A Tale of Three Breakfasts

Every once in a while, we fancy a cooked breakfast. A coffee and bacon roll don’t really count, and the last full fry up we had was at the hotel for my birthday in May.
Since I’ve been with SW, such goodies are still on offer and as long as I’m careful, I can have the bacon/ham, eggs, and most of the trimmings.

A good deterrent for me is only using 2 burners and my microwave, so hash browns, black pudding and sausages are missing from the plate, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, and I’ve heard that diet sausages are less tasty than the carton they come in. Hubby likes baked beans with his, but I prefer tomatoes.
I do have an itsy bitsy problem with fried bread, or ‘frying’ anything actually as I set the new smoke alarm off every blessed time, and nothing’s burning!

I love fried bread. I mean, Truly, Madly, Deeply.
It was one of the first things I learned how to cook, and it was not unusual for me to do myself a piece with a fried egg on top when I got home from school.
Cooked in lard (not dripping) at the time as oils weren’t part of Mum’s kitchen cupboard contents, it would turn out perfectly crunchy on both sides, and my egg had a lovely frilly brown edge over a runny centre. Great for dipping!
I can hear any nutritionists/dietitians/health experts amongst you gasping in horror, but believe me, my mouth is watering at the thought of that Celestial Fix from yesteryear which is a definite no-no now.

And so we come to our start to the day the other morning:

his-brreakfastHis breakfast:
one piece of fried bread (cut in half to savour twice), 2 slices of tomato, 4 slices of lean ham, scrambled egg and mushrooms.

my-breakfastMy breakfast (all Free foods, tomatoes and mushrooms being Speed food, and syn free):
3 slices lean ham, 2 large sliced tomatoes (less two slices), scrambled egg, 6 whole mushrooms.

Trust me, she had one small slice of ham and a scrambled egg. It was gone before I got the camera switched on!


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and have a terrible sweet tooth. Best friends are Hubby, our dog Maggie, Bro in NZ, MSM and MOH (and his dog). I am also a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we were once again house hunting until September. We now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.

    It’s great how we can still have a full English!!!!

  2. That looks lush!! I love bacon(fat trimmed off), eggs, beans, tomatoes, mushrooms etc. I am a bugger for toast dripping with real salted butter though, it is one of my many downfalls. Really want a proper breakfast now 🙂

    I know it may be cliched, but I do think breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Yours are great 🙂

  6. Maggie gives her paws up approval.
    I’m with you – tomatoes are always welcomed
