Whoa! Who stole time and left us all at the end of the year in December? Time has just flown by this year, that's for sure.

This morning I made asparagus/cream cheese omelettes for Mr. Amazing and me. (Mine gets topped with a bit of taco sauce because I just like it to season up the eggs.)

We had my DH's version of eggs benedict. Toasted buttered English muffin, a slice of American cheese, a slice of ham warmed in bacon grease, bacon, a fried egg, all topped with hollandaise. A belly bomb to be sure.

But if you only have it once in a while, Bugster, then there's no problem. I'll bet a lot of people would sit down at your table if that's what you offered!

Mine would be covered with Tabasco -- I can't eat eggs without Tabasco. I've even got Brian doing it now...

Beth.. breakfast looks good.. I'm with Crybaby though.. I need Tabasco or my chili sauce on my eggs Laughing 

my breakfast today is.. a big piece of my homemade Brioche and 1/2 cup of coffee/cream.. my first ever brioche ( I still can't pronounce it right Laughing )



I baked it in a loaf pan, not in muffin tins

Imelda, it doesn't matter if you can't pronounce Brioche -- it still looks beautiful!

that bread looks wonderful.Looks like the crust is nice & soft.I need to get another breadmachine. I miss making bread. $4.50 for a loaf Evil or Very Mad

I stopped using the breadmaker regularly when we both lost weight.

I don't know how you guys eat all the bread, cake, and other stuff without being 300 lbs., which is what Brian and I would be if we ate all that!

thank you Crybaby and Barbara Very Happy 

Barbara.. Did you check your Goodwill stores? the other day I saw 2 big, still shiny and clean ( looked unused ) bread machines in the store.. I have my regret that I did not get one..only $15 and extra 20% off that day.. Crying or Very sad 

I don't eat much bread, but my DH loves eating breads.. to make it worst.. he likes to slather load of butter on his breads.. this Brioche already has lots of butter but he still needs more butter on it
Shocked

Sort of sounds like me. I would rather have one bite of the best ice cream than a whole carton of the cheap stuff.

I had a second loaf in a package of 2 store made French Bread that is about 3 days old....not at it's freshest, that's for sure. So, why not make it into French Toast? Surprisingly, Mr. Amazing decided to have seconds ~ usually breakfast isn't breakfast for him unless it involves lots of eggs, and I didn't make any extra eggs to go with his breakfast.

Imelda - you have "the touch" with that bread ! I do so hope Jetfan sees it as he'll be proud of you as well ! I can almost TASTE and SMELL the aroma coming from your warm bread.

Absolutely beautiful !!

I was thinking this morning about Imelda's bread she made, that would be great French toast.When I go to walM I always buy that off bread they have racked up. It goes right in my freezer ..I make croutons & french toast.

I thought about waffles this morning. Nah. Thought about making buttermilk biscuits & sausage gravy.Nah.

It is late for me to eat breakfast so I will hold off till lunch.Bacon,tom,lettuce sandwich sounds good.

BLT's ALWAYS sound good.  But I'm kind of hungry for those romaine lettuce wrap ones I made when we were "carb free" ~ man, those were so good and I never missed the bread one bit.

(I'm sure it was the Miracle Whip that I slathered on first, for sure!)

Here's a pic of the ones with avocado....so, SO good!

French bread makes super French toast -- as would Imelda's Brioche and also Challah. And nothing tastes better with French toast than bacon!

Mmmm, those look delicious, Beth. Brian would probably faint if I served him that without the bread but it's right up my alley!

I'm watching The Today Show and just saw where a woman was on who used avocado in brownies instead of oil or fat -- the tasters said they couldn't taste the difference.  She also used yeast on top of popcorn instead of cheese and Al Roker said, "Interesting," and then made a face to the camera.  I had to laugh, as he said, "I prefer my yeast in bread."

when it is safe to go to wal mart I am going to buy another air popcorn popper.I used it so much that thing died.
I make all sorts of flavored popcorn. Last yr I made caramel corn OMG>>

You just reminded me of a great holiday treat, Barb.

I've not had much luck the last few times I've made my mom's favorite caramel corn recipe ~ no matter how I try to be sure there are no hard kernels or seeds in the corn I always have at least one. A couple years ago I cracked a tooth and that's when I gave it up.

Then I discovered you can make the same recipe and use that "hull-less popcorn" you buy at the grocery store, much like cheese curls without the cheese coating. Plain, it tastes much like Styrofoam... Anyway, use that instead of popcorn and you won't take the chance of biting down on a kernel and ending up your week at the dentist for repairs.

I fixed a late breakfast this morning, Mr. Amazing's favorite:

Dane mentioned he was getting a little hungry so I had to come up with something for lunch. I don't know why but Spanish Rice came to mind, and I just happened to have a zip bag in the freezer.



Dane took apart the old looking green patio table and painted it to match the chairs I picked up. Now we have a "new" dining set on the lanai....I'm pleased!

Could not see it going with bacon wrapped chicken.

I laughed about the Spanish rice, too!

We're going to have your smoked boneless chicken thighs today, Barb, wrapped in bacon. I've decided to marinate the chicken in a citrus/fresh herb mix prior to wrapping in bacon and smoking. Last time we used Mad Hunkey and they were yummy but we have so many fresh herbs and lots of oranges, lemons and limes so we decided to try something different. Will let you kow how it turns out. We did indeed love those and I've passed on your idea to a few peeps as well.
