sunday breakfast

Okay, so there’s good new and bad news.

Let’s start with the bad. Sorry. Not really.

I wish there was a delicate, socially acceptable or at least somewhat witty way of putting this, but as my attempts to channel some balance of Anthony Bourdain and Mama Oprah are failing me, I will have to settle for this – I have tonsillitis. I get it, and apparently often. Oh, and apparently at the most inconvenient times. Like 3 weeks ago, pre-trip to San Diego. Or how about a few years back, pre-trip to Ireland for a wedding.

Tonsillectomy is the word du jour – du weekend, really.

Oftentimes, I catch the sneaky bugger and after a day of rest and FDA unapproved meds (Mom’s chicken soup 4eva), I’m back on my feet. On the rare occasion where I don’t have the luxury of time off, or I’m just not watching my back (as was the case this time), I get treated to America’s favorite generic antibiotic. The thing is, I know and you know it’s not good to be consistently bombarding your body with antibiotics. Trust me, I’m a pharmacist.

No I’m not.

Okay, back to Sunday breakfast.

In the course of self-medication and heavy doses of TLC (the family kind, not the one that thinks showing Honey Boo Boo to the world is appropriate), I knew I’d have to endure one of the worst home treatments known to childlike-adults worldwide.

The saltwater gargle. If you think the Hello Kitty spoon or cute little girl in a yellow raincoat helped any, you’re mistaken. I don’t even know if there was any direct health effect, but I suppose it had to be done.

And then I treated myself to a little piece of toast with avocado, its desolate final moments memorialized here.

The good news, however, is that I couldn’t bear to leave you with such a sad, pathetic Sunday breakfast – so I’m bringing you last Sunday’s breakfast.

Now this was a real treat – something a person with well-behaved tonsils could happily stomach. Here we have toast, melted Havarti, a roast tomato and, of course, a fried egg. Want to make those roast tomatoes? I got your recipe right here.

I hope you all enjoyed your weekends, whether it was in the great outdoors, roaming the streets of your favorite city, or attached to the couch.
