breakfast with the Olympics.....

I enjoy the Olympics every time they happen
but I especially LOVED every minute of this
RIO 2016....

 and that means I've watched them 
and night.

 This Sunday morning, the last day of the Olympics
I fried hot spicy sausage,
and when you fry sausage,
it's a TEXAS SIN
not to make a bit of CREAMED GRAVY....

 and we all know there HAS to be a biscuit involved...
 These canned biscuits stacked up pretty great...

and speaking of STACKING UP...
stacked up plenty more GOLD MEDALS this time around.

what a joy it is to watch this young man swim...
and I, like everybody else,

fell in love with his baby boy, BOOMER.
(Instagram )
and Boomer's mom is movie star pretty....


 ...this is a favorite breakfast of Mr. Sweets and we don't have it too often.
...know that fried ANYthing isn't all that good for us..
and "they" tell me that the gravy is FULL of cholesterol  !

I love fresh pineapple...yes, sireee...
but I also love canned pineapple chunks packed in natural juice...
When we have IT...we also get a glass of juice with our breafrast...

These are just a few of the winners...
 O, so many, MANY that just out-did themselves...
so so proud...

and I cried all the way thru these 2 weeks of OLYMPICS...
they work so HARD...
for so LONG...
and give it THEIR ALL.

So many human interest stories surround them and it makes your heart
nearly swell right out of your chest when their dream comes true....
and when MY heart swells....I cry rivers....

I've so enjoyed watching the games every morning.

 When they are all over,
I don't know WHAT will keep us company as we have breakfast..
or lunch...
or mid afternoon snack...
or dinner...
Oh, and one last Olympic Moment that made me laugh and cry at the same time....

After running the 24.2 mile MENS MARATHON,
he slipped on a wet spot and went down

what an amazing young man this is.



  1. I wish I could have watched even more than I did. It really is a wonderful event. Now to watch it with some biscuits and gravy raises it to another level. We were at our sons for 6 days and they don't have tv so I missed a lot at the end. Hope all is well dear bj along with Mr. Sweets!

  2. Would you believe I did not watch one bit?? It wasn't on purpose. I'm not sure now why I missed it all. Especially the synchronized swimming. A friend is going to come over in the next week or two and bring her laptop to hook up to the TV so I can see some of what I missed. I know Amber recored a good many events. I am so glad you were able to watch and enjoy them! Louis Dean has been cooking sausage and eggs the last two mornings. He did NOT make gravy though!! I'm sure he thought about it!!

  3. I'd take the biscuits and gravy over the Olympics any day. Watched very, very little. So glad you enjoyed it with your wonderful breakfasts.

  4. Olympics were wonderful even if I couldn't watch them a lot as I was in Spain on holidays.
    Your breakfast looks delicious!
    Have a nice day

  5. If I had read this before the Olympics began, I might have watched. Thank you for sharing that clip...there are always amazing and triumphant stories and that certainly is one! Now for the sausage gravy thing. My niece-in-law ordered biscuits and gravy for breakfast one morning recently and I was incredulous. I really did not know that people ate breakfasts like that before...except for you!

  6. I, too, must confess that the Olympics went on without me this time around. I LOVE the way you have managed to merge the making and eating of a cholesterol laden meal (as 'they' tell you) into the healthy subject of Olympic competition. You are simply a magician when it comes to this blog! It is magic~

  7. What a wonderful post! I'm so glad you showed us some of the highlights and shared your breakfast with us! Enjoy your day sweet lady. Hugs, Diane

  8. Your breakfast looks so delicious ♥


  9. I love how Michael Phelps broke the ancient record of having the most Olympic gold victories over multiple games set by Leonidas of Rhodes 2200 years ago or so.

  10. I did not watch the Olympics but I did keep up with the medal count. Your food looks delicious. Have a blessed day. Madeline

  11. I love tomatoes with my sausage, biscuits and gravy too. Like you we don't have it often but sometimes just gotta. I love the Olympics too, especially the swimming. Do happy for Michael and his new family.

  12. I so wish I could have watched more of the Olympics. Two of my three daughters watched as much as they could and couldn't wait to share. Speaking of sausage and biscuits! Oh yes...that is a favorite of ours as well. My youngest daughter loves for me to make that for a an occasional Sunday dinner! YUM! I had a light lunch today but now you've got me to wanting some sausage and biscuits! Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  13. The Olympics are always such fun! And your breakfast looks fit for an Olympian -- or me, for that matter!

  14. Oh boy, those biscuits and gravy look delicious and I could eat them any morning! We are not much into these Olympics, happy to hear the US did well but we sure enjoy the winter games. Loving your header...........

  15. I really enjoyed the Olympics this year also. I think I definitely love the summer ones more than the winter ones. The young kids work so hard and it is so good to see them rewarded. I always feel sorry for the ones who don't medal because I know they worked just as hard. Those high diving divers scared me to death.

    Have a good day!


  16. Yummy breakfast! Since we live within walking distance of so many good restaurants when we're in Oregon (now that we live in the City) I've been trying to eat more healthy at home. Only because we go out for breakfast once or twice a week. (It doesn't always work, but knowing we can go out for a "fry-up" or loaded waffle or whatever whenever we want to gives me more of an incentive to stay with the healthy on most mornings at home.

  17. Hi bj ... glad you enjoyed the Olympics. I watched a little bit of them in the evening that Mr.Z. had recorded. Some are interesting and I finds some of the events not so. I know they all work hard and deserve to win. YES !!! love sausage and gravy ... well biscuits too, but only the crusty bottom and top. I give Mr.Z. the inside. Your breakfast looks so good.
    Enjoy this cooler August weather.

  18. Sadly, I didnt watch any of the olympics this time. My favorite has always been the gymnast and swimmers. I love the proud moments and sportsmanship.

  19. I watched the Olympics too, A LOT! If I was at home, the TV was on and flipped back and forth to whatever event was happening! I love volleyball, especially BEACH volleyball! Enjoy your day dear B.J. HUGS!

  20. Great Olympic Overview. . . .
    I loved watching . . .
    I'm sending my hubs to eat at your house . . .
    It will make him a very happy man . . .
    What with bj's Biscuits and Gravy!
