Breakfast 2021


Recommended Posts

I received a most wonderful Christmas food package from @Alleguedeand his partner. I debated whether to post it in the Christmas gifts topic but that would require me to haul everything out of the freezer to photograph it. Instead I will post it as I eat it!

I love marmalades and this one really hit the spot.

Having disgraced myself a few days ago by serving a mere five 小笼包 - xiaolongbao on a plate, I made amends this morning and did all the customary eight.

@liuzhou - Nice looking scrambled eggs!  Moist without being a sauce.  I saw someone on TV making scrambled eggs “properly” the other day and when they were done they were actually pourable. 

 

New Year’s day:

Edwards country ham and a plain unrolled omelet.  And a piece of my MIL’s “Candy Cane” pastry:

Heated in the CSO on Bake/Steam.  Still good a week later.

 

Yesterday:

Leftover ham, perfect yolks, and plenty of bread for mopping.

left over shawarma. but really i wanted to mention the hemp milk. i've been making hemp milk to drink from hemp hearts and enjoying the process. it's a little grassy but compared to something like almond or other seed / nut milks, it basically requires no straining whatsoever, which is nice; you can dump everything in a blender then a glass and be done. i added a little sweetener, nutmeg, cinnamon, and vanilla to today's.

OMG OMG OMG where's the Butter......

Oddly enough, he requested no butter on his 😳.  I, on the other hand, slathered my baguette with butter before it went in the CSO!  

 

My breakfast this morning was toast made from an incredible rye/caraway boule that a friend of Jessica's made and gifted to us:

Yesterday I spatchcocked Quail and marinated them in olive oil, garlic, fresh oregano, salt, pepper, lemon zest and hot red pepper flakes.
 
I had intended to grill them for dinner last night.

Plans changed and I grilled them this morning for Moe's breakfast.

@liamsaunt, that is one beautiful poached egg!

@Ann_T, how do you grill the quail?  Some sort of indoor set up?  Or are you really outside building a fire in the wee hours of the morning?  They look gorgeous!

Wow, I'm always impressed with Moe's breakfasts but grilling outside takes it to another level!

Oh if she did that in Oakville, Ontario instead of Vancouver, British Columbia……

Seriously I am impressed. It is a beautiful looking meal.

I hear you. I once literally shoveled through waist-high snowdrifts to grill something for my (now-) late wife when she had a hankering. I usually don't speak of it, because it smacks too much of that whole "uphill both ways in my father's hand-me-down pajamas" trope. :P
