What a breakfast

This morning my two free-range eggs nestled lovingly on all-butter muffins which had been lightly toasted and spread with fresh Normandy butter. The rindless back bacon with its distinct maple cure had to be one of the best rashers I've ever tasted. And as for the sausage... a perfect melange of spices and pork with a little wild boar to provide a subtle gamey undertone was just sublime. Finally, sun-ripened Pomodoro tomatoes and sweet button mushrooms, lightly sauteed  in extra virgin olive oil finished off what has to be one of the best breakfasts I've ever tasted. I rounded the meal off with a slice of freshly toasted bread and Frank Cooper's Oxford marmalade, washed down with a cup or two of a most excellent Kenyan Peaberry coffee.

Then I woke up!

  1. Does it have to finish mutating before you can eat it?

  2. Not long after I posted this, a group of men in biohazard suits came into my room and removed my breakfast. There were black helicopters circling over the hospital and menacing men in black suits and sunglasses, sporting suspicious bulges in their left armpits, were stood outside my room.

    Morning ETM - seems that the drugs are working nicely this morning! Hope all is progressing well with the leg!

    Jenny:
    Not sure if I agree with you - looks like something akin to that removed from the cats' litter tray this morning, I fear. Good job that the menacing men are around to deal with it!

    Happy Tuesday.

  5. Just what is that which sit's in the bowl?? It looks like some batter to make vegeatrian burgers from.
    May your dreams come true then (if not in hospital, then at home)!

  7. Please put us out of our miserery. What was it supposed to be?

    BTW, your dream description was superb. Thank you for making me feel hungry.

  8. Was that before or after you'd eaten it? It does look repellent.

    I'm delighted to hear you're ok and I'm particularly glad that the hospital is keeping up its usual standards.

    Good luck.

  9. That was a 'before' photo. In the interests of good taste an 'after' version wasn't possible.

  10. How could "after" be any worse than "before"?

  11. It looks like ear wax. Has the ENT man been doing his early morning rounds?

  12. Please enlighten me further: what is "weetabix"??
    (And what's it supposed to be?)
