What’s for brekkie?

14 Sep

Brekkie* or breakfast is an important meal here in South Africa. South Africans lay quite a spread.  It’s Dana and my favorite meal of the day. See if you can guess which breakfasts are mine and which are Dana’s?  I gave one to you…my favorite.

OJ,muesli, muffin, fruit, yogurt & cheese

We also take a coffee break at 10:00 on the mornings we are out. We love lattes.

Two cafe lattes

Poached eggs in Cape Malay sauce

Eggs with tuna and cheese

Ham & cheese croissant with salad

Yogurt, muesli, fruit and honey

Minced savory with eggs and chips

High Tea

My favorite-Choccocino with a chocolate bar and a bran muffin.

Eggs with fish and chips

Yogurt with berries

Eggs Benedict

Cafe lattes with chocolate sticks & whipped cream for two

*Brekkie is an Australian term.

    IF memory serves, they say “brekkie in New Zeeland too”. This post made me hungry!

      Hi Emily, We are going to Australia next then we are spending 8 days taking trains up the South then North Islands of New Zealand. I will see if brekkie is more widely used there. We are also spending a night and day in Tahiti but who needs breakfast there… J

      You could probably tell from the photos that many of these meals were eaten out of doors, a particularly nice way to have breakfast. J

      That weight thing is a constant concern. But that didn’t stop us from eating a lot of pizza in Sicily and Choccocinos here. I am committed to join the gym when I return. Maybe I will see you and Obie in the mornings. J
