    I love brunch.  Yes, it's a pretty loose interpretation of the idea of the challenge, but it might be fun.  Brunch for a holiday gathering, west coast football party, a nice time to catch up with friends, or something simple on a late Sunday morning.  So many possibilities.  Frittata, quiche, scramble, hash, muffins, rolls, danish, crostata, french toast, pancakes, waffles, meat, smoked fish, fruit,  and all of it wrapped in bacon!  Or not.  Champagne optional.

    The challenge is on.  Enjoy!

    This is certainly off topic, but the memory came up again today. I drive people to and from doctor's appointments and such. One fellow I drove on a regular basis was Gyll Huff. He was quite a pleasant person with whom to chat. One day we were discussing childhood comfort foods on the 20 - 25 minute drive to his place. The net result is that we stopped at the grocery down the street from his apartment so he could get a loaf of white bread and a package of bologna, because our conversation really had him wanting a fried bologna sandwich.  He passed away a few weeks after that incident, and I was reminded of him as I drove another person to that same apartment complex.

    Back to your regularly scheduled challenge.

    That looks good! I love rice, but now days have to limit it to 1/4 cup cooked , makes my blood sugar go ballistic.

    Here's my brunch today: pork cutlets schnizels with cheese and tomato. Of course the bread is home made and all of this was an excuse for a glass of champagne brut cause i follow Hanks orders.


    Hellmann's didn't pay me a penny, go figure.

    I've made maple bacon, and I've made garlic bacon. Never both flavors together.  Hmm....

    Oh my gravy all over my two scoop rice (that's OMG! in my world)

    In Hawaii, for Brunch (Breakfast, lunch, which ever) we eat what's

    leftover from the day before... really, we're not too much on the whole

    egg thing ... Beef Stew and (steamed) Rice is a BIG THING!

    My favorite recipe is from the grocery store that I shopped at, but

    actually, everyone makes it this way.

    We leave for work SOOOOO early in the morning that lunch is BRUNCH every day!

    (my lunch hour was at 1000am, I didn't bother with breakfast)

    Gravy is a huge in Hawaii, can you tell? /img/vbsmilies/smilies/smile.gif

    This tasted better than it looks.  French toast with sauteed apples
