Today I made home fries, bacon eggs and peppers/onions.
I peel the potatoes and dice them real small. Toss them with a little bit of oil and microwave to soften them up. While that's happening, get out the old cast iron skillet and fry up four or five slices of bacon cut into pieces. Thick cut apple wood smoked bacon, of course.
When the fat has been rendered, toss in the diced green pepper and onion, and cook them up until they're softened up and some of the sugars released, but not all the way brown. Remove that into a bowl and cover to keep warm.
Then it's time to do the potatoes. Fry those up in the skillet until they're crispy, which doesn't take long at all after having been softened up in the microwave. Meanwhile, as those are cooking, I've got another cast iron skillet to scramble some eggs. Beat four eggs in a bowl with a bit of half and half and salt/pepper. Toss them in the hot skillet and scramble for about a minute, and remove from heat while still a little wet. Toss everything together in the skillet with the potatoes, the heat from which will finish cooking the eggs. Add in some tabasco sauce and voilà, awesome breakfast in about half an hour. Can eat it as is or wrap in a tortilla.
Most Other times I just have a bowl of cereal. To be honest, it's rather depressing cooking all by yourself. Sometimes, I do get the urge, though.

Wheat Chex breakfast cereal. I haven't had cereal in my cupboard in ages. It's like a comfort food. I may or may not go crazy on cereals this winter.

Not holding anything back here! This is going to be an ole southern breakfast for Christmas morning! Cheesy eggs, fried potatoes, biscuit and gravy, bacon, sausage, and grits. I'm making the gravy from my Grandma's teaching and I just found out this morning that I am going to be a grandma myself :D We'll a step Grandma, but good enough for me :D

For Christmas dinner we have a ham that just went into the oven and prime rib on the smoker. I'm making potato casserole and green bean casserole, separately. Other family are bringing the deserts this time. I made sure there is plenty of pumpkin pie! :D Merry Christmas everyone!

Back to Mc D's tomorrow morning. I have to admit that I've kinda missed it. I've really enjoyed the home cooked breakfasts over the weekend, but I still have that craving for fast food, if you know what I mean :D
