Breakfast 12/26/21

Scrambled eggs, pulled pork, home fries, biscuit

For the last 10 years or so, one of our Christmas traditions has been to go out for dinner and a movie. Our movie choice for this year, though, only had a 7:00 p.m. screening available, so we skipped a proper dinner out in favor of movie snacks. That turned out to be a bad choice, because the movie theater was mostly out of all their concessions, so after the movie I suggested we go out to breakfast the next morning.

This is the Cowboy Plate from the Ugly Mug Diner in our town. Having only eaten a bag of Reece’s Pieces for “dinner” the night before, I was rather hungry and wanted to make sure breakfast was protein-centric. I only ate a couple of bites of the home fries; I am not a big fan of home fries in the first place, and it the second place they were cold on the plate. But the eggs and the delicious pulled pork were just the ticket, and I walked away quite happy and full. You can request cinnamon butter with the biscuit, which is grilled, but I stuck to one little container of strawberry jam between the two halves. Can’t completely leave out something sweet.
