November Photo a Day Challenge - Day 3
Breakfast - quite possibly my favourite meal of the day! Weekends especially as the pace in our house is alot slower - we stay in pj's for a lot longer, we watch movies and have a long lazy breakfast. The breakfast of choice in our house on weekends is always bacon and eggs. While the kids opted for this today I decided on a slight variation (see photo above) - yum! And usually with a pot of tea. If Mr H is in for breakfast (he has gone on a cycle race this morning) we will have a pot of lovely strong coffee.
During the week the boys and I have been having a sneaky cooked breakfast or two - Tom now asks for bacon and eggs most mornings! If we have a "slow" home morning during the week I will cook up bacon and eggs for our breakfast.
Slow mornings...............I love these and try and have one during the busy week day where the boys can stay in their pj's if they want to, they play - inside and out, watch movies etc. The pace is slow, no rushing to get out of the house and off to week day activities like playcentre, kindy or swimming. I appreciate and relish these mornings. Life in everyones household is so busy these days it is nice to slow down not FEEL that we MUST get out and do something. There is always plenty to do at home and I think the boys love it.
What's your favourite breakfast treat? Do you love slow mornings?
P.S. for my scrambled eggs I whisk up the eggs, sea salt, pepper and a big splosh of cream. Once in the pan I add a big knob of butter! Julia Childs would be proud........
