|80 cents for a simple nourishing breakfast|
Here is just one of many favourite frugal breakfasts. Soft-boiled eggs and coffee.
I calculated the two eggs and the teaspoon of coffee cost me exactly 80 cents.
You could even do it cheaper than this by using cheap supermarket eggs and no-name coffee - it would probably cost roughly 60 cents.
|The five HM daughters bought me|
this cup for fathers day gift
a few years back. I love it.
My eggs are willingly laid by my happy free-range, scrap gobbling, garden wrecking, very vocal hens hence they cost me just a little more than buying the cheap ones laid by caged hens who have never pecked a worm, never seen the sun, never seen a cockerel fine and live in appalling conditions.
Eggs are an abundant source of protein from the whites and the yolks containing several vitamins and minerals.

and converts to an egg cup.
My coffee is staying hot underneath
until I am ready to eat.
This sure beats the pants off paying $7.50 for a toasted egg and sauce sandwich and a latte.
I had this exact breakfast this morning on the deck watching the beautiful rain.

So, whilst said rain is truly beautiful - I'm off to fix a leaking roof now. Mrs HM has been patient long enough with the bucket regime!
Take care folks and stay nice.
