@Okanagancook's post three or four back inspired my breakfast this morning. Sadly, my bacon isn't home made, but the bread is.

I haven't had one of these for some time due to a dead oven, so no bread. Oven has been replaced and I'm back in business.

I like my bacon crisp (near burnt.)

I made chicken liver pate yesterday. The forecast is for snow all day today. I briefly entertained the idea of getting the bottle of Akvavit from the freezer downstairs, but reluctantly dismissed it, as I may be called upon to operate the snow blower later. After that......we'll see.

A friend visiting for the weekend, so I pulled out some stops for a Saturday breakfast: latkes, both with sour cream and caviar and with apple butter; sausage (my apologies to my Orthodox friends!); scrambled eggs. Plenty of good coffee. Followed by a nap.

My apologies for singularly unattractive plating and photography. I was HUNGRY.

Chicken liver pate, and marinated mushroom and Swiss cheese toasty on a French baguette. The reflective snow on the ground and in the trees made the morning light especially bright. IMG_1471.thumb.JPG.fab8695404a133d5222cbd3d3e9048ae.JPG

So good was the CLP that my breakfast was appended by a few more baguette toasts with a bit more. Once again, I thought about the akvavit in the freezer, as it would have made a nice complement, but I have plans to visit the local brewery for some growler refills today. Clear headed thinking prevailed.

Curious, does Allan nibble on the plate or does he drag off what he wants?

He just nibbles from the plate.  I make sure that what he gets has no dairy.

Two poached eggs on pumpernickel toast just hit the spot.

Most amazing!
All I got was ONE poached egg, no toast, but a lovely sprinkle of toasted ginger and sesame seeds - a shaker from Winners.

My actual breakfast was some crusty bread, slathered with warmed leftover tomato sauce (Marcella Hazan's recipe with butter & onion) and nibbles of parm. 

Now, we've moved on to dessert:

A mug of hot black coffee, stirred with a cinnamon stick that spent last night soaking up the remains of the Réveillon cocktail that went into my eggnog popsicles

If the popsicles gave anyone a chill, I hope this image will warm you up :D!

I don't understand. Remains of a cocktail? The only cocktail remains I am acquainted with are empty glasses and I tend to avoid them for breakfast.
