Breakfast!

Recommended Posts

I try to save drippings whenever I roast a chicken (assuming I don't need the drippings for the roasted chicken preparation).

 

So this morning I took a spoon of solidified chicken drippings, heated in a pan, threw in some freshly chopped parsley, and scrambled some eggs in it. The chicken fat was full of flavor - garlicky, a little lemony, herby...great.

 

Ate with a piece of lightly toasted ciabatta from Balthazar (bought last evening) with Ben's Butter, and a sliced heirloom tomato from Eckerton at the greenmarket.

 

Coffee blend these days is Cafe du Monde and the Agata & Valentina house blend mixed together.

I had a cafe latte.

 

 

Then at 11:30 I ate around five little dried-shrimp-with-chile-and-rice-paper-wrapper snacks from the jar on my coworker's desk. They were very moreish.

Today I had toasted sourdough topped with mozzarella, roasted red peppers, fleur de sel and basil.

 

Coffee is Kenya AA from Fairway.

omni - "moreish," as in "very easy to eat more." They were quite delightfully crunchy. ;)

 

They were also quite Chinese-Malaysian. Apparently the chile is what makes them non-traditionally Chinese.

Waitrose organic muesli (very boring) with lots and lots of raspberries and blueberries. Orange juice. Monmouth Coffee House coffee - can't remember which sort H bought.

Try the Dorset Farmer (or whatever it's called) muesli next time you're in Waitrose. They have different variants, and it's not at all bad. I like the high-fibre version, it's pleasingly toasty.

I know the one you mean. Will do. Thanks, Adam.

Nor am I, but I force myeslf whenever possible. I really don't like eating first thing, but if I don't, at some stage of the morning I end up feeling like I could eat a scabby horse.

 

The inevitable upshot of this is a bacon butty run at about ten o'clock. Which is very tasty, but is the death of all my good intentions.

Smoked trout w/ sliced tomatoes.

 

Coffee is (ahem!) WNYC Radio Roast that is beaten beyond recognition with the addition of sugar, vanilla coffee creamer and milk.
