Life throws you some bumps and surprises. Sometimes these are good, sometimes these are bad, and sometimes they make you not want to eat a rutabaga casserole for dinner. Alas, our tentative concoction of a rutabaga gratin savoyard with cheese and almonds was hastily ditched in favor of some more comforting food on a slightly snowy evening.
Breakfast for dinner! Does the soul good sometimes to have eggs, pancakes, cheese and sausage with herbal tea and fresh maple syrup. The apple was sort of a tribute to eating produce.
That breakfast sausage was from Kate Stillman, and man was it good. I have two links sitting in my lunch box tempting me right now. Perfect with our syrup and special pancakes. Yep, special pancakes! We didn’t have enough wheat flour for a whole batch, so they are half rye pancakes. No milk, so I reconstituted some of our reduced apple cider for the liquid, added a healthy dash of cinnamon and some vanilla. It was a pleasant change, and they went with the sausage and eggs perfectly.
The only veggies were in the last lone pieces of the zucchini bread I had made on Monday. At least there was a lot of zucchini in the bread!
Wishing everyone a happy Thursday, and hopefully the weather will warm up again soon.
