It's too early here for rhubarb and I really wanted to make a rhubarb dessert.  So, instead I went to the best in-store bakery in town and purchased a strawberry rhubarb pie. 

Now I almost never have dessert at home because I don't usually want something else after I've had my dinner.  So what I'm going to do is have the pie for breakfast!  Hey, it's got fruit in it!

(Fruit) pie for breakfast is an honoured and long-standing tradition in my house. I reckoned it was a healthier option that most of the neighbours' kids were getting. :)

Deb's BIL's chickens are back in egg laying mode. Over easy with homemade no knead toast. I just planted zucchini in the cold frame, so I thought it was about time for a refresher course of fried zucchini.

I'm calling this breakfast "An Act of Love".

Fresh local Dungeness Crab out of the water last night. 


Two are destined for dinner. The third Moe suggested maybe Eggs Benedict? SO............

I steamed one, picked out the meat and made Eggs Benedict "Florentine" with crab.  

One  whole crab worth of meat on this plate.

Topped with a homemade Hollandaise.

Ann_T, you're killing me!  We just had some fresh crab from the Island....so sweet.

Here's DH's breakfast.  Curried scrambled eggs made with fresh homemade Madras Curry Powder and a chapati.

 Breakfast from a day or so ago. This was very good and kept me satisfied well past lunchtime.

Anytime I can avoid the need to wash more than one pan at breakfast time is a winner!

Mmmmmm - love that combination of asparagus, tomato and egg!

 

My breakfast - sweet potatoes with yogurt and cilantro-chile sauce from Diana Henry's Simple

Good combination of flavors to wake up the old taste buds xD

@blue_dolphin -- you are costing me money. I ordered Simple last night. If I like it as well as I do Deep Run Roots, I will likely take to ordering all the cookbooks into which you delve.

Bottom line - not a lot of crunch factor

These are the purple-skin/white flesh Murasaki sweet potatoes. The recipe didn't call for it but I peeled them because a few of them had some dodgy spots and it was easier to cut them out that way.  For cooking, I followed the recipe which tossed them with a little olive oil, honey, lime juice, S&P.  I cooked them in the CSO @ 350 °F and used steam-bake for the first 20 min and switched to convect-bake for another 20.  The brown edges had some nice crunch when I took them out of the oven, but they softened up before I finished the plate.  The dish was still enjoyable to eat with the warm potatoes, spicy sauce and cool, creamy yogurt but it's not a route to the perfect crispy sweet potato.

Went to the farmers' market this morning and bought lots of my favourite autumny things, so was pretty happy with my breakfast; padron peppers, sizzled in olive oil and sprinkled with flaky salt; an aged saucisson sec, heavy on the pork fat and black pepper; and these beautiful pine mushrooms, which I sautéed with garlic, Marsala, thyme and a lick of cream and ate on toast (or slightly denatured bread, my toast preference) with rosemary flowers and white pepper.

 

And a glass of very cold oloroso sherry, because I can.

Too busy to go shopping, so a simple but pleasant enough breakfast.

Home made soda bread with butter and a couple of hard boiled eggs. S+P

Brunch, I guess, as it is now noon and I'm still stuffed, was a grilled cheese sandwich on sourdough, with bacon and avocado, from the food truck at the farmers' market. These people know how to do grilled cheese; they use a combo of a good cheddar and fontina, and good sourdough, and I'm not certain how, but the bread comes out a beautifully golden crunchy-crispy. 

 

For eight bucks with the add-ins (an egg would've cost me another buck, but I declined), it's a fine brunch. And I'm still stuffed. Had a bottled mango juice with it.

Home alone breakfast indulgence ~ cinnamon pancakes.  I just made these and they are delicious, light and fluffy,  not too cinnamon-y.  Next time I might top them with fruit: bananas or apples...tasty, no?  

 

Here's the link for the recipe: http://www.thechunkychef.com/vanilla-cinnamon-buttermilk-pancakes/

Brunch (I will probably never be able to wake up early enough to cook a real breakfast -_- ):

Green "shakshuka" (it can't be a shakshuka if the sauce is not tomato based). 

Onion, garlic, oregano, thyme, pureed spinach, a little cream, roasted sweet potatoes, nutmeg, soft eggs, sumac, cumin and a touch of zaatar.
