I like to bake my bacon but when these slices were laid out on a rack they looked dreadfully naked so I took the pepper grinder to them. Might pursue this idea with other seasonings. Bacon, eggs and fried tomatoes -- a real umami bomb.

One dunks them in the soup to "gather up" some of the soup then pop them into one's mouth before they become soggy so they still have some crunch. :-)  Or chomp on them as-is.  I do both, so do most people, I think.  Most folks would want them crisp/warm on the plate; cold and limp counts as a strike against the vendor/shop/food stall if eating out.

Sunday brunch:

13037975853_657c5a1b75_z.jpg

Beets, citrus, walnuts

The beets were roasted Saturday evening, then macerated with fennel fronds, Meyer lemon juice, crushed fennel seed and sea salt overnight. This mixture was then combined with chopped clementine orange, walnuts and scallion, and dressed with a Meyer lemon vinaigrette (1 teaspoon clementine juice, 3 tablespoons Meyer lemon juice, 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, sea salt and black pepper to taste.)


13037829525_264198dea8_z.jpg

Scrambled eggs (2 eggs, sea salt, black pepper, 2 tablespoons milk) with champignon mushrooms (chopped champignon mushrooms (otherwise known as white button mushrooms, the kind you get in your supermarket), sautéed in olive oil, with chopped shallots, slivered scallion, sea salt and black pepper) and green mango pickle.


Looks like my kinda breakfast. I love beet salads and the eggs look great

My to-do list suggests that this could be a challenging day so a substantial breakfast seemed like a good idea. Acorn squash stuffed with seasoned ground pork, onions, garlic, squash flesh and topped with an egg.

Yes, that looks substantial enough. :-) 

Not much carb - but I seem to remember that you are on a low-carb diet, is that correct?

I try! But my stuffed squash has sustained me through an Indian chicken dish, a batch of naan and a berry torte! Now let's hope it keeps me adequately fuelled through the clean up.

A couple of croissants this morning [from Rene's Bakery] plus three soft-boiled eggs w/ light soy sauce & white pepper.

The croissant on the left was described by the guy at the shop as "coming out a bit funny" but it cried out to me "Take meee hoooome..."

The "genius recipes" from Food52 are always worth a try. Roger Verge's eggs with red wine vinegar sounded intriguing. Perhaps it was the quality of my vinegar. Perhaps I didn't reduce it enough. Whatever, it failed to awe me. Might try again someday. One regular supermarket egg; one organic egg!

Have not been able to find fresh green peppercorns lately, but I did find Madagascar Green Peppercorn cheese by Bothwell at Sobeys!

 

For breakfast today to put the fire under me for marking final exams:

 

slices of the cheese with English cucumber on black olive ciabatta...

Anna, Moe would love all of your breakfasts. And I'm a pepper fan. Even carry a grinder in my purse.   I need to see if anyone around here carries Voatsiperifery pepper.

 

Moe's breakfast.

Scrambled eggs with toasted sourdough.  I love that chives are one of the first things to come up in the garden.

This morning I made coarse stone ground yellow grits with a runny fried egg on top. I love these grits. They taste like eating yellow corn on the cob.
