Mouthwatering Dish

Robert and Gail were testing some of Brian’s breakfast creations at The Old Manse Inn and gave a two thumbs up!

Baked Egg Florentine w/ Hollandaise Touch

Taking some liberties on the standard Florentine recipe, I combined the fresh eggs with a mixture of cottage, feta & paremesan cheeses along with a healthy sampling of vitamin-rich spinach. After it came out of the oven piping hot, I added just a spoonful of warm mustard hollaindaise to the top to spice up the taste buds!



Yummy Dishes

Today’s Special Breakfast Dish:

Curacao Fruit Splash

This new recipe actually tasted better than I think it looks! The tasty chunks of banana, apple, orange & pear are doused with a warm mixture of juices, brown sugar & just a hint of orange curacao. The fruit just bathes in the juices until cold & ready to serve!

Pumpkin Nut Belgian Waffle

This is another newbie to the breakfast collection –and what a great way to test out the new double waffle maker! Add some pumpkin puree & toasted pecans to the usual belgian waffle recipe, serve it with fresh & hot blueberry compote and you have something truly UNusual! It’s the nuts that make it the ‘tastiest’ I think.

Riding for Cancer

Every year we are fortunate to witness one of the most challenging bike rides. The Pan Mass Challenge otherwise known as the PMC. The route brings over 5000 cyclists past the Old Manse Inn. I believe most people have been touched by cancer is some way and I admire this group of amazing people who take on this challenge. The training they go through to accomplish this ride is difficult. During the winter months they spend three days a week on an indoor bike. Beginning in May they go outside and start cycling, each week increasing the distance. One gentleman would rise a 3:15 AM to ride then hit the gym to lift weights and attend a spinning class. All this before heading to work at 7 am.

The PMC was founded by Billy Starr about 36 years ago when a group of 36 rode 220 and raised $10,200 for the Jimmy Fund. This year cyclists committed to raising $500 to $4300 depending on the length of their ride. Most exceed the minimum fundraising contribution. The fundraising goal for 2013 was $38 million. It is a very impressive organization.

There are options for the routes they chose. We had the good fortune of a rider come and stay with us as a guest at Old Manse Inn after his ride from Sturbridge to Bourne. Thank you Peter for a such a great ride.

There are one day routes and the big 2 day route from Sturbridge to Provincetown staying at the Mass Maritime Academy on Saturday. night. Some cyclists leave as early as 4:30 am and we begin to see them ride past Old Manse Inn as early as 6:20. We always make the time to stand curbside and cheer them on as they get close to finishing. Only 26 more miles. Every one of them have some emotional connection to the cause. I know I do and as I applaud them for riding there’s a tear in my eye.
