Breakfast today

Mrs. Jim called this cooking breakfast. That isn't a kalache. It is a free blueberry scone from the Kroger Bakery. Free because it was in an open box with the cookies for the kids. I asked Mrs. Jim if she ate one in the store too, she said no, just this one to take home.
Then how did she cook it if it came from the Kroger Bakery? She heated it in the microwave, of course, and then sliced it into four pieces! Wow!
Now yesterday she did a whole lot more work. She made fried (in my diet eating plan butter substitute) eggs with red and yellow peppers and sausage, and western hash browns. Also toast and jelly and some fruit. But no picture. It sure was pretty, I just didn't do the photo.
Does Jim ever cook? Yes, he generally makes the noon meal. It is light, usually a sandwich or a Lean Pocket. That will be embellished with cottage cheese, chips, a salad, or what ever else is handy.
Don't tell his cardiologist, but he makes good hot dogs too. Just about always a little melted cheese and then whatever is open besides, like hot dog chili or sauerkraut. Those are in place of the sandwich. Chili and pizza are Jim's specialties.
Tonight is special, no cooking for either of us. We are eating at our Yacht Club (link 1) with some friends. It is fried chicken and fried catfish night at the buffet (menu link)**. Reservations are for six P.M.
Our friends have a summer place (a large ranch) at Telluride, Colorado. They go there in the middle of May and will return around October 15. We can use their pool here while they are gone.
Right now Mrs. Jim is in the process of manrinating and roasting eight pork loins, each is a half loin, weighing between five and six pounds. They will get stuck in her mother's freezer until next week. Then they go for her family reunion in North Louisiana.
Ken Hoffman (link) today said:
•Another sign of an improving economy: Tuesday night I was leaving Minute Maid Park when a Houston outdoorsman (homeless guy) asked, "You got a few dollars you can give me?"A few dollars?
I always wish, but never have done it, that I would have given some of these people a hamburger, maybe a MacDonalds double cheeseburger.

Health check--blood pressure/heart rate 124/64/76 . . . . 11:55 A.M.
