I don’t eat breakfast. It’s not the choice of breakfast options that puts me off. I like cereal and I like toast and I like most breakfast choices (though I did once turn my nose up at tuna salad in Kyoto- that’s not breakfast food!) When I wake up, I just don’t feel like eating. An hour is about the length of time needed for my body to realise that I’m no longer sleeping. If I wake up close to lunch time, however, then you can pretty much forget everything I just said. If lunch were a place, it would be my permanent residence.
Which brings us to brunch. Brunch means different things to different people. To me? It’s an excuse to have lunch early (and if I’m clever, I get to have lunch too!) Having made a stack of pulled pork, I chose to start the day off well by making full use of it in all its tasty glory.
I’ll just have to accept that what I made is not going to be everyone’s idea of tasty, but believe me, I enjoyed it a lot. I toasted some wholemeal bread, slapped mayo on the bottom slice, piled up lambs lettuce, went crazy with the amount of pulled pork on top of that and finished it all off with a fried egg and a squirt of barbecue sauce. Now tell me if that ain’t a way to get the day going!
Like I said, I don’t eat breakfast; but if the pulled pork lasts, you may see me at the breakfast table every darn morning!
