Eggs Benedict-Ish

20140601_122658I woke up today with the thought of Eggs Benedict. Of course we had none of the ingredients to make it. And to top it off the annual Marina Marathon and fun run was on and it was near impossible to leave the marina berths let alone get out on the only road into the marina. Not to be thwarted in the food battle I made eggs Benedict-Ish. I used multigrain bread for the toasted muffin, sliced avocado for the spinach, canned kippered herring for the ham, genuine fresh poached egg and a packet of Maggi instant Hollandaise sauce. After that I thought seared portobello mushroom and yellow tomato couldn’t hurt either. Breakfast of champions!

I do Like A Big Breakfast

20140927_140325 While It won’t earn best meal of the trip this Breakfast from Raewood Fresh Cafe was pretty bloody good anyway. The poached eggs were close to being the star with the mushrooms not far behind. Add the oven roasted tomato and some nice kiwi bacon and it was a pretty good way to break the fast, despite it being eaten at 1.45pm. Paula went for the Buckwheat and Blueberry Pancakes and she enjoyed them too.


This is the slice of coconut blueberry slice that the owner of the cafe GAVE us for mum after he heard about her having the vapours, very cool gesture.

304 klm Breakfast

20130911_135705 This would have to be about my 20th Big Bavarian Breakfast. We used to live in the Whitsunday Islands and found this breakfast in Airlie Beach. After a night of Drinking on a friends yacht and only just finding our way back to our own boat (an hour and half searching) we woke to horrible hangovers. Not entirely our own fault, the offending friend has a still on board and plied us with free liquor. Anyway mid morning we motored ashore to try to alleviate the hurt we were suffering. After a short walk and several minutes trying to focus on the menu board in the tropical sun I found the BBB all day breakfast. The venue was Harry’s Corner Cafe a fairly innocuous looking place that turned out to be a haven of good value and food. Since that day I have only ever had the BBB. One, I really do like it and two, I don’t want to try anything else and risk being dissapointed. All their other food looks and smells good too and Paula loves the Fruit Pancakes you see here and often tries to get me to have them but NO! Harry’s is where I go for my Breakfast! even though this particular one was eaten at 2pm. Here I am a rasher of bacon and more than half a sausage in when I thought to get the picture. How much do I like my Big Bavarian Breakfast? Well we no longer float a stones throw away from Harry’s Corner Cafe. It is a 152klms each way, so as the title suggests that’s a round trip of 304klms. 20130911_135701
