breakfast. a lot of people i know can’t stomach sweet food for breakfast. or dinner food for breakfast. or just any food for breakfast. my dad for example: peshwari nann?? (upon entering the living room on a young me heating it in the microwave) FOR BREAKFAST?!
here’s what i don’t get though, most of the time when you are hungry you are like: chinese takeaway MMMMM or old vegetable lasagne lacking in white sauce BLEGHHH. you like some food and are emphatic about others. then all of a sudden you are like chinese takeaway, EWWWWW and all that has changed is you’ve been chillaxing for 8 hours.
i guess some people just like breakfast food. i like breakfast food too but not for any reason other than i have this romantic idea of sitting at a big table in a kitchen of pale wood and white tiles with one of those old-e sink-es, eating typical breakfast food. you know, fruit and cereal, toast and jam, croissants and maybe waffles. pots of tea, coffee machine going, big glasses of fresh orange juice even though i really don’t like fresh orange juice. thing is though, how far is fruit and cereal, or waffles, from what i have just pictured?
here is a recipe i just made for pesto because while i really, really like pesto, my dear old husband is allergic to nuts. i’ve only ever found one pesto in shops which doesn’t has nuts in it, which is found in aldi, however it is more of a sunblush tomato based one. don’t get me wrong it’s really good however, it’s not basil pesto. so i decided to make some sensible replacements for this alternative and importantly nut free pesto. feta cheese replaces parmesan and roasted soya beans replace the nuts!
