Exactly my reaction when she said it!

I'm intrigued. My Scot great gran said (phonetically) Ware no chap, ware thrufty. As I child I had no idea what she was saying, but once I was literate, it became apparent. Warms my heart just to say it.

I would love your biscuits and gravy.

That plate was washed down with a bacon infused bloody mary that was garnished with a slice of bacon. The waiter commented on my consistency.

Have you tried the bacon  flavored vodka?

Yesterday, I made Connie & Maryanna's Chimichurri from the Zuni Cafe Cookbook and decided to follow the header note suggestion to fry eggs in it

Put a bit more of the chimichurri on top.  Very good.

@blue_dolphin – what was it that made it too salty?  It looks beautiful and perfectly cooked, so I hope you try again.

 

Saturday:

We’re already getting good pears this year!

 

Post church brunch at a favorite diner.  I had eggs Benedict:

I always have a hard time turning this down.  This was excellent – a really good hollandaise and perfectly poached eggs.  Mr. Kim had a pastrami and Swiss:

Which I would probably not have taken a chance on.  They call themselves a diner, but the vibe is really more café.  I would have been wrong.  It was surprisingly good.  Tender and juicy and such good flavor.  And we loved that it was a normal sized portion.  Neither of us care for those fist-sized gobs of meat between two puny pieces of rye. 

 

This morning:

It was a frozen item from Trader Joe's and most pre-made foods like that are saltier than I prefer.  Listed at 300 mg sodium/serving, it wasn't awful or inedible.  I just didn't want to accent it with even saltier things like the olives and feta. 

 

Today, I had a BLT+A

Yesterday's breakfast was something called Exceptional Scrambled Eggs from Alex Guarnaschelli's book Cook with Me.   It uses soy sauce to season the eggs and crème fraîche to add richness.  They tasted fine but the soy sauce turned them an unpleasant khaki color.  I should really post them in the regrettable foods topic but I'm too lazy to look for it, so here you go.  Squeamish types should look away.

I nibbled on the toast for quite a while before I could make myself sample the eggs.  As I said, they taste fine but eeeeew - they don't look so good!
