Shredded wheat and eggs, and a mandarin orange

[OPMF: Other People’s Mom Food]

I’m home! After two weeks of loving-but-hard bedside duty for a beloved family member who has died, I am in my own home, making my own food for myself and James.

My first thought for breakfast was shredded wheat and eggs. Weird, I know, but hear me out, because if you like toast and eggs, or matzo brei, I think you’ll like this. In fact, when James first described it to me, I thought it was more of a brei-like thing, and I made it all wrong the first time. Kind of like shredded-wheat pancakes. This is a different thing altogether.

James doesn’t know where this food came from originally, but he grew up with it, and when we were new, he showed me how to make it. It’s become, hands down, my favorite breakfast.

First, crumble up two of those big shredded-wheat bricks per person into a bowl. James likes to use Barbara’s brand, because they’re round, so there are no sharp corners to ruin the texture of the thing. Add a pat of butter to the shredded wheat and set it aside (sometimes I obviate the need for the pat of butter by cooking the eggs in extra butter and pouring that over in the mixing step). Next, cook two eggs per person over-easy (or to your liking). Then place the eggs on top of the shredded wheat and use a fork to mash, mash, mash everything together. The yolk will coat the shredded wheat, and the little bits of cooked egg white will stud the whole mixture. Salt and pepper to taste, and you’re done.

Now, I’m not going to argue with you when you say it’s weird, but taste it. It may surprise you, as it did me.

Fill up the boxes with participants. The game is one of chance and does not require any strategy or science, therefore the players should choose the boxes that feel are lucky for them. Fill cheap jerseys up the entire board if possible; empty boxes mean there is a chance that there will be no winner. You can even turn the game into a fundraiser; sell a raffle ticket for each box, which can be turned in for a prize for the person who chooses the winning box.How Batting Correlates to Earning cheap oakley sunglasses MoneyWhen I went over the hitting statistics and the money players earned at each position there is definitely a correlation between hitting ability and salary. No surprise. Players historically are paid ray ban sunglasses for their ability to hit a baseball well. The difference in earnings between someone getting 10 RBI’s (runs batted in) a year and 40 RBI’s per year adds up to millions, even tens of millions of dollars.1:30 pm Realizing we could not purchase ray bans sale any memorabilia until about 3:00pm, we elected to go to McFaddens to visit the famous restaurant that resides at the base of Citizen’s Bank (where the MLB Phillies play). Here we met and Facebook friend ed a family from North Dakota who was there to support the college hockey team. Dressed in all bright green University of North Dakota colors were this particular family has made it an annual trip to go to hockey jerseys each frozen four game a tradition that has been in place for several years. We also met a group of motorcycle visitors from Canada. As we spoke to the Canadiens, we realized that they were actually Flyer fans.2. Green, WR, Cincinnati Bengals: One of the top wide receivers in the league with prototype size who has produced over 1,000 receiving yards receiving every year in the league. Green is going to be looking to be paid at the top of the wide receiver market (currently approximately $16 million per year) in both average per year and guaranteed money. The Bengals do not guarantee money outside of a signing bonus, so this is going to create a potential pitfall that will only be able to be worked around with a huge signing bonus (think $20 million+), followed up with a roster bonus in the second year for approximately another $10 million. The fact that Green will be looking to get maximum money will create issues in this deal getting done. I do not expect this deal to be concluded any earlier than next offseason. Green potentially could play out his contract and get tagged by the cheap football jerseys Bengals after next year.We’re going to start off with the 2.5 weights just to get our muscles warmed up. I want you to engage those abs keeping the elbows in by your side. And you’re going to lift cheap oakleys and pulse. Up and up for 10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1. Good now open up those shoulders and we’re going to push up and right back down, engaging the upper back, the shoulders, and the biceps as well.

  2. What a great breakfast idea! I’ve tried it twice and it’s becoming a once a week addition to my breakfast rotation! We do a monthly “Thank You Blog World” post over on our site, and I mention you today :-) Thanks for the inspiration!
