Breakfast, I had grits, salmon and eggs. I get canned salmon. You fry off some bacon, onions and bell peppers, put the salmon in and sauté it up. Then cook some grits, scramble some eggs. That's breakfast. With cranberry juice.

No lunch. No lunch at all. I had Cheetos, the regular kind of crunchy Cheetos.

For dinner, I had hot dogs. Chili dogs, really, with French fries. The French fries I made from whole potatoes, peeled and sliced lengthwise. And then I made the chili with ground beef and peppers. I like it kind of spicy.
