Breakfast for Supper

Tonight I had a hankering for some of the mulberries in the freezer. We have some of the biggest mulberry trees around, and I just had the notion to have myself some tonight. I made some french toast with mulberries, garlic and onion cheese omelets, and bacon for supper.

Jacob wasn't too thrilled when I told him I was fixing to have breakfast for supper, but once he smellt that bacon frying, he didn't seem to mind. My word, I think I smacked his hand at least a half dozen times as he tried to sneak himself pieces of cooked bacon off the plate. My stars, he's like a child sometimes.

The kids couldn't believe it when they found out about breakfast for supper. I've never seen Sarah Jo help set a table so fast. Honestly, I think it was the smell of bacon that did it to the kids too. There is just something about the smell of cooking bacon that brings a family together, and feels comfortable, y'know?

Well, it certainly did rile the children up anyway. We haven't had this much chitter-chatter at the supper table in I don't know how long. The funniest is when Lora Lee announced, "It must be upside down day!" We all hooped and hollered over that! Malon said that since we had breakfast for supper tonight, we ought to go ahead and have chicken fried steak and potatoes and gravy tomorrow morning for breakfast! Ha-ha!

It's hard, but sometimes during the winter I start to feel myself get down or a little depressed. I know it's just the winter blues, so a little mix-up every now and again is good, I dare say. And though everyone seemed to jump all over the bacon, for me, my little piece of heaven was having those berries with a little cream over my toast. It was just the pick-me-up I needed.

Breakfast for supper. Now that is a good idea!

God Bless,

I love, love, love to have breakfast for dinner. My family especially loves when we have french toast. I like to put on a coconut syrup and crushed pineapple. It is like having pina colada french toast. YUM!

I love mulberries. We picked a bunch this summer.

This post made me hungry, and it made me wonder if you have the recipe for beef and noodles over mashed potatoes. Evidently it is an Indiana thing, as I can't find it here, only at Amish Acres and Essenhaus, and my high school cafeteria 12 years ago. Being the good Amish wife that you are- you surely know one right? Please share your wisdom?

Here's my recipe for beef and noodles. Brown 1 lb.cubed beef then add can of beef broth and bring to boil. Add four cups water and four cups uncooked egg noodles. Bring to boil and simmer on low for 20 min. Add salt and pepper. Let sit for noodles to absorb more flavor then serve over mashed potatoes. If you like onions add that to step one when browning the beef.
