I saw Denny's new commercial earlier today.

They just introduced "Bread Pudding French Toast" -- Gee, I wonder where they got the idea...


"There are, it has been said, two types of people in the world. There are those who say: this glass is half full. And then there are those who say: this glass is half empty. The world belongs, however, to those who can look at the glass and say: What's up with this glass? Excuse me? Excuse me? This is my glass? I don't think so. My glass was full! And it was a bigger glass!" Terry Pratchett

Spent the week in Las Vegas and although I did not cook these, I had great breakfasts at Thomas Keller's Bouchon.

Quiche Florentine

Steak Gratin - the whole eggs in the gratin were perfectly cooked with a soft yolk.

Corned Beef Hash with Poached Eggs

Pomme Frites

Boudin Blanc and Scrambled Eggs - Eggs were just a touch too tight for my taste

Chicken & Waffles - Keller's famous dish with savory chive waffles and the most succulent roast chicken I have ever had.

Of course there were numerous stops at the Bouchon bakery throughout the stay for some goodies such as:

Almond Croissant

Macaroons

Holy moley, percyn, you scared everyone away with those compelling breakfasts!

Mine was considerably more pedestrian - cabbage fried rice topped with a dollop of brinjal (eggplant relish).

Peach crisp made with my good friend Marco's harvested-yesterday Guaytambo and Melocoton peaches from his orchard, and my own vanilla ice cream. Le drool.

Very nice robirdstx. Reminds me of an Indian version of eggs with tomatoes, onion and spices.

Thanks, percyn. What spices do you use in your Indian version? I think I would like that. Sometimes, I have the egg with pico de gallo.

Usually tumeric, cumin, garlic, ginger and some onion. Some add cilantro leaves and ground coriander seeds as well.

Thank you, percyn. I will give it a try soon as I already have all of the spices on hand.

      My long-time Bullet gave up the ghost over the weekend and since we had a couple of free hours and were in the States...where the Walmarts are different from those in Canada...I went smoothie blender looking.
       
      We found a suitable Hamilton Beach 'Go Sport' Blender and brought it home.  The specs looked good and the price was just fine.
       
      HOWEVER...two major flaws in this blender which are worth noting.
       
      1.  The blender bottle opening is quite narrow and I need a modified funnel to get my ingredients into it with ease.  Rats.  OK.  I can do this.
       
      2.  And even worse.  This unit has NO protected blending blades.  That is, if you plug the unit in, put the cutting blades into the unit and turn the unit on and are being stupidly careless...as we have all been known to be...you can get your fingers cut to ribbons!!  (No, I did not do it.  Yet.)  Now, the directions do tell you THE safe way to use the blender...but they don't make any reference to the fact that you...OR MORE IMPORTANTLY, A CHILD...could massacre their fingers in this unit.  I was really surprised.  I can't recall the last electrical kitchen appliance which was so open to misuse and accident.  Almost all must have all the protective units in place before the blades will even work.   You'd have to do something truly unusual to hurt yourself using one.  (OK.  Go ahead.  Post all the exceptions to my statement.  )
       
      I post this just in case.

      Does anyone have a recipe for Fake Bacon please?
       
      I have been vegetarian now for about 3 months.  So far it is going very well and I am looking to widen my range of recipes without meat.  I am not sure that going down the path of making imitation meets is the best approach but I do enjoy vegetarian soy based sausages and mince (ground beef) -  So perhaps an imitation bacon will be good too.
       
      If you have any favourite recipes for fake bacon that you wish to share, that would be appreciated.
       
      Regards

      As far as I understand, noodles are a common breakfast dish throughout south-east Asia. Curry laksa, for example, is a breakfast noodle dish in Penang, Malaysia; commonly called curry mee by the locals. This is just one example I know of first hand, but I'm certain there are many others.
       
      Do you know of other breakfast noodle dishes? Or books on the subject?
       
      Keep in mind that I'm interested in noodle dishes specifically, not just any type of breakfast. I'll keep that broader topic for a different thread.

      Breakfast has become a problem at our house. We no longer get up at the same time and we no longer eat the same things every day for breakfast. So I have been searching for power/nutrition/energy/granola/health/power/etc bars to make for me to eat. DH doesn't eat them. Well, not at breakfast anyway.
      Recently a new cookbook, Power Hungry: The Ultimate Energy Bar Cookbook by Camilla V. Saulsbury has come out and I have started making a few of the bars in it. Some are excellent, some not wonderful, others way too sweet for me. The first section contains recipes for well-known "knock-offs". The only commercial bar we've tried is a Clif bar and both thought it was awful. I suspect that most of them are too sweet for our personal tastes. (To generalize wildly: Canadians are less addicted to sugar than Americans...more addicted to salt.)
      The book includes recipes for vegans and for folks who can't tolerate gluten. Lots of variations given with each recipe.
      I am proposing to go through the entire book of 30 recipes, making one after another, to find the ones which suit me. I'll report back on this. (Give me a purpose for surviving this horrible cold winter. ) Maybe someone else has the book, has tried some recipes, and is interested in this.
      Saulsbury also has a blog, http://powerhungry.com/ , in which she has posted some bars which are not in the book. I haven't figured out exactly which ones are repeated in the book yet.
      Should have added Europeans generally like less sugar than do Americans. Don't know about Aussies or other countries...
