This post started out about Diet Coke/Coca-Cola. I'll save that for next week, since ybunny
walked in right as I started it. I hope you can forgive the incredible lateness of FF...I couldn't possibly finish when he's just come back from the rig.
I'm being treated to breakfast in bed this morning. To me, breakfast in bed is the ultimate luxury in terms of food because it combines my two favorite things. Breakfast food and my lovely bed.
If you brought me anything other than breakfast food, it would seem too much like being sick.
There are instructions for breakfast in bed
, but I'll be honest, they're flawed. If you're having to get up and make it yourself, it's not breakfast in bed...it's just getting back into bed with your breakfast.
A fine line between the two, but I'm sure you see it. :)
Almost every Mother's day, by sister and I would try to get up and make drjoan
breakfast in bed. Two problems: 1) Two under 14s making breakfast makes a lot of noise, and 2) You've got to get up pretty early to catch drjoan
sleeping. (It's easier just to stay up all night.)
What am I having in bed this morning? Well, ybunny
is making me scrambled eggs on toast. I do love eggs.
But, if you're looking to make that ultimate breakfast in bed experience, make crepes.Breakfast in Bed Crepes1 cup flour, sub with rice flour, or a crepe mix to make Gluten Free crepes
1/3 cup water, more or less
1 and a half tablespoons of oil
Mix all together and then let rest while you bring a skillet up to temperature. Medium heat is best, but you will undoubtedly ruin the first one. (In looks at least, still yummy.)
I don't need to tell you how to make pancakes and unless you're using a professional crepe skillet, it's the same as pancakes. Just don't try to make them thick...enough said.
I like my crepes with Nutella, but drjoan
and my gram, gramj
like blintzes better.
For blintzes, wrap the crepe around some ricotta and some jam. Voila.
And now, I'm going to eat my eggs.Do you eat breakfast in bed? What do you have?
