How do you handle a hungry man? You kill him with fat, grease and cholestoral. Remember that scene in The War of the Worlds when Gene Barry and Ann Robinson are preparing fried eggs inside an abandoned farmhouse, and Barry says with an air of comfort and satisfaction “we’re doing all right”? Once in a great while I’ll prepare an old-fashioned fried egg, bacon and home fries breakfast. Unhealthy but emotionally comforting — a breakfast serving that tens of millions of mothers (including my own) would prepare on weekends.
