We have learned living where and how we do not to wait for tomorrow for what we can do today. That is especially true for cowboy breakfast. Snow is forecast for later this morning and in fact flurried almost all the while I was cooking breakfast outside. It would nave been nice to cook breakfast outside for Carol's birthday but we have several days of snow forecast between now and then. I don't want to shovel out the cook stove more than once a week.
Therefore we had my special potatoes, fixed just right and fried spam and eggs. Pretty hard to cook outside when the air temperature is freezing, in snow flurries, and the wood stove is cranking out as much heat as it can. It all worked out well though, and breakfast was especially good even with the cold and snow. Hard to tell when we will be able to do this again, maybe if we get a break in the winter weather it is possible, or then again, maybe Spring.
Takes a lot of work to shovel out the heavy snow around the cook stove. It also helps if you don't want an early lunch to get up and get going on preparation around 4:30 AM. Doing breakfast outside this time of year (even though we eat it inside) is a real labor of love. When we had friends recently in order to have it ready I had to get up at 4:00 AM in order to have it ready at 9:00 AM. Wish I had a scratch and sniff feature on this blog so all could at least enjoy the aroma.
