Partly Put Together

Breakfast Around the World is a new family tradition

Tags:      

Lately, I’ve been focused on trying to establish some fun family traditions for our household !!!  I’m trying to figure out some fun stuff like…..

‘Movie Night’

‘Taco Tuesday’

‘Game Night’

On and on it goes….

A few years back, my family became obsessed with the wonderful show,  ” Doctor Who”  It’s a British show and you can usually find re-runs on BBC, Netflix or purchase the series on Amazon.  I highly recommend this show for those of you who are adventurous and  young at heart.

It’s about a time lord who journeys through space and time to make the universe right when it has gone incredibly wrong.  Doctor Who is extremely intelligent and super quirky.  the show has a great story line that’s been going on for about 30 + years now and safe for the little ones to watch.  (Every now and then there is a scary monster)

I love Doctor Who because watching it with my family was one of the first activities I could actually enjoy after my Father died. . It made me laugh and cry. It was something I could genuinely be happy about after feeling so crummy for so long.

Not too long ago, I even got to meet one of my favorite characters …….

Then on my last trip to Hopewell, I was in deep prayer with the Lord regarding some struggles I was facing. I told Him it was a silly request but could he please just show me a sign that I was headed down the right path in life.  When I turned the corner, I found the Tardis on a back road in Tennessee…….  interesting .

I love it the Fact that my Heavenly Father has a sense of humor.

Anyway, back to new traditions.  I was talking to my husband about ‘Movie Night’ and ‘Taco Tuesday’. It was one of those conversations where he was listening………

but not really listening……

He said,  ‘Yeah……We should try this one morning for breakfast’  and he showed me a picture perfect traditional English breakfast.  I’m not sure which site he found it on or I would post it to give them credit but their list of ingredients consisted of bacon, fried eggs, beans, hash browns, ‘blood sausage’, sauteed tomatoes and mushrooms.  And of course, English muffins.

Although his comment was a bit off topic, it was exactly what I was looking for.

Breakfast from around the world !!!

We always have some sort of big breakfast on the weekend and I love to cook so why don’t we try out some new foods from around the world.

Our version of the traditional English breakfast is as follows:

  • Fried Eggs
  • Hash browns
  • Baked Beans
  • Sauteed Tomatoes
  • Sauteed Mushrooms
  • Bacon
  • Maple Sausage Links (substitute for blood sausage- not sure where to get it)

What a Layout !!

There are 52 weekends in the year and I’d like to attempt a new family tradition of pigging out on a breakfast from around the world each weekend.

We will see how it goes.
