Breakfast! 2013


Recommended Posts

"Spicy & Hot with Braised Chitterlings Flavor Vermicelli" (麻辣肥腸粉絲) [Lam Sheng Kee "Healthy Food" (brand)] with chopped scallions added in. :smile:

[Actually, "肥腸" is "fat intestine" and would usually be the colorectum. ;-) The soup in this does have the expected "taste" and is pleasantly spicy although not very "numbing" (the "麻辣" or "ma la" part). The vermicelli is cellophane noodles. The spicing mix (in 2 internal bags) also contains (dried) whole soy beans.]

Pork, shrimp, cabbage & mushroom wontons [Prime Food] with wonton noodles & "long Napa" cabbage. In soup made from sautéed sliced ginger & halved garlic cloves quenched w/ chicken broth & simmered w/ dried shiitake mushrooms & dried anchovies; decanted when done. The garlic and some of the shiitake (sliced) were recovered and added in to the dish.

Another early A.M. breakfast - fried rice w/ sliced "Vietnamese style" lap cheong [Prime Food], chopped scallions, chopped de-stringed Western celery, eggs scrambled in situ. Eaten w/ pickled chopped long hot green chillies & Lingham's Thai Hot Sauce.

---------

Labeled as "with Mei Kwe Lu Flavor"‡§ but the list of ingredients shows that the flavoring ingredient is Fen Chiew, called on the list as "Gin" ("Distilled from 80% sorghum, 3% wheat, 4% rice, 5% peas, 8% white sugar; ALC 53% VOL") - and presumably "Fen Chiew" is "汾酒" which is a grain alcohol, more commonly described as a "vodka" of sorts.

The Vietnamese name on the package (Lạp Xưởng Mai Quế Lộ), so far as I can discover, suggests that it could be cinnamon flavored (?) - but I can't detect any cinnamon smell or flavor in it. Interestingly, one reviewer of one brand of "fen chiew" noted that the taste had cinnamon notes - to him, anyway...perhaps that might be a possible link? (comments from Vietnamese speakers welcome!)

§ The Chinese name on the package is "越式玫瑰露臘腸" which would mean "Vietnamese-style rose dew/distillate 'lap cheong' " which also conflicts with the list of ingredients (no rose extracts listed) (but the package containing the sausages is rose-colored, though) Perhaps a fanciful "transliteration" of the Vietnamese into Chinese? (Speculating) (The Yale Cantonese for the Chinese would be yut6 sik1 mui4 gwai3 lou6 laap6 cheung4).

Whatever. This package of 'lap cheong' provided me with some enjoyable head-scratching.

Poached farm egg, with fried leeks and smoked bacon

The bacon was made from heritage pigs, raised at Flying Pigs Farm (http://flyingpigsfarm.com). Eggs from Quattro's Game Farm (http://hudsonvalleybounty.com/listing/quattro’s-game-farm-farm-store) and leeks from Paffenroth Gardens (http://www.realtimefarms.com/farm/4689052/paffenroth-gardens).

Yes, it's been forever since I posted. Yes, I'm still alive, emerging from work-induced hell.

A couple of breakfasts recently.

A Mickey-Mouse themed brunch for a two-year-old's birthday. Who doesn't love pigs in a blanket, particularly with good honey mustard?\

OK, it looks like the cat threw it up, but it's eggs scrambled with bacon, diced tomatos, diced yellow squash, and I'm-not-sure-what-all-else, accompanied by cheese grits. Worked.

Latkes and a bagel with smoked salmon and cream cheese spread.

Don't ask. Eat it.

Ann_T – fish cakes, poached egg, and hollandaise looks absolutely divine!

huiray – your breakfasts look a lot like our dinners, but I wouldn’t complain

Spaghetti with spicy sausage sauce – with butter, garlic, tomatoes, cayenne, and Parmesan cheese. I had planned this for last night’s dinner, but arrived home to find that Mrs. C had a meal ready to eat.

Anyway, I had a taste for spicy sausage, and younger son was happy to help ensure no leftovers (even though it was his second breakfast).
