We had a blizzard a few weeks ago. I miss it (which I realize is because I could stay inside, safe and warm and dry). Our lazy, snowy, post-holiday mornings made for some excellent breakfast opportunities.
Ruby red grapefruit (no sugar needed) and jalapeno-cheddar bagel with cream cheese. Thanks, Dan, for shoveling and stamping through the snow to the store to get the provisions!
"American Pancakes" from Nigella Lawson's How to Be a Domestic Goddess and homemade cranberry curd (loosely based on a recipe in the same book).
Here's a tip: if you make more batter than you need, cook up all the pancakes anyway and freeze or refrigerate them. Throw the leftovers in the toaster to heat and eat when you feel like it. Pancake batter doesn't keep well, but cooked pancakes do.
Let it snow, breakfast-lovers!
