Ultimate Breakfast: Eggs with Lamb Fried in Bone Marrow

O.M.G.  What have I done?  How will I ever top this ULTIMATE breakfast?

The day started out like any other Saturday.  My boyfriend and I slept in, he claimed the bathroom, and I started making breakfast.  I hadn’t planned on anything special, but then I noticed the leftover roast lamb sitting in the fridge, and I thought “lamb for breakfast?  Is that too much?  Hell no!”.  But frying up some lamb in boring old olive oil didn’t seem too exciting, I knew I could take it to the next level.  Then I remembered all the tasty bone marrow sitting in a mason jar from the bone broth we’ve been regularly making.  Fry up the tender lamb in some rich bone marrow?  Now we’re talking!  There also happened to be some Prince Edward County rye bread that I picked up from Costco this past week, and since I’d gone this far, I added some fried tomato slices on the side.  Whoa!  Can you handle all this goodness?

My boyfriend was mightily impressed when he came down the stairs for breakfast and needless to say, this ultimate breakfast held us over until dinner time.

I am the breakfast master.

Sandbanks Provincial Park

We picked a perfect day to go snowshoeing in Sandbanks Provincial Park.  The sun was glinting off the crisp white landscape, and the clear blue sky highlighted the mist in our breath.  Laying down the first set of tracks in the fresh snow is always such a satisfying feeling and for a moment, the world feels is still with only the crunching sound of footsteps echoing through the woods.  The best feeling of all however, is returning home to a cozy wood burning stove and warming up with some hot tea and a greasy breakfast.
