I often have left over pizza for breakfast but I heat mine up.

neither oatmeal or cornmeal are on my diet

Fried cornmeal mush is one of my favorites(with maple syrup) but haven't had it in a long time.  I would have to eat it all myself.

No, you wouldn't, one of my favorite things to eat.

I make  Hot Water Cornmeal for breakfast sometimes.  Had it as a kid. Grandma would put blobs in hot grease and chunk it up a bit and fry until crunchy golden brown. It has to be crunchy.  She didn't make patties at all. Served it with butter and homemade syrup or Dark Karo.  Oh and she always gave me "coffee-milk w/sugar" too.  More milk than coffee, but I got hooked on caffeine early in life.  

Easy too:  Lard, Cornmeal,  tiny bit of salt, Boiling Water.    I usually use a cup of cornmeal, heaping TBSP of lard, bacon grease or crisco.  and pour the hot water over and stir it together to make a soft paste looking batter.  *You can add a touch of sugar if you want but not necessary as you'll use syrup as sweetener in the serving..

This is a fairly decent recipe

anyone have wood floors?  We want to remove the carpet in our den & living areas and had thought we were going to install some brick-look tile, similar to what we used in our mud room 7 years ago.  Well we can't find anything even close, apparently that style is not In Style right now.  Everyone is telling us we should do wood.  That we'll like it much better than tile, but I'm worried about our dogs and how well it will hold up over time.   I grew up in a house with wood floors & my mother HATED them, I still remember getting spankings for coming in the house with wet feet.  Paying someone to come polish them with one of those dual brush polishing machines.  

Hard wood floors are pretty good. We had them in our house up in Washington years ago and really liked them. They are really pretty. We had a dog and I do not remember having any problems. He was a med sized dog.

thanks Ami.  I do think we'll have to be better about trimming their nails.

Why do you want to remove carpet? 

DH and I love carpet mainly for the sound-deadening quality but also for the warmth and comfort on bare feet.  There are so many different types of carpet these days ....

We realize that wood floors are the "in thing" these days but they make a room so noisy ....

Primarily the dogs. We tore out the carpet in the den after Christmas and just have bare concrete right now.  Cleaner. Just going to do it in the public areas.

Dee, this is the stuff (Paradigm waterproof flooring) that we used in our family room when we switched from carpet.  I didn't want hardwood because of the maintenance.  I definitely didn't want laminate because of water issues.  The product we chose looks like wood planks.  It's slightly cool on the bare feet but not cold.  If you need to, it is possible to replace a "plank".  Lots of colors and looks to choose from.   We've been happy with it.
