Huckleberry Finning My Breakfast

So Charlie made milk gravy and put it over toast, with sides of hashbrown patties and eggs. And I did this with mine:
Charlie said, "You're just like Huckleberry Finn, eh?" I knew exactly what he meant. Huck says, "In a barrel of odds and ends it is different; things get mixed up, and the juice kind of swaps around, and the things go better."

Ah, the marriage of two lit jocks is a beautiful thing.

Last week, I said I would tell you about The Soup That Wouldn't Die, but I find I didn't take a picture. What it was, was that I made a soup out of leftover black beans and hominy, with tomato sauce, water, and vegetable bouillon. We didn't finish it. Then I had some leftover quinoa, and I put that in. And we didn't finish it. I just kept adding leftovers until FINALLY our appetites and the amount of soup matched up, and we finished it!
