Poor Vince! We’ve been back in Texas over a week and all we’ve had for breakfast is cereal. We get up and start working in the shop or sewing room, work til we’re about to drop (which doesn’t take us long!), come in and eat a bowl of cereal, rest a while and get back to it. For dinner, Vince has grilled lamb chops one night, steaks one night, and burgers last night. I think I’ve cooked dinner – meat, veggies and salad – twice since we’ve been back.
This morning we were out working and Vince said “Could we have a cooked breakfast?” I said sure . . knowing we were out of bread. We had flour tortillas and I could make biscuits, which is what I did.
We’re getting to the point where I’m missing things in the kitchen that are either packed or already in Missouri. I keep plenty of boxes of salt but after making the boiled peanuts this week, I realized the box I was using was almost empty, I had thought it would have enough to last til we moved and had already packed all the extra. I knew there had to be at least one stray box of salt sitting around and thankfully I found one so I don’t have to buy salt.
There is no shortage of cast iron around here but my favorite skillet for making biscuits is in Missouri.
That’s ok . . I had another skillet that worked fine and it may end up becoming my favorite biscuit skillet.
Any time I make baked potatoes, I always make extra in case there are bad/gross spots inside the potatoes. We never seem to get good potatoes here. I hope it’s just here and not everywhere because I’d love to trust that most of the potatoes I buy and cut are going to be usable.
If the potatoes I baked or us are good, then I have extra potatoes ready to use for breakfast potatoes. I just cut them up, leaving the skin on them, add a little olive oil, cajun seasoning and stick them in the air fryer.
Vince’s plate: biscuits, bacon, eggs and breakfast potatoes.
Back to having cereal for breakfast for a few days.
