No matter how busy I get, I always try to make it a priority to see my mom once a week. She lives about an hour away, which isn’t too bad, so usually I’m able to make it happen. The older I get, the more important it is to me (I also stop by and visit my grandmother on the way home, as she lives pretty close as well). Both of us are busy though, so we can’t always hang out for as long as we’d like, but we make the best of it. It’s definitely one of the high points of my week, no question about it.
Lately we’ve been making a little Sunday morning ritual of getting breakfast. The place we go to is freakin awesome (The Golden Egg in Portsmouth, New Hampshire if you’re interested and from the Northeast), and I’m convinced I’ve found the best breakfast ever. That is subject to change, of course, but for now, that’s my story and I’m sticking to it.
So what is it?
A big ole’ omelette with shrimp, avocado, mushrooms, spinach, and feta cheese. It comes with a side of grilled tomato slices (also to die for) and I get a gluten-free blueberry muffin to go with it. It’s basically heaven on a plate. Plates, actually.
If you are a foodie, definitely give this one a shot. If you don’t feel like making the trek to New Hampshire, which I can understand, you could try making it yourself. I wouldn’t dream of doing that because it violates all three of my cooking man-rules:
1. Can’t take more than 15 minutes to make from start to finish.
2. Little to no prep time involved.
3. Little to no cleanup involved.
If you’re like me and hate cooking, find somewhere you can get a “make-your-own” omelette and give this one a try. You won’t regret it.
Oh yea, and visit you mom, or at least give her a call.
Hope you’re getting your week started off right, and be sure to check out yesterday’s Good Reads if you haven’t already. Also, let me know what your favorite breakfast is in the comments below. I could always use some good ideas.
