Sunday Morning


I woke up to a pair of mourning doves at my windowsill cooing, it was 6:40am but felt much earlier and darker. (Hello, daylight savings.) On went the slippers. On went the music and the frying pan and the butter. It's rare I do myself a bacon breakfast but when you have it in the fridge resistance is futile. 
Bacon. Just crispy enough to hold its shape but not so crispy that it breaks when you bite into it. Yolks runny enough to soak in toast but not so runny that they're still cold. Ground pepper big enough to get endearingly stuck in your teeth. Coffee. And a lot of it.

This song is absolutely in order.

  11. Everything looks soo good and exactly the way it needs to be on a Sunday. I know EXACTLY what you mean about the coffee.

    I need to try that jam. I've been buying the Bonne Maman fig preserves and I'm a fan.

  27. You weren't kidding about your fried egg breakfasts!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Amy, I would never joke about something as serious as a fried egg.

    ReplyDelete
  29. having been a vegetarian since the age of 14, i still have cravings for bacon inbetween.
    but fried eggs are doing a good job on their own!
    mmmmm....

    ReplyDelete
  30. A most simple yet decadent breakfast! The images were so alive I could almost taste the bacon. Yummmm!
    Aren't Sunday mornings simply delightful?
    Wishing you blissful interludes,

  31. Now I feel hungry :) And I am longing for having a nice breakfast next Sunday!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Oh, yes.

    I'm the same - if there's bacon in the fridge, I want to eat it for every meal!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Now that's a sacramental experience. Maybe your breakfast has been eaten with more spiritual reverence than some people attend church with! Communion of eggs, bacon and bread for the wafer. Coffee for the wine.

    A divine feeding of body and soul!

  34. nteresting-I open your blog as I'm enjoying the identical breakfast, down to the Maman's raspberry jam. The only difference is mine is in the form of a sandwich.

    As an fyi, if you remember several months back you were in Annapolis with, I believe, your sister and parents, and ate at 49 West. I was your server. Haha. I enjoy your blog every time I stop by for a visit. Keep spreading the word. : )

  39. Now that is a perfect start to the day...
    The only thing I would add to the feast is a slice of Soda bread and a bit of Potato bread (a tattie scone) and maybe a generous serve of bubble & squeak - for me there is no better pay to start the weekend than with an Ulster fry & the Velvet Underground!

  41. And so begins my drooling...

    The traditional eggs + bacon + toast can never do you wrong. It's my staple. I wish I could eat it for lunch, and dinner, and snack and every course.

    Beautiful blog!

    love amy ^.^

  42. I had to Google that sauce. It's "sriracha", for the rest of you who may care, and it's a hot chili sauce used in Asia. Which I would still call "hot sauce", if it weren't for the fact that "sriracha" is so much more fun to say.

  43. Ah, my favorite kind of breakfast!

  46. OH! Now I must have this breakfast on Sunday. That's the lazy morning day around my house. We putter in slippers (mine are shaped like Dutch wooden shoes!) and listen to the radio or the record player, and we fry some bacon in a cast-iron skillet. Oh, perfect.
