What did you have for breakfast today?

  • My usual oatmeal concoction, but with the addition of a teaspoon of top-quality peanut butter stirred in.


    Oh my word.... breakfast nirvana. Just one teaspoon - what a difference. But this won't be a frequent thing. Maybe once a month to keep it special.


    Plus my usual mug of tea but annoyingly it didn't seem to brew properly, it was pale and weak despite my careful addition of barely a teaspoonful of milk. I like tea to be bordering on creosote (in colour, not taste).

    Abandon all reason

  • Big ol' bacon, egg and cheese sandwich on an everything bagel, with regularly applied dashes of Tabasco sauce. Washed down with a big, black Americano.


    What's vacation for if not eating things you wouldn't normally eat in a blue moon, at sensible times of day when you would otherwise be working?


    Sure, I felt like a beluga whale for a couple of hours but it was worth it.

    You still felt that hungry?!


    I recently found a bottle of scotch bonnet sauce on sale in our local farm shop at reduced price so it had to be acquired. Man alive, it's that sweet spot just between pain and pleasure but just far enough on the pleasure side to work.

    Sounds divine. I'm a sucker for nice hot sauces, especially smaller batch fancy stuff. I've only found two or three that are too hot. One was called "million pepper sauce", acquired at a border crossing shop. Full of chopped up California reapers, I assume the name was an allusion to its point on the scoville scale.


    Anyway, more modest this morning. A blood orange, some strawberries and grapes, a two bite orange cranberry scone and the customary black coffee (locally roasted beans as always, drip coffee this time around).
