Mashed taters for breakfast????

This morn'n I'm just gonna say "have a good day an' pass the mashed taters".

Speak'n of mashed taters, many many years ago, we fried mashed taters for breakfast. Bout 4 or 6 pieces of crisp bacon, 3 or 4 eggs over easy, fresh baked biscuits.....now that's what I'm talk'n bout. Ya don't get that kind of food no more. In fact, the last mashed taters I ate, somebody was too lazy to peel 'em first. I don't do tater peels. Tater peels go in the slop bucket for the pigs. Ok Ok, somebody said tater peels was healthy, so now everbody leave the peels on an' dont give a care what they taste like.

Boy howdy, the mention of fresh baked biscuits sure do make me hungry. I used to make homemade biscuits. Many many years ago. Now I just grab a can out of the frige, pop it open an' walla, I got fresh baked biscuits.

Now we come down to the best piece of meat you can eat. Bacon!!! Everbody loves bacon. Cooked either soft or crisp, it'll make ya "oink" on every bite. Then come along, that same guy that said tater peels are good for ya. He says bacon will kill ya. Now let me see.....I ain't dead yet an' I eat bacon.

This morn'n is the beginning of yet another cold front. It's all cloudy with 89% humidity....had a little sprinkle of rain. Ain't no winds yet but the weather thingy says 17 mile a hour by noon. I can hit golf balls in them kind of winds. Tomorrow it's gonna be only 47 degs an' Tuesday it's gonna be cold all day long....67 degs. That's Brrrrrrrr weather.

Ok....I'm out of here. Ya never ever want to be late for a tee time. It just don't look good.

    1. I've done the froze biscuits, but having a RV refrigerator, there ain't no room for 'em. It's either froze biscuits or froze meats......yum yum meat.

  6. BB - Hermit Jim & I loved leftover mashed taters for breakfast! Mix in an egg to hold it together, a little more salt & pepper - potato patties! Mush better than hash brown in my opinion. Our mama did not waste anything, so we grew up thinking this was normal. Still give 'em to Hubby ever once in a while. Not too many leftovers at our house to start with!
    Yeah, another cold front - low 40s tonite - but I remember back in the 50s having to wear our winter coat over an Easter dress, so guess not much has changed after all. And then - golfn weather!! You and hubby are both ready for that!!

  7. My neighbor would take leftover mashed potatoes and mixed in an egg and fry that in patties. They were delicious. She loved to cook for me...lol... because she knew I would eat it.
