Our coffee this morning was Sierra Madre Reserve from Equal Exchange (after we pitched the Kona blend beans that were re-gifted to us--stale. :angry: ).

With it we had spaghetti a la carbonara (Tinkyada brown rice pasta, farm eggs, and bacon).

:Where can I buy this?

Groff's Content Farm sells at the Silver Spring farmers market on Saturday mornings during the regular season--I'll be glad to let you know if they're returning for the winter market on January 9.

I know it's not their only market, so you might try a web search for their name and see if there is a more convenient location. Not the only terrific bacon around, but worth trying at least once as I just did.

A fried egg and Irish cheddar grilled sandwich on Pugliese bread. The bread is from Costco, and it is perfect for grilling. Just soft enough to make deep marks, but it turns really crispy too.

Eggs en Coquette over leftover sauce of cremini mushrooms, white wine, Dijon and cream*, topped with chives.

The last of last week's almost no knead bread, toasted and used for sopping.

Leftover mashed potatoes and parsnip turned into potato pancakes with chevre and dill. Topped with sour cream and more dill.

Not quite as good as my mom's, but so far my best effort yet. I make them from memory; Mom added flour, baking soda? and eggs. I just eyeball it and see what happens.

Goodeats, do you have a good recipe for blueberry waffles? Hubs and I got a waffle iron as a wedding present, but we haven't used it yet because we haven't found a good batter to start with.

Bettyjoan - good waffle recipes are hard to find! - probably not, but this was pretty good for a work in progress. Gelittleman liked it enough to eat an entire waffle, so I guess that's a pretty nice endorsement. Hope you like it - and others - please feel free to add tips to the recipe!

*Makes 2.5 waffles*

2 cups flour

1 tablespoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 to 1/2 cup of sugar

1 to 2 cups of milk (I used soy, but really, buttermilk is best. I used roughly about 1.5 cups of soy milk -- probably closer to 1 if using buttermilk?)

2 splashes of rice vinegar (should be vinegar with milk, but NOT add if you use buttermilk, and it was the only vinegar I had)

1 stick of butter

1 egg, separated

Washed blueberries (handful)

Sift dry ingredients together and set aside. Melt butter and set aside to cool.

Separate egg yolk and egg white - beat white until almost stiff - to fold in for later.

Once butter has cooled, beat yolk and butter together until mixed. Add that to sugar and mix until blended.

Fold that into the dry ingredients, and slowly add milk + vinegar (I added vinegar after I added the milk, but before folding in the whites) or buttermilk to mix well for a thick batter. Fold whites into batter well.

Heat waffle iron, pour in batter, then add blueberries and follow instructions for doneness. Mine had a little red light that went off after it's cooked.

Enjoy!

Thanks! I'll let you know how it goes.

Today's breakfast wasn't a waffle, sadly--instead, I had Egg Beaters on a flour tortilla with homemade tomatillo salsa. The salsa was awesome, and it made me forget (at least for a moment) that I was eating fake eggs.

I received a tip from a co-worker that the best egg-white substitute is Lucerne, found up here in Safeway. Not sure if you have access to it in Atlanta but I heartily concur.

Awesome! You are spoiling them, and I am sure they love it. In return, make them at least host a dessert party for you sometime soon.

Gawds I miss dorm life.
