Had some leftover pizzza dough...Preheated the oven while I did morning things, then threw it on the stone, with lots of fresh thyme (one of the herbs that's growing well), EVOO, S&P...A minute before it was done, dropped an egg on the middle....Mmmm, pizza crustiness to dip into egg yolk....

Rachel Ray, are you making your own dough?
It is better to have beans and bacon in peace than cakes and ale in fear.

Leftover cold sichuan noodles from Grand Sichuan (I have jet lag and woke at 5:30, ravenous). Two mugs of very strong Taylors of Harrogate Irish Breakfast tea with 1% milk which I prefer in tea to whole milk. I am also not a a natural breakfast eater but I am a caffeine junkie and all that tea doesn't sit well on an empty stomach. My favorite breakfasts are a boiled egg or fruit with yogurt or cottage cheese. But leftovers are marvelous from time to time. Especially spicy Chinese leftovers. :P

I like the original Puffed Kashi best, with a sprinkle of Penzey's Vietnamese cinnamon. Although a few days ago I almost sprinkled it with ground cumin.

Treasured bakery is closed for "vacation" for two weeks, so crumb-cake-less. :(
Inbetween crying jags, managed some leftover bison meatballs.

Really, people will tell you all kinds of garbage. Don't believe it.

I made a pot of Nirgili tea, and toasted a piece of what the hypermarché hereabouts calls, for no earthly calculus that I can reckon, "English Muffin Bread." I rubbed it with a piece of garlic, grated some grana Padano on top, and ran it under the broiler till it was bubbly. Ate it with some canned yellow roma tomatoes flavored with garlic, basil, and oregano. Drank my tea with milk, as my grandmother taught me to. :D

Sidebar economic note. Had to take a cab to the doctor's office (beyond the end of the municipal bus run) and passed a popular "Family Restaurant" that had a sign out front, "Breakfast Special, Toast, Coffee, Bacon, Eggs, Hash-Browns, $2.99." Paris hotel breakfast of juice, coffee, croissant, confiture, about 8 €, generally. I mean at the cheap places where such as I stay. :(

(A "Family Restaurant" in these parts opens at six in the morning, closes at ten at night, and serves three meals a day, "Breakfast at any time." The Family part means you ain't gonna get nothin' alcoholic or healthy.) :unsure:


Stephen Wright said he went to one of these places and ordered breakfast in the renaissance. :ph43r: :ph43r:
Cambridge University Professor of Electrical Engineering, Sir Charles Oatley, in October, 1948, along with his student Dennis McMullan, began the research that led to the production of the first scanning electron microscope in 1965.

I thought you'd want to know.

Liza, where do you go for crumb cake?

Per the recommendation of N. Gatti, B&W on Main Street in Hackensack. Home of the heavy crumb ™

Sliced heirloom tomato with EVOO and seasalt and baby basil. Some cheese from Cato Corner. Slice of Ciabatta.
