Probably depends on the green veggie. Spinach got Popeye appeal, y'know.

My boss just gave me a quart can of John McCann's steel cut Irish oatmeal. I don't know if it's any good, but the can is freaking awesome. Looks like a can of paint.

She openly admitted it was a re-gift and she had no desire to spend 30 minutes making oatmeal.

That's what you want man. It's the best. But when I say that, the islanders claim it's just porridge and no particular porridge can be the best.

You pay about $9.00 for the can. Ordinary steel cut oats in bulk at the coop are about $32 for 50# for organic. That's about .64 per #.

They are really the best oats, steel cut that is. butter and maple syrup and cinnamon. If you can't be bothered to cook them a long time in the am then soak them over night. If you cook them in milk they are extra delicioso.

And SG, breakfast sausage is distinctively seasoned, primarily with black pepper and sage, some sugar and other spices that vary by recipe.

It is a very pleasant sausage.

I'm really hungry right now. My stomach has been in an uproar since my MIL arrived and it is still not right. I just ate a bunch of pickled beets and smoked mackerel. (It is dinner)

pretty much. breakfast sausage links here are the closest to British Bangers (skinny ones), but the the meat is more coarse and "meaty" and more seasoned.

casserole here means pretty much anything baked in a casserole dish. For example, Green Bean casserole is basically mushroom soup poured over fried onions and green beans and baked for a while..... they don't really make anything like what we'd call casserole here -at least I've never come across it.

have it with fruit like cantelope slices or grapes or oranges. very good, filling and rich.
Scuse me, but are you suggesting eating fruit with sausage meat? And if so, would that be with or without Maple Syrup?

Remember to stir it a lot and keep the heat down or it will burn. It may take a few rounds before you get the hang of it. I suppose there's directions on the can.

Glatt, steel cuts the best - I can't eat regular anymore. Because its such a pain to make, I usually just make up a big batch and keep it in the fridge. In the morning I just heat some up in the microwave.

Today I am breaking my fast with several large mugs of strong coffee, two cigarettes and a slightly more ... aromatic smoke to finish.

I'm doing the liver cleansing diet. I've actually gotten to really like the food on it again.

It's part of my whole change of lifestyle. During the bit of a while since Max was born, I've become very unhealthy, mostly thanks to the post natal depression, but I'm feeling so much better these days. In fact, I feel like a whole different person, and it's good.

So anyway, getting my body to match my mind is my biggest challenge at the moment, but it's going ok. Slowly but surely I'm getting there.
