    Default Breakfast! (or brunch... or whatever)

    I don't know what to call it yet, I'm cooking but am no where near ready to
    eat. And Mom is still asleep. I didn't cook breakfast on Sunday, nor
    yesterday (Labor Day, I didn't!)

    This morning so far I've baked some biscuits. Okay, they were frozen
    biscuits. Yards better than those things that come in a can and have been
    known to cause blondes to think they were shot in the back of the head when
    said can exploded

    I baked bacon. (375F on the rack of the broiler pan, 20-25 minutes give or
    take.) Interesting (or not) note: Homel's "black label" thick sliced bacon
    actually comes in 1 lb. packages, not 12 oz pretending to be 16 oz. It was
    on sale 2/$5 so I got several packages and stuck them in the freezer. The
    packages I picked up are more lean than usual, too; hard to find in streaky
    bacon.

    Picked up a dozen large eggs at Walgreen's yesterday. It was a 2-fer $3
    deal but I still got them for a buck fifty. Last time I was at the grocery
    store they were $1.99/doz. If you care whether or not your chickens run
    around free before laying eggs add 40 cents to the equation. And I still
    have no clue why brown eggs cost at least 20 cents more per dozen than
    white. Anyway, eggs any which way later

    I'm toying with the idea of cornmeal pancakes... or home fries. Or both.
    I'm in a cooking breakfast mood! But not enough to grate potatoes for
    shredded hash browns

    I love cornmeal pancakes! So, what did you decide to make?

    Good question. We extra large eggs from a local vegetable stand. They
    are always brown, but they are 35 cents cheaper there than in the
    grocery store.

    I realize that it is too late for today, but some time you should try
    oatmeal pancakes. Just add some quick cooking oats to the the batter and
    cut down on the liquid, or you can add some leftover cooked porridge.

    Home Fries is why I always try and bake some extra Potatoes.

    :-)

    Or before I go to bed throw several potatoes in the nuker and start it.

    In the morning I have nice fully cooked cool potatoes ready to slice and
    dice.

    Would those be similar to fried mush? I love fried mush.

    Speaking of great breakfasts, on party-out nights, we used to go to
    breakfast and order granny omelets - hashbrowns on the bottom, eggs
    omelet-style (with ham or bacon) on top, and melted cheese over all.
    To die for - probably, literally, although I'm still here. Those were
    the good ol' days.

    Jill, I keep Ore-Ida frozen hash browns or O'Brien potatoes around for
    just such occasions.
