Beans for Breakfast? Are You Mad?

I've been having the same little strange breakfast every morning lately. It's toast with baked beans and eggs on top.

No, I am not pregnant. I'm barely laying eggs anymore. And as far as I know I've not gone completely crazy, as of yet.

Andy tells me of this landlady he once had when he was a young teenage lad in nautical school. She made him beans on toast with a poached egg every morning. It was part of the room and board and food arrangement they had. I thought it sounded good! I also noticed that beans are a very common addition in the proper English breakfasts that I ate recently on our trip.

At about 219 calories a serving, it's a lot better for me than a McDonald's cheese and egg biscuit (though those things are damn good.)

That's because you're brilliant, of course!

The phrase "I'm barely laying eggs anymore." Makes me laugh and feel vaguely uncomfortable.
Looks tasty to me.

I'm one of those "can't mix my foods on my plate" kinds of girls.
