By Akindman,

February has been named National Hot Breakfast Month. The history of celebrating Breakfast in the month of February was actually created by the Jimmy Dean Foods division of the Sara Lee Corporation. Jimmy Dean Foods is known for producing heat-and-serve breakfast dishes (most notably with Jimmy Dean Brand Sausage) and found that over 60% of Americans eat cold cereal or another non-hot breakfast each day. This is why they started a month-long holiday to promote interest in hot breakfast options.

Today we always hear that breakfast is considered the most important meal of the day, but why? First, breakfast starts your day off right and gives you needed energy to get your body going for the day. Second in regards to weight loss, having a complete diet also gives the body balance and weight control. Not only can it help improve the way your body functions, but it also helps with improving focus and performance at school and at work.

 With my diabetes and other health related issue, eating regular eggs was no longer an option so I eat egg whites these days - it was amazing how quickly I learned to enjoy them.  They are good and good for you!

 Oatmeal and Cream of Wheat were our primary breakfast weekdays during school.  Our weekends we enjoy much heartier meals.

 One of my all time favorites is French Toast.  The type of bread and ensuring the toast is cooked properly are key to success.  There are hundreds of ways to fix French Toast - so get in there and have fun!

 Grits is a southern specialty that I learned to enjoy while stationed in Jacksonville, Florida many years ago.

 Silver Diner is a local chain that serves Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner daily. There food is very good and staff very attentive to customers.

 Remember when you were a kid and having pancakes/hotcakes!  Stacking them as high as the adults would allow you - then watching syrup flow over the top and down your stack - with your fork at the ready!

Hamburger Gravy over Biscuits

 Granny used to make hamburger on Friday or Saturday evening - always leaving one patty out for breakfast and just covering the pan overnight, because we were going to have hamburger gravy and biscuits for breakfast.  What a treat for us!  Great tasting and stayed with you all morning long.  What fond memories.
