Le Pti Dej

And I will tell you where you are from…

As you may know I’m married with a lovely Paprika from Hungary. One of the first difference I experienced between us, was the breakfast. Different country, different habit.

I tend to like my breakfast sweet, with slices of fresh bread and unsalted butter. Juice in summer and tea, most of the time. Jam, fruits and yogurt bring variety from time to time. For now, it’s rhubarb compote or honey.

I do enjoy to have breakfast outside in the summer, on a shady terrace and fully appreciate it when I can take time.

Her Breakfast

My little Paprika, on the other hand, likes to have a salted breakfast. A freshly cooked omelet or boiled eggs with ham, bacon or even sausage… I have to confess that the smell of cooked eggs in the morning doesn’t give me an appetite.

But we do have something in common: tea !

Last time I asked Paprika what he would fancy to have for breakfast and surprisingly he told me ‘pain au chocolat !’ I know he does miss them… And I also miss any type of viennoiserie.

There was no chocolate at home and just a homemade puff pastry leftover, so I made some kind of mini-croissants. A consolation, far to be as good as real ones. Anyway we gulped them down !

Croissants Compo1

Breakfast is said to be the most important meal of the day. A special meal, full of meaning, related to our childhood, to places where we lived…

And you ? What do you have for breakfast ? What is your favorite place to have it ? And with who do you eat it ?
