Breakfast! 2013

Recommended Posts

Thanks, Ann_T.

p.s. Nice scones. That's one sort of sweetish baked product I don't mind, though I'd much prefer them without the extra sugar drizzle on it.

Leftover Chinese takeout. Will be lunch and dinner too! Won't be ordering in again any time soon. Too much food for this guilt-ridden, ration book kid!

Banh xeo (Vietnamese crispy pancake). Nailed it on the umpteenth try which means it will serve as brunch instead of breakfast! The secret is getting the batter much, much thinner than you think it ought to be and then cooking it much, much longer than seems reasonable. This one was filled with seasoned ground pork and bean sprouts. I did not bother with the accompaniments or a dipping sauce as I wanted to just figure out the pancake. Though I had purchased a Banh xeo mix yesterday, I made this batter from scratch.

Went grocery shopping very, very early this morning and spotted some baby beef liver. This is a relatively rare find and is something I just love and so..... Put my groceries away, sliced up and fried an onion, seasoned and floured the liver and breakfast was served. Why didn't I save it for dinner? Have company coming and they would die rather than eat liver!

Mrs. Meshugana made banana bread muffins, and I got a new camera (Eos 70D!) and a breakfast pic is the result.

Here, there is a difference between baby beef liver and calves liver. If I could find calves liver I'd have it for breakfast too.

So would I. I just wondered if there was a difference and what that difference might be.

Frankly I think in this region they are all meaningless marketing terms. When I checked my bill to make sure it was correct I was surprised to see that I had bought veal liver! I just know that as long as it is labelled either calves liver or baby beef liver it will be tender (fragile when raw) and mild tasting. Sorry I can't be more helpful.

The batter is from the Rasa Malaysia web site.

Jean-Georges Vongerichten's Ginger Fried Rice. This is one of Food52's Genius recipes which are almost always worth trying.

Anna, I'd kill for that liver, not die of it! Yum! How long and at what heat did you cook it? What did you season it with prior to cooking? TIA!

It was seasoned with nothing more exotic than salt and pepper, dredged in flour and quickly fried in a combination of olive oil and butter. The pan was hot enough to sear it immediately and I then reduced the heat minimally to cook it through, flipped to sear the second side. It took no more than 5 minutes.

Toasted white whole wheat sandwich bread, Cain's mayonnaise(I am a Miracle Whip girl but I LOVE the taste of this mayo)and thinly sliced Brandywine tomatoes. Is there anything better in the summer than this?


Nothing is better than frying in lard.

Nothing.  Do not quote me on this.

That is something I have not heard before - can you describe the taste of the bamboo liquid?

I'm not surprised you haven't heard of it. It's a little known speciality of the Zhuang people in a rural area of this part of China (near the border with Vietnam).

The taste is subtle. Slightly sweet with hints of asparagus and of grapes, which is much better than it sounds. I find it very refreshing.
