How To Do Breakfast in Bed
Happy Birthday to my better half of JENRON DESIGNS, Ron Gainer!!! “As you wish, you shall have your favorite breakfast, in bed. What shall I make you?”
I feel that if you are making breakfast in bed for the birthday boy, it should really be something he loves. Ron’s favorite breakfast meal as a child was “Toad in the Hole”. For those of you unfamiliar with “Toad in the Hole”, it consists of a sunny side up egg dropped into a piece of toast with a hole torn into it. Personally, I would like to make him something a little more grown up, so how about a double sunny side up fried egg.
Culinary Tip: You can create different egg shapes with a cookie cutter. Just place the cookie cutter into your lightly greased skillet and drop egg or eggs inside to create a fun breakfast shape. I picked a heart shape cookie cutter from Sur La Table to show my honey some love!

I placed the egg on top of toast, instead of inside, to keep the toast from getting soggy. It provides him with extra toast for dipping, since in a traditional toad in hole you tear out the center the toast. I added a double side of applewood smoked bacon which happens to be another one of his favorites. I rounded it out with a side of yogurt topped with granola, coffee and juice for the perfect breakfast in bed. So did you notice that I arranged the food to spell out xox, for hugs and kisses……yeah it’s the details and little things for me.
I love this sweet little juice carafe, it is actually a 2 pc.Water Carafe Set, from which can be monogrammed by Cathy’s Concepts. I find myself using this style carafe in so many places. You know how I really love a good multi tasking item, and must have two differnt uses minimum. Over the years I have used this style carafe in the bathroom for mouthwash, and also in a guest room for water. In this scenario it makes a perfect juice dispenser for breakfast in bed, and absolutely no accidental spills.
The Beechwood Folding Bed Tray above was actually a wedding gift, while we did not actually register for it, we are so glad we got it and we use it all the time. Can you believe it is still available today, almost 20 years later? This just shows that when it is a good quality product, with classic style, it truly can last forever. I guess it is true- “Good Design Never Goes Out of Style, It’s a Way of Life”- Jennifer Gainer
