So enticing in this warmer weather.  i have wondered - do you wake up inspired, assess ingredients available in the morning, or do you plan night before. My goofiness is planning the meals as my "counting sheep" method.

I'm often tempted by the recipes I see for homemade baked beans, however, I then recall just how good the canned products are and use B&M or Bush's instead.

I have fig envy as well. About 45 minutes away from me, there is a large Italian population and in those neighbourhoods, almost every home has a huge fig tree. I sometimes see them in a market near me but they are about 10.00 for 6 figs. I just have to make do with fig preserves or dried figs.

Excellent.

I've never had cold baked beans but the idea is not unappealing to me. I like leftover pizza cold and have been known to eat leftover pasta cold as well.

I tried years ago to make them from scratch.  Never came out as good as canned.

I inherited my Nana's bean pot and have made homemade a few times. They were definitely good, but time consuming. They also call for salt pork which is not easy to find in these parts.

Could go either way.  Sometimes there's something I've been wanting to try and I know it's best to get to it in the AM.  Or maybe I can hear tasty leftovers to calling me from inside the fridge and feel obliged to answer them 🙃Or, I fart around until I need something quick and easy.  Today, I had in mind to make the grilled asparagus, fried bread, poached egg and aged balsamic vinegar from Thomas Keller's Ad Hoc At Home to use up some asparagus.  Then I saw the croutons were supposed to fry for ~ 20 min and my bread was in the freezer and needed to thaw out first so turned to the figs, which also needed to be used and made a nice accompaniment to my coffee. Thus sustained, I moved on to the croutons slow fried in garlic oil and am now enjoying my previously intended breakfast, even if it's pretty much lunchtime!

I'd really like a fig tree but my landscape person said they were too big and between the birds and rats, it's hard to get a good crop so I pay up at the farmers market.  They're usually $5 for what I'd call a pint basket, generally more than 6, but depends on the size.  They're usually ripe and ready to eat and since I got these guys on Thursday, they were more than ready!

I would definitely not turn my nose up at either breakfast but that Thomas Keller one is killing me! 
So happy to hear, just as I suspected, that your  meals are not rigidly planned but that within reason you go with the flow and adapt as needed.

Your breakfast is amazing. I had a slice of cold pizza that my nephew brought home last night. Not complaining, I like cold pizza, but it didn't hold a candle to your sumptuous repast.

Bought figs at the farmers market Saturday. Debating what to do with them. Hard to beat cut most of the way through from the stem in quarters, filled with blue cheese, broiled and drizzled with a little honey. Or I may make a fig upside down cake.

Excellent.

 

Currently eating Aplenty Carolina Gold BBQ Beans (eG-friendly Amazon.com link), an Amazon store brand.  Out of the can.  I like these, fairly mustard forward flavor, underlying spicy tang and still sweet, but not overly.    The reviews are love or hate it seems.   We all like strong mustard in the house, so maybe it makes sense we really like this version of baked beans.  I only bought 1 can to try, but I am adding to the next Fresh order for a couple more cans in the pantry.  

 

Edit: It would be a kicky breakfast with these and a couple fried eggs and toast.

Blistered shishitos on avocado crema with Aleppo pepper & a poached egg

The pepper/crema business is from Susan Spungen's Open Table. The egg was added so I could call it breakfast!

@rotuts – I love B&M beans!  For some reason, I’ve always thought that the jarred ones tasted best.  Being influenced by my English stepdad, I’ve have had to heat them up and put them on top of some heavily buttered toast 😉!

 

@kayb – thank you, ma’am!  It wasn’t Benton’s – it was Appleton Farms and we just got it at Kroger.  It was delicious, but maybe not quite fatty enough.  It made very little grease in the sheet pan when I roasted it. 

 

@blue_dolphin – those fig crostatas are amazing looking.

 

We’ve been without a refrigerator since Saturday (long story – thought it was gone, but it looks like the door was open all Friday night), so I treated myself to a good breakfast this morning.  A grilled fried egg sandwich and sausage patties:

There were a couple of good, gooey yolks in the middle.  I haven’t yet perfected @blue_dolphin‘s method of spreading out the fried egg yolk yet!  This is my favorite way to have an egg sandwich.  Grilling it like a grilled cheese gives you a nice, buttery crunch on the outside and a soft, pillowy bite on the inside.

You should operate a bed and breakfast! Your breakfasts are alway so original and appetizing.

i agree 100%!

 

Breakfast this morning was ham and cheese on an English muffin and some watermelon:

Watermelon is one of my very favorite fruits (and the only melon I care for) and I'm always sad when summer ends and the good stuff is gone!

I would love this! Might have to cook extra green and yellow beans tonight!

We went up to Washington DC on Saturday to celebrate Mr. Kim's birthday.  It was a day early, but we had duties at church on Sunday.  He wanted to tour the Shrine of the Immaculate Conception. On the way up, we breakfasted on some apple cider doughnuts that I got on Friday at the produce stand:
