Biscuits for breakfast

...and a bad ass healthy lunch... We are now truly ill... Yesterday I asked Hubs if the term splitting headache had come about because somebody's head had actually split from a headache. It also feels like hot coals have taken up residence in our chests' too.... Melodramatic? Hypochondria?

This morning after Hubs had gone to work, I went back to bed, not to sleep, door wide open, able to hear everything, no need to call social services, I just needed to lie down. Small hit the fruit bowl, he polished off 2 bananas, 2 apples, 3 tangerines and then came to tell me he was still hungry. I said I'd get him some breakfast in a bit. You'd think with all that fruit his stomach could have waited a while... Anyway, Little got up a bit later and then..... the three of us had biscuits for breakfast and I don't feel like a bad parent at all... Why? Because I know that later today I will force myself to prepare some nutritious food that will help heal our poorly bodies and I know we don't eat biscuits for breakfast every day. Infact this could be the first time, but it might not be the last.

This sandwich/tortilla filling was excellent... and healthy, we ate lots of it yesterday.

Grated cheddar cheese, chopped cucumber, chopped red pepper, mayonnaise, sweet chilli sauce - mix it all up - fill your sandwich or tortilla - very nice thank you.

Today I'll mainly be drinking this lemon, honey and ginger drink that I posted about back in 2007.

Next time ask your hubby to make a quick omelette or something for himself instead of asking you to make it!! Really!!! ;D

Tortilla filling looks tasty. I make Biscuits(southern US biscuits are similar to savory scones) and sausage gravy but only on Sunday mornings. I will post one day! :))

Hope you are soon feeling much better. Nothing wrong with biscuits for breakfast on occasion! And this filling looks delicious - hope it nurses you back to health.

Kelly-Jane said...

I do hope you are all feeling a whole lot better soon, and biscuits for breakfast is just toast, butter and topping ingredients in a different order! xx

That little one can pack away the fruit! I love how you filled the tortilla. Hope you are better.

Caffienated Cowgirl said...

Seriously, it's okay to have biscuits for breakfast every once in a while :)

Hope you are feeling better...

KJ said...

I've been known to eat biscuits for breakfast. I don't even have an excellent excuse like you. At least they're not chocolate biscuits...I tell myself. It could always be worse :}

Rosie said...

I hope you are feeling much better soon! It sucks to have to get food ready when you feel so ill and all you want to do is rest!

A good bowl of chicken soup I always ask for when i feel ill.
