Breakfast isn’t just for mornings

Breakfast at my house is a bowl of cereal or a piece of toast. I don’t like to eat much in the mornings, so I like to cook a hearty breakfast for our evening meal every once in a while. – Pat

FOOD FACTS

• Never immerse mushrooms in a pan of cold water when cleaning, since they will absorb to much water. This will also make it more difficult to cook them, without losing flavor.

• Keep unbroken eggs in a covered bowl because the shells are porous and will absorb odors as well as lose moisture. The refrigerator shelf life of an egg is approximately 10-14 days.
