I bought the bread at a local bakery and they incorporate a generous amount of bacon in the loaf, made with a Sonora/Red Fife whole grain blend that they grow and mill.  

There's a picture of the unadorned toast back in this post

Next time, I'll try to capture it sizzling so deliciously when it comes out of the CSO!

Cottage cheese (unsalted) with a little honey goat cheese mixed in, chopped apple. The goat cheese was sweeter than I had anticipated and fairly crumbly, so I was trying to think of alternate ways to use it. It worked well in the mix.

a quarter of a small quiche Lorraine I picked up at my local Shoprite.  For 3.99 USD it gives me two breakfasts or a breakfast and two snacks and is better than I could make myself.

YEAH!!!!! Pears to go with that blue cheese.  

As a side note - @HungryChris have you ever tried Ewe's Blue from Old Chatham Sheepherding company?  It's really tasty and I also use it to make a killer blue cheese dressing.

No, I never have, but I am always on the lookout for good blue cheese. There is not a great selection around here and I have yet to try mail order.

Continuing that sweet theme, I made myself a small but decadent cup of salted caramel sipping chocolate to take the chill off the early morning but the real reason was to use these cups:

IMG_0643.thumb.jpg.88b9a4fac02a377ad969ea9316e3081e.jpg

I recently spent a week back at my late mother's house sorting through things.  These little cups and saucers from a Limoges chocolate set were among the items that I packed in an abundance of bubble wrap and shipped to myself at ridiculous expense.  They arrived yesterday, none the worse for the experience.  

I don't know what happened to the graceful pitcher that went with them but I remember eyeing the set in my grandmother's china cabinet when I was a little girl.  The cups were almost child sized and I was absolutely enchanted to learn that they weren't for coffee or tea but for CHOCOLATE - it was something out of a fairy tale!  I never saw anyone use them but I'm going to.   Can I interest anyone in stopping by for a hot toddy?

That's a great invite, those cups are lovely.  Will Michael and Patrick be joining us?  Oh wait, we don't live near each other!  Salted caramel chocolate - how do you make this?

I made it the laziest way - 3T from a packet of salted caramel sipping chocolate from Trader Joes stirred into 1/3 cup hot milk 🙃!  They sold it in a gift tin around the holidays with three flavors and I think they sold this flavor on its own as well.

Beautiful cup and saucer.  I love things like this.

OH MY GOODNESS!!!!  I adore violets.  I used to have a violet cup and saucer until the cup shattered.  My bridal bouquet consisted or white violets, grandmother violets and blue violets along with lily-of-the-valley we picked from the side yard of my mom's house almost 37 years ago.

@blue_dolphin - that is a beautiful cup and saucer. I have my grandmother's chocolate set! I always wondered whether it was REALLY for hot chocolate, as she said, because I'd never heard of chocolate sets from anyone but her. Guess I know now. 

 

Let's make a deal: I'll come by for hot toddy next time I'm in the area, and you come up for an equally decadent chocolate drink at our place!

After a short night (flight was delayed and we arrived at the hotel at 3.00am) the first breakfast in Colombo, Sri Lanka.

 

All sorts of sambols, sauces, black chicken curry, fish curry, idli. Followed by a masala dosa and buffalo milk curds with treacle. Very satisfied ... and back to bed 😉

And for today's brunch, a dish I wanted to make for a long while.

I took advantage of what is likely one of the last chilli days of this year to make a kubaneh.

 

Kubaneh is a jewish Yemenite bread, which much like jachnun (another Yemenite pastry), is baked all night long in order to be eaten on Shabbat. Many jewish dishes from across the world are similar in being cooked over night to be served on Saturday - cholent (Europe), tbbit (Iraq), skhinna (Morocco) , kugel (Europe).

 

The kubaneh is made of a simple sweetened bread dough, with butter rolled into it. It is lightly flavored with fenugreek and nigella.

After being slowly baked all night, it develops a butterscotch flavor, without being sweet.

Along with it I also baked eggs, which together with zchug and mashed tomatoes are a customary eaten together.

Some ouzo subs for the more traditional arak.

I also had some with yogurt and honey.

If your wheater still allows, consider making it - very easy to make.

      ALMOND CUSCUS WITH CRANBERRIES AND PINEAPPLE
       
      I hate getting up in the morning. My household knows that before 8 o'clock I'm unbearable, and because almost every day I wake up much earlier, I tend to be unbearable more frequently than I want. Every extra five minutes of sleep is priceless, so I appreciate a good breakfast that is not too complicated and is quick to prepare.

      Recently, I have been preparing breakfast with groats and flakes. This time I chose cuscus. This product is a cross between pasta and groats, and it doesn't need long to prepare. It is enough to add hot water or milk and leave for a few minutes. I added some fresh pineapple, cranberries and banana. I spiced it up with some hot chili pepper .

      Ingredients (for 2 people)
      125g of cuscus
      400ml of almond milk
      1 tablespoon of honey
      1 teaspoon of vanilla essence
      2 slices of fresh pineapple
      1 teaspoon of minced chili pepper
      150g of fresh cranberries
      2 tablespoons of brown sugar
      1 banana
      4 tablespoons of flaked almonds

      Wash the cranberries and put them into a pot. Add two tablespoons of water and the brown sugar. Boil, stirring gently until the cranberries burst and the sauce has thickened. Boil the almond milk with the vanilla essence. Pour the milk onto the cuscus and leave for 5-7 minutes. Slice the banana and roast the almond flakes. Peel the pineapple and dice it. Mix the pineapple, chili pepper and honey. Add the pineapple to the cuscus and mix it in. Put the mixture into two bowls. Put the cranberries and banana on the top and sprinkle with the almond flakes.

