We wanted something hardy for breakfast this morning. Warm, filling, and most importantly paying homage to the last of the tomato season. So we started with fresh salsa and made mexican hash with scrambled eggs!
-Chop a couple of handfuls of whatever tomatoes you have found. Finely dice a small red onion. Juice half of a lime. Add a diced avocado. Chop of small handful of cilantro leaves. Add a pinch or two of salt, a little bit of pepper, and mix it all together. Voila.
2 tablespoons of olive oil
10 mini potatoes
1 Poblano peppers
1/2 red onion, sliced
1 Chorizo Sausages
1/4 cup of shredded of fresh mexican queso cheese
1 heaping tablespoon of Blue Dot spice
The brunch was a celebration for Jessica, as she had just completed her first half marathon. So we had to pop some bubbly, naturally. The wine we selected was Terregaie Fior d'Arancio DOCG from Colli Euganei in the hills of Veneto, Italy. The wine/appellation has just been granted a DOCG status (DOCG — Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita (controlled designation of origin guaranteed) and it is just starting to get recognized around the world for its amazing quality and style. Fior D'arancia means Orange Blossom in Italian, and the appellation is named after the distinct orange essances. The winemaker, Salvatore Lovo, from Terregaie was the driving force to have this wine style recognized as a DOCG and they have some of the oldest vines planted in their vineyards. It is made from 100% Moscato Giallo. It is lightly sweet with very low alcohol (6%) so it is a perfect brunch wine. Unfortunately you cannot find any of these wines in the province of Ontario, but you can replace it with the Batasiolo Moscato D'Asti DOCG Dla Rei, $14.95, #277194.
