Yesterday:

IMG_6046.thumb.jpg.b5db132b6ac59877fca881178fd266e8.jpg

Fruit salad (mango, pineapple, blackberries dressing with lime juice), IP hard-cooked eggs and toast – one sliced adorned with my beloved Little Scarlett strawberry preserves. 

 

This morning:

IMG_6059.jpg.4875d385e02a365ad5605a2a9c44fb50.jpg

Classic – tomatoes on toast.  One of the few weekday breakfasts my mother could get me to eat.  She was still making them for me up until the time she finally moved out from her apartment.

Julia Turshen calls this An Egg in a Cheese Skirt in her book, Simply Julia.  I prefer Frico Fried Egg.  Either way, it's fun!

Had the egg with Walnut "Sausage" Patties and Sweet Potato Hash Browns, also from that book.

In my hands, the sweet potatoes were "hash" rather than "hash browns" and the patties need a major seasoning adjustment to boost the umami level.  Should I make them again, I'd up the amount of sage, add plenty of black pepper and try Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce or some of that TJ's mushroom umami seasoning in lieu of some or all of the salt.

When you bring appetizing to your in-laws...

 

IMG_4237.thumb.jpeg.12fe10e39d64526ea9802d87c3663724.jpeg

 

and that brunch appetizing is from Russ & Daughters, always secret away a schtickle to bring home and have for breakfast the following day.

 

Gaspé nova not lox, their famous, addictive whitefish/kippered salmon salad, smoked sable (aka black cod).

Capers (not caper berries), cucumber and tomato. Not shown - the bagels and cream cheese.

Spaghetti with bottarga from Marcella's Essentials of Classic Italian Cooking

Being breakfast, I considered adding a poached egg, but why mess with perfection!

 


One of my favorite pastas, from one of my favorite books, from one of my favorite authors. 
 

What a treat it must’ve been to have been a student of hers in her NYC apartment.

Fried rice doesn't need eggs. Many fried rice classics here have no eggs.

My kind of breakfast.   No egg needed.

Oyster balls in fish stock with garlic, ginger, chilli and Shanghai greens (which you probably call baby bok choy, but no one in China does. Baby bok choy in China is something else!)

Actually the green that we call baby bok choy does not look like that. It has very white stems and much more crinkly leaves. If I’m not mistaken we call the one that you illustrate Shanghai bok choy.

I think it depends on one's location and type of market. An Asian customer who is familiar or anyone who is, no need for names. In my experience the white stemmers are labeled differently. The bags of "baby" are that pretty green. Love them all though I prefer the greener on a visual bias.

If you mean the first image, then yes it's sometimes known as Shanghai Bok Choy but more commonly Shanghai Qing meaning Shanghai Greens. 

 

Yet I see it called Baby Bok Choy all the time on the interwebs and magazines etc. 

 

The second vegetable I showed is what is called Baby Bok Choy here. 

 

There are several brassicas with white stems and crinkly leaves, soo I'm not sure which one you mean. 

 

I mentioned this in more detail in the Chinese Vegetables Illustrated topic from a while back.

This. The large central image.
 

As the baby bok choy became smaller and smaller I began renaming it as neonatal bok choy and finally foetal bok choy. 😂

That is a variant on the Shanghai Greens I posted. A Cantonese variant. They are the same plant as I posted - Brassica rapa subsp. chinensis. Never referred to as Baby Bok Choy, here, as I  said.

Chinese vegetables are a minefield when it comes to names.

I assumed that @IowaDee was looking forward to 10 more years of stunning breakfast photos before offering that particular wish - as am I!
