Breakfast Bliss

Sir Beads and I have always enjoyed an occasional breakfast at a restaurant.

Now that he’s retired, we’re going to make it a regular thing –

but maybe not more than once a week!


Let me explain . . .

We decided it would be fun to try something different, so we did a little research and found a café we’d never visited before. The reviews were so positive; we could hardly wait to go!

“How was it?”, you ask?

Well, all I can say is “wow”! We were not disappointed. In fact, it was the best breakfast-out we’ve ever had. 🙂

Home fries to die for, fluffy scrambled eggs, perfectly crisp bacon, and marble wheat toast!

Light-as-a-feather pancakes with special maple syrup, too!

(Don’t worry; we scooped 80% of that butter off the pancakes before it could melt. No sense in clogging the old arteries entirely!

I think you can see why we’re only going once a week, though. 😉


Do you enjoy an occasional breakfast out?



Breakfast of Champions

You probably remember I mentioned I’m not very good about eating breakfast on Monday through Friday.

I am however a big fan of breakfast on the weekend! We usually sleep a little later then, especially on Saturdays, and are often ravenous by the time we get to the table. There’s more time to be leisurely about it so we like a hot meal – there’s no cereal on weekends (just like there’s no crying in baseball!). 😉

This Saturday, we had one of my favorite things . . . home fries!!! YUMMY!!!!

I must admit I’ve never met a potato I didn’t love. Ask me to choose between cake and potatoes and there is no contest. The spuds win hands down.

Don’t these look good???

Just potatoes, onions, salt, pepper and a little butter for cooking them. The kitchen smelled wonderful! Luckily, there are still leftovers!

What are home fries without eggs?

(Don’t worry; this is when they first hit the pan. They will be cooked longer; we like them “over easy”.)

Every once and a while, we have steak with our eggs. This was one of those days.

The little meat thermometers work like a charm.

The eggs were cooked in the steak drippings for extra flavor. And with the addition of some lovely, sweet, orange slices, this was more brunch than breakfast. It sure was delicious! 😀
