Gotta Have Milk At Breakfast

Breakfast is our ESN Scavenger Hunt this week.  Love eating breakfast on the weekends - eggs, bacon, pancakes, waffles, biscuits and sausage gravy.  I could eat breakfast anytime of the day.
I'm sort of trying a low-carb diet, so eggs, eggs, eggs and more eggs seem to be the main breakfast staple.  I found a wonderful Artichoke Mushroom Frittata recipe and make it quite often.  Just saute the artichoke hearts, fresh mushrooms and onion.  Then pour the scrambled eggs over top.  Just when it is about done, top with grated Greyere cheese and let it melt.  It is absolutely fantastic.
Nothing goes better with breakfast than a nice cold glass of milk.  Here is a beautiful vintage milk pitcher in pink flashed color over Platonite with a raised spout from Hazel-Atlas. Standing 5 1/2 inches tall, the pattern looks like the Hazel-Atlas ribbon pattern. 

You can find this Hazel Atlas Pink Milk Pitcher and other great vintage kitchen items at CAROLINABLUELADY Vintage Collectibles  

Artichoke Mushroom Frittata and cold milk served in this Platonite milk pitcher makes for a special breakfast.


  1. Wonderful post. Thank you for the recipe, sounds delicious, am going to try it this weekend.

  2. Often fix eggs with veggies. Artichokes are not on my list of "usual"veggies though. May have to try some...

  3. Great blog - love that you included the recipe!
