What's for breakfast? (2024)

Very ripe peaches calling for a no sugar topper.

:joy: I have a cup & saucer of Mom’s pattern. As for ever ordering any more dishes in this lifetime, I’d have to buy a spare condo to store them. I have 2 full sets of china and (trying to count here) 3 or four sets of regular dishes, plus maybe 6 sets of dinner and salad plates, plus other complete sets — from my parents - in storage At least.

This was my Mom’s pattern. I think the photo is from eBay; it’s saved from the web. Of course, I forgot to label it.

Sounds like you’re set for now then? :laughing: :upside_down_face: :wink:

God Help Me. And let’s not even talk about flatware and silverware (admittedly takes up a whole lot less room).

I tried to make a Greek Asparagus Omelette again. Closer, but no cigar. I attempted the plate method but it broke into pieces.

Goal , Olive Tomato’s omelette . Maybe I have too much asparagus: egg to flip more easily.

I’m going to make Akis’ Omelette, which looks like it might not get flipped, next time.

Or maybe this instead.

It might be a function of the size of the pan. I have been using an 8" pan for 2-3 eggs (~1 serving) and then adjust the heat and cook time depending on how my ingredients are behaving. Seems to work.

The usual Berlin spread of SBEs, a sourdough loaf fresh from the Thursday market, the last of the San Daniele ham, cheese plate: Taleggio, Toma, Cuor di Capra, plus a trio of smoked fish we also picked up at the market: catfish (fantastic, very aromatic & meaty - nothing like its US cousin), salmon, and butterfish. I picked up a horseradish mousse bc we were low on the real deal, but it was disappointingly lacking bite.

Good to know. I think I might try using a metal circle in the pan next time, to make mini omelettes that are easier to flip. It’s probably also my spatula and skill set causing the failures :joy:

I found some on Replacements.com.
Very pretty and apparently popular.

Scrambled, omelet, it’s all good :smiley: Are you using a non stick pan? If you’re not comfortable flipping it, just finish it off under the broiler.

Nope, stainless steel All-Clad. I don’t use any non-stick anything. I will try again, might use the broiler next time!

Thanks for the tip :pray:

Welp, there’s your problem right there.

I’ll wreck the coating and add to landfill. I’ll just scramble or bake or work on my technique.

Ok

Don’t matter.

It all looks the same once it goes down.

I would not trust Aki. “Add salt and sauté the onion for 1-2 minutes until caramelized.” Yeah, no.

Shouldn’t it look better going in than coming out though? :sweat_smile:

That breadcrumb pancake was always my first bites as a kid when my mom made chicken cutlets!
