boiled egg with soldiers
Boiled Egg with Soldiers
A few days ago, while we were having a Breakie at Le Notre in Lang Saun, I was talking with P'Mim about Breakfast.
A Question was asked "why Breakie has to be greezy?"
Although, Its nice to have a full course Breakfast from time to time. Especially, when you are on holidays... with fried eggs, scrambled eggs with smoked salmon, toasts, bacon & sausages, fried mushroom and tomatoes and everything else.
But personally, with our everyday breakfast, I prefer to have a cup of hot choc (low fat milk) and whole grain toasts with jam or a cup of tea (English Breakfast) and fresh fruits with a cup of yogurt.
At times, I love having boiled egg with little soldiers as it reminds me of my old time. Its a kind of "comfort food" to me.
