Friday Food. January 2021.

Standard

I really enjoyed my monthly series of Inspire and Friday Food that appeared all through 2020, and I’m planning on continuing it into this year. Inspire will return next week as this week was too full of news to focus on it, although I did find some things in the past week to be inspired about.

Breakfast Casserole. (c)2021

This was a layered breakfast casserole I had at Cracker Barrel. The restaurant is back to a limited menu due to the uptick of covid cases but this is seriously easy to make at home, either from scratch or with a few boxed ingredients.

When I first saw it, I thought it was a too small portion, but its looks are deceiving – it was hot, filling, and the tastes were perfectly balanced.

It is simple, easy, and delicious and while I haven’t tried this at home myself, I have no doubt that I could put it together in short order.

The layers from bottom to top are:

    • Hashbrown Casserole base
    • Melted Colby cheese
    • Scrambled eggs
    • Bacon
    • Diced tomatoes
    • Crispy fried onions
    • Scallions
    • Buttermilk biscuit with butter and/or jam on the side

The breakfast of champions. Enjoy it and the beginning of this new year that I’m going to choose to look on with potential and optimism despite recent setbacks.

Peaches for Me, Peaches for You

Getting groceries. Took a detour in produce.

Peaches have never tasted so good!

The kind you can smell before you pick it up, with just enough give in the skin to know it’s that perfectly ripe and juicy.

They were so good and I was so excited about the Georgia Senate seats I ate two.

I have no regrets.

I think some may have regrets:

And just a quick reminder as we celebrate democracy:
