Despite reporting snow in Eveleth, Chris Irvin became a member in order to share his breakfast story with John and Heidi. Starting the day right, former chef Chris described his hot Italian sausage, cheese, peppers and onions as a great way to start the day with a cup of black coffee.

When you think of breakfast, the first thing that comes to mind might not be instant oatmeal, but that's what Amy Baasi of Cherry offered up when she joined Heidi and John for breakfast (since Rob forgot). Weekends are for real, yummy oatmeal, but instant makes an easier start to a busy day. Either way, it all starts with a handy red teapot.

One of our Southern members, Karin O'Quinn invited us to her table in Orlando for cranberry, orange muffins, eggs, and . . . cheese grits. John and Heidi found out more about this gritty delicacy and about the trials of living in 80 degree heat while the relatives bask in 7-10 inches of new snow and highs in the 20s.
