a week of breakfast

I think by now it is quite obvious that breakfast is my favourite meal of the day. When I was living in Berlin my sister came to visit. I made us sweet potato hash and fresh smoothies. We made pancakes and poached eggs. We ate good German breads and cheeses. This was all in the morning before she went off exploring and I went off to work. We're talking breakfast and not brunch. "Do you eat breakfast like this every morning," she asked. Well, yes. I once worked at a restaurant whose motto is that life is too short for bad burgers. I feel the same way about breakfast.

I may have books to read and texts to write, but this past week I have mostly focused on getting my groove back in the kitchen. And what a delicious week it was. I thought that I would share some of my breakfasts. A recipe or two will follow next week.

I love your blog.

Every single one of these sounds perfect! Savoring breakfast makes the rest of the day more special. I'm totally with you on its value.

Hi Sophie,

The book is a worthwhile read. It is short and it will make you laugh and laugh and laugh.

Be warned, at times you might even be tempted to spit out your breakfast due to laughter!
