grandparents always had fresh butter from the feed store or the Mexican bakery. That butter was the best butter ever (other than the butter I had from New Zealand while in Barbados). Oh, my!

    I always put cinnamon sugar on mine. Or butter with honey and the two would swirl around together. Yum!
