The Things People Say

Lately, it seems as though I have been going through a lot more leftovers than normal, which is strange, because I don’t remember cooking all that many things that would leave a lot of leftovers.  But, apparently, I did.  I have also been making more things that I have already presented you with, and I don’t want to “bore” you the same old, same old.  🙂  Also, Larry is fighting some kind of bug, so he does not have much of an appetite at the moment either, which means i am not coking as much.  NO, it is NOT the coronavirus or COVID19.   So, I will leave you with some breakfast related quotes today instead.


Popcorn for breakfast!  Why not?  It’s a grain, like grits, but with high esteem.

Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a pauper.

~ Adelle Davis, American author and nutrionist~


Life expectancy would grow by leaps and bounds if green vegetables smelled as good as bacon.

~ Doug Larson, American journalist ~


Only dull people are brilliant at breakfast.

~ Oscar Wilde, Author ~


A recipe has no soul.  You, as the cook, must bring the soul to the recipe.

I have worked in the restaurant and catering industry for over 35 years. I attended 2 culinary schools in Southern California, and have a degree in culinary arts from the Southern California School of Culinary Arts, as well as a few other degrees in other areas. I love to cook and I love to feed people.

  1. I roast a ton of vegetables. While I can’t make them smell as good as bacon, I have learned that tossing them in olive oil, then sprinkling them generously with kosher salt, garlic, and truffle dust is a quick way to make vegetables (and your whole house) smell like heaven.

    1. Thank you. Surprisingly, I am not really a breakfast person. But I will fix breakfast like this for visitors. 🙂

      Usually, my leftovers are dramatically changed from when they were first overs, so they are not even recognizable as the same dish. 🙂

      1. Ha. I do the something.
        Oh let’s add this and see what happens.
        Oh there’s not enough leftovers. Let’s add this . . . Now there’s enough.
        Cooking is play time. That’s why my kitchen is always a mess. I’d show you a picture, but I’m too embarrassed. :0)

    Nothing more truer has ever been said.
