Pay It Forward Tag

Before I forget, JLI asked me about the apple butter and peach butter recipe. I have to find the peach butter recipe (long story), but here is the best recipe for apple butter and if you are brave you might want to try this Yummy Peach Salsa. When I find the Peach butter recipe, I will post it.

And now

I won a tag! And so now I get to offer you the opportunity to play.

Here is the deal :
Here's a fun blogging game...

Be one of the first three people to leave a comment on this post and you'll receive something handmade from me sometime in the next year.

But there is a catch. You have to do the same thing on your blog. And then once you get the item from me you have to comment about it on my blog!!

As for commenting something in particular, I can't think of anything to ask for other than favorite simple breakfast. I am getting kind of burned out on cold cereal, and am not really fond of ham, bacon or eggs (sausage is just nasty). I like oatmeal, but it is warming up and hot oatmeal on a day that's going to be in the 90's is just miserable.

I just recently found though that I actually like scrambled egg with a thin slice of lunch-meat ham on a half of an English muffin. Since I kind of dislike 2 out of three, I was really surprised. If I eat it every day though, I will get tired of it.

So more ideas?



  1. Ok - exempt me from the contest since I'm already getting something from the Facebook one.

    I did want to tell you about a post that is going up this afternoon on my blog - it has a great breakfast sandwich idea and shows how healthy it is for you!

    I also have a recipe for stuffed strawberries going up on the recipe blog tomorrow that would be a great breakfast idea.

  2. I realize your comments against oatmeal, but steel cut oats are a great way to go. Superior taste to regular oatmeal and the health benefits are huge. I cook up about a week's worth at a time and then reheat them in the microwave. Other than that, I'm a huge fan of toast--which if you alter the kinds of bread you use can actually be quite varied . . . sourdough, English muffin bread, rye, cinnamon toast, fruit bread . . . and it doesn't seem like you're eating the same thing every morning. One more idea is to make a large batch of muffins and then freeze them . . . 50-60 seconds in the microwave will take a muffin from frozen through to warm through.
