Kim – I am very sorry to hear that you must endure health issues. Best wishes for a full and speedy recovery.

Huevos rancheros – Leftover chipotle-enhanced salsa ranchera, eggs over easy, cilantro, and warm flour tortillas. Zippy!

A lot of onions looked like this in this batch. Hate that. Anyway this onion went into this out of focus hash with home made sv corned beef and yukon gold potato tossed in the pan with ketchup and a little sriracha.

huiray, I could totally eat that for breakfast. Looks fabulous

Yup

Huevos rusticos on warm corn tortillas. The sauce turned out surprisingly zippy so I took the edge off with heavy cream. These were perhaps the last beefsteak tomatoes of the year. One more beefsteak might ripen and if it does, it is destined for the last BLT of the year.

This morning: a pack of Dragonfly brand 'Instant Noodles Artificial Hot & Sour Shrimp Flavor', augmented w/ lots of chopped scallions and sliced celery. New to me. I like this one. The lemongrass and spicy flavors are definitely there, the noodles are quite pleasant and appropriate for what they are. I agree w/ Ramen Rater on this one.

I could eat Mexican every day. Love your breakfast Bruce.

My son is home visiting for a few days and I promised him homemade pizza. There was enough dough left to make a pizza for breakfast.

Moe's was a "breakfast" pizza topped with fresh mozzarella, fried potatoes, bacon and eggs,

My standard breakfast these mornings is a plain Greek yogurt parfait with honey, homemade granola, blueberries and grapes that my husband lovingly halves for me :-)

B'fast today:

A pack of "Ho Fan Abalone Chicken Soup Flavored" [sau Tao] (this one) gussied up w/ leftover broiled turmeric chicken wings, tuscan kale (fished from the pork stock it was simmered in), and maitake mushrooms + snow fungus stir-fried w/ scallions. It worked quite well.

Cream cheese, sanduche cheese, pernil, and fresh garden tomato on amaranth-herb bagels. It was the yum.

Note to the curious: if you look up "pernil" in general you'll find lots of things about ham. Ecuadorian pernil is a different creature - it's certainly a pork product, but I wouldn't class it as a ham in the sense you're all used to. The spices and curing process used mean it's more like huge slices of well-seasoned bacon with less of the fat and more of the porky goodness. Pernil in other countries bears exactly zero resemblance to pernil in Ecuador.....

Is it smoked? What you describe does sound a little bit like what is called "Farmer's Ham" in my parts, a.k.a. Bauernschinken - this certainly is bacon-like to me, anyway; and pretty salty at times, depending on the batch and who's making it.

Thank you, Ann. Fantastic pizzas – we should work out a breakfast exchange.

Huiray - Your turmeric chicken wings looked just as vibrant at breakfast as at Dinner!

Creamy slow-scrambled eggs with cooked-down salsa verde, heavy cream, and Mexican oregano, topped with fresh tomato, radish, minced shallot, feta cheese, and Hawk Hollow Heat hot sauce. I like this brand of corn tortillas – they actually puff up when heated directly over the flame.

Judging by the flavour of what I'm currently eating, it's lightly smoked over something very mild, maybe peach wood? It's not overly salty either - just enough to bring out the bacon-ish flavour. The texture is closer to roast pork hock than it is to most commercial style hams, and there's a definite and pronounced marble and grain in the meat. And as with most artisan style cured meats in this country, every single producer has a slightly different spice mixture and curing trick, so no two pernil are ever quite alike. I've eaten bauernshinken; pernil is similar in texture but the spices take it in different direction entirely.

The next town down the road from me, Riobamba, is justifiably famous for its bone-in pernil - next time I'm there, I'll try to find out a bit more about the process and spices involved...
