MY DAY: Scrambled Eggs… with brains

Yesterday, I read a blog posted by my friend, Jeff Carter, where he listed things that made him happy.  One line: “scrambled eggs always taste better with cheese.”

This morning, I made scrambled eggs, added mild cheddar, and am pleased with the results.  Yes, they did add a measure of happiness to my morning.

Sunday evenings, on the second floor of the White House’s West Hall, Mrs. Roosevelt would stand at the head of the table with a chafing dish, making scrambled eggs.  Lining the sides of the table was an assortment of personalities – people who would offer ideas on topics she proposed.

Mrs. Roosevelt began calling these Sunday evening White House dinners, “Scrambled Eggs with Brains.”

Since I was doing a great deal of thinking this morning while working and eating my scrambled eggs, I believe I can also call my breakfast, “scrambled eggs with brains.”

    You know, I’m eating my homemade apple chips and just threw up a little bit in my mouth. Mostly cuz dad LOVES brains and eggs. The real brains. Hasn’t had them cuz Grandma was the only one who would make them for him. I will make him oyster stew, but not that. Ever.
