An English Brunch to Dream About

I’m almost swooning just thinking about this!

It all started as I sat at my trusty computer and smelt bacon cooking as it wafted into my room from the kitchen. Full of hope and greed, I wandered through to the kitchen, only to find that my partner had cooked himself breakfast and eaten all the bacon without offering me any.

 That bacon smell is so pungent and so good that, some years ago, it actually caused my daughter to come off her year-long stint of being a vegetarian, but that’s a different story.

Anyway, much saddened and disappointed, I looked around to see what was in the fridge, to give myself a mid-day treat. And this is what I found:

  • A small piece of supermarket flatbread with goats milk and caramellised onions
  • 2 Slices of bacon
  • Tomatoes
  • Mushrooms

I put the flatbread in the oven for 10 minutes, and cooked the bacon, tomatoes and mushrooms to perfection on my grill pan. I knew this was going to be good – the aroma had all my senses going before I even sat down to eat it.

When I served it onto my plate, lovingly and artistically, I knew this was going to be one of the best brunches I could ever have, so I photographed it to share with you all. Sorry you can’t smell or taste it – Me, I was left almost swooning with delight and anticipation.

 After the photography session I sat down and consumed it happily, safe in the knowledge that it was a hundred times better than the meal my partner didn’t cook for me.

Here’s a Shopping Tote I designed on Zazzle:
