Breakfast! 2016 (Part 3)

Recommended Posts

Left over roasted chicken with home fries.  I love to have leftovers for breakfast.  Morning sun creates long shadows that make it difficult to take photo but make for a very beautiful view!

Duck hash with fried egg and English muffin.  Two shallots sliced and slowly caramelized before being set aside (to avoid cremating them while browning the potatoes).   Small potatoes cooked whole in the Instant Pot and then cubed and cooked in duck fat. Onions returned to pan with potatoes and cubed leftover duck stirred in.

When I make breakfast it is totally boring - but we just got back from 2 nights at A B&B in Hyde Park, NY where the breakfasts were really special. If any one is going there - and given the CIA, the FDR home and museum, the Vanderbilt mansion, I highly recommend it - stay at Journey Inn.

Friday morning started with grilled pineapple with yogurt and pistachios. I will be making this although maybe not for breakfast. It was followed by pumpkin pancakes and bacon

This morning started with a roasted pear over yogurt, followed by a blueberry scone, a fruit gratin (pastry crust, custard, fruit, oats and almonds) and sausage.

The pear over yogurt looks like a brilliant idea. Was the pear warm?

 


Don't ask. Eat it.

Just barely warm.  I actually preferred the pineapple - but I have a weakness for grilled or broiled pineapple.

Poached eggs on Italian toast, scrapple , fresh salsa and grapefruit. On my last visit to Aldi, mixed ruby and plain grapefruit were 29 cent each and I loaded up on them.

Cambozola, a little (too much) honey, toasted hazelnuts and some dried apricots.

My meager offerings was pita with Spanish cheese for breakfast.  It hit the spot as usual.  No pics as it was too mundane to post a pic

I've been meaning to ask @HungryChris, what's in the blue and gold ceramic container ? 

It is beautiful, Italian ?

On a previous trip to Italy, we went to Deruta, a hill town famous for ceramics, and I bought the little container with the birds, that I use as a salt pot.  Over time, I managed to chip the lid, which troubles me to this day, and I often say that I wish I had bought several, because the day that I break it completely, will be a sleepless one for me. We had planned to return to Deruta on our recent trip to Italy, but just never did.  On a day trip to a town called Rada, Deb fell in love with the item you question at a place called Rampini Ceramics and bought it, even though we both thought it was over priced and too big for a salt pot. Later in the trip, I bought the one on the left which is my every day table salt pot (as I am sure you can tell from some of my pics) and the older one, with the birds, has been moved by the stove, so that neither one gets moved as often. To answer your question, we still don't know what to do with the one Deb bought, but Deb just likes to look at it on a regular basis, so I use it to keep the napkins from flying around the room when the A/C is on. I think it currently contains Euros left over from our trip. I know that is way too much information, but it is what it is and thanks for asking.

I'm in stitches, hilarious Chris, thanks.
