“Real Breakfast”

The teenager asked this morning if we could have some “real breakfast.” So after I drank a couple big glasses of green juice, I made some “real breakfast” for him and hubby. I started by sautéing some onions, mushrooms & an organic, spicy sausage that I had in the freezer. I also made some scrambled eggs. I took a shortcut on the waffles and just toasted some organic whole wheat waffles that I had in the freezer.

Real Breakfast 01

Hubby and the teenager liked their “real breakfast.” :o)

Yesterday, Diana from A Little Bit of Spain in Iowa looked into the refrigerators of some fellow bloggers, including mine. It’s fun looking into others’ fridges, so why don’t you head over there and check it out… And while you are there, check out Diana's blog. Diana focuses on eating organic, locally grown food as well as growing and preserving her own fruits and vegetables. Plus, she shares wonderful stories. I'm looking forward to trying out some of her canning and preserving recipes next year. She has been nominated for several Foodbuzz Awards, so keep her in mind when you are voting!

Questions: What did you have for breakfast today? What is the most interesting item in your fridge right now?

Be well,

    That looks like a great breakfast! I had an egg beater omelet with ham and swiss cheese with a slice of toasted rye bread on the side - perfect Saturday morning bfast!

    I just cleaned out my fridge! Mmm. I have smoked salmon for my hubby's breakfast - that's probably the most interesting!

    that sounds like a brunch style breakfast! we had a great breakfast today: toasts, cake, pancake and juices! :)

  3. Mmm...It's been a while since I've cooked myself a decent breakfast. That reminds me...I have some bacon in the freezer. I think that's a good excuse to cook a good breakfast.

    All I had this morning was a cream cheese danish from the farmer's market with some POM juice.

  4. What a nice fridge! It's so clean and precise. I see you enjoy some Guiness sometimes? Or maybe that's your husband. I like that you have the wasabi mayo. It was you who sold me on it! And, is that butternut squash soup in the bottom? YUM!

  5. Ooh that breakfast looks delicious! For breakfast I had oatmeal with strawberries! perfect for the fall!

    Wow.. that's quite the breakfast! I'd be full for days!! haha!! Hmm.. my breakfast today consisted of coffee & an egg sandwich on whole wheat bread with cheese & a banana. Yum! More than what I usually eat for breakfast, but haven't had much of an appetite the last week while I had this head cold, so it seems to be back! ;)

  7. I had oatmeal but not until 10:00! I know I should eat earlier, but I've never been a breakfast eater. Yours looks amazing though.

    The most interesting thing in my refrigerator is probably Greek Yogurt. I finally found it here, and am trying to like the different texture of it!

    Looks like you made the husband and teenager a delicious breakfast!

    I had pumpkin oats for the first time (this season) today. Quite tasty :)

    Most interesting item? Hmmm...I have everything from dried anchovies to mango chili vinegar!

  9. I had turkey sausages, frittata, more frittata, a pork link, and omelet! Hee hee, I went to the school's dining's buffet style! ;-)

  10. I had oatmeal with apples and cinnamon today for breakfast, and it was rather yummy!

    As for my fridge? There is literally nothing in it. Some butter (real butter), 1 bottle of ice tea (lipton, unsweetened), 4 onions, 4 chicken breasts. (I need to go shopping!!)

  11. those mushrooms look so savory and delicious. i havent eaten yet today, i need to get on it!

    Loved peeking into your fridge! Great breakfast - the sausage saute is a great idea!

    I had a coffee protein shake this morning for breakfast. Girls had apple pancakes and fruit.

  13. Hello there,

    I totally cherish your style.
    Morning can be a distressing time as you attempt to juggle getting the children dressed for school, completing homework, tidying up wrecks and attempting to get a significant dinner in them before they leave for school. Trust me, Really this post is helpful for us.

    Thanking you
