christmas_brunch_m-j_elegant_cook

A simple Christmas Day luncheon for two included home-made waffles, strawberries cooked with cane sugar  into an elegant sauce, heavy cream whipped with powdered sugar and vanilla, crispy bacon, chopped walnuts, maple syrup and butter. A percolator of Eight O’Clock Columbian Peaks coffee* stood ready to serve.©M-J de Mesterton, Christmas 2016

*Eight O’Clock coffee, the whole-bean Columbian Peaks, medium-roasted  variety, is my standard, as long as it’s available. I keep the opened, clipped bag in an air-tight red container as shown. Company instructions say to keep the beans or ground coffee at room-temperature, not in the freezer or refrigerator.

>Bar-S Bacon, the Old West’s Best

>Bar-S Bacon is the best that I have found in the U.S. When I was a child in the far west, we ate Cudahy Bar-S brand, which morphed into Cudahy and then became the Bar-S that we know today.
Sure, Neuske’s is supposed to be the very finest bacon, but it is not only expensive but difficult to find. Bar-S seems to be available in all fifty states!
