Went to a 'Sculpt & Tone' workout this morning after only a coffee and croissant.

That workout kicked my a**! Eek

UGGGGH. Need Protein......

Came back to a Fritatta Brunch (lovely made by D). Awesome. Included Olives, Chicken Sausage, wild mushrooms (left over from the Risotto prep last night), shallots, Parmesan, rosemary & thyme.

YUM! Smile

I find a good vodka martini can sneak up on you a lot quicker than wine. At a recent dinner party I too finished 4 martinis in relatively short order (Chopin), the problem was they were triples and they were along with a glass or two of red had with dinner. Let's just say the evening ended a bit early for me.
My hangover breakfast:
Three or four Caesars with lots of celery salt around the rim.
Three eggs scrambled over low heat with lots of butter and chopped chives (French style).
A six oz tenderloin grilled to medium well.
Two pieces whole wheat toast with butter and ginger marmelade.
Large glass ice water and two Tylenol.
Three more hours sleep.

You actually had a glass left over!? Eek


I was surprised as well, but killed the rest as soon as I found it this morning. Wink


Reminds me of when I was doing inventory last year and "found" a bottle of 1988 Salon I didn't realize I had. You gotta love it when you find stuff like that. Wink

Jalapeno for breakfast? That is not something I expect to see Canadians enjoying for breakfast.

First impression - Hangover breakfast.


wine+art I am a fan of peppers, so for me it is not a big deviation from standard breakfast fare. KSCO2, I was a little dry but not by my definition hung over. Overall it was a delicious sandwich.

Girlfriend's idea. However, she also talked me into a sparkling/Champagne tasting Friday night that I wasn't planning on going to. You take the good with the not so good!


Oh, now I am a fan of Champagne plus girlfriend, SO/wife. No need for sparkling wine though unless it is used for something other than drinking. Wink

Frankly, if there is one thing where eggnog sounds like it would work it would be in making french toast. Eggs and dairy, and a touch of booze? Hmmmm.... I wouldn't drink it, but soaking some day old slices of baguette in this sounds kinda interesting.

I am, admittedly, just a little surprised that you've not experimented with this concoction before, PH Smile

You lost me at beans.... Razz

Feve au lard, or baked beans (similar to what you'd have with hot dogs, etc) are a very traditional addition to a Quebecois breakfast. Don't ask my why, it just is. Ham, baked beans, bacon are all very traditional sides in a breakfast here. Maybe it derives from the days of loggers and trappers and the hearty breakfasts they needed before enduring the elements...

I know they're a traditional component of the British breakfast as well. I can enjoy them with eggs and meats. The combo with french toast and mixed berries was a little palate confusing, that's all! Razz
