Mrs. 1-iron has eaten All-Bran cereal EVERY FREAKIN’ DAY OF HER LIFE FOR OVER 30 YEARS. Talk about regular.[:) I can’t stand it, I try to get her to change, but no luck. And if we go out to eat she always gets a salad – nothing else.
I eat oatmeal for breakfast everyday throughout the year, even when it’s hot weather. My only break in that is Saturday mornings at Kathy’s Diner where I meet up with friends and indulge in some hashbrowns and a side of sausage patties.
first, i love the screenname "retired & glad"!!! oh, how i wish! what i wouldn’t give to be retired. unfortunately, i just got my first real job, so i’ve got about 30 years to go….
now, what i eat….i bring the same lunch every day to work: goldfish crackers, diced peaches, a capri sun and something microwavable (chef boyardee raviolis, hormel chicken and dumplings). i eat this because all of it is pre-packaged and i can simply throw it in a bag and go.
i get on kicks as well. i was obsessed with pad thai for a few months. latley, it’s been garlic sauce from this middle-easter restaurant. it’s very potent….it would keep vampires away for days!
i also snack regularly on gardettos or chex mix after work and before dinner.
i kinda eat like crap.
Bananas. When I can’t have a sit-down breakfast, I scarf a banana at my desk at work and I’m usually set until lunch.
I eat some kind of citrus fruit everyday. Fortunately, here in SOuth Louisiana, the winter months mean fresh, locally grown fruit. Satsumas, navel oranges, tangerines, grapefruits, lemons.[:p]
I think I also end up eating tomatoes in one form or another everyday.
I probably eat some type of cheese every day !!! [:p]
I luuuuuuuuuuuuuuuv cheese !![:D]
NO, I’m not a mouse !!!
I don’t always eat breakfast, and sometimes when I do I vary it up a bit, but for many years now I’ve generally had the same basic thing. A cup of Stonyfield yogurt, lemon or plain, nonfat or lowfat, with fruit and grape nuts mixed in (about a cup of fruit and 1/4 cup of grape nuts, but I don’t really keep track.) The fruit is most often chunks of pineapple, fresh when I have it, or canned. Grapes are good too, mandarin oranges slices as well. I was very annoyed when Stonyfield recently shrunk the size of their single serving packages of yogurt – it sent my system out of whack.
I really do enjoy it – there’s enough opportunity to vary things up, and the whole combination just has a good, fresh, clean taste.
Every now and then I make my own graham nuts and use them instead of the grape nuts. They’re tastier, but don’t have the same crunch.
I can pretty much eat chicken every day. No problem.
I go on strange binges where I only want to eat artichokes or BLTs or corn flakes. My last one was macaroni and cheese…from soul food restaurants only. That one was inconvenient. I have a pretty varied diet, but I don’t ever get tired of french bread, bananas, peanut butter and cereal.
retired & glad
I’m a type 2 diabetic. I try to lean toward low carb foods to keep the sugar steady. Most mornings for breakfast I have a slice of whole grain toast, slathered generously with smoked salmon [combined with ricotta cheese, lemon juice & worchestershire sauce [:p]], Ceylon tea, and a piece of fruit. I sometimes vary the routine by using Snofrisk cheese rather than the salmon blend. This gives me a nice lo carb start on the day. My wife can’t understand how I can eat this every day and not be sick of it but I love it and look forward to it. Do you have any foods you eat on a daily, or at least regular basis and still really love?
Dutch Babies are big in Seattle. When I visit my daugher we go for them as often as possible. There,they make them on the botom of a skillet so they come out saucer shaped with a little rim which they fill with powdered sugar and lemon juice. Yum!
Grew up having mashed potatoes at least once every day. Closest to every day consumption now would be saltine crackers and some sort of a piece of cheese.
Today I am having real good regular chow!
I am baking a pork shoulder marinated with orange marmalade, dark syrup, sliced Dole pineapple with cherries.
Collard greens with bacon and bacon grease, minced fresh garlic, grated Bermuda red onions, button mushrooms with the stems cooked in bacon grease and soul food seasoning.
Yams cooked in dark syrup, real slighly salted butter, lime juice, cinnamon, cut up Dole pineapple and orange marmalade.
Tennessee cornbread with chopped up onions, corn, pimento and jalapenos cooked in a red hot pan at 425 to put a strong crust on it.
That is real regular chow[:)][:)][:)] Unfortunately I cnnot eat all of it due to the Atkins thing[:(][:(][:(][:(]

Sometimes I get an overpowering craving for some fresh pears and smoked gouda cheese.
You are right she is a keeper. And the Dutch babie is known by many names. and they taste good whatever you call them.[:D][:D]
Dutch Babies are sometimes called German Pancakes. I like them with apples cooked inside.
