Yesterday, Nicholas was invited to a breakfast play date at a friend’s house. He’s got quite the social life … I don’t think I’ve ever had a breakfast date! The family is from Argentina, and as she laid out the breakfast offerings, she said that a traditional breakfast in Argentina is very simple, usually just toast and other breads. Remembering breakfasts at our cousins house in France, it’s much of the same thing … croissants, butter and assorted jams and jellies. It’s really Americans that do the whole eggs, bacon and sausage thing.
Along with the toast, she had a bowl of assorted nuts, fresh strawberries, a basket of crackers and pancakes for the kids, a recipe that she’s only made a few times. Fresh plum jam was an added treat, with plums fresh from her sister’s farm in Spain. Doesn’t get much better than that.
So, confess. What are YOUR breakfast traditions?
A year ago today… Bachelor Bob and other shenanigans.
P.S. Yes, there will be an ARF/5-A-Day roundup tomorrow.
