A Life Half Lived - Breakfast Discoveries

Thursday, May 26, 2011

Ok, it might be a little far fetched to suggest that life is only half-lived* before discovering a particular food. But it's cheese**. And it tastes indulgent and satisfying, but is actually good for you. How did I survive *coughspluttercough* years without discovering the deliciousness of ricotta on toast.
It's slightly less healthy, I suspect, when served on toasted slices of golden brioche from Bourke Street Bakery for a weekend lunch. But it looks so much more appetising than the eaten-at-the-desk version that make a regular appearance on weekdays, sprinkled with cinnamon...

Sitting beside the Other Penguin, who's eating a sausage roll, also makes your own lunch feel more nutritious...

He has a better iPhone, too. Although photos are always a little dodgy when they're standing between a penguin and her lunch!

* Well, a type of cheese. Going this long without any cheese whatsoever is a terrifying thought...
** Maybe 10% less lived would be more accurate? Thinking about numbers definitely needs a good breakfast. And not thinking about numbers is greatly improved by one, too!

I still havn't been to BSB yet, & I don't live to far from one of their branches. Ricotta spread on toast (raisen toast is even better), topped with fruit & drizzled with honey - now you've got to try that!
P.S Nice meeting you last weekend =)

Ohhh yes, I love ricotta on toast, especially when the toast is piping hot - YUM!
