Brunch Cancelled

breakfast

…we still cut into the Coffee Bread, though!

Delicious. Moist, dense – tastes like a piece of cake, dunked into a cup of joe with sugar and cream

But, I paired mine with tea…

…and ‘loupe

Was able to return most of the groceries I had bought, but there were some already-opened items that needed to be used up. Originally I was going to make Cheese Latkes, but wasn’t hungry enough to actually eat any. Decided to make something that could last a long time instead.

When I first read Tracy’s post about “Freezer Burritos” I was instantly intrigued – and since Breakfast Burritos are a favorite of both Abe and mine, that sounded like the perfect way to use up some of the extra eggs, potato, and cheese.

Abe sautéed up a package of Southwest Style Hash Browns and onions in EVOO, adding paprika/cumin to the mix

I scrambled up four eggs with a splash of water in coconut oil

Folded into several different flavors of Tumaro’s Deli Style Tortillas, with shredded cheddar

Wrapped in a paper towel, some plastic wrap…

…when you’re ready to eat, just nuke in the napkin!

    That bread looks so yummy and spongy! I can imagine pouring honey or warm fruit preserves over it! :)

    Those burritos are so cool!! I definitely want to try that to have on hand for a quick meal!

    And that bread looks like it has such a unique texture!

    Aw, I’m sorry that your brunch was cancelled. At least you were still able to enjoy the bread, which looks delicious!
    “Freezer burritos” are brilliant. Perfect for busy mornings (or afternoons) and you avoid all the preservatives found in regular frozen foods. Yum!

    Coffee bread sounds great!!!!!! It looks so moist too – mmmmm!

    You returned groceries? I’ve never heard of such a thing. Or, I should say, it’s something I’ve never thought of doing. Was it packaged stuff, or fresh? I’m still kind of baffled by this concept…

    BTW – the coffee bread looks really good!

    • http://theactorsdiet.wordpress.com Lynn at The Actors Diet

      yes – it was all packaged stuff though! i had just bought orange juice and milk the day before, so when you return with the receipt it’s a cinch.

  • Sherilyn

    I plan on making these soon. What I am wondering is… Ding Dong for how Ling Long? Haha.
