I think that Pancakes are simply a vehicle in which to shovel as much melted Butter and Real Maple Syrup into you mouth as possible…

DH and I don’t go out to breakfast very often, but we started talking about The Lone Spur Café and how we hadn’t been there for breakfast in a really long time. So, let’s go!
I’ll go first. This is my favorite breakfast/Sunday Brunch item of all times! This is the Cowboy Benedict. You’ll get 2 Biscuits topped with a generously thick slice of Smoked Ham, two Basted Eggs, Country Gravy (don’t let that throw ya though, it’s the best Sausage Gravy I’ve ever flipped a lip over!) along with a side of either Country Potatoes or Hash browns. I had the half order with Hash browns and I wound up taking most the Potatoes home.
DH enjoyed the Ham Steak & Eggs. This a nice sized hunk-o-Smoked Ham, 2 Eggs (although that looks more like THREE Eggs to me) cooked to order and your choice of Country Potatoes or Hash browns. DH had the “regular sized order” with the Country Potatoes and scrambled, but you can get a larger “Cowboy size”.
We were both stuffed to the gills, so we went across the street to the Court House Square to walk it off. Ya gotta love small towns!
I made Waffles for Sunday Brunch again, but just a few too many. That’s alright, I simply freeze the leftovers for later, as in later that night for dessert.
My DH grew up eating Waffle Ice Cream Sandwiches at various locations back East. They use Neapolitan Ice Cream in a brick. Remember those square blocks of Ice Cream in cardboard containers? Yup, cut those into slices and place between 2 toasted Waffles, dust with Powdered Sugar and you’ve got a childhood memory in your hand.
I have a heck of a time finding that kind of Ice Cream any more, but we do love Tillamook, any flavor will do really. This fine Sunday evening, it was Marionberry Pie, oh my gravy all over my two scoops rice (that’s OMG! in my world).
SO, I’ll tell you, the reason that I’ve not been around is that DH and I have been so very busy moving into our new home. We sold our home and purchased a new-build home, very exciting. While our home was being built, we rented an apartment, fully furnished, but I didn’t have all of my kitchen toys, though we got by 😉 So here is a small portion of meals.
You know that we love our Sunday Brunch, well, today’s meal was provided by Mrs. Landlord and Mrs. Dear Friend.
Our new landlord was telling me about these awesome Blue Corn Meal Pancakes that she makes and looky what appeared in the dumb waiter for us this morning! DH takes a bite and says, “What’s this called again? That’s pretty good.”
To round out our repast, Mrs. DF had sent over some of her organic Chicken Eggs, always a winner. Throw in some REAL Maple Syrup, a cuppa Joe, a few Turkey Sausages and a bowl of diced Cantaloupe. As Mrs. Landlord says, we share with each other our bounty; life is good.
Mahalo, thanks ladies.
I’m pretty sure I’ve shared with everyone that my husband and I love our Sunday Brunch. 99.9% of the time it’s at home with me cooking. One of the food forums that I participate in has a challenge each month with a different theme. I racked my brain for something to enter when one Sunday I found myself making this:
Scratch made Buttermilk Pancakes stuffed with homemade Chunky Apple Sauce, topped with Caramel Sauce, chopped Pecans and a dollop of whipped Cream.
Turkey Piggys in a Blanket, with a drizzle of warmed homemade Blackberry Jam.
I make Chunky Apple Sauce all the time for my Mom … and the jam, well, the last time we went to see my Mother, we brought back a MESS of fresh Blackberries … Oh my gravy all over my two scoops rice (that’s OMG! In my world), they’re both so good!
What an amazing Sunday Brunch. Did I mention that we shared these two plates …
Part of living in a new place is discovering new eateries. Our new landlord had pointed us in the direction of a terrific bagel shop in town, Olde World Bagels and Market. It’s a bit off the path, but we found it, twice!
The first visit was kinda of like a meet and greet for us, we bought 3 plain bagels; that should tell the tale. YES IN DEED! Very good! So we returned for a full blown meal. An early breakfast was in order a few days later, in which we ordered each a Bacon Egg and Cheese Bagel, mine on the Herbs de Provence bagel with Cheddar and DH had his on a plain Bagel with Swiss Cheese. Sorry, but I didn’t snap a photo, next time, because there will be a next time.
We also took home a baker’s dozen of assorted flavored bagels for later.
The following morning it was a plain bagel, toasted, with fried Taylor’s Pork Roll if you’re from New jersey or Taylor’s Ham if you’re from Pennsylvania… but I digress … I added a slice of Swiss Cheese melted it on top.
BOY HOWDY! Them’s some good eats!
