Recommended Posts

Breakfast of (Chinese) champions; fresh, warm, homemade silken tofu, doused in chilli oil, dark soy sauce and black Chinkiang vinegar, sprinkled with toasted Sichuan peppercorns, green onion and chopped siu mi yacai, which are Sichuanese preserved mustard greens.

 

And eaten with a crispy yu tiao savoury Chinese doughnut.

 Was meant to be breakfast but will likely be brunch.   Sweet potato hash with pork belly. There must be a secret to getting an intact egg on top. I did squish down the centre with a spoon but somehow the yoke still gets punctured from beneath.  I bet the food stylists have something like the little table that comes in your pizza box.xDxD

fsp toast, breakfast.jpg

 

Flax seed potato bread (from bread topic), toasted, spread with homemade ricotta and topped with peach preserves from my Biscuit Love gift box. Those preserves are possibly the best such I have ever eaten. I intend to buy a vat of them when I'm in Nashville next week. Bacon cooked in the package SV, then drained and refrigerated, then seared a minute on each side (sous vide thread). 

 

Gawdamighty. I'm going to need to start a diet early in the new year.

 Toasted English muffin with apricot preserves. Nothing elaborate this morning. Those of you who have a cleaning Angel know how busy you are on scheduled day. xDxD

I have discovered a fine use for an untouched fast-food loaded baked potato (cheese and shredded bacon). Nuke it, and top it with a poached egg. A quite satisfying breakfast.

I sat up way too late last night watching the movie "Hell or High Water" (which does include one short but hilarious food-related scene) and woke up late. I have awarded myself a couple of months off work, so it didn't matter.

 

As planned, I wandered out to my local xiao long bao shop for my usual. The woman in charge apologised, but she had run out of the aforementioned bao and, as it was so late, it wasn't really on to make more. She did, however, offer me some of her only other menu choice: pork and green onion jiaozi

 

Somewhat disappointed, but understanding her take on things, I purchased her jiaozi, but decided to take them home to eat. It is a little bit chilly and by the time I arrived home and sorted myself out, the jiaozi had cooled somewhat. Just the situation I recently bought my first ever micro-nuke-machine for. A minute at medium power and they were piping hot again.

Would still have preferred xiao long bao. No more midnight movies, for me.

Just noticed a hairline crack on my plate. At the 7 o'clock position. Hmmm.

 Are you suspecting the microwave? I'm sure it's possible. I have just never had it happen to me in many many years of using a microwave.

No. I didn't think that.

It probably happened elsewhere and I just didn't notice. In fact, I didn't notice it when washing the plate; just in the photograph.

No great worries. I like that plate but I have several and the place I bought them still has more.

I don't know,much about these things, but I wonder if your plate might have caught that crack from being too near that banana bread?  Hope it isn't the start of an epidemic!

I don't think it was the banana bread but the lethal combination of banana bread, cheese and a beloved plate. Sort of like "three on a match"  perhaps although the analogy lacks the necessary time element.

Nothing wrong with my banana bread with cheese! I take serious offence at the very suggestion! As do the bananas and cheese! The bread hasn't reported in yet.


Was my banana bread/cheese post on that plate? I really can't remember.

Baking more BB is on tomorrow's agenda and I bought more cheese, so I promise to disgust you on pretty much a daily basis on pretty much every topic I can legitimately shoehorn it into over the next few days. Revenge is banana sweet.

I'm Chiquita Banana and I've come to say,

Liuzhou eats one each and every day.

 Whether baked in bread or served on a plate.

Every one meets the exact same fate.

Yes! We have no bananas

Yes we have bananas.  10 plants in the back yard.  We have bananas.  They are mini but tasty.  

 

Most are bagged and frozen in the freezer.  Make great smoothies

After a banana plant gives fruit it should  be cut down as it will not bear fruit again.  Doesn't take long for a new plant to grow in the shadow of the original as long as the ground is fertile enough

I had a little dish of highly spiced dahl.

Love dahl anytime of the day.

A picture would not do it justice.

My banana plant. Christmas Eve 2016, Many a fine breakfast it has supplied. And adorned many a cheese sandwich.

Try bacon with cheese and banana....

Hmmm. I'll add that to the bucket list. Or maybe just the bucket.
 

This vile rumour that I am some sort of banana fetishist is completely unfounded. Eat one banana bread and cheese sandwich in your life and you are forever branded a pervert!
