So, it’s the end of the world and we’re all gonna have to use solar chainsaws, so whaddya do?

Well of course! You make breakfast dinner! What else? Um, just as soon as I get done with this blahg entry. And btw, the pic for today has nothing whatsoever to do with all of this. It’s Lake Nipigon back in 1953 before I was even alive (prob’ly on the way, though) and I am struggling with a photo prodject and it is one of the guinea pigs I’m testing for my prodject, so I’m posting it and y’all can just deal with it.

Anyway, if I am home here at the Landfill for a weekend and don’t have too many field trips scheduled, I can actually almost get ahead of the meal plan for the week. I cook just a little bit ahead and we have leftovers a couple of nights and I am not a bad cook when I actually put my mind to it, so the leftovers around here are not [usually] all that bad. If I am not at the Landfill over the weekend, the week is a big morass of constant late-afternoon stops at one grokkery store or another. In either case, as the week progresses, I end up feeling more and more pressed for time and by about Thursday, I am flying in the dark by the seat of my pants. Which isn’t always the best thing, believe me.

So. Today is Thursday and we had actual new food Sunday and Monday nights. And good leftovers on Tuesday. And a mish-mash but still good leftovers last night. And that was about enough. So what to do. Go out? Too social. (Yeah, I know I’m lame.) Take-out? Maybe about once every six months. Grokkery store. Yeeeeeearrrrggh. And then I remembered about breakfast dinner! Maybe about the one thing the Beach Urchins ate relatively enthuiastically for a few years. In those days, it was eggs and toast and hashbrowns and sausage or bacon. Tonight it’s gonna be some variation on the Crow’s Nest scramble, eggs scrambled with spinach and onion and garlic and tomato and feta and maybe some Greek olives. And I just happen to have a bag of hash browns in the freezer. And now. I better git goin’ and cook!

G’night! Kayak Woman

    I am a fan of “breakfast for supper”!! Nook – as we all know by now – is more a fan of supper for breakfast […my mind stopped …on … SALAMI!!!!!).

    When our family was all at home back in the 50’s and 60’s, our mom cooked us 3 “squares” a day every day. I know that my dad would call and “place his order” from work sometimes. He liked hot cakes for dinner! I was a teen ager before I realized that hot cakes were supposed to be a breakfast meal. We did have them for breakfast too, but we had them for dinner every few weeks. Our family did not go out to dinner because there were too many of us and it was too expensive. No fast food to speak of back then – maybe A&W. Oh yeah – I don’t remember leftovers very often either. We ate it all!

    Lake Nipigon == aulacogen. I don’t know why they taught us that Lake Superior was a glacial lake. It’s not. It’s been influenced by glacial activity, but it’s there because of the rift. Just like Nipigon. I’d like to go out there sometime. The rocks near the triple point junction are supposed to be pretty cool.
