    On weekends, I've gotten into the habit of making home-made 'Egg McMuffins.' Toasted English muffins from Costco, scrambled egg, and bacon.

    A geeky kitchen show on PBS called "America's Test Kitchen" featured a tip to buy cut bacon in bulk, roll each piece individually, and freeze them. It seemed like a hassle, but it's turned out to be a flash of genius. Now I don't feel like I have to "use up" a standard package of bacon before it goes bad, or thaw a whole package even when I just want a couple of strips. I just go to the freezer, snap off a couple of bacon rolls, thaw 'em in the micro, and fry 'em up.

    Man. Now I feel like having bacon for dessert.

    Bacon and peanut butter sandwich, for dessert?

    That's a good idea, for bacon. We don't have the same kind, over here. It's thick and hard and salty, so it wouldn't work. I make my own, anyway, when it's pig-killing time...and then hang it up, by the fireplace...jess gotta cut off a chunk, whenever, and by the time it gets to the end, it's so hard that the only place for it, is the soup pot.

    Never tried it, but might... since I already eat PB&J almost every day. I've heard of it, and frankly, there are much stranger combinations out there.

    Didn't Elvis like that pairing? Fried all together, even? Or was that peanut butter and banana?

    ETA: Here's a recipe for fried peanut butter, banana, and bacon sandwiches, called, of course, "The Elvis."

    Deja vu, Helen!

    Kilinahe and I have basically been having our bacon-and-egg toasted English muffins all week. Er, though I think I settled for a brown sugar and cinnamon Pop Tart yesterday.

    Mmmmm.....Bacon: The Candy of Meats.

    Have you tried the "Cinnamon Roll" Pop-Tarts yet? Not as sweet as the classic frosted bs+c ones, so a little more manageable for the older palate.

    Yeah, but all the boulangerie here either make great bread OR great pastries - never both in the same place, for some reason. (Actually, other friends in France tell me that's the situation there as well.) Bon appetit!

    Cool Re: What's for Breakfast - Chapter 1

    If I really wanted to pig out and stupidly disregard the health hazards, it would be Portuguese sausage, four fried eggs, toast with guava jam, and two scoop rice. Oh wait. I forgot the kimchee.

    I skipped breakfast again...so all I have is a bottle of Aquafina and that Diet Coke I'm about to open in 30 seconds.

    [wonders where I'll pig out for lunch]

    I have established a rule for myself this summer: Two healthy meals per day. I have found it easiest (most days) to make breakfast one of the two. This has not always been the case, as I am often in such a rush to get to school so I can be ready for the day. The drive-throughs are just much, much too convenient and quick. Plus there's Myra, whom I've mentioned in other threads.

    However, they have opened a new Jamba Juice at the newly rebuilt Moanalua Center (formerly Moanalua Shopping Center), which is ALMOST as quick and convenient as the drive-throughs. I know the smoothies are loaded with calories, but you still need those fruits and antioxidants, so I think it's a good trade-off. I have been in love with Jamba since before it came to Hawaii, and seldom deviate from my favorite order: Orange Berry Blitz. Orange juice, blueberries (antioxidants up the wazoo, or down it, I guess), pineapple sherbert, strawberries, and ice. I've been getting the "power" size with two boosts, Vita-Boost and Fiber-Boost.

    Oh, and a Diet Pepsi.

    Helen, have you ever tried that VAULT "energy drink"? It tastes like an EXTREME Mountain Dew. Pretty good and reasonably priced, unlike most other "energy drinks".

    Ever since Red Bull took off (gross), everyone's offering some sort of "energy drink", which is all SNAKE OIL if you ask me.

    O.K. Helen, you went there TWICE in consecutive days? That's a great gig you've got!

    Any chance elaborating what they offered on the breakfast buffet line?

    I've only eating their Sunday Brunch Buffet ($20), so I'd like to know the difference in selection and price. Sunday Brunch pretty much got "da works".

    Last time I was there, I almost overflowed my little bowl with soft-serve ice cream. Talk about make "A". lol
