Start here…

I saw the photos of the Big Breakfast that my blogger-friend had for lunch and dinner sometime ago (she was MIA for a long while – thank goodness, she’s back) and all this time, I had been contemplating on cooking something like that for myself first thing in the morning. Well, as they say, “the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak” and I never got round to doing that.

Finally, the other morning, at long last, I managed to come out with this…

I guess that looked pretty decent, don’t you think so?

I started by toasting two slices of bread in a non-stick pan and buttered them generously before I put a slice of Cheddar cheese…

…on one slice after which I covered it with the other slice.

Next, I fried an egg and that went on top of the toast…

After that, still using the non-stick pan, I went on to grill the tomato that I had cut into halves…

Oopsss!!! I burnt one of the halves a bit but it did not matter. While I was eating, I just scraped off the black bits with my knife and they all came off very easily. Of course, as a result of that little mishap, I had to wash the pan first or else everything else that I grilled in the pan after that would be “dirty” and unsightly.

The next thing that went in was the sausage…

…followed by the slices of bacon…

…and lastly, I heated up a bit of baked beans and served it by the side…

…before sitting down to enjoy the fruits of my labour.

Now, “where do I begin?” What do you think? Did I start off with the bacon…

…first before going on to something else? Come, make a guess!

Yes, I did enjoy the breakfast but somehow or other, I did not think that I enjoyed it as much as when I had something similar in countries overseas. Was it because of their milder, colder climate…or was it because those same ingredients abroad were nicer…or was it how they prepared theirs? Personally, I think I would prefer something local, something simpler perhaps and go for this once in a (long) while sometimes for a change.
