Dinner Club: Breakfast for Dinner

 Step 1: There was bacon.

Step 2: The Friends

and the conversation!! 
 Step 3: The Cooking... (or frying!)
 ....of lots of bacon. 
 Step 4: Mimosas! 
 Step 5: Waffles (made in my brand new waffle iron!!)
 Step 6: Gotta keep the food warm! 
 Step 7: Get organized and set the table!
 Step 8:  Admire the yumminess...

 Tummy GROWL!

All in all we had: Scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, french toast, potatoes, waffles, baked tomatoes, fruit salad and mimosas! It was grand! 
The great thing about breakfast is that it really is simple and delicious.  Eggs, hashbrowns/potatoes and bacon, possibly the most popular breakfast foods of all time, are also the simplest! 

We did follow a few recipes though:

Fruit Salad:
Any Fruit you like. This version had: banana, spartan apple, papaya, cantaloupe, pineapple, mixed berries. Dressing honey and lime to taste. Now here's my not-secret part. 2 things: always add some type of thawed frozen berries and most importantly either some booze! (either sherry or madeira!)

Baked Tomatoes:
1) slice tomatoes
2) Brush with garlic olive oil, salt and pepper, and a "chiffonade" of fresh basil.
2) bake at 350 for 30 mins and sprinkle with parmasean. 

Stay tuned this month of June for the next Dinner Club restaurant outing at Taste of Ukraine!


  1. What a nice report on a lovely evening! Also, look at that face I'm pulling -- it must have been a good conversation!

  2. It is always a treat to have breakfast for dinner and with today's busy schedules it is nice to have time to make treats like waffles!
