Bushboy’s cafe at home

I don’t generally respond to daily prompts or challenges but this one grabbed my attention. It’s true.  None of us can go out for breakfast, so what are we eating at home?

I thought Bushboy  would approve of my Aussie staple: spicy avo on toast (home made spelt bread) and black coffee. This is what I eat most days. Occasionally, I’ll have porridge or my home-made almond and cashew butter on spelt toast.

The mug was a present from my kid sister and says: « As I suspected I was right about everything. » My sisters have bought me a number of similarly themed mugs over the years. And they’re not wrong.

My beloved’s mug says: « Trophy Husband. » He absolutely loves it! He had yoghurt followed by home-made marmalade on spelt toast. Usually it’s my home-made marmalade which I’m forbidden to share with anyone else but this was made by some French friends. It’s more of a compote than a jam and they’ve left the pips in it. However, he says it has a nice bitter taste.

  1. For me it’s a cup of camomile tea and a bowl of gluten free muesli with three prunes added. Other days it’s gluten free porridge, plus the prunes. A bit limited on cereals as a coeliac but it gets more adventurous in summer when I eat lots of fresh fruit. Occasionally a bacon buttie on horrible gluten free bread!

    • One of my girlfriends cannot eat gluten or meat. She usually has a poached egg in half an avocado. I make a seeded gluten free loaf which she loves.

      • We made bread for years in our brilliant Phillips Breadmaker, then when I was diagnosed as a coeliac last year we tried to make bread with gluten free flour. After making enough bricks to pave the drive, we gave up!

  2. I gave Pam 30 gourmet dinners. This week it was Sicilian meatballs in sauce, homemade french bread, and a salad (romaine, sweet pepper, red onion, pitted olive, cherry tomatoes with fresh squeezed lemon juice.

    • I have more cookery books than the average bookshop plus, of course, there are tons of recipes on line. Sounds as if you’ve been very fortunate.

  3. We don’t have breakfast – just coffee then a brunch at midday – usually a sandwich and salad. We are running out of salad ingredients. I love the “Trophy Husband” mug.

  4. When I retired, my coworkers gave me a mug they knew I would need to keep on the table so my husband can read it: “A fun thing to do in the morning is NOT talk to me.”

  5. Sounds wonderful… my trophy husband loves marmalade (I’m not a fan) but we don’t get bitter oranges here. I wonder if grapefruit would work? Will have to give it a try.

  6. That is one fine looking avocado toast! I haven’t been able to get avocados in weeks thanks to the insane shortages here, so I would do terrible things to pull up a chair and enjoy this breakfast with you. Glad I could at least partake vicariously; thanks for sharing!
