Day 38: A Proper Breakfast

7 Feb

I think Erin read my post about the pathetic lunch I made a couple days ago and she took it upon herself to do some grocery shopping. So when I woke up today, laid out on the kitchen counter were the ingredients for a proper breakfast: pancakes, bacon and eggs. I’m sure this seems like such a normal thing to do for responsible, health-conscious individuals such as yourselves, but in a household where the definition of breakfast is “that meal that one skips everyday,” (we have breakfast cereal but it is either eaten at dinnertime or as a snack while working on the computer) this is quite an unusual event, and could be considered a productive activity.


Step 1: Mix batter in a bowl. We used chopsticks but by all means, use a proper mixing utensil.

Step 2: Heat your pan and add a pat of butter. Exactly how much a "pat" is is entirely up to you.

Step 3: Pour a glob of pancake batter onto the pan. Again, a "glob" is whatever size you want your pancake to be.

Step 4: This is the part where you put in additional ingredients to flavor your pancake. My sister used blueberries because she loves the stuff, but you may use anything in this step. Popular choices are bananas, strawberries, or apples. Unpopular choices are siniguelas, aratilis, or makopa. But nobody's stopping you if that's what you really want.

Or if you're me, add chocolate chips. Because seriously, this isn't even really a choice.

Step 5: Make butter-infused maple syrup by melting several pats (read: copious amounts) of butter in a pan of maple syrup. You should try this at least once in your lives. Not only does it taste awesome, it also eliminates the two-step process of buttering your pancake first and then adding the maple syrup, turning it into a single step of efficiency and deliciousness.

Step 6: Fry bacon. Make sure to lay them on a bed of paper towels afterward to draw out the excess fat. I know this is a last ditch effort to turn this meal into something that's at least a little bit healthy, what with all the sugar and butter in the previous steps but still! Watch your health, people! Hahahahahahahahahahaha.

Step 7: Also known as the "Magpakatotoo Ka" step because it obliterates any previous attempt at making this a healthy breakfast: Fry scrambled eggs in bacon fat!

And there you have it! A proper breakfast! It may not be the healthiest thing in the world but it's awesome and filling and delicious. And if that is not the definition of proper, I don't know what is.

See you tomorrow!

    Looks fantastic– and I don’t even eat bacon but I licked my laptop screen (scrambled eggs, mmm)! Good luck with making the year epic– one meal/step/breath/photo/[insert meaningful word here] at a time!
