Thank you to everyone who lamented my spectacular (or not-so spectacular) fall into the Portuguese fountain. I consider my lack of coordination just part of my charm.
Since my return from Portugal, I have found that it is easier for me to get up in the mornings. This is not normal for me so I have decided to take advantage of it and have a nice, leisurely morning instead of rushing out the door with the high probability that I only have mascara on one eye.
That is a very weird look, by the way.
Anyway, as I sat there this morning drinking coffee and eating breakfast, it occurred to me once again that I LOVE BREAKFAST. I mean, I really really love it. It is my favorite meal and I could eat at any time throughout the day.
Lately, I have been making my own organic egg and veggie frittata. In fact, I will have a recipe for you this week. I make it ahead of time and cut it into wedges and that way my breakfast is ready to go every morning. This comes in handy for the mornings I hit snooze for an hour.
I also love oatmeal. It is comfort food without the guilt. I like the old fashioned, organic kind and I buy it in bulk every time I go to the store. This is also my stash for the world's best oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, which I have eaten for breakfast, but that usually leads to a day of gluttony followed by the need to wear two pairs of Spanx. I try to avoid that; two pairs can cut off your circulation.
I add water to my bowl of oatmeal and nuke it for two minutes in the microwave. I then add a dash of milk, cinnamon, walnuts and Stevia. It is warm and fabulous and delicious.
I also adore waffles, yogurt and fruit, stuffed french toast, pumpkin pancakes, biscuits and gravy, corn beef hash, scones and bacon. I could literally devote an entire week's worth of blog material to bacon. In fact, I hear they now have bacon ice cream, bacon cupcakes and chocolate-covered bacon candy bars. I am not sure what to think about this but apparently people love their bacon. It could be the perfect food, next to peanut butter of course.
So, now that I am officially hungry again, what are your favorite breakfasts? And if you have a recipe or two, I would love to hear them!
