If you are new to this forum family then you may be wondering what kind of goofy question is that on a health care forum. idea We all suffer with medical conditions and with most of us there is pain involved...sometimes a lot of pain. Or maybe you are the loved one of one of these persons. This forum is all about how we help and support each other, how we gain back more quality to our lives, and how we can learn and share what we gain along the way and hopefully make not only our lives better but the lives of others who come to join us.

But we need to also remember that there is the other side of life...the side that isn't concentrated on illness and pain. That's why we started the daily Koffee Klatch. This is a time to laugh, reminisce, chit-chat about the silly things in our lives...all fun things and no pain. In fact the 'P' word is not allowed... tongue So each day we share our thoughts or experiences on a different topic. Often it includes food, sometimes we talk about our past, and other times we just get goofy! Laughter is our goal. So, please join us whether this is your very first day on Healing Well or you're a seasoned veteran.
Do you have a special breakfeast day? Or a once-in-a-while treat yourself breakfeast?
     Recently my husband has been taking the girls to get doughnuts on Saturadays. I appreciate having a morning to myself where I can sleep or catch up on tasks I need done. Normally, I make a large brakfast table each day. Between cooking and cleaning up the aftermath I walk into the kitchen at 6am and don't get to sit again until 9:20 or so. Needless to say I appreciate the morning off from cooking and cleaning.
So what is your special breakfeast day?



Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood

Our special breakfast day is pancake day.....used to be once a week, on Saturday. I would make homemade blueberry pancakes with homemade syrup, my kids were in heaven! (my husband too!) It's been a while since I've done that.....thanks for the reminder, Dani!

Two eggs over-easy, hash-browns with gravy, bacon, & wheat toast! As soon as it hits the table, I throw the Tabasco sauce to it! Yumm!
Of course I rinse it all down with fresh coffee!

We will occasionally have breakfast for dinner. If we have company, I will bake muffins or do an overnight casserole. I also like making breakfast tacos when we have company. That's fun for me.

We go out for breakfast about twice a month. Sure, it's easy enough to make eggs or french toast at home but it's also wonderful to have someone else prepare the food and clean up the mess.

It's about half the cost of eating dinner out.

We also have breakfast for dinner about once a week. Of course, I have dinner for breakfast too so it evens out. Leftover chicken parmigiana for breakfast starts the day off quite nicely!

about the only thing I can eat for breakfast is a Pop Tart, I tried eggs to oatmeal and all that upsets my stomach to the point of diarrhea.
But I think my hubby would eat those Funnel Cakes at IHOP...

I use to make SOS for Sunday Breakfast after Mass, I fry a pound of breakfast sausage, and a pound of ground beef and 4 or 5 medium to large finely diced onions and 4 or 5 cloves of garlic also finely diced, throw that into the skillet add salt and black pepper and let it fry till the meat actually starts getting some crispy bround on it, and there is no more liquid left in the skillet, ( it takes about an hour or so to fry it up) when it is ready I put in a quarter to a half cup of flower on the fried meat and stir it in well and let it brown some with the meat, then I just pour in milk ( about a quart to a quart and a half) and turn the heat down to low and slowly stir till it thickens and it is bubbling hot, Serve it over fresh biscuits, or toast, or better yet hash browns!. I like putting a couple of over easy eggs top of it all! A couple of 3 or 4 slices of bacon also goes good with this! mmmmmmm good!
