Breakfast From leftovers & Common Sense

On our recent RV trip, Bev made up a sandwich that I really liked and when we got home, we still had the ingredients leftover plus some mushrooms from our day-trip to Chattanooga.  I decided to try to recreate the same flavor as a breakfast scramble and started by sautéing some sliced mushrooms (I subbed the shrooms for the lettuce on the Sammy) and chopped onion.  When they had cooked down, I added diced turkey, capicola, and salami and cooked until they were warmed through.
Then added the cheese followed by beaten eggs and diced tomatoes.
While these were cooking I toasted a ciabatta roll from which I’d removed the top and bottom crust and split in half.  After toasting I added mayo to each slice and topped with two thirds of the scramble (Bev ate the other when she got up).
We both thought it was delicious and just as good like this as on the sandwich – and there were just enough ingredients to have it again the next morning.
This may be something that everyone but me has already seen, but I had to post it here.  It's going around on Facebook and I lifted it from the page of a K-9 classmate I recently reconnected with
."Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was, since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape. He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as:-Knowing when to come in out of the rain; - Why the early bird gets the worm;- Life isn't always fair; - And maybe it was fault. Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies, don't spend more than you can earn and adults, not children, are in charge. His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well-intentioned but overbearing regulations were set in place. Reports of a 6-year-old boy charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate; teens suspended from school for using mouthwash after lunch; and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student, only worsened his condition. Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers for doing the job that they themselves had failed to do in disciplining their unruly children. It declined even further when schools were required to get parental consent to administer sun lotion or an aspirin to a student; but could not inform parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion. Common Sense lost the will to live as the churches became businesses; and criminals received better treatment than their victims. Common Sense took a beating when you couldn't defend yourself from a burglar in your own home and the burglar could sue you for assault. Common Sense finally gave up the will to live, after a woman failed to realize that a steaming cup of coffee was hot. She spilled a little in her lap, and was promptly awarded a huge settlement. Common Sense was preceded in death, by his parents, Truth and Trust, by his wife Discretion, his daughter Responsibility, and his son, Reason. He is survived by his 4 stepbrothers; I Know My Rights,I Want It Now,Someone Else Is To Blame,I'm A Victim.Not many attended his funeral because so few realized he was gone. If you still remember him, pass this on. If not, do nothing."

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by Almost Heaven South.


  1. You sure stock up on mushrooms:) Nice stuff.Love the story..will pass it on:)

  2. Common sense tells me that that's a mighty fine sounding breakfast. I do like a hint of tomatoes. Those first two photos look really good Larry. Something looks different, did you change a setting on your camera?

    The common sense thing is great. I'll be sending that to a few people.

  3. That is a load of good ingredients crammed into one breakfast sammie, I bet it was great.

  4. Looks scrumptious and I wish that I had this for breakfast, right now! Enjoyed your trip posts and pics, too, and the common sense article is a hoot! Have a great Sunday!

  5. So true Larry. Love the breakfast Sammie's too. We have a fire going tonight. It is cold in our mutural area of the world.

  6. That is my kind of a breakfast! One that fills you up and you aren't hungry an hour later. I don't know why but I am the only one in the house of 4 that likes mushrooms. It can be a good thing but it also is a bad thing because I dirty more skillets because of it because I make theirs without.

  7. Sure wish I could swing a nice RV - that sure seems the way to go! I won't even tell ya what I spent on boarding all my feline & canine children to go to Disney. Course I'm not so sure I'd want ALL of them in the RV either LOL!!

    As far as that Common Sense story - good stuff. Guess I've missed it before, or else my memory is failing (could be either) but boy ain't it the truth.


I appreciate and enjoy your comments
