We live in such times as that where we don’t have time for a good meal to kick start the day because the day has already been kick-started and we’ve been dragged along, hanging on to the handlebars for dear life.
Oh, and the price of food and other household items suck too.
But if you can, and when you can, get up a bit earlier and make a nice breakfast for yourself and loved ones, sit down, eat, and say, fuck it, I’m having a good meal I don’t care what the rest of the world is doing. Try it this weekend:
Eggs, scrambled; Salmon, smoked:
3 large eggs or 4 medium eggs
100 ml full cream milk
1/3 cup shaved parmesan cheese
50g smoked salmon
chives or parsley, finely chopped
freshly cracked fresh pepper
25g unsalted butter
2 thick slices bread (ciabatta, white, focaccia etc)
1/2 cup cherry tomato
rocket or spinach)
Combine eggs and milk in a bowl, melt butter on skillet on low heat until it bubbles, then pour eggs in, stir continuously until it cooks, then pour half the parmesan in, and keep stirring.
Turn off the heat, then stir in smoked salmon. Pepper to taste, and serve on toasted bread, top with remaining parmesan and chives. (serves 2)
More recipes can be found at this nifty website called Open Source Food (my page there), which I found via Uncle Dee’s Project Trattoria, where there are also recipes to be found.
