REPOST TO CORRECT SPELLING....OH, NO......ANOTHER BREAKFAST at bj's....

I'm so sorry to put you through yet ANOTHER breakfast but....
since it's my very favorite meal, I seem to always be taking a photo of it !
My thanks to SUSAN at BETWEEN NAPS ON THE PORCH

Thank you to MICHAEL LEE at DESIGNS BY GOLLUM

*
Be sure to stop by these two great places for lots of eye-candy, recipes and inspirations...
*
I went shopping a little bit at ROSS the other day..
I seldom go there because it's across town from our cottage...
but I have been noticing that a lot of you have found some really cute things there...
*


The very first thing I spied was this
sassy rooster and....I WAS IN LUV !!
Why, I just think he is the cutest thing I've seen in a while...
and I KNEW he would bring so much cheer to my
breakfast table....
*

Then, the very NEXT thing I saw....
POLKA DOTS....
Green and white Polka dots and, boy, did they look great up beside this sexy little rooster...
All they had were these two little bowls and that saucy little pitcher....
but...I knew they would go great with my plain white, Pier 1 dishes...
and....they do!
*




I put together such a delicious summertime breakfast for Mr. Sweet and myself...
Since we were up so early, we could eat our light breakfast out on our front porch and watch our little pet family of Robins play in our birdbath....
*************

KOLACHE with sausage,cheese and hot peppers...
Puffed rice cereal with sliced strawberries..
a Texas Ruby Red grapefruit half...
and a pecan cinnamon roll...
*I grew up on these cinnamon rolls, bought at the grocery store and I think, Mrs. Baird brand...my daddy loved them and we had them around pretty often. I like mine warmed in a skillet, buttered OF COURSE, and pretty brown and crispy on the bottom..then, flip it and heat on the other side..not too long or you'll melt all the icing off....O Honey!!......these are so good warmed that way..
Hot tea and sweet coffee..


First, we had a seat on the swing, at the end of our porch...
WAAAAY too hot, already...
glaring Texas sun and mosquitoes were swarming, even at this early morning hour!!
*

...they tried to get my strawberries, too !!
*
Then, we moved to the other end of the porch; sitting on our cottage white bench..
Still in full sun...so hot, we could barely breath, let alone eat....
*

"We're just going to have to move back inside, under the air conditioner and away from all these bugs!"
said 'always right', Mr. Sweet....
"OK !"
******************
I planted a few little cone flowers and golden daisies
and someone on Face Book asked,
"Can you use those for ice cream?"
and I said, "Noooo...I didn't plant waffle cones!!"
********

I do hope these little flowers grow and multiply
in my backyard garden...
I am not know for my green thumb!! :(
~~~~~~
ANYWAY.....we DID move our breakfast back inside....





.......................and....we lived happily

ever after...
***
HAVE A HAPPY, BEAUTIFUL DAY.....

BJ... I went to Ross last week... we didnt' have a cool rooster to buy! love the polka dots! great bargains... sorry you didn't get to dine on the porch... our front porch is where all the dining goes on... it faces South and is surrounded by big shade trees... thank goodness Ricky thought of planting them 30-years ago!

I'm sick of this hot weather already! Hot even for Texas! I'm ready for September... how 'bout you!

Ross and Marshalls, my two favorite places to find cute kitchen stuff and I love stuff.

Now, I don't have a country look at the tiki hut, but I never would have been able to resist that rooster!

As far as I'm concerned the star of the show is not the food, it's that delectably darling Rooster...I LOVE THAT ROOSTER!!!
hugs
Sandi

Kathleen Grace said...

Such cute things, I keep seeing all the pretty things people find at Ross and we just don't have that store around here:>( Sorry it's so hot down there, it's a cool 55 degrees right now at 7:50 a.m. in Michigan although it is supposed to reach 80 today. Why don't you pack up that scrumptious breakfast and come stay awhile?:>)

LADY JANE'S EMPORIUM said...

BJ my Sweetness...again you have outdone yourself! Really...I kid around...but I'm gonna show up at your door(in my polka-dot dress of course) to sit on your porch and have one of those breakfasts!

Fifi Flowers said...

I popped over at the right time... I'm in need of breakfast and it looks PERFECT!

Anonymous said...

You did find a "big" sassy rooster! Love it! Looks just like one of your "pets". For some reason a couple of your pictures wouldn't come up on your blog today and every time I'd click on them a "Broadband note" would come up, but I got to see that great rooster. He's so pretty! The pictures from yesterday's blog are the same way today and I was going to enjoy them again today. Boo Hoo! Oh well, soaked up lots of beauty in them yesterday. Great post me lady!

Love,
Martha

laurie @ bargain hunting said...

That rooster IS the cutest thing, and I'm loving the polka dots! Your flowers look really healthy to me and so pretty. About those cin. rolls, am I ever ready to take a bite of one of those warmed in a skillet with butter!!! I've got to try that! laurie

Bill said...

Fun, fun post! I went through a "Ross phase" a couple of years ago. I'm going to have to put Ross back on my "to do" list!

Thank you, BJ, for leaving the thoughtful comment. I like your personality too!!!!

Bye for now,
Bill @ Affordable Accoutrements

Rhondi said...

Hi bj
What a delicious looking breakfast you have there. That little rooster is so pretty and I love the polka dot dishes. I always enjoy your sense of humor when I read your blog. We have the same problem here for eating outside, too hot and too many mosquitoes!
Hope you have a good weekend.
((hugs)) Rhondi

Betty said...

Everything just looks so pretty! I am in love with the tea towel the most though everything just looks so good together. You have sure got a knack for this. You could just put fruit trees on your farm, they take not maintenance, won't die or nothing even if you don't tend to them. lol
Have a great day!

Betty

Mary said...

I loved every frame of this charming post. Thank you for sharing your tricks and breakfast menu with us.
Have a wonderful day.

Christi @ A Southern Life said...

A sassy rooster, polka dots and sausage kolaches? Can't beat that! Stay away from those pesky mosquitoes.

Christi

Kathleen said...

Well you did well! No Ross here, but if I ever get near one, I am going in with a big pocketbook..:)
I love your finds..polka dots are so cheerful..
Breakfast looks good. I make Kolache, a Polish pastry, but it looks different..smaller and fruit in the middle...
Happy weekend!

SmilingSally said...

You are addicted to polka dots. I know you have black and white, now green and white ... where will it end?

Melissa Miller said...

This is gorgeous and so much fun! Love it all! ;)

Deanna said...

Lovin' that sassy Rooster! Your breakfast looks splendid...oh those Mrs. Bairds treats, how I miss them and the August Pies! I live at Ross and it's hard to tear myself away from there...especially since I live 1 whole minute away from it!

XoXo,
Deanna :D

SavoringTime in the Kitchen said...

I adore the rooster and the polka dot bowls! What a beautifully served breakfast.

Pam said...

I love your rooster! Just don't let him get you up too early. Our Texas Heat has hit here so from the house to the store and always in our air conditioning. The breakfast looks yummy.
