Dad's Not So Healthy Breakfast

by Meghann on October 25, 2008

I went to bed last night super excited to be able to run around my old campus. That, mixed with a deflating air mattress, meant I had I had not problem waking up when my alarm clack went off at 7:30 this morning. In fact, I kept waking up before my clock hoping it was already time to get up.

My run this morning was just as a wonderful as I was hoping it would be. My sister lives within running distance of campus so I was able to start my run right outside her door, with no need to drive anywhere special. I ran all the way to the far end of campus, where I used to have my art classes in the fine arts building, then all the way back around the stadium where all of my communication classes were my final year. I saw some new buildings that were still under construction when I left and I saw some holes where old buildings were being tore down. It’s amazing how much campus had changed in the four years I was at school and in the two years since I left.

Since I was weaving in and around campus it’s impossible to map out my exact distance, but I do know my run was 58 minutes long so I am going to guesstimate I did about 6 miles this morning.

After my run everyone slowly started getting up so my Dad made breakfast for the entire apartment. We have a full house here, it’s parent’s weekend so all of my Sister’s roommates also have family in town. I think there are a total of 11 of us staying here. Its definitely a tight fit, but makes for good breakfast company.

My Dad made one of his famous breakfasts this morning. I haven’t had it in a while so I felt like splurging. Growing up my Dad used to make these killer breakfasts every weekend, luckily I don’t live at home anymore so I only have it as a treat every once in a while.


My Dad makes the BEST homemade sausage gravy. He pan frys sausage pattys, removes the sausage pattys and adds crumbled sausage, he then adds flour and milk to soak up the grease until a nice gravy consistency forms. So bad, yet soooo good.


I used to eat two full biscuits swimming in the gravy, but now a days I limit it to one biscuit with just a little gravy. I also had some scrambled eggs, a sausage patty and of course a big helping of fruit.


I dug in to the fruit bowl set aside for tailgating today. Luckily no one minded the dent I made in the bowl. ๐Ÿ™‚

I got a great run in and am now well fed. I am ready for some football!!! FSU is taking on the Virginia Tech Hokies today and let me tell you the Hokies are going down! It should be a great game!!

Have a great Saturday!!!
