I'm a cereal and fruit person... but I still go to the effort of actually putting loose leaf green tea in an infuser; it simply tastes much better than teabags.

Purists will shake their heads, since I brew a mug at a time rather than a proper teapot...

Self-portrait in the morning :)

A leftover from our colonial past, a nice one.

Daniel, that article to which you directed us stated, 

"Sales of coffee pods grew by 138,324 percent between 2004 and 2014, according to data from Euromonitor."

Good grief! Don't they count the time, effort and money it takes to go to the store and buy all those pods? Not to mention the pod garbage that results!
Cary grinds our coffee every morning; he washes up after himself and he never leaves so much as a crumb in the kitchen. 
I have two slices of Dave's Killer Bread, toasted, with dollops of jams, or hummus, or peanut butter, and coffee. I clean up after myself. 

There is kind of a Zen to the routine, a flow of activity that occurs daily with a great deal of calm. Nice and quiet, peaceful, calm before the chores begin.

I often get spaces and punctuation wrong, stupid Dutch!

I avoid the prepared foodstuffs and I do little kitchenwork. Today: fruit and nut smoothie for breakfast (15 minutes work), bread and cheese for lunch (3 minutes), and a French beans, tomato, tofu and sambalmix for dinner (20 minutes). Washing up once a day costs 20 minutes. Easy enough, but perhaps not to a millenial...

For some reason, my appetite has waned recently. But a library book might change that. It's called Dinner Pies which is all about how to make them and recipes. They look and sound delicious, and I haven't had one since my grandmother's 50 years ago. Looks like a lot of work, however.

It's tough trying to become more of a vegetarian when one's daughter gives you 5 bison burgers. Emily picked them up at the farmers market they go to a week ago. (They take their own produce.) I'm on an alternate day vegetarian plan. I figure 180 days a year without meat is a start--sort of a quasi-vegetarian. I do the same with sugar.

Oooooh la la!! Thanks Q-M.

Qiana, your turkey meatballs and sauce sound delicious!

Not a pie, but a shortcake--strawberry. The recipe calls for 2 cups of regular flour, but I use one half cup whole wheat and one half cup corn meal mix. I've been using the latter a lot recently instead of flour. I really like it, and the shortcake was/is delicious.

Like you, Daniel, I have several varieties of rhubarb. The red kind barely emerges, so I only get a few stalks to brighten up the mix.
