Breakfast! 2018

How was it?   It always looks just too “herbie” for me but I’ve never tried it.  It has attracted my attention on more than one occasion and from more than one source. 

It was indeed very herb-y. I've also seen it in various places, been curious and had the fridge contents to make it a good idea today. I liked it with the tomato chutney - it needs a punchy accompaniment, I think. I'm glad I tried it.  The leftovers will determine whether I make it again or not.

Cucumber sandwich on my DH's bread.  Lots of homemade mayo, salt and white pepper.  I love cucumber sandwiches.  No mess, no fuss, plus it used up one of the many, many cucumbers from the garden!

It's usually indeed very herby, but it's also very adaptable, if you not sure about it, you can try your go-to frittata recipe with an addition of dill, a few more herbs and walnuts, and optionally dried cranberries. I personally like this version just as much, and find it more suitable as a breakfast. I prefer the traditional herby one as a side dish.

The first is from a couple of days ago. A seasoned burger (home ground tri-tip), on Japanese rice, tomato concasse, & a poached egg. Today's breakfast is mu usual. Oatmeal, blueberries, a bit of maple syrup, toasted pecans, & a dollop of plain Greek yogurt. The blueberry coffee cake was an added treat.

Variation on a theme: Boiled duck egg with toasted mantou bun.

Fried zucchini, a tomato from the garden and poached eggs on a snowflake roll. Fresh salsa on the fried zucchini is a winning combination. It would make a really great bar food. There will be no lunch today!

Some cured meat under the first garden tomato and tea.  That mug....there are two and no one but us are allowed to use them.  Because we bought them in 1974!!  We use them every morning for our tea.  I almost broke one a couple of years ago...that would have been a disaster .

One of my favorite breakfasts: Pineapple-mango fruit spread on buttered toast and fresh squeezed Valencia orange juice.

The first local Jersey tomatoes came in this week.

Toasted Dave's Killer bread, MIRACLE WHIP, tomatoes that were lightly salted.

Can there be a better breakfast on a rainy Sunday morning?

LOL Well for me, "a better breakfast" would involve dropping the Miracle Whip in favor of real mayo. But I understand the sentiment. :)

Nah. That's what happens when people who have no idea about tartar sauce start making it for the tourists. :)

 

Seriously, when I was a kid I knew NOBODY who ate tartar sauce. Fish 'n' chips came with vinegar or ketchup, and that was pretty much it.

OK  that explains it...

I grew up with vinegar or ketchup and Worchestershire for the fish only.

That's what my English stepdad said about tartar sauce in Britain.  He left in the 1960's.  But when we went in 2011, all our fish came with it.  He was surprised.

I'm not surprised he was surprised. Growing up in Britain in the 50's, 60's even 70's tartar sauce was unheard of- Real mayonnaise was almost unknown,  never mind pimped  up mayonnaise!

 

I don't think I tasted tartar sauce until the 80s and even then it was unusual 'foreign food'.

Now, I make it fairly regularly in a place where almost no one knows it. Their loss.

Creamed chipped beef (Stouffer's) on Texas toast:

OMG this looks good.  I haven't had chipped beef in forever.

 

I'm having a favorite of mine in the summer--cheap bologna on a lightly toasted bun with glorious tomatoes and homemade mayo.
