Re: I blame you!
 
When I was going to fire school, (it was an evening class), the instructors had had a slow day at the firehouse and engaged in a pickled egg eating contest. All had consumed between 10-15 eggs that afternoon. We couln't spend much time in the classroom - we had to bail and do a ladder practical outside. http://www.freesmileys.org/smileys/smiley-fart001.gif http://www.freesmileys.org/smileys/smiley-fart005.gif http://www.freesmileys.org/smileys/smiley-fart006.gif

Curried eggs on toast is one of my all-time favorite comfort foods. Great for breakfast.

Bob Swenson started a thread here about a million years ago, looking for egg recipes. I'm sure it wouldn't be hard to find.


Cholesterol sadly (predictably) is through the roof... but I'm blamin' the cheese. :D

My grandfather's favorite meal was breakfast, scrambled eggs with bacon bits (real bacon) and a side of fatback. Eggs bartered from neighbors.

At dinner, my grandmother would ask if he wanted pie or cake for dessert. He'd say, "I recon I'll have one of each"

He married her when he was 49 and she was 18. He died of grief the year after she died. He was over 100 then. It could be argued that high cholesterol got her but it never seemed to have an affect on him.

Wow on all counts, Michael. A 30 year age difference!?! And he outlived her. He must have been quite a character. What a wonderful story.

Hmmm, shades of my Fathers second marriage to my Step-Mom.
I'm not that much younger than her...Used to get ALL kinds of looks when the 3 of us went out back when I was a teenager. [They married right before I was in 10th grade] I looked too old for her to be my Mother, She looked too young to have had me, and no one was sure how my Dad fit into all of this... :rofl::rofl::rofl:
Nowdays if it's just the three of us out shopping, everyone thinks we're married to each other, and they wonder which one of us brought our older parent with them....Poking
Actually more fun than when I was a teenager and they were newlyweds

My father-in-law is a true creature of habit. He has had two eggs (over easy) with two strips of bacon for breakfast every day that I have known him (forty-five years). He has also smoked three (very nasty) cigars every one of those days. He is now ninety-one, and has never had a single health issue that I know of (although he is not doing that well lately, mostly mental).

I have a similar situation. I'm three years older than my wife, but I look so good I have to tell everyone she's my mother. :D
