Breakfast! 2017 (Part 2)

 I thought I would combine breakfast and quality control this morning.  I assembled some savory palmiers  for my daughter and her friends to enjoy as an appetizer.  Caramelized onions, bacon, Gruyere and cheddar.  They failed the quality control check and I will be posting in the Pastry & Baking Section to see if they can be "saved". 

Here.

My husband I made breakfast this morning.  No cream cheese, no problem.  Butter is good too.

I picked the first few shishito peppers this morning and wasted no time in putting them on the menu. Many more to come, I hope!

Ready for 20 minutes in a non-preheated oven at 450F. This is the bacon we purchased yesterday at a local meat market. Each slice weighs about 2 ounces.

Followed by farm fresh eggs purchased at our local farmers market, also yesterday. To be fried in the bacon drippings.

A hearty start for a quiet Sunday morning! (My husband added a hash brown patty to his plate.)

I had occasion to go down to IKEA.   its about 40 min away , and a trip of no merit .

 

however I had 2 other things to look into on the way

 

so this is my breakfast :

 

59999e652e973_JamandEggs.thumb.jpg.babd1e7177ce1fdbc04b0f6099399ec8.jpg

 

this jam is one of my favorites , and you get it at IKEA  its tart-ish

 

this is a form of an old fashioned French Country dessert :

 

an Omelette w jam or jelly in the middle.

 

in this form , its a slice of sourdough bread from the CSB , the Lingon , and eggs that are not perfectly scrambled nor an Omelette  

 

somewhere in between 

 

on top of that.

 

delicious Id say.

 

BTW   stopped at Costco  ( not a member ) and their Booze is 2 -  3 dollars a bottle more than

 

Total Wine.

 

( errand # 2 )

 

for completeness sake  # 1 was to Stop by the closest Porsche dealer and sit in a 911S

 

as a good friend of mine is getting one in a few days from Germany,

 

no threat of me getting one :   It took me 10 minutes to extract myself from the machine

 

however , pretty snappy if you're short,

 

and low to the ground yourself .

 

PS  try the jam/eggs thing some time

 

you might be surprised

Goodness can't remember making breakfast.  Put some soaked chickpeas on   the stove this morning and had a few bites of hummus and crunch chickpeas from the oven, the product of this bag of beans.

For those of you who are experiencing cooler weather (or are expecting to), here's recipe I ran across today.

The weather here is still hovering around the 90s so I won't be making my share anytime soon....Hot and really smoky with the windows closed tight.

I've never been a fan of oatmeal but I'm thinking that making it this way may push me over to the other side.

Baked Oatmeal

 

since the recipe serves eight, I'm wondering if I could make the whole recipe and then cut it into squares and freeze the excess...?

Do you think that would work ok?

Smashed White Bean Toasts with Roasted Asparagus and Sumac from Melissa Clark's Dinner

IMG_5945.thumb.jpg.a84d5f08c7ead98db4067864d9c38b7a.jpg

The beans are mashed with garlic, lemon juice & zest.  The sumac was a nice touch.

@DiggingDogFarm 

 

your are correct.

 

but shuck a dull trip.

 

Back When in the SF area ,  on the peninsula a new IKEA  

 

came to E.PaloAlro.

 

as this is the Breakfast Thread :

 

that one was about 15 minutes away

 

from my home.  I used to go there for Breakfast if I went exploring

 

One thing IKEA does well is their Restaurant

 

Breakfast @ 1.99    bacon and eggs etc

 

coffee terrible.

 

but the Local Seniors were always there In Force  

 

they also9 have some wonderful Duck Down/feathered Pillow.

 

and Swedish MeatBalls !

 

always check the Restaurant.

 

I had gravlax for 4.99

 

http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/categories/departments/food/

 

always check out the Restaurant

 

back when  , and indeed Back When

 

they used to have a Smogasborad   2 - 3 times a year

 

you had to receiver a place

 

delicious it was.

Wish I was closer. I'd tag along! xD

I think the closest IKEA to me is the one just north of Philly—200+ miles! O.o

So...granola bars by any other name? 

 

I'd wrap them and store them at room temp, but I don't see any reason they wouldn't freeze and thaw perfectly well. They might perhaps be a bit tacky to the touch when you open them up.

That's the same recipe we used in the restaurant I worked in.  You could try it but the oatmeal didn't set up so much that we could cut it.  We stored it in the container we cooked it in then reheated in the microwave for service ... if we had leftovers.  It was quite a popular dish.......

We used to love a jelly omelette  for Sunday supper ... unless we had rice with butter and sugar.

 

Brunch here was white country toast, Cain's mayo, thinly sliced Purple Cherokee tomatoes, some Bermuda onion marmalade(brought home from Bermuda)  and local red leaf lettuce. 

John has a tomato basil wrap with turkey and some of that local lettuce as we are off for Dr appointments and getting our driver's licenses renewed - new pictures!!! WOO-HOO!!!!!!!!!

A variation on the Slow Cooked Chickpeas on Toast with Poached eggs from Ottolenghi's  Plenty More 

IMG_5968.thumb.jpg.2145edb33b5f0cdd6f5fd6eaff2da750.jpg

For ease of eating, the egg went on the chickpeas with the toast on the side instead of all piled on the toast as in the book.
