The daily post for Friday is: what does your morning look like? I’ve had mornings where I’ve greeted the sun, most memorably after a nighttime hike up Mount Sinai, Egypt, and also after a night spent sleeping in the desert on an overnight camel trek, where the sunrise was spectacular but the flat bread our guide made us on site for breakfast had maggots in it (from the flour), I ate it anyway (may have picked out the maggot bits) seemed very first world not to, but it wasn’t my favourite breakfast. Now admittedly, a beautiful sun-rise is a good thing. However, my ideal morning, doesn’t necessarily feature the sun. What it does feature is a good breakfast. Prepared and served by somebody else. This bit is very important. Ideally I am sharing my breakfast and my morning with a loved one. Furthermore, my perfect morning contains the following elements: starched linens. Tropical fruit ripened just around the corner. Velvety avocados. Cheddar. A perfectly brewed pot of tea. A view of tropical foliage. Some crispy bacon. Crepes and lime. And the sound of waves breaking in the distance, overlaid with the drumming of tropical rain on the roof…A sunrise is fine, fully agreed, but what would a morning be without breakfast?
Good pancakes are not bad either, especially when prepared with a big smile by Joseph..See Chef Josephs pancakes here
