Been eating poached eggs with toast and bacon lately, though today was oatmeal.

Oh, c'mon. Any 2 drop dead gorgeous, intelligent, and funny guys like us are likely to crave Cadbury bars. Stop being so modest.

Writing about my high-heat scrambled eggs, as well as seeing a post about grits on another forum made me crave both, so I dug the stone-ground grits out of the freezer, made my eggs, and nuked some bacon. Yes, I microwave bacon when I'm cooking just 1 or 2 pieces. I much prefer pan cooked, but I'm not going to mess up a pan and the stovetop for just a couple of pieces. Only made half a recipe of the grits so have enough for another meal.



See how fluffy and glisteny my high-heat eggs are.

Actually, it's only 1 egg, but writing egg, instead of eggs, just looks wrong.

It's weird but lately, instead of seeing people's pictures, sometimes I just see an icon labeled GIF. I don't know if it's related to the new DC mobile app or something else.

I have eggs for breakfast almost every single day, so I don't post many breakfast photos. I tend to prefer them either scrambled or as an omelet. Usually it just depends on how early in the day it is. If it's closer to lunch time, like today, then I have an omelet.

So here's today's breakfast omelet, stuffed with spinach and cream cheese. I also flavored the eggs with a pinch of truffle salt. Something about the flavor of truffles with eggs is a great combination.

I didn't finish my scramble and a piece of turkey sausage the other day, so for myself, I reheated the leftovers and added them to a flour tortilla with shredded cheese and some salsa

Oh man, I could go for smoked trout and eggs, K-girl.

A little diner in Phoenecia, N.Y. got me hooked on the combo . It's right in the middle of some great trout fishing, so their smoked trout and eggs, especially the omelette is outstanding.

I like to stop along the little roadside stands in the spring and buy the local fishermen's smoked trout on our way hime from skiing. It never lasts more than a day or two.

Anyway, brekkie is Taylor HAM, eggs over easy, and 'murican cheese on seeded wholegrain bread.

BT, have you ever tried Smoked Trout Benedict? Had it once while in San Diego, that's where I learned that I was allergic, but man was it good!

AND that's some awfully shy lookin' Taylor Ham there buddy

Lol, yeah, just 2 slices on 2 eggs, 2 slices of cheese.

I'm trying to eat less before I go to sleep in the morning.

We went out for breakfast as usual and the place had tres leches (3 milk) pancakes as their special, so that's what I had. No syrup needed for this one. They boast that they have the best pancakes in town. They were pretty darn good, obviously had buttermilk in them. The tres leches part was in the butter spread. For those that don't know, tres leches cake is a Latin milk cake using sweetened condensed milk, evap milk and whole milk mixed together with vanilla and soaked into either a rich yellow cake or a rich sponge cake. It is frosted with whipped cream so technically it's a 4 milk cake, but, hey, whatever floats your boat as far as naming. For the butter spread, they whipped the butter and whipped in the milks somehow. I'm guessing they must have cooked them down slowly, cooled, then whipped in the butter. Regardless of how they did it, the pancakes were good. I had to leave the last few bites, just couldn't finish.
