I’m having a very late breakfast at the 3rd Coast on Deerborn & Goethe. I had a western with potatoes and fruit. This place is awesome. The staff
Midtown Manahattan, NY - I had breakfast this morning at Norma’s at the Parker Meridien. I love Norma’s and been going there since the mid 90′s. I confess it’s been a couple of years since my last visit. When I arrived the dining area was the same wonderful light airy atmosphere I remember so well. The host and wait staff always so charming and pleasant. I sat among a variety of beautifully dressed people speaking various languages and in English with lovely accents. Oh I was in heaven surrounded by fine looking men dressed in Paul Smith suits, Thomas Pink shirts, and Ferragamo shoes.
Norma’s is the place for the tantalizing breakfast. Known for unusual blends of herbs and spices, Norma’s chefs take the usual and make it special. Like the eggs Florentine sautéed spinach, smoked apple wood bacon with fingerling potatoes and the Arepa with Columbian corn cake and eggs sunny side. I did desire the Chocolate Decadence French Toast covered in strawberries, pistachios and Valrhona Chocolate Sauce but held back making plans for a return for a late brunch on the weekend for that item.
But much to my surprise, or I just don’t recall from my earlier days visit, was listing on the menu for the Zillion Dollar Lobster Frittata. My mouth gaped as I gawked at the price. Norma’s does a lovely tasty breakfast. Well I’ll have to return some day with my fine man dressed in his Paul Smith suit, Thomas Pink shirt with Ferragamo shoes and 8 figure income for that brunch treat.
Inspired by a comment on Daily Eats about Nutella Pancakes, this morning I got up early headed to the market to buy the ingredients for nutella pancakes for Porscha. Our nutella pan-cakes included nutella, peacans, strawberries, and whipped cream. The pancake mix is organic. It was Yummy!
Spring has finally sprung because my allergies are in full bloom today. Ordinarily I would podcast, but you would not be able to understand me with my nose so stuffed up.
I had some ingredients left over from last night’s Cinco de Mayo dinner:
Newman’s Medium Chunky Salsa
Tery’s tantalizing black beans
Low fat sour cream
Mission Carb Balance Tortillas
Horizon Organic Monterey Jack Cheese
Added 2 Mainland Organic Valley Large Brown Eggs.
And then I whipped up breakfast.
I fried the eggs in teaspoon of olive oil.
Boiled the black beans down to a more creamery consistency and added a half of teaspoon of Jack Cheese and cilantro.
Built the foundation with tortilla, next the 2 fried eggs dash of sea salt and pepper, thin layer of salsa, black beans, then another layer of salsa topped with guacamole and ½ of teaspoon of sour cream.
Organic Guacamole recipe: 1 Organic Haas avocado properly mashed, organic garlic finely diced, finely chopped cilantro, table spoon of fresh organic lime juice, sea salt to taste.
