30 Days of Photos - Day 8 - Texture


Two eggs over-easy with sausage, rye toast, coffee and a large orange juice. Once a week or so I'll make the trek to the neighbourhood restaurant, Dinty's, for breakfast. This is usually what I'll have.

I'll carry along my iPad and read the latest e-book I'm into. When I took this picture last week it was MaddAddam by Margaret Atwood.

I switch it up once and awhile and have an omelette or eggs benedict but I'm such a regular the waitress whose section I always sit in brings me my coffee and large orange juice without even asking.

Look at the texture of the items on that plate, the eggs in particular.

It almost looks too good to eat.

But I did.

Don't forget to drop by Ziva's infernal blog to hook up with the rest of the insane people taking part in this challenge. Texture? Really?

Damn it all! Now I'm hungry and there's nobody around to fix me breakfast. You have a lot to answer for, Dufus!

That looks so yummy. Now I have to go cook myself breakfast. Commenting on the rest of the 30 Days photos can wait!

I'll save you a spot at Dinty's, Boom Boom.
babs (beetle) said…
That looks delicious, even if I'm not a fried breakfast person. Well, maybe once or twice a year I'll have one and I'm not yoking.
Great! I'll be there in about 5 hours. You will wait for me, won't you?
nonamedufus said…
Oh, absolutely. 5 hours? I might be able to get in a golf game while I'm waiting.
nonamedufus said…
It is delicious. I hope you don't find my breakfast habits rash.
babs (beetle) said…
Not at all and I shell say that they make me want a full English ;)
Agent 54 said…
Very nice. Lots of different textures there. I might dip the sausage in the egg yoke.
Cheryl said…
Yes, it does look almost too pretty to eat but dammit man, I'm starving. Please pass the salt.
ReformingGeek said…
Haha! No way is that too good to eat. It looks delicious. Nice job! Oh, you might want to check a mirror. You've got a bit of texture, er, egg, on your cheek.
nonamedufus said…
I don't know what a full English is but it sounds kinda naughty.
nonamedufus said…
I usually dip the rye toast in the egg or to be precise place a piece of drippy egg on a bite-size piece of toast. I know. I'm weird like that. It's why I eat alone.
nonamedufus said…
Uh-uh, no salt for me, Cheryl. Although having gone this far with my cholesterol levels a little salt may not make much difference.
babs (beetle) said…
Ha ha ha! It's Eggs, bacon, sausages, fried tomatoes and fried bread. Some add baked beans or fried potatoes too.
Cheryl said…
Don't tell me your cholesterol is sky high too? John is there anything that doesn't ail you? (BTW, I wasn't suggesting you should have salt, I wanted it and I have no limitations of my salt intake.)
Lauren said…
A perfect breakfast and wonderful way to enjoy it. Now I'm starving.
nonamedufus said…
I thought it was some humungous plate of cholesterol. Yum.
nonamedufus said…
Let's see. Cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure, yadda, yadda, yadda.
nonamedufus said…
Damn, happens all the time. With a beard I often enjoy breakfast all morning long.
nonamedufus said…
I love them but this looks far more appetizing than a Sausage & Egg McMuffin.
meleahrebeccah said…
And now I'm starving!
Cheryl said…
Oh sure, play the cancer card right up front with a big ol' capital letter. Not many of us can compete with that shit. I can, however, compete with yadda, yadda, yadda. I've got more of that going on than anything else.
nonamedufus said…
It does look inviting, doesn't it? I look forward to this every week.
nonamedufus said…
Actually, the cancer's under control these days. What with all the drugs I'm on I would hope so.
babs (beetle) said…
Now you know why I only have it once a year :)
Debra She Who Seeks said…
Did you have a hangover from all the beer on Day 7, LOL? A hearty breakfast could cure that!
nonamedufus said…
Ha, can't put anything past you.
meleahrebeccah said…
Very inviting indeed.
nonamedufus said…
You know what I love with breakfast? Pea meal or back bacon. My favourite.
Cheryl said…
That is fantastic news, John!


Now I need to get my back issues under control so I can get up to see you & Maryse.
babs (beetle) said…
Back bacon it the only one I eat, but what's pea meal?
nonamedufus said…
The two are very similar, but according to Wkipedia re: pea meal bacon: The name reflects the historic practice of rolling the bacon in ground dried yellow peas, although nowadays, it is generally rolled in yellow cornmeal.
Ziva said…
Oh yum! The eggs truly look perfect. And a million times better than the oatmeal I had for breakfast today.
nonamedufus said…
Probably not as healthy as your oatmeal, though. And I bet your oatmeal had lots of texture!
mike said…
What, no cheese?
Nicky said…
That looks delicious except it's missing some cheese. :-)
Nicky said…
Hah! Great minds!!
Jackal said…
nom nom drool - buuurp
Cheryl P. said…
Yum, looks good.
nonamedufus said…
When I make my own breakfast I use cheese. Eggs over easy and bacon and cheese on an English Muffin. Looks like this... It's the Dufus Special and it's delish.
nonamedufus said…
And I ate everything on the plate...except the fruit.
Hmmmm do you dip your potatoes in the runny egg? I have tried all my life to like runny eggs but just can't. They look SO good, but something about them... I just can't handle them. If you put that sucker "over hard" I would be all about it!
mikewjattoomanymornings said…
Oh no, it doesn't look too good to eat. It looks like it must be eaten. What a great idea for a photo, NoName. Your creativity is showing.
mikewjattoomanymornings said…
That looks positively unhealthy. I want you to make me breakfast.
nonamedufus said…
It's a picture. It's a breakfast. Stop. You're both right. This challenge is really tough when you have to go out for a great breakfast just to portray a prompt.
nonamedufus said…
I dip everything into that runny egg. I like any kind of eggs, but over-easy is my favourite. A close second would be Eggs Benedict.
nonamedufus said…
Next time you're nearby I'll do it.
Traci Shannon said…
It looks like very delicious textures.
:-)

nonamedufus said…
The most delicious, believe me.
MalisaHargrove said…
Yum! Let me know next time you are going and I will tag along. Will they put some tequila in that orange juice and make a tequila sunrise? If not, don't worry. I will slip a flask down my cowboy boot.
nonamedufus said…
I'm going Friday. If you start out now you might be able to meet me there. Oh, and tequila? No. Mimosas? Love 'em.

My Back Pages - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year. The six books I successfully waded through were, firstly, What Happened, Hillary Clinton's book on her bid for the Presidency. I''m a bit of a political junkie so I get off on this stuff but still it kinda struck me as one long whine over losing.
Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.
Next up was Lightfoot, a biography of Canadian folk singer Gordon Lightfoot. He may have been responsible for some iconic folk songs but he was also quite the womanizer and boozer. Enough said.
Then I read Dan Brown's new tome Origin, the fifth in the Robert Lan…

My Back Pages - November

I know, I know, I know I should have reported in before now. But sometimes real life just gets in the way. I attempted 5 books in November. I say attempted because I slapped a big DNF (did not finish) on Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. I just can't seem to get into this guy. It's the second or third of his I've given up on,

Not so the other four, starting with a biography of Stephen Stills called Change Partners. This followed by a hilarious biography of the guy responsible for National Lampoon called A Stupid and Futile Gesture - How Doug Kenney and National Lampoon Changed Comedy Forever.

I ended the month reading yet another biography, this one of the man behind Rolling Stone magazine,. It was called Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine. A fascinating read.

So last month I hit the magic number 50 I'd imagined for myself back in January. If I roll this month into my yearly total I'm at 54 books. And I still have Decem…
