The most delicious meal of the day.
by Katya Simkhovich
For the love of all things delicious, I would like to take a moment to speak about the most important meal of the day (or so they say). Whatever “they” say, I am a firm believer in a gloriously decadent and delicious breakfast. I believe cereal should be banished to a moldy, dark, dank dungeon as soggy and disgusting as itself. Toast is boring unless supporting a generous layer of good quality salted butter. Pop tarts are for gastronomically uninspired sugar addicts. Frozen waffles are a mournful representation of what a waffle really is. Frozen french toast is a crime against breakfast food. Oatmeal from a packet is mushy, textureless, artificially flavored, shameful shadow of what a bowl of oatmeal can be. And supermarket muffins are an oversized, over sweetened, over artificially flavored excuse for a carb.
Now that I’ve laid all my breakfast food prejudices out on the table, let us move on to what a breakfast should and can be when one isn’t wasting calories and taste buds on bland and boring breakfast items.
There are many a breakfast that would transcend any of the ones aforementioned. However, the one I had just this morning did just fine in terms of transcending pop tarts.
This is the kind of transcendental breakfast I’m talking about. The kind that includes a piece of Niman Ranch canadian bacon, one egg scrambled in the remains of the bacon, and a freshly baked pumpkin muffin (or three).
The kind of breakfast where you transcend social norms and the limits of your stomach by eating three muffins with a nice helping of salted butter on each.
Yeah… that happened.
All I’ve got left to say is:
Respect your breakfast.
