What are you doing this weekend? Well, I happened to go out for an impromptu lunch with two good friends of mine. We did not have any proper plans. Actually, wait. We did. We wanted to go and buy plant saplings for another friend of ours. But before we did that we went to a cafe 11th Avenue Cafe Bistro, which is located in the heart of the city. We ordered the much heard of English Breakfast for ourselves and just dived in!
The day was a pretty warm one. So my friends ordered cool drinks to have with their “breakfasts”. I had to settle for a cup of Americano for I had a sore throat. (But who do I blame? Black coffee, always!) I have cut down on my caffeine intake, let me remind you. This one was my happy moment and we should all have happy moments, shouldn’t we? The key is to keep a balance.
By the way, an English breakfast is usually a breakfast meal which includes sausages, eggs and bacon, and is accompanied by coffee or tea.
In our version of the English Breakfast, we had toasted breads, eggs with their sunny sides up, baked beans, chicken sausages and baked chicken, wedges of boiled potato, boiled mushrooms and a piece of roasted tomato. By the end of our meal, we were so contented that we not only returned with a few saplings of Verbena but also planted them in tubs, put soil and fertilizers in them and hung them on our friend’s balcony. They are watered and look quite pretty now!
