Yesterday’s sunrise was lovely

And was followed by the same drive to the  apple orchard for coffee and donuts as I showed the day before.  This time, I also bought apples and a jar of apple salsa. 

 

Today’s sun was very reluctant but eventually put in a brief appearance

Breakfast was an English muffin with peanut butter and banana.

Breakfast is served. And comes with a story.

Years ago, like over 38 years ago, we were living in Grand Rapids, MI, and we were on summer vacation visiting New Hampshire. I was six months pregnant with Matthew.

Passing through the town of Bethlehem, New Hampshire we noticed a "Breakfast Being Served" sign outside a beautiful old Bed and Breakfast Inn, that was also an Antique store.

Small menu, basically scrambled eggs with choice of ham, sausage or bacon and served with a basket of fresh hot Popovers.

The scrambled egg came served in little antique "Hen on a Nest" glass dishes with lid. The sausage was this wonderful homemade sage breakfast sausage with a choice of links or patties.

Breakfast was so good that we drove back another day just to have a repeat experience.

Hadn't made popovers for breakfast in years.

Served with farm fresh scrambled eggs with chopped tomato (from our garden) and bacon.

I wish someone would advocate a high carb diet.   It would be such a natural for me.

 

FWIW, I eat very high percentage of carbs. I start my day with steel-cut oats and homemade whole-wheat toast, often eat whole-grain rice/quinoa/whatever at lunch, and work through large quantities of legumes, fruits and vegetables through the day.

The key here is that my carbohydrates almost invariably come in the form of whole grains and un-processed or minimally processed produce and pulses.

This isn't a "diet" as such, just a refinement of my existing eating pattern (last year's checkup showed that my blood sugars were higher than I'd like, so I cut out my few remaining sweets and high-GI indulgences). Over the past year I've dropped 25 pounds or so (and counting) without really trying, and without more than moderate activity and exercise. As always, YMMV.

Totally good eating plan.    Mileage varies by personal tastes or cravings if you will, and genes.    We use whole grain bread and cereal, dry beans.    Very little white rice, but a fair amount of white pasta.    I consume almost no sweets, candy, pastry, etc, but DH has a sweet tooth.     My blood sugars are low, while his hover at the high end of normal.    Our weights are constant, just under 25bmi.    You can't fight genes, but we could each do a lot to lose a few pounds if motivated.    Currently, we eat what we want but pay attention to portion size.

Perfectly cooked bacon.  But it is that ham I want.

I had planned to make Moe a Nicoise Salad for dinner last night with seared Ahi Tuna. But we had rhubarb tart instead.

So I made it for him this morning.

Dressed with a vinaigrette with fresh tarragon from our garden.

@Kim Shook -- Do you soak your country ham slices to get rid of some of the salt before you cook them?

 

@Shelby -- I think I remember you talking about cooking country ham slices in the IP.  Do you cook directly in water? Soak first, or not?

Don't ask. Eat it.
