A Perfect Weekend Breakfast

A Perfect Weekend Breakfast

Mmmmm. The perfect weekend breakfast, it comes in many, many forms, but it’s cooked over an open fire. Not much in this world beats making breakfast over the fire in the early hours of the morning while the world is quiet – or, as quiet as it’s likely to get.

And, it’s actually doable for a lot of us – more of us than most of us believe. After all, I live in Brooklyn, NY and I do it. I put a small fire pit/grill in my back court for just this purpose. In fact, when this post goes live, that’s probably where I and what I’m doing.

The 7 Train & The fireworks
NYC, The Night Of The 4th

And here’s a stunning picture of the IRT Flushing Line aka the 7 train from the 4th of July. In my opinion, absolutely beautiful and evocative.

I’ll Always Take A Slice

I’ll Always Take A Slice Of Pizza

Oh yeah! Pizza! Both one of my favorite food and, in my opinion, one of the best foods around, being economical, “diverse,” and suitable for both sit-down dining and on-the-go scarfage. 😉

Many Fine Mornings

Many Fine Mornings Have Started This Way
Many Fine Mornings Have Started This Way

I’m proud to say that many fine mornings have started this way for me, mostly in the Spring and Fall months when the weather calls to me to start the day with coffee over a fire.

A Solid, Country Breakfast
A Solid, Country Breakfast Is The Right Choice

And then, once my blood stream has been returned to its properly caffeinated state, I and my family like a hearty, country style breakfast cooked over and eaten around that same fire.

And yes, even though I and my family live in Brooklyn, this is a common breakfast scenario for us. I’ve got a good-sized grill/offset smoker out front and a smaller pit grill in our rear court. Both charcoal, not freaking gas or those pellet things. Proper charcoal as the God(s) intended. 😉

It’s all part of being who you are and doing what you love, irrespective of where you find yourself at any given time.
