Breakfast! 2018


Recommended Posts

Yesterday's breakfast was this cinnamon rolls that Mr. Kim brought home from our favorite/local doughnut place:

The plate it is sitting is a dinner sized one.  It was still tender and flaky this morning.

 

This morning was waffles, sage sausage and bananas:

Those waffles are frozen.  One of life’s little adjustments to having my mom living with us.  She likes a big breakfast every morning and she actually likes them.  Nothing like scratch, but not too terrible.  They are what i grew up on, after all.

Very early breakfast. 5.30 am.

 

Pork and shiitake wontons* with black pepper and sriracha sauce. Bad lighting, but no natural light available until around 6 am.

 

Off to catch a train.

 

*  I always keep a supply in the freezer for emergencies. They cook from frozen in just 2 minutes, so really useful when you are in a hurry (or too damn lazy to do anything else).

Nice posts.   Our standard breakfast has been raw oats with berries, nuts  and almond milk.  Splurges with egg based breakfasts.     

Mine is steel-cut oats, usually with raisins. The bog-standard egg breakfast with toast, some form of cured pork and (perhaps) potatoes leaves me feeling bloated and greasy until mid-morning, and then ravenous until lunch.

Mine is a batch made meal to be eaten all week at work - lol.  I envy people that are with it in the morning enough to get breakfasts like these!!

I make up five mornings' worth of oatmeal at a time (because steel-cut oats take a while to cook, and I'm not fond of the quick oats anymore). In the morning I heat it in the microwave while making my tea and my GF's coffee, and then I'm good to go.

I have run out of regular bread to accompany breakfast, but luckily I had one large mantou steamed bread bun. Sliced it laterally to resemble a slice of bread and put my medium boiled duck egg on it. Applied a second slice as a lid. Ate.

Those peaches looks soooo good.  

 

Thanks.  They were excellent!  These were "June Lady," apparently running a little late this year. From Tenerelli Orchards where they grow a slew of varieties that ripen from the end of June into November with the latest variety, "Autumn Lady."  My favorite, "Oh Henry" comes sometime mid-season.

Today's breakfast was 2 ears of corn.  Yesterday, I made Grilled Corn with Alla Diavola Butter from Six Seasons.  The header notes suggest serving the corn with several of the compound butters in the book so that's what I did.

Not-grilled corn with Cacio e Pepe butter and Pecorino.

Peppery and delicious.  A couple of those big chunks of peppercorn certainly woke up my taste buds!

 

Not-grilled corn with Pickled Vegetable Butter:

This one looked pretty but I'd just as soon have a dish of pickles on the side.

Scrapple, pan sautéed (in ramp compound butter) 

Doubt you could even tempt me with this. Seems like a shameful waste of lovely butter. But then what do I know?

Ah so. I suspected you would properly curate that butter, but I did read it  that you had sauteed that other stuff in there.  I feel much better knowing the truth.

It's hot and humid here and I am in the process of trying to move a pile of firewood before the heavy rains in the forecast arrive and  taking breaks in the A/C between stints. Maybe I should be taking longer and more frequent periods inside to recover my faculties.

Kuku Sabzi (Persian vegetable & herb omelet) from Tartine All Day with tomato chutney and fresh tomato

I used Swiss chard and arugula for the greens and cilantro, parsley, dill, basil and mint for the herbs.

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.
