Breakfast with The Mrs.

The Mrs.: "I'm going to take my shower. What's for breakfast?"

Me, CherkyB: "Whatever we catch."

The Mrs.: "I don't think I can wait that long."
So I dug out the NY Times cookbook to look for something tasty. I settled on something called "Mock Eggs Benedict" that was poached eggs on toast with a milk and cheese sauce. I cooked and cooked and cooked. When I was finally able to get The Mrs. to come downstairs to eat it (after it was all cold - she decided she wanted to cut MaxieC's hair between the time I told her breakfast was ready and the time she actually ate), she sat down:
The Mrs.: "What is this?"

Me, CherkyB: "Breakfast."

The Mrs.: "Is it your own creation?"

Me, CherkyB: "No. It's from the NY Times book."

The Mrs.: "Oh... What did you substitute?"
Gratitude.

HannahC, for her part, declared it was delicious. She then proceeded to mush it around on her plate and then ask for a bowl of Frosted Flakes.

This is very interesting because I happened to cook D__ eggs this morning. Well, afternoon. He would have had breakfast at home but his friend called needing a ride; he had gotten a flat on what D__ first thought was his motorcycle, but was actually revealed to be his bicycle. I met up with him at Granny's at about 1:30, and he still hadn't eaten anything yet. Given that Granny is on the South Beach, there was nothing in the house except for bean sprouts, eggs, sauerkraut, whole wheat pasta, sausage, ice cream sandwiches (which I don't quite get), and four uncooked eggs. So I mixed those up with no milk, celery, and pepperjack cheese. Poor D__! I hope he feels better after he eats the spaghetti I'm cooking (i.e. heating up) for dinner.
