My Favorite Breakkie
Today’s Photohunt Theme is “Breakfast”
In this photo, taken last year on Christmas morning, Braden is enjoying his first of many special Christmas breakfasts.
Christmas Breakfast has always been a big deal to me. My family didn’t splurge or indulge in really special foods regularly, but only on special occasions like holidays and birthdays. Part of what I looked forward to on Christmas morning was the food – I literally got almost as excited about that upon waking as I did about the gifts.
We’d have a spread of amazing cheeses, usually including things like Brie, Havarti (my fav evah) and Gruyere. Alongside the cheeses would be salamis and summer sausages – Mmmmmm: MEAT. Rounding out my favorite breakkie would be the truly amazing bread that my mother makes only twice a year – it’s called Zopf and it is a melt in your mouth bread that will change your life.
Do not scoff at me. You have NO idea.
I wanted to maintain this holiday tradition within our own family, and last year was my first attempt. I was so proud of my bread!
And eating that meal made me feel like I was with my parents and siblings, even though they were all far away.
What’s your favorite breakkie?
