Olde World Bagels And Market Is No More

This is a sad day.  I was on Face Book last night and saw a post by Olde World Bagels, thanking folks and that they were on to new adventures, WHAT?!  You’re closing? NOOOOOOO!   DH felt that we’d be able to get one more visit in later in the week before they closed, rather than facing a Sunday Rush, but I thought differently.   I got up early this morning and figured I call over there first and ask what their hours were going to be for Monday; I was told that today is their last day; they will no longer be open.  WHAT?!!!  I’ve NEVER gotten dressed and went out the door so fast before.

This is our last dozen Olde World Bagels, ever.  (SSHHH! Don’t tell DH but I hide 6 of them in the deep freeze for later)

Thank you Gina for the best Bagels we’ve ever had and probably will again.

Aloha and all the best in the future to you and your family.

Sweet Potato Café In Prescott Arizona

We had another early appointment and as our reward, we took each other out to breakfast.  This place has been on my “to try” list ever since we moved to the area… Sweet Potato Café.

I like to look at a menu online prior to going to a new restaurant, so I know what I’d like to eat and make a suggestion to my husband as to what I think he would enjoy.

As you can see, DH attacked his plate prior to the photo op … HA!

For my DH, it was the Got To Have It Skillet:

2 eggs (soft scrambled please) and Potatoes with Bell Peppers, Onions, Sausage, Bacon, diced Ham, hold the diced Tomato please, and Cheese; choice of one: Sweet Potato Bread, Toast, 1 Biscuit & Gravy or 2 Cakes (Pancakes that is, Buttermilk or Sweet Potato).

For myself it was the Steak Skillet:

2 eggs (once again soft scrambled), Mushrooms, Onions, and Cheese, also with choice of one: Sweet Potato Bread, Toast, 1 Biscuit & Gravy or 2 Cakes.

DH chose the grilled Sweet Potato Bread and I chose Whole Wheat Toast.  Coffee and OJ were also on the table.  It was very plentiful and delicious!  We’ll need to go back again to try out some of the other wonderful dishes.

Start Your Aloha Friday Off Right

They say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so why not have the quintessential meal from Hawaii,

… and Diamond Head in the background!

Spam®, Eggs and Rice

but kick it over the top with a glass of Guava Juice; then Aloha Shoyu and Furikake for your Rice

ALOHA!

 

Litehouse Instantly Fresh Salad Herb Blend

On my most recent venture to my favorite green grocery, I was poking around and saw this.

Litehouse Instantly Fresh Salad Herb Blend

Mrs. Dear Friend buys this brand of herb blends, but I had never tried it before, so I figured why not.

I was thinking as I was driving home that this would be terrific with eggs; let’s try this in an Omelette.

I’ve had these cool Norpro Silicone 4” Egg Rings for some time now, but haven’t used them until now.

Wouldn’t it be great to have some Green Eggs and Ham Sandwiches?

This is the simplest breakfast to make.  I scrambled 2 eggs in a cup and stirred in about a teaspoon (give or take) of the Salad Herb Blend.  Heat a non-stick pan over medium-low.  I melted some Butter into the rings and made sure that they were well greased all along the insides.  Next, pour the egg mixture into the ring and allow to set-up; remove the ring and flip the Omelette over to finish cooking.

I toasted an English muffin, topped it with some shredded cheese to melt faster; added some fried Ham slices and then lastly our perfectly round Omelette.

MMM, Enjoy!

Buttermilk Pancakes With Melted Butter And Real Maple Syrup

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…

Eat more Pancakes!

Sunday Brunch Out At The Lone Spur Café

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!

Happy Sunday!

Waffle Ice Cream Sandwiches

Waffles for Sunday Brunch

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.

Oops, I forgot the Powdered Sugar

Oops, I forgot the Powdered Sugar

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).

DELICIOUS!!
