November Morning's Breakfast - Easy Low Carb

Happy first Saturday in November! This morning we awoke to temps in the 50s for a change. It finally feels like fall. The leaves are changing colors and falling and hopefully our unseasonably hot weather is behind us. We've had temps in the 80s, near 90 this past week which is entirely too hot for this time of year. The poor little trick or treaters were sweating as they ran from house to house this past Monday night. When I awoke to a chill in the air, I was actually in the mood to make a hot breakfast. Last night hubby and I went to Costco after work and picked up bags of fresh cranberries and baby brussels sprouts. So, the only logical thing to make for breakfast this morning was Brussels-Bacon & Onion Hash, a red bell pepper and spicy cheese omelet and Cranberry Pecan Twirls! It was YUMMY! I snapped a quick photo of my plate this morning. This past week I made yogurt in my Instant Pot for the second time. I've got it straining in the fridge now to make it into Greek Yogurt, The first time I made vanilla bean yogurt and this time I made just plain. It turned out great but I've decided it is definitely not a weeknight project for me and next time I will make it on the weekend.

Now that the temps are cool today, we've got one more crape myrtle to plant outside and we are done with yard work for the season. I have all winter long to ponder what to plant in the spring!  We are finally settling into the new house after 3 months. We actually have pictures on the wall and it's beginning to look and feel like home. It is still a work in progress. I thought I had the last kitchen project done a few weeks ago (or so I thought). We replaced the old white kitchen sink with a huge single bowl black cast iron sink and new faucet (my granite counters are black with silver, gray and copper flecks). Unfortunately we found the sink was cracked on one corner after it was installed, so we've got a new one on order. Check out my first November weekend breakfast. It has all my favorite things in it!