      Enjoy your meal!

      LUNCH FROM THE JAR, I.E. LAYERED SALAD IN THE OFFICE
       
      Most of us take lunch boxes to the office. Some lucky people can warm their food up at work The rest have to eat sandwiches. Sandwiches are great, but even if we absolutely love them we could get fed up with them in the end. Regardless of where we work we can save the situation with salads. Every day we can prepare a different one and we have an entirely new lunch. If we also take an attractive dish, we have something that is not only tasty but also glamorous.

      I would like to share with you the recipe for a salad which looks equally as beautiful as it is yummy. The chickpeas and groats make it a satisfying and balanced meal, after which we won't be hungry. I think that if you prepare your lunch in the morning and plan to eat it at lunchtime, we should keep the salad and the dip separately. Otherwise, after a few hours in the jar, we have an unappetising dish with squishy lettuce, which isn't what we want, is it?

      Ingredients (for 2 people)
      1 beetroot
      200g of tinned chickpeas
      100g of bulgur
      1 carrot
      1 fresh green pepper
      4 lettuce leaves
      200g of natural yoghurt
      handful of minced chives
      1 small chili pepper
      salt and pepper

      Clean the beetroot and bake or boil it. Grate the beetroot and carrot. Cut the pepper into thin strips. Boil the bulgur in salty water. Arrange in layers in a jar the beetroot, chickpeas, pepper, bulgur, carrot and lettuce. Dice the chili pepper. Mix the natural yoghurt with the chives and chili pepper. Spice it up with salt and pepper. Add the dip to the salad just before serving.

      I developed this recipe for a friend who wound up with many cans of Solo brand apricot filling and was wondering what to make with them. I adapted this recipe from Rose Levy Beranbaum's Sour Cream Coffee Cake, found on page 90 of the Cake Bible. The apricot filling works it way down through the cake and winds up near the bottom of the pan, making an attractive top later when the cake is inverted. Please use some sort of ring pan that holds at least 9 cups. You may substitute butter for the toasted almond oil, but remember that the oil adds flavor. I specifically developed this recipe with the home cook in mind, regular salted butter, and AP flour work well here. To reduce the sodium, use unsalted butter.  
       
      Ingredients
      113 grams (1 stick) salted butter
      26 grams toasted almond oil
      200 grams sugar
      6 grams vanilla extract
      4 egg yolks
      160 grams regular sour cream (do not use low fat or fat free)
      50 grams almond meal
      175 grams all-purpose flour
      2 1/2 grams baking powder
      2 1/2 grams baking soda
      12 ounces (1 can) Solo Apricot Filling
       
      12 Servings
      Preheat the oven to 350°
      Spray a 9+ cup tube or Bundt pan with non-stick spray or grease with an oil & soy lecithin blend.
       
      Lightly toast the almond meal in a frying pan on the stove top until it has a light beige color and has a mild fragrance. Allow to cool.
       
      Cream together the butter, oil, and sugar. Add the vanilla and egg yolks, mix until the mixture is even and creamy. Add the sour cream and mix well. Add the cooled almond flour and mix well.
       
      Sift together the flour, baking powder and baking soda. Add the dry ingredients to the liquid mixture and mix until it everything is evenly incorporated. Do not overmix the batter.
       
      Place 2/3 of the batter evenly in the prepared pan. Place the apricot filling in an even layer on top, keeping a small space between the filling and the pan's edges. Place the remaining batter on top and smooth to create a relatively even surface.
       
      Bake for approximately 50 minutes at 350° or until the top is dark brown and springs back to a light touch.
       
      Allow to cool for 15 minutes. Invert the pan onto a serving plate. Cool and serve. Be cautious about serving this hot, as the apricot filling can cause serious burns. When fully cooled, cover or wrap in plastic wrap to store. Will keep for several days in a cool, dry place.

      Omelette with courgette and tomato salsa.
       
      Today I added a bit of chili pepper to tomato-basil salsa. Because it was quite spicy I decided to add it to a mild dish. I prepared an omelette with courgette and goat cheese. The salsa added an excellent piquancy to it. I recommend this dish for a fast and light meal.

      Ingredients:
       
      omelette
      3 eggs
      150g of courgette
      3-4 slices of goat cheese
      2 tablespoons of milk
      1 tablespoon of flour
      1 tablespoon of butter
      salt and pepper
       
      salsa
      2 tomatoes
      3 tablespoons of minced basil
      quarter of an onion
      2 cloves of garlic
      half a chili pepper
      3 tablespoons of olive oil
      2 tablespoons of lemon juice
      1 teaspoon of honey
       
      Start by preparing the salsa. Cube the tomato and dice the garlic, onion and chili pepper. Mix the vegetables together. Make a sauce with the olive oil, lemon juice and honey. Add it to the vegetables and mix it in. Leave in the fridge.
      Slice the courgette very thin. Whisk the eggs with the milk and add the flour. Spice it up with salt and pepper. Melt the butter in a pan. Pour half the egg mass into it and fry for a while at medium heat. Arrange half of the courgette slices on top along with the slices of goat cheese and the rest of the courgette. Pour the rest of the egg mass onto it and fry it. When the eggs have congealed, turn the omelette upside down and fry for a few seconds. Serve at once with the tomato salsa.

      Enjoy your meal!
