I just had to share my delicious breakfast with you. I am still thinking about how good it was, and I ate it hours ago. I might have to make it for lunch too.

Since I’m so obsessed with mushrooms now, I sauteed a handful of mushrooms, then mixed in four egg whites and a ton of fresh basil. On the side, I had a leftover piece of grilled herb bread from our dinner party last night.


And… I had to eat it with this giant three-prong serving fork. It’s literally bigger than my forearm.

We are completely out of utensils! No forks, spoons, knives – and we have tons of them. The majority are in the dishwasher and the others are dirty in the sink. And I was too lazy to wash one of those. At least I wasn’t too lazy to make breakfast.


What did you have for breakfast today?

    Buttered toast… simple but I love it. All week I’ve had a peanut butter sandwich, Greek yogurt, and 2 pieces of fruit. Tell you what, I didn’t even THINK about lunch for hours and hours!

    That looks delish – might be the secret to getting me to like mushrooms. I’m visiting my parents so I had oatmeal with walnuts and cranberries, which is a treat since I’m too cheap to buy walnuts OR cranberries (at the same time at least) when fending for myself. Plus, humdrum food tastes better at home.

    Yum! That looks great. I’ve been craving mushrooms lately :) I hate running out of cutlery too! We specifically went to the second hand store to get spares just in case. They’re aren’t pretty but better than having to wash a spoon or fork when your food is already made! Oh, and I had a green smoothie. They usually don’t fill me up till lunch but I’m sick today :(

    If I liked mushrooms, that might look good. Put in peppers and onions and I’m there!

    I had a bowl of oatmeal with strawberries, granola, coconut and chocolate chips. Then my roommate offered some scrambled eggs mixed with whipped cream cheese; I had a bit of that too. ;-)

    I’m in the Eatin’ Breakfast With a Serving Utensil Club too. I’m also in the Eatin’ Breakfast With a Toddler Spoon Club. Not today, though. It tends to happen after I’ve been decorating a cake and I used every spoon to mix various colors of frosting.

    Today’s breakfast was Kashi Honey Sunshine cereal. And then I went out and stood in the rain waiting to get into a mom-to-mom sale. Honey sunshine, my ass.

    I invite you try my favorite Spanish breakfast! (which I had yesterday, today and tomorrow):
    Grate a tomato (no skin) in a small bowl, add a spurt of good Spanish olive oil (HAS to be Spanish), add some oregano and salt.
    Then, toast a couple of slices of bread and scratch a clove of garlic on them. With a spoon spread the tomato mix on top… mmmmmmm
    So easy and so tasty.
    You will thank me for that.
    I’m personally obsesed with garlic so I actually grate half a clove (or more…) and add it to the mix… That’s up to you :)
    ¡Que aproveche! ^_^ and wish you a beautiful day!

    the egg whites and mushrooms is more like dinner for me, especially with the garlic bread. p.s. isn’t breakfast for dinner the best?
