Now, let's get back to me. I mean, come on, this piece should be all about me. Right?
Personally, breakfast is not my most favorite meal, especially the stuff we typically eat in this country. I am reminded of that Jimmy Dean commercial with the sun and the guy with a big box of cereal. The sun asks, "Where's the eggs, where's the sausage, where's the potatoes...where's the cholesterol?" Truthfully, I added that cholesterol part, but it should have been part of that dialog. That's my thought anyway. They should work on their grammar, too.
Up until yesterday, the best breakfast I can ever remember having was in Singapore a number of years ago. That breakfast consisted of a little meat, lots of veggies, and a savory broth with noodles. It was similar to a pho, but a little lighter. That was then, and this is now. I found my new favorite breakfast (sorry Rebekah) while watching a Cooking Channel program, David Rocco's Amalfi Getaway.
I tried this absolutely fabulous Italian breakfast just this morning, and I have to tell you that those Italians know how to eat. Here is David's recipe for:
Pane Zucchero Vino
(for six servings)
6 thick slices of bread
1 cup of a really good Italian red wine
1/4 cup of sugar
Drizzle your bread with the wine, and then sprinkle evenly with the sugar.
Now, that is the breakfast of champions!
