Great Breakfast

Couldn’t ask for a nicer breakfast this Father’s Day Sunday morning. Served in the garden, flowers in full bloom, warm, bright sun, light, gentle breeze, Mocking Bird singing in the Flowering Plum, and my dog dozing beside me.

Then the delightful menu: Chorizo & eggs, scrambled, a small slice of ham, hash browns, toasted homemade bread, a cup of blackberries in cream, tomato juice, and coffee.

Life just doesn’t get a whole lot better

Michelle, chorizo is not thsat hot (Although I do have a "cast iron stomach"). BW does not like hot, but enjoys chorizo in a wide variety of recipes. For example, chroizo, eggs,corn tortilla pieces, onion, green pepper tomato and tomatillo, , cilantro, salt & pepper, coarsely chooped, fried like scrambled eggs is a really great breakfast dish. Mexicans call it "chile aquiles" or something like that. Delicious. Doesn't bite back.

P.S. I checked the web, and found (1), it's spelled chilaquiles; and (2) none of the recipes on the web included chorizo. But they did include jack cheese, which I forgot.

The ingredients I listed were used by the nicve folk in the tiny village of La Bocana, Baja California, some 40 years ago, as well as by my buddy, Ben, who hails from Colima, Mexico.

Ironchef, whlile I've no doubt that dish was very tasty, it seems to me the strong flavor or chorizo would overwhelm the delicate flavor of a good piece of halibut.

I think that chorizo is particularly good with seafood. I had a grilled chorizo and squid dish once that was fantastic. But then I think pork in general is great with the sea. Pancetta and clams, bacon and scallops and in clam chowder..... :D
