poachies poachies i love you

12 May

oh how do i love poached eggs.

takes me all the way back to being  just a sweet young thing with red hair and buck teeth.  i believe we have pictures of me sitting in a high chair eating mushed up poachies (as we called them).  my mom used to make them in a plug-in poached egg machine:

and plop them in a cereal bowl and cut up buttered toast into little squares.  The poachies would be a little runny and the warm yellow yolk would coat the toast chunks.  a sprinkle of crunchy kosher salt would be the cherry on top.  i – love – poachies.

so recently, i bought a $20 poachie machine at bed bath body and beyond or whatever that store is called.

so now i can make my own poachies for ROF.  in fact i’ve made them many mornings since i got the $20 poachie machine!

but now i make them the grown-up way

on a proper plate with a knife and a fork.  we’re real formal round here at the appreciator house.

here are some more glamour shots:

and here is how you make poachies with my pan – love this couple.  pretty funny (when he says to her “is using a huge steak knife proper protocol?”)

breakfasts of creative people

7 Apr

i love breakfast.

i love the pageantry – the cracking of eggs, waft of bacon, the coffee brewing.  the smells and sounds that get sleepyheads all over the house stirring.  i love morning music (listening to it now, which would be my “downright good music” playlist on spotify.)

i thought i’d curate some different breakfasts for you.  all links are below on on my board here on pinterest.

amaretto french toast bites with pecans.

  click here for recipe from sweet paul magazine

french toast kebabs

click here for recipe and an awesome shower idea from the city of dionne blog.

overnight oats – 2 ways

see pepper lynn’s blog here for the very cool recipe. 

NOLA shrimp & grits

although i’m a firm believer in breakfast food for breakfast – this cheddary mix looks so good to me.  prolly cuz i’ve been eating so well and couldn’t ever eat this right now.  but if you can, get the recipe here.

like i could eat this either.  WHAT AM I DOING TORTURING MYSELF!  (calm down)

i appreciate cinnamon roll waffles.  find them here from recipe girl.

ever since mom told me

that she attended a wedding in DC that had a fantastic brunch and they served mini pancakes on a toothpick – i’ve loved that idea!  how cute are these little buggers?

coffee with nametag sleeves and a donut hole stirrer.  some people are just TOO clever (such a thing? not)

i’ve had some pretty good posts, if i do say myself, already on breakfast:

1. katherine glass’ post on breakfast for dinner was yummy beyond belief.

2. sarah voet’s post on healthy, healthy waffles has been requested several times!

3. and yours truly posted on some eggs in a basket i made off a pinterest pin that turned out awesome.

now, go eat some breakfast!
