Saturday is our "big breakfast" day
For on Sunday our church starts too early to enjoy a leisurely Sunday breakfast
Sometimes, it's just bacon and eggs and potatoes,
othertimes it's an omelet
Occasionally, it will be biscuits and gravy
or pancakes or a waffle
And sometimes I like to do "themed" breakfasts
Breakfasts we've enjoyed on our travels.
And my favorite "travel" "themed" breakfast is
A Full English!
We always breakfast in the breakfast room
And we always set the table nicely
Mother taught me that!
Alas, no flowers on the table for we're between bouquets
but my myrtle topiary fills in nice for cut blossoms.
A Full English . . .
Real European sausages, English beans (Heinz in the blue can), a fried egg on a piece of fried bread
(sometimes there's tomatoes or mushrooms and British bacon as well)
And it wouldn't be an "English" breakfast without
In our English marmalade jar
(and you can tell it is a marmalade jar because it says it is!!!)
And to go with the marmalade . . .
A toast "cooler" full of toast.
It's husband Jim's name for the silver slotted toast holder.
For he says that you take nice warm toast, put it in the holder
and presto . . . it's cold!
Once said, that's become our name for it!
Husband Jim likes coffee and I have tea.
It is so reminiscence of the breakfast that we so enjoyed
at bed and breakfasts in England.
As faithful as I can be here, in my little town on the prairie.
Right down to the mats under the plates that were always on the table when we sat down to breakfast.
Not brought home from England
but bought here for others brought them home and you can find them for a mere pittance
of what they cost over there!
