Mark and I had guests this weekend and like a good hostess I made breakfast this morning in the form of monkey bread and coffee.
Monkey bread is a childhood favorite of mine, we didn’t have it very often, mostly special occasions or Christmas breakfast. Always sooooo good, so gooey, so buttery.
I wanted to make scrambled eggs and bacon to accompany it but Mark warned me that not everyone reveres Sunday morning breakfast like I do. I think he made the right call.
Monkey bread and Dunkin’ Donuts coffee. Oh God, I can’t, just so…(pleasure groan).
I love having guests.
Recently I have learned to poach an egg, it’s an amazing skill and one I never acquired as a child because my parents had a nifty little egg poacher doo-hinky that required nothing but an egg.
The mistake I was making in the past was having the water at a boil but the trick is to keep it just under a boil. Also, adding a dash of vinegar.
Now I have the skill and time to make myself yummy breakfasts like the one I had here. I poached an egg, made some toast, and I threw some cherry tomatoes in olive oil and salt and gave them about 10 minutes in the toaster oven on bake. Then I grabbed my usual morning green tea and patted myself on the back for eating such a colorful and healthy breakfast.
