We were suppose to have ribs last night but I forgot to lay them out to thaw in time. We buy riblets in a case for $1 a pound. So you have to thaw them well as they are frozen in a big lump. With this not the case, I needed a plan and QUICK! It was 4:00pm, after all.
I thought of spaghetti but knew the family wasn't in the mood for pasta. "How about a breakfast supper?", I asked self. Self answered, "Yep and you know you like cooking big so why not think ahead and cook some for the morning." EUREKA! Why not for a FEW mornings.
So, the flour slinging began. Bethany and Brittany fried bacon. I made up two batches of muffins (lemon poppy seed, blueberry and chocolate chocolate chip). I made homemade biscuits. I made a huge skillet of sausage gravy. I fried eggs. Brittany cooked a pot of grits. We feasted. It was good and set like a rock.
The cost for the full meal was $15.50. This is for one supper and three breakfasts (at least).
I now have leftovers in the fridge for at least three mornings of breakfast. This morning I took out the leftover biscuits and gravy. I heated up hubby's breakfast in a bowl and served with a kiss and a smile. He returned a kiss and a smile. All were happy. "I see this happening more often", says wife. "Okay", says husband.
