Where is a great place to get breakfast?


^_^ Yeah, what can I say? I’m an incredible fan of my mum and even though breakfast generally consists of whatever I can pull out of the cupboard when I’m there, its the company that makes it a great place. Of course if she’s in the mood for it, a cooked breakfast will happen and that is all sorts of great!

I remember Crimbo 2011; waking up and scarfing a cup of tea before heading to church – with far less protest than usual, it must be said. Then we came back, enjoying the fact that there was no snow (unlike the year before; wow!) and I was thrilled to realise that we were having a full cooked breakfast.

Now… for those of you who don’t know, my parents are Jamaican, so even though I say cooked breakfast, I’m not talking about that ‘Full English’ gunk you’ll get in cafés and restaurants. Yeah, yeah, sausages and bacon are nice enough, but who the hell thought black pudding was a good idea?! Yuuuuuuuuuuuk! Anyway… I digress… a cooked breakfast at Mum’s place will often consist of the following nummy treats:

  1. Bacon
  2. Sausage
  3. Hard-dough bread
  4. Bun and/or bullah cake (preferably bullah if I get my way)
  5. Fried plantain
  6. Ackee and saltfish (dependant on mood)
  7. Fried dumplings (and sometimes boiled ones too)
  8. Good, strong tea
  9. Some form of sweet fruit juice thing
  10. As much brown sauce as I can handle!

Yeah… now who wouldn’t want that?!
I wish, oh I WISH I had a picture of this sort of stuff, but I’m not one of those folks who splatters Facebook with pictures of food (what’s all that about by the way?!). So I didn’t take any pictures last Christmas.

Don’t worry though; I guess this Christmas will be a very different one and, if I get my way, I may be able to sweetly ask for at least a couple of those treats if Mum comes to visit. Heh, fingers crossed!

About Ileandra Young

I'm a thirty-*mumbles* year old (purple loving, cheese worshipping) author of fantasy, juggling a pair of beautiful twin boys with my burning desire to make up stories and write them all down. When I get the chance, I play games, listen to music, and in days long past I even ran a radio show. Though I occasionally write non-fiction, my heart lives in fantasy and my debut novel, Silk Over Razor Blades is now available through Amazon along with part two of the trilogy, Walking The Razor's Edge.

    Sounds yummy, even though I have no idea what a few of those things are. Most of it I am familiar with and I hope you get your way!
