This drink my family aptly names "sadness."

It's one of those green drink things where it's a bunch of vegetables, raspberries, and I think lemons.

Tastes like absolute **** but it's real good for you.

It's a Sunday of a long weekend so same breakfast as a yesterday.... carbs...homemade high fiber muffin and a coffee...

five days a week it's a smoothie consisting of: half greens such as kale/spinach/whatever greens combo then a small banana, scoop of protein powder, with a mix of fruit, ground flax seed and almond milk....it sounds gross and it tastes divine

sometimes I add Spirulina...

Last night I made 2 loaves of whole wheat olive bread from scratch.

Now I am having it for breakfast.

It tastes so good that I am not having anything else with it.

A German curry sausage with salad and fries in a place on the edge of the woods heavily scented by the sun's heat behind the dunes along the South Spanish coast called Schnitzelhaus.

'hadn't done that in a long time.

Leftover spaghetti :)

I've done the cold pizza breakfast many times. Today, it'll probably just be cereal. I really like plain cornflakes, not frosted or sugared or anything. I can eat those any time of the day.

What I'd like is some veggie bacon, eggs, and hash browns with coffee. But alas, our larders are bare. I've settled for oat bread toast with Smart Balance spread and Smucker's natural creamy peanut butter, and coffee. Pretty tasty, but some bacon would've been nice.

Canned sausage gravy on toast. It is better served on biscuits but I am much better at just making toast. ;)

View attachment 67201718
I didn't even know there was such a thing (canned sausage gravy)!

Up north here, biscuits & gravy was never highly common back when I was a kid, but could be found then in the soul-food joints and the occasional truck-stop or diner. There was nothing better on a cold dark morning, than stopping in the diner one block over that was conveniently located in the middle of my paper-route, and wolfing down hot coffee and biscuits & gravy, rubbing elbows at the counter with the factory workers and truck-drivers! At 10 years old, I felt I was working-man like them, and it made me proud!

Then biscuits & gravy disappeared as the 70's soul-food places eventually died-off, and the truck-stops left the city when manufacturing died-off. But during the last decade biscuits & gravy seem to be making a come-back here (along with southern-style cooking in general) - but this time it's in the the higher-end hipper places and neighborhoods where it's celebrated as nouveau-cuisine! :(

But by pure luck, I have a dirt-cheap greasy-spoon diner not too far from me that serves it in an authentic unpretentious environment to old-timers that ate it before it became hip.

Funny how things come & go in this city ...

(and yes, I still love biscuits & gravy - and no, I don't want to read the ingredients list!)

Here Libby's sausage gravy can be found at Walmart ($1.33) and at Dollar General ($1.50). It has quite a bit of (fairy mild) sausage in it and (with toast or biscuits) makes a filling, quick and cheap breakfast. If I am even more in a hurry then I just have a can of roast beef hash or corned beef hash for breakfast - also fairly cheap (under $2/can).

The ingredients are not bad at all, like sausage gravy is just simply sausage fat, flour, milk, and some actual sausage added to it. Biscuits are usually flour and water, or flour and milk, plus something to rise the dough.

Ahh, Sunday breakfast is always my favorite meal of the week.

I generally start with a pot of coffee, a 5th of Jack Daniels and half a pack of Marlboros....

M-F: Yogurt with blueberries & honey. Black forest ham & gouda between two slices of three-cheese semolina toast.

Weekend: Raisin bran crunch or pancakes & bacon or scrambled eggs, bacon & English muffin (often in a homemade egg mcmuffin).
