Breakfast at Hardee’s

Two weekends in a row Tbug has been with us on a Sunday morning.  And oddly enough both Sunday mornings we ate breakfast at Hardees.  It was on our way to where we were going both days.  Please don’t tell my diet about this!

Last weekend Tbug got the Biscuits & Gravy. Truthfully you can’t go wrong with a good biscuit & gravy and I swear out of all the places I’ve tried them, Hardees has to be my absolute favorite.  Why I didn’t get this, I still keep asking myself!  Don’t worry though, I cut it up for her and then stole a bite.  Tried to convince her it wasn’t any good and I just needed to eat it myself ;).

The Shack: Breakfast

Hubby and I were actually able to make it to a Tuesday night dinner up at the shack this week.  It cracks me up because the theme was Breakfast which was what the theme for our Sunday Night Dinner was.  Great Minds think a like.  There was some fabulous food there too I must say!

These biscuits were out of this world good.  Supposedly there was heavy cream involved, how can you go wrong there?!?!  Just don’t tell the scales in the morning!

I can’t remember if my Sister in law brought this or her mother in law made this but YUM!  That’s all!

My mother-in-law made cinnamon rolls.  One side (I think the left) were chocolate and the other were regular.

And then we had another breakfast casserole that either my SIL or her MIL brought.

And NO dinner is complete without a singing/walking turtle!  Heck yeah!  We know how to bring it here in MO!

Gluten Free Cooking & Corn Starch

I have two friends who are supposed to eat Gluten Free, so when I cook for them, I try (key word) to adhere to that, but it’s taken a bit of education on my part.  So I thought I’d pass on some knowledge that I’ve learned.

Cornstarch is made from corn kernels, which do not contain the gluten protein that causes problems in people with celiac disease and gluten sensitivity.
Therefore, pure cornstarch is gluten-free. But when you’re eating gluten-free because gluten — even a tiny bit of gluten — makes you sick, you need to consider whether the cornstarch you’re buying has been manufactured in a way that avoids potential sources of gluten cross-contamination.
Many of the brands on the market are made in shared facilities or on equipment shared with wheat products, and so they aren’t considered gluten-free. However, there are a few brands out there that are safe on the gluten-free diet.

Cornstarch Is Extremely Useful for Gluten-Free Cooking

Sonic Breakfast Review

If you haven’t been to a Sonic or even heard of a Sonic, I must ask you, what rock do you live under?  I mean, that might be mean to say, but if you watch tv or listen to the radio, you’ve probably definitely heard the annoying sonic commercial guys.

Anyway, Saturday morning, we decided to head to Kansas City for the day.  On our way headed north, it was breakfast time so we decided to stop in at the Sonic in Lamar and get breakfast.

The cool thing is their menu is served all day… but don’t worry, we went for Breakfast food this time.

Tbug went with the CroisSonic Breakfast Sandwich with bacon
