I'd like to be an expert on something. I don't care what, I just want to have something that I am really, really good at doing. There are lots of things that I'm good at, but no one area at which I excel. So, a while ago, I put on my thinking cap , turned it on (if you were my kids, you'd press your nose and say, "Beep beep!") and I decided: Breakfast!
I LOVE breakfast. More importantly, breakfast loves me. If I skip breakfast, the whole day is shot. So, since I have to eat, and I love to eat, and breakfast makes me happy, it was a pretty easy decision.
I'm going to try different recipes, and perfect the art of breakfast food in my home. Here's my first breakfast experiment (and I won't catalogue them all...just the awesome or awful ones):
Crepes. So good, so versatile, so breakfast! I stuffed these with fresh strawberries that I had cut up, sprinkled with sugar and left overnight to "juice". I also spread strawberry jam on the crepe because I was afraid the berries would be too sour. Add a bit of whip cream, chocolate sauce and YUM! Next time, though, the batter needs to be more liquid. The crepes were a mite thick.
Orange juice always looks better in a wine glass - especially with a slice of orange.
Graedon gave it two thumbs up!
