Home is. . .

Wow! Two posts in one day! Someone alert the news!

Sandy over at Reluctant Entertainer is starting a weekly "Home is. . ." linky party on Wednesdays and I wanted to party with her. . . thus the reason for the second post. Sandy is the ultimate homemaker and hostess. She has a wealth of great ideas and information for entertaining simply on her site. You really should go check her out. She shows you that you don't have to have fancy china, crystal wine glasses, a ton of money or a caterer to entertain wonderfully. It's not about the stuff and fancy gourmet food but about the experience with family and friends! Let Sandy show you how and click on the button at the bottom of this post!

Every week Sandy is setting the theme for her "Home is. . ." party. I really love this idea! It makes you slow down, think and look at something that you may not have noticed otherwise.

So this week's theme is "Home is. . .a delicious scent."

A delicious scent. When I said that out loud to myself, I immediately thought of candles. I burn one every day. I just started burning a new one yesterday. . . Mango Cooler. Yummy!

However, I didn't want candles to be my "Home is. . ." feature today. I wanted something that I most likely overlooked before. . . something that made me appreciate something I had overlooked.

And then it hit me!

Breakfast!

Not just any breakfast but an eggs, toast and bacon breakfast!

And not just any eggs, toast and bacon but my Mom's eggs, toast and bacon!

I can almost smell it now! Yum!

Honestly, how often do you make all three in the mornings?

If you are like us, you don't. Life is just too busy that we don't have the time to dirty a pan for the bacon, a pan for the eggs and then have to clean up the stove top from frying the bacon before we scurry off to work and school.

It's also not the most healthiest of breakfasts anyway.

The picture above is of a breakfast I made for myself. It's a bacon and cheddar omelette with a side of orange marmalade toast. This is not what I'm talking about when I talk about my Mom's. She makes us dippy eggs with our toast and bacon.

What are dippy eggs? Apparently you are not from Western Pennsylvania if you have to ask. :)
Yum! They are eggs over medium and cooked just enough to make the whites not runny. . . so you can "dip" your toast into the yolk.

I don't remember how often she used to make this breakfast for us. Maybe it's more of a grown up memory because every time we go back home to visit and spend the night, she is sure to be waking us up to the smell of bacon coming from her country kitchen.

It's amazing how a little thing like a home cooked breakfast made by your Mother to make you feel like a spoiled kid again!


Have Fun! Pin It

We love a hot breakfast and I cook one almost every day of the week! It's a nice way to start out the day.

There's nothing like hot breakfast and the smell of bacon! YUM. I still enjoy making breakfast for my kids, too. Thanks for linking up Cindi! Fun post!

Oh I love the beautiful memory you gave us with your mouth watering picture!
I admit the smell of bacon is just torturous!
Blessings,

I thought we were the only ones to call them "dippy eggs". (in WV) But really, what ELSE would you call it??
