Weekly Photo Challenge:Breakfast


Fried Mush, baby!! CH is the mush maker and cooker. Mush recipe here. But “we” use white cornmeal with lots of salt and pepper and fry it in canola oil and like it sliced a teeny more than a quarter inch thin so it’s nice and crispy. All the better to hold the “buttah” and the Amish made sorghum molasses. And no, there is not one healthy thing about mush. It’s country gourmet!

  1. I’ve never had mush but I’m guessing it somewhat like thick grits that have been fried. I bet it’s tasty. What’s not to like about fried corn, huh? Good morning to you and CH!

  2. Looks yummy, I will have to try that. We make panhaus with pork shoulders, add cormeal, and fry it the same way.
    Oh and BTW, we had amish sorgum with our whomp biscuits today. (Whomp biscuits are the ones in the can that you whomp on the cabinet to open!) LOL

    1. Isadora I think they are kind of the same. Even like polenta. I would have to google but I think it’s all corn ground differently. CH has tried to fry grits but they were just too watery and did some frightening sputtering all over the stove top! Yikes. Mush is a tradition in his family. I wouldn’t touch Mush without lots of butter and salt and pepper. Thanks for visiting.

  3. Sounds sinfully good!
    I was too sleepy to photograph my own unhealthy breakfast; fried egg, mushrooms, onion, tomato and a slice of toast, plus two cups of strong coffee…
    I’m not sure i’ll ‘rise’ to this challenge!

    1. Isobel, I thought about taking a rest from this challenge but I was afraid if I didn’t post I would do my olympic style procrastinating and not post again until the next photo challenge. Mushrooms and tomatoes, they are good for you 😉

      1. Everything in the frying pan bar the oil was good for me! But it’s the oil that counts…
        On the other hand, I enjoyed every mouthful, so that must be good for my soul, mustn’t it? And the two cups of good strong coffee were great. 🙂

        1. Yes to the “good for my soul”. Sometimes I think denying ourselves things that make us happy(within reason)does more harm. I’m really not supposed to have wine but a glass of wine in the afternoon with CH on the porch makes me happy and I think that is good for my soul 😉 My cardiologist gave me an ok for one glass! But occasionally I cheat, ohmy…….

  4. I love Country Gourmet foods! We had some good ole heart healthy bacon, fried eggs and gravy for breakfast! Love the stuff and guess it’s a good thing we only eat it maybe once a week. 😀 We’re off to Branson Wednesday and returning Monday so I’ll not be blogging for a few days. I hope you and CH have a great Thanksgiving, Pix!

    1. I know, I know Cheryl! Shhhhh, we just won’t let the Cardiologists know. Have fun in Branson! We did go to the Resort you told us about, we had a nice time. It was lovely, like being in Colorado. A Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family too Cheryl!

  5. Oh, Lordy Pix, this has to be a Southern meal. I for one have never heard of mush, but I bet it would be tasty with Maine maple syrup on it! Happy Thanksgiving to you and Country Husband, Julie.

    1. I think it is Southern Julie. Maybe Midwestern. Long tradition in CH’s family. CH’s family eats some strange things, took me a bit to get used to them. The Mama had her three boys begging her to fry up some Mush and soon the daughter-in-law’s were requesting it too! And it would definitely be extra tasty with some of your Maine maple syrup on it-go for it! CH and I will be thinking of you and your family on Thanksgiving Julie. Thank you for the Happy Thanksgiving wishes. Take care there at Dog Trot Farm!

  6. Hey Now! I thought I have eaten/heard of every bit of country food there was. I have never heard of or tried fried mush but now I am going too. Dont like molasses though so is syrup tasty on it?

  7. The fried mush looks delicious. I like sorghum molasses on warm biscuits. My grandfather must have been a country gourmet because he always had a jar of sorghum molasses or apple butter on the breakfast table.
    Great post Pix! I love it.

  8. re: barn charm – most memes open up the day before the actual ‘day’. like world bird wednesday opens up around tues. at noon. tricia opens her barn charm monday afternoons so i just started posting my barns on monday mornings, then linking in once she does her post. 🙂
