Most weekend mornings here on the gulf coast are sunny, yet cool. These days, I have two housemates (a married couple) and a their dog, who is part wolf.
Typically my favorite breakfast goes like this:
I fire up the grill next to the pool, and lay on some thick slices of pepper bacon. In the mean time, one of my house mates has made coffee, which he brings me as I keep the fire hot enough to cook the bacon, yet not so hot that it catches fire.
The dog stands next to me, wagging his tail and expressing his pleasure at the wonderful smells coming from the grill
The other housemate is in the kitchen frying eggs.
We've gotten our timing down so the eggs and bacon are done at the same time ... we sit next to the pool, eating fried eggs, grilled bacon an sipping coffee, and usually some fresh squeezed fruit juice and talk about how the week has gone, or perhaps nothing at all.
The dog, of course, is tossed pieces of bacon, and usually gets an egg of his own.
I'm sure cold pizza from the night before qualifies too, as well as stale left over beer, just as long as there are no cigarette butts floating around in it...mmmmmmmmmmmmm reminds me of my college days.
Sounds cool but why does your housemate have to stay indoors? You could just bring out a frying pan and the eggs to cook outdoors along with the bacon, then relaxation for both, plus the lucky dog gets more enticing smells and can choose his egg !
I am with you! Except I prefer banana on top, not cut and laid there but crushed and spread thick. Yum. There's a place in the Blue Mountains that makes the absolute best pancakes in the world. Yes, they do have maple syrup and, if you prefer, strawberries and cream. Great art to check out and you can't go past the Three Sisters for something spectacular.
For lunch of a Sunday there's a nice place in the middle of the Royal National Park, NSW that has the most wonderful apple pie. It is actually made there so it is always fresh. What's more on a good spring day when there's lots of wind about you can watch the hang-gliders in action while you eat.
There's a place in town that has a jazz buffet brunch on Sundays. They have the most awesome crab eggs benedict and you can get just about anything you want whipped into an omelette or wrapped up in a crape. It's so yummy. I love going there Sunday mornings with my girls or my husband to enjoy the music and mimosas.
On weekends, when I have guests, especially, it's a full buffet of waffles, scambled "dirty" eggs with all kinds of stuff in them, fresh fruit, juice, bacon (and maybe sausage), sometimes oatmeal, and whatever else suits our tastebuds in the moment. Sometimes if guests are showing up, they pot luck it with us. Recognizing calories at such gatherings is not allowed.
Over the holidays, I make pumpkin waffles. Total rock-the-house hit.
What is everyone's favorite breakfast hangover cure?I ask because I had a famous hangover this AM after watching England beat France in the six nations rugby series.My breakfast of choice - Biscuits and sausage gravy....
