Saturday morning we decided to screw the refrigerator guys let’s just go check out if we could buy one and get it delivered before we get it repaired. The Labor Day sales were good to us so we decided to get a new one because it was twice the cost of the repair of our 11 yr old fridge. Ill try to replace the compressor and keep it in the garage for storage.

Fried two eggs for each sandwich. Broiled sourdough bread with American cheese and had some extra cherry tomatoes so broke them down in a medium heated skillet until they became a paste. Also had some extra goat cheese and given we are living out of coolers, we used it up.

Breakfast sometimes requires the easiest thing possible given the time constraints of the day. Going fast is where I tend to get into trouble and turn to cereals, bagels, muffins, or even drive thrus. Home made granola is super easy to make and while it does contain oats and sugar, it’s a better bad option for breakfast or even a snack. Enjoy it plain, with milk or yogurt. This recipe is what I call a “base” recipe that can be built upon with your favorites (coconut, seeds, chia, raisins, peanut butter, curry, chili powder etc)
