    I made some pancakes with banana and blueberries this morning. I used a little maple syrup for topping. It was so good I almost licked the plate.

    A bowl of brown & white quinoa & tofu scramble topped with green onions and hot sauce, Dave Killer's bread toasted with avocado, a banana dipped in crushed walnuts, almonds, and flax seeds, and a clementine, and a cup of Earl Grey tea.

    i bought some Ezekials English muffins the other day. Had never had them before. I have been toasting them with Chao slices and tomato. They are sold in my grocer's frozen sections which I think says something good about them. but they are not pre-sliced. So you either have to defrost them, slice them and then re-freeze them (which I didn't do), or put them in the toaster oven till they can be sliced and then toast them. I did that a few times then i got tired of the process and just put them in the frig. I may not get them again. I know Trader Joe's has a good Enlglish muffin. I may even buy some vegan sausage patties and try making sausage McMuffins.

    You should. Also, try some from New Hampshire.
    Supposedly they have different tastes. and just like wine they vary from year to year.
    I can't tell the difference, but I have never had a back-to-back taste test. I guess in Vermont, New Hampshire, and Quebec they have maple syrup tasting rooms. I wonder if they have pancakes

    Oh, BTW, I just checked and my Trader Joe's Brand Maple syrup is made in Canada. :eek:

    I went through a maple syrup farm tour once with my elementary school. I was probably about 8-9 years old. They severed us a generous taste of the maple syrup over a snow cone. It was delicious! No pancakes though ;)

    I like both! There happened to be a sale on Dave's - the thin sliced loaf. It doesn't take much bread to fill me up :)

    Breakfast was a gruelling affair that left me toiling in the kitchen for a whole 5 minutes.



    First I added pitted dates, breaking up to make sure no pits.
    Then I added water, enough to cover and then some, and turned on stove. This softens the dates.
    While heating, I added some rolled oats to my blender and blended into flour, and adding it to pot with dates.
    After a few minutes of cooking I added the entire contents of the pot to the blender and blended into a nice homogeneous consistency.
    Then added frozen strawberries and blueberries and dunked them in it for quick defrost.

    It was quite delicious. I only rarely make oatmeal. I think I might make a chocolate flavored one next time.

    Breakfast was wholewheat toast with lowered sodium Vegemite, tofu, raw spinach and cucumber

    I like spinach and I like Vegemite but combined don’t mix well and made it a bit unpalatable. I can’t see myself using it with spinach again. Still, I am full and it’s past lunch time.
