There are breakfasts, and then there are breakfasts. This is what I had today. Hot buttered toast with sugar on it, chased with a steaming cup of tea.

Caffeine? Check.
Sugar? Check.
Carbs? Check.

Proteins will have to wait till lunch.

Humble? Sure. Modest? Certainly. Welcome burst of buttery warmth within your sleepy soul? Hell yes! Plus, easy on the purse and body.

You couldn't do better in five minutes, people. The eating takes longer than the prep. So the next time you're rushing out sans brekkers because oh, you're SO late and the doughnut shop is right next to bus stop -- stop! Home-made toast and tea, folks, that's the ticket.

I keep a jar of cinnamon sugar handy, and for a while kept chai toast spread (remember that? It was butter mixed with cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, vanilla and sugar) to make easy caloric meals. Just yesterday mister and i were discussing juice, and he was shocked that i usually drink juice because its liquid with calories, not merely that its tasty.

Buttered toast with pepper on top, for the days I feel too sugared for comfort...
