Sunday Brekkie!!

… at 4 o’clock! my weekend brekkie is my first meal of the day; i make no apologies! oven roasted turkey, havarti, cremini ‘shrooms, omelette. bacon w/ blackened rösti hash browns… 12 grain toast too!! today, life is GOOD!!



my perfect omelette obsession!

… I’ve had it for years. It’s an ongoing, anal thing of mine, lol! Starts w/ the best ingredients! I’m partial to mushroom and cheese for fillings … cremini, and anything Swiss is my absolute favourite (and fresh thyme from my garden too – sadly, am still weeks away)! AND, don’t compromise; you MUST use the best/freshest eggs you can get! Whole Foods always fits the bill. Here’s my haul y’all!

Brown Eggs from Hens on Green Grass




organic cremini mushrooms


cave aged Gruyere


hey, don’t forget buying the best bacon


proof of my omelette obsession; a new pan purchase – Zwilling! Zweet!!

1.eggs scrambling 2.loaded with lotsa good stuff 3.carefully slid and folded from pan to plate so top meets bottom

My best attempt avoiding the “O” word in my title, lol. Can’t help myself, on another omelette roll of late … damp, wet weather puts me in the mood for stick to my ribs food. This always hits the gut-filling spot … prolly be doubling (or tripling) down with that ragin’ bitch Sandy unleashing her fury … already felt that cold wind firsthand *shivers*. Now? I’m hunkered down!! A few pic y’all. 😉

havarti, ham, cremini, tomato, red onion omelette & hash browns w/toasted English muffin

some shrooms showing through the eggs – LOVE IT

almost done y’all

on an omelette roll

… yeah yeah, quit rolling yer eyes (and don’t think I can’t see you ’cause I can, lol). Just a quickie post y’all … mushrooms (cremini today) are always a must, fresh herbs too (oregano, thyme, Italian parsley) when available from my garden (and don’t forget my use the best eggs rule) … but what I’m really impressed/surprised with … and admittedly I stumbled upon it purely by accident, is the combination of two cheeses … had a bit of both – equal portions left in the fridge, so it was a no-brainer – Greek feta and creamy havarti!! I’ve NEVER EVER seen those used in tandem … in ANY meal, or any recipe … so yes, I will deservedly take credit (please forgive me while I sit back and gloat, lol). The crumbly, dry, saltiness of the feta plays off beautifully of the easy to melt, smooth textured, mild and slightly nutty flavour of the havarti … what a beautiful combination … sheer genius – if I do say so myself!! A couple of pics … served with generously buttered toasted English muffins … enjoy!!

fluffy omelette

… almost souffle like!! Something I’m strivin’ for when whipping up an omelette. The shape, (ain’t bustin’ open – staying intact), colour & texture look perfect … almost as if I used a mold, lol. Threw in leftover steak, onions and mushrooms … that’s Monterey Jack cheese you see oozing out … fill it as you please. Oh, and it’s 4 of the most free run, hormone free brown eggs ya can get – that’s key btw, use the best/freshest eggs … ALWAYS!!

grilled asparagus!!

Was doing my thang shopping up a storm at my Fortinos and knew asparagus was on sale for $1.79/lb (as a side note, am amused it’s one of the few “bunched” veggies priced by weight, not by bunch … even though IT IS bunched, lol?! ‘Sup with that?), so I did a walk-by and was surprised and excited to find one outta the lot that was thinly stalked (thinner is better btw, avoid thick ass ones like the elephantitis plague), and I’m talking pencil thin here, so I snagged ‘n bagged them along with my other groceries. On that topic, Tiffany K was riding my ass (hard, lol) wanting me to buy this new PC product … comes in six flavours and every time I looked, the ONLY was not to be found was the one she wanted … evidently everybody else had a hankering for it as well … but as you can see (but not taste – too bad, is VERY good) success at last. Enjoy the pics y’all!!

PC Sofrito:

A couple of New York Strips and strung piquante sausages … startin’ gettin’ their char on!! Asparagus patiently awaits:

My grilled Vidalia onion, poblano pepper relish … jar THAT PC, lol:

… and not to boast, but DAMN motherfuckers … shit’s the bomb … great with burgers, sausages, eggs … OMG love LOVE it in omelettes and frittatas!!

Plated … finally! A feast fit for Tiffany K & danistrulytheman:

And the best part (as always, lol) … leftovers!! A bit of a change-up (or is that curveball, lol?) A quick steak and sausage stir-fry, along with my onion/poblano mix (marries together so beautifully, can’t begin to tell ya how good it is), steamed the asparagus, poached two eggs lightly (I’m talking running yokes folks) and freshly grated (coarsely) parm-regg as a finishing touch … AND a dollop of Sofrito, AND sliced hothouse tomatoes to boot, LOL!!:
