Isn't there a Grimm Brothers fairy tale about you?

LOL...actually he loved it. It was quick, easy and filling. This is a kid that would eat everything whether he liked it or not. His younger brother is another story. Getting him to eat breakfast at all is challenging. He barely gets up early enough to catch the bus.

My kid makes his own breakfast a lot. Sometimes it is peanut butter pickle sandwiches.

I'd had that very thing out for brunch yesterday morning, and leftovers for breakfast today. Believe it or not, it wasn't as sickeningly sweet at it sounds...but definitely srsly yummy.

It's just a nicer mouthful with more texture. You feel you're really eating something.
SG, My G-son got some... now how to cook it ?
Do you (or anyone else) have a easy recipe to start with ?

toast it lightly in a cast iron pan. cook it like rice. You can add butter if that's your thing, or cook it in stock if you are into that, or just water with a pinch of salt.
ratio of quinoa to liquid is appx 1:1.5

you can dice veggies into it, for breakfast, you can mince some ham or crumble bacon into it (to help offset the purported cardiovascular benefits of Quinoa) and then scramble an egg and mix the bacon, scrambled egg, and cooked quinoa together, season.

We had a work breakfast meeting, at a place called The Golden Nugget. I thought it might be like The Golden Corral (really, anything golden gives me pause) but it was really nice. The director picked up all our checks!

I had bacon and eggs over medium and (I'm so ashamed) PANCAKES. And lots of coffee.

I haven't been there in many many years. The whole "Corral" thing kind of fits, with what I saw there. You take the word "golden" and add "corral" to it, it doesn't say "good" to me.

Ours hasn't had the best rep. I don't even know for sure if it's still in the neighboring town.

We used to have Dale's Smorgasbord. Dale's Golden Rule: Take all you want, but eat all you take.

My brother and his high school football buddies LOVED that place.

"All you can eat, doesn't mean you should" was a funny observation by some forgettable comic
