Had Me A Blue Spell Today

My friend Jimmy was playing old sad love songs from his country music collection today — his “Massive” collection, I should say and as I was listening, my mind went back to days gone by and I started thinking about my wife and my parents … and my dog … and all the good times that will never be again … and I got very sad and began to silently cry. I had to wait until the tears stopped flowing before I could administer my glaucoma drops. Can you say, “Pity Party?” I guess that despite all my exterior bravado, I am still a kind of wimp after all .. because men are not supposed to cry, are they?

We had macaroni with hamburger and spaghetti sauce for lunch today … (“Johnny Marzetti”) and it was delicious. Marzetti and toasted Italian bread. Yummy!

I discovered something called the “Blue Zone” diet today …. a diet that is supposed to help people live to be a Hundred years old ….I looked into it … I am not sure I could stomach that diet on a daily basis … It is all about grains and fruits and vegetables and tofu and all that kind of stuff that makes up a lot of other eccentric diets … diets like the Mediterranean diet … and a few others. I guess that I am going to remain a traditional American diet lover for the rest of my 120 years. (The Bible says that Humans are designed to live to be at least 120 years old.).

But if you would like to check the “Blue Zone” diet out for yourself, here is a link you might find interesting: https://www.everydayhealth.com/diet-nutrition/a-complete-blue-zones-diet-food-list-and-meal-plan/

About now I am starting to think about some good old country biscuits and sausage gravy with fried potatoes on the side.

People Raising Chickens To Beat Rising Egg Prices
That is one idea to beat the price of eggs these days … raise your own damned chickens. But I am wondering, with the price of chicken feed and the time and effort required to care for the birds, “Is it really worth all the hassle?” My idea to get the price of eggs under control is for the American People just to boycott the damned things and tell the egg producers, “Bring down the price of eggs or stick them in your ass!” There are things that can be substituted for eggs and here are at least 13 of them — https://www.healthline.com/nutrition/egg-substitutes
I say “Hit the greedy assholes in the pocketbook. It worked on coffee a few years ago and beef too! When the People get mad enough and start the boycotts, the greed mongers will crap their pants and do the right thing. Would it be such a bad thing if there were no eggs on the markets at all? Human Beings are very adaptable and I am sure they can find a way to do without eggs if it comes down to it.

Opinion By The Blog Author

Has the high price of eggs got you going a little cross-eyed? Here are a few ways you might find helpful to cope with the fucking you subject yourself to when you try to buy eggs in today’s greed-driven inflation.

First off, you have the option of telling whoever is selling you the eggs at a shitty price to stick them in their ass and look for something else or go somewhere else … like to a local farm …to see if someone out there is honest enough to let you have some eggs for a decent price. (I would not suggest asking a Republican, however.)

Here are more suggestions:

Eggs are one of the most important staples in many households around the world. Unfortunately, the prices of eggs have been through the roof lately, making it a struggle for many families to afford them. This can be especially difficult for those living on a tight budget. However, there are several things you can do to cope with the soaring prices of eggs. Here are a few tips to help you out:

1. Buy in Bulk: Buying eggs in large quantities can be a great way to save money. Look for deals at your local grocery store or online and buy as many eggs as you can afford. This will help you save money in the long run.

2. Look for Alternatives: If you’re looking for ways to get the same nutrition without breaking the bank, consider alternatives such as tofu and tempeh. Both are high in protein and low in cost, making them great alternatives to eggs.

3. Make the Most of What You Have: If you’re already in possession of some eggs, try to make the most of them. Find creative recipes that use eggs and make sure not to waste any of them.

4. Stock Up When Prices Are Low: Keep an eye out for sales and discounts on eggs. If you see prices dropping, stock up and freeze them for later use. This will ensure you always have eggs on hand, even when prices are high. These are just a few tips to help you cope with the soaring prices of eggs. With some planning and creativity, you can make sure your family has access to this important staple without breaking the bank.

.5. You might consider asking your bank for a loan so that you can buy a few eggs. The way things are going, you can probably get by with an egg loan in the amount of around Fifteen Hundred dollars.

How About Vegetables For Breakfast?

Read my medical disclaimer before you proceed:

My breakfast this morning was two carrots, a large onion, and a large white potato all prepared in a steamer with some butter and salt added. Of course I had my morning coffee too… with a tablespoon of blackstrap molasses stirred in.

Why vegetables for breakfast?

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and it should be nutritious, energizing, and satisfying.

While traditionally, breakfast foods like eggs, bacon, and pancakes have been the go-to choices for many, there are actually plenty of delicious and nutritious ways to incorporate vegetables into your breakfast.

Vegetables are a great way to start your day off right. They provide essential vitamins and minerals, help to keep you full until lunch, and can be incredibly tasty. Whether you’re looking for a savory breakfast or something sweet, there are a variety of ways to incorporate vegetables into your morning meal.

For a savory breakfast, consider whipping up a vegetable omelet. Start by sautéing onions, peppers, mushrooms, and spinach in a pan. Once cooked, add them to beaten eggs and cook until the omelet is set. Serve with some toast or a piece of fruit and you’ve got a nutritious and delicious breakfast.

If you’re looking for something sweet, try baking a veggie-packed frittata. Start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees. Place a variety of vegetables, such as broccoli, asparagus, and peppers, into a greased baking dish. Pour beaten eggs over the veggies, sprinkle with cheese, and bake for 25 minutes or until the eggs are set. Serve with some toast or a piece of fruit for a well-rounded breakfast.

Vegetables can also be added to smoothies for a quick and easy breakfast. Try adding spinach, carrots, or beets for a nutrient-packed smoothie. You can also add some nuts, seeds, or nut butter for an added boost of protein.

Vegetables don’t have to be boring or tasteless. Incorporate them into your breakfast to start your day off right with a nutritious and delicious meal. I often have nothing but steamed, baked or boiled vegetables for my own breakfasts.
