Ok, we get up,and we want to eat, or the kids do...at any rate, something easy and fast is on the menu... Think simple and easy dishes of 1 pot/pan types...Like rice, oatmeal, and now I'm going into areas I know that most of you know a LOT more about than I ever will..Grits, cornmeal mush, malto meal? Oh boy! I remember so many fast dishes we made as kids, way back ( when dinosaurs roamed the earth they tell me!) Not counting all the cinnamon toast...it's all about a slam dunk, down and dirty, stick with ya all day long, type of breakfasts. Some people like rice with butter, some like it with raisins, some prefer it with cinnamon and sugar. I've had it all and even with homemade gravy over it and it was GOOD! Oatmeal, the same thing: with butter, with milk with suagr and with cinnamon. I have had grits with butter and gravy ( don't ask me my grandmother was Irish!) Maybe she was from the "south side"? I have had cornmeal mush with butter, with sugar, and fried in a pan like pancakes, or in the regular cornmeal squares...dipped in a glass of cold milk or even better buttermilk...(Good God, I am old!) But you get the idea. A fast and easy, 1 shot cooking deal that everyone can eat. Not to mention all the newest quickie breakfast drinks and mixes out there today...You have an enormous variety of choices for nearly everyone. If it comes down to a "cold" breakfast, "Tang" or any mix with some powdered/canned milk, and a couple of "pop tarts" will get ya through. Not the best mind you, but hey.... it's all about SURVIVAL...right?
