I missed friday. I am a little behind on posts but i cant waste these pics!
and im about to redeem my mother.
The morning after my rib and potato disaster, i awoke and did Day one of Couch to 5K. in the rain. I came back wet from sweat and rain (and really proud of myself) to the smell of fried eggs.
My mother might not be the most amazing pancake chef… but she sure does know how to fry and egg. All the eggs for the exception of one that broke came out over medium… and poor dad always get stuck with the ugly one.
I had to be the odd ball and opt for a different kind of egg. I packed my grits with me for my mini vacay and was dying to have a soft boiled egg on top of my grits for a hearty after workout breakfast. (i love working out on an empty stomach…the next meal is like a reward)
I splurged and had a glass of orange juice with my grits. I almost hate orange juice but this was a fresh squeezed kind. REALLY pulpy and delicious.
Wish my eggs were a little softer. But it was still delicious. And while eating with everyone at the dining table i discovered that my late aunt used to LOVE grits and eggs. No one else in the fam (that i know of) like grits.. so thanks tia for the food love.
At lunch I had 4 cups of iceberg lettuce with shredded red cabbage and carrots with a Fat free ranch. YUM. (could have used some protein though)
got hungry and went for my new jar of wasabi peas.
I love these things. Its so hard for me to keep a jar of this size around. I have to pour a handful and put the jar away….id otherwise eat the whole thing.

I love, love eggs and grits! Either soft boiled or fried … I'd take either! They all look amazing and so satisfying. I should have had this instead of cold cereal today!
Oh My, I have been on an egg kick lately. I like them both boiled and over medium. I wanted an egg for breakyfast this morn, but we're all out. Guess I got to hit the grocery store later.

I like grits too. I seriously don't know anyone else that likes them! And we will totally rock week two of C25K. If you want, we should email each other motivation! email@example.com

I had Cream of Wheat today with a spoonful of Apricot Simply Fruit dropped in..it was sooo good! I like the idea of eggs on top of grits, that's cool 🙂
Eggy delights galore…..
I love hard boiled eggs, I don't think I've ever had soft boiled (at least not on purpose!). I think adding them to the grits sounds like a good combo!
Your eggs and grits look great! I must try that! I can't have those soy beans around either!
Oh grits are the best! I love southern-style breakfasts. 🙂

Mmmm, I adore grits! They look so beautiful with the soft-boiled egg on top…
I've never had grits before – must try them one day. OK, they are now on my list. I tend to have bacon and eggs for breakfast on a Saturday and make pancakes on a Sunday. My boys just love my pancakes. They tell me they are better than McDonalds!
mmm those eggs on the grits look so good! then again I have never had fgrits before! but they still look delish!
its like mels diner going on over here – "Mel kiss my grits" you may not remember that television show
I love those wasabi covered peas! They're the best snack!
Great job on the C25k!

Eggs & grits … yummy!!
I used to love working out on an empty stomach in the morning as well. It was the ideal time. ANd then I REALLY deserved breakfast when I got home. Now I have to get up way to early for any of that :/Love those eggs and grits! Looks like the perfect reward.
Wow! You know I had never thought to do grits and soft boiled eggs! How strange, and I live in the south. Well, ok. FL. That really isn't the South. Usually, like today, I do honey on my grits. but I also like bacon bits and salt and pepper. Will definitely have to try that.Love the Wasabi Peas too. Big time fav of mine. I picked some up from some Amish families when I was last in North Carolina that were stellar.Kudos to you on the 5k. I got to get back out on the roads myself.
