I can't tell you how happy I am to be sitting here in my little "writer's nest." Although I've enjoyed the excitement of preparing to move for my husband's new job, I'm not one who loves being on a plane four times in one week. Well, actually, I dislike the whole airport process much more than the flight, itself. Looking at the view from an airplane window, however, is an experience that never gets old for me. Being able to look down on the city of Dallas and then ranches, trees and roadways from the air is like playing "Where's Waldo?" from on high; I always spot something different each time. This time I spotted the Texas Motor Speedway!
While we were on the trip, I had a delicious twist on the "traditional breakfast sandwich" that I would like to share. The Hyatt offered a breakfast bar each morning that included many healthy options, my favorite was an open-faced whole-wheat English muffin with egg white, mushrooms and fresh spinach topped with a slice of smoked provolone (which had been placed under the broiler). I plan use this recipe here at home!
Another breakfast idea that I'm sharing today came from my files. If you pair this unusual and quick (portable) breakfast item with some little link sausages, everyone will be happy...and on time!
Batter-Fried Apple Rings
(General Mills recipe card 1971)

Beat baking mix, egg and milk with rotary beater until smooth. Grease griddle. Cut apples crosswise into 1/8 inch slices. Dip slices into batter. Cook on hot griddle until golden brown, turning once.

Adventures in Texas: I can't wait to see the new sculpture exhibit at the Kimbel Museum in Fort Worth! There was a really nice article about it in Sunday's paper. Also, the Broadway play, Memphis will be at Bass Hall this week. Also, The Black Watch Band is playing at Bass Hall on Tuesday evening!
