Saturday and German Farmer's Breakfast

There was some sewing here yesterday.  A long time friend spent the day with me.  She quilted a quilt she had made for her daughter on my quilt frame and did an excellent job on it.  I think her daughter will love it!
I did some more sewing on the baby quilt and finished sewing all the half blocks.  Perhaps today I will get them joined and start putting that top together.  I did all my sewing yesterday on my treadle machine.  I know it may be silly, but it just thrills me to sew perfect little seams on a machine that was made in 1927, especially one that doesn't even require electricity.

This morning Mr. Muddling was so kind and let me sleep in a bit.  Miss Lady has played havoc with my normal sleep.  Just like a human baby, she needs a lot of attention.  Anyway, I decided to reward him with one of his favorite Saturday breakfasts.

Of course it doesn't hurt that it's one of mine, too.

The combination of tastes is just perfect!

German Farmer's Breakfast
6 slices of bacon, cooked until crisp and then crumbled
4 large potatoes - peeled, cubed and boiled until just tender
Saute half of a small onion and half a green pepper in either butter or bacon drippings.  Add bacon and potatoes, mix gently.  Top with 6 eggs, lightly beaten.  Cook on low until eggs are set, using a spatula to gently turn and mix.
Top with 1/2 cup shredded cheese, whichever kind you prefer.  I used cheddar. 
 When cheese has melted, mix lightly and enjoy.
 We had some lovely fresh from the oven biscuits with ours.  Delicious!
Hope you've had a good Saturday!
Hugs and love,

Yum! Just hold on a bit - I'm coming over for breakfast!!
Love the treadle. It is just like the one I have from my mother. I actually made my wedding dress on one of these machines. Wow - that was a long time ago!

It was so nice of your husband to fix breakfast. Sounds like it was very good. I would love some of those biscuits with butter and jelly. Sounds like you and your friend had a great time sewing. Good for friends to get together and do hobbies together. Have a wonderful week.

What a sweet husband you have and it looks delicious.. You are quilting up a storm and I can't get myself in gear long enough to sew a stitch.. Winter will be over one of these days and I'll be outside in the flower beds..I'll miss the quilting then..

Those oldie but goodie machines are so accurate. I make a version of that breakfast but it is a lot of work. At least I think so. My one daughter loves when I make it.
