Breakfast

Picture this – You wake up in the morning and some amazing smell hits your nostrils, breakfast. It is the smell of bacon and then you hear it, that sweet sizzling sound. After brushing the sleep from your eyes you get dressed and walk into the kitchen. There before you is a plate of bacon, eggs and hash browns. This became a regular occurrence at my home growing up and then as I got older instead of my mother doing the cooking, I had the pleasure to make it. Sometimes it would be waffles, other times it would be pancakes.

We didn’t buy donuts much, but they were always a treat when we did. I even enjoyed cold cereal in the mornings, which on school days was the norm. Now I have changed my breakfast eating ways. I do still indulge and fix myself a plate of bacon, eggs and hash browns now and then. Mostly I stick to smoothies so I can leave room for other treats throughout the day. Whatever the breakfast may be I still look forward to it every morning.
