Eggs, Bacon & Jimmy Chew


Jimmy Chew gets very excited when it's time for a trip in the car. With the exception of the dreaded vet, when that car door opens he knows he's normally being taken somewhere new and exceedingly sniffable. Alex had a rare day off work so we decided to take Jimmy with us for some brunch in Crouch End.


I'd love for Jimmy to be a therapy dog one day. It's impossible not to notice the big smiles he brings to so many faces when I take him out. He is such a friendly, gentle-natured boy and people just adore him. So why not put this to good use? I could take him into hospitals and old people's homes for cuddles! Everyone's a winner! But first I need to train him not to lick...that could take a little time.


We spotted a busy little cafe called Beam along the high street. It had tables outside and a decent breakfast menu so we settled there for some food.


Introducing Alex's fry up! How delicious and non-greasy does this look?


Alex was impressed. 

My smoked salmon obsession continued but this time it was accompanied by pleasingly moist scrambled egg (it's a huge bugbear of mine when it's over-cooked) and yummy grilled halloumi cheese. Three of my favourite things coming together to make one lovely, fresh breakfast. 


Appetite satisfied, it was off to Priory Park for a long walk in the autumn sun. A lazy Thursday with my two favourite people (well, person and pup) lay ahead; we had no real plans. 

Don't you just love days like that?

  3. As you can imagine smoked salmon is one of my breakfast favourites too, and I love it with poached eggs. This looks like such a nice day and I love the shadow photo.

  4. Both of these breakfasts look fantastic and I'm especially intrigued by the addition of the halloumi with the smoked salmon and scambled eggs. Was it a good enough combination to have again? Fantastic photos, and you have a seriously adorable dog!

  10. His face when he is walking down the street with you, the best!!! Such a great idea about a therapy dog, because he has plenty of sass to cheer people up.

  12. Jimmy! He looks so dapper. The food looks delicious as well. Grilled Halloumi is so tasty, I'd never put it with salmon and egg though! I guess the flavours worked!!

    1. I put the halloumi with the salmon and eggs, it wasn't like that on the menu. Basically it's because I told them to hold the bread and I wanted a carb-free replacement. Cheese is always a very good answer for me! :D

  13. That breakfast looks sooo good! I love smoked salmon and eggs, and that addition of halloumi on the side too...hello!
    And of course your wee pup is adorable!

  15. I love autumn and lazy breakfasts, such a great way to spend the day. Ps I love the fry up, not sure I could handle four pieces of bacon though. xx

  16. The food was clearly fantastic, we were there for over three hours, and some of the guests were before that too. I had a salad with added shrimp and absolutely loved it!
