Not your typical breakfast

I must have woken some neighbours up this morning with the aroma of pasta wafting out of my kitchen window. See, I was cooking pasta at 6am for the kids. It's no trouble at all especially when I had already prepared most of the ingredients the night before. The kids love pasta and wish I could make this everyday.

SK ate his portion at 6.30am while the rest was placed in a warmer so YK could eat later as he has no school today.

As for me, I had boiled chickpeas for brekkie. The kids often question my love for 'peasant' food.

What can I say? I just love the texture and flavour of simple food like pumpkin, sweet potato, yam and chickpeas. They should be happy when it's their turn to take care of me in my old age.

Hey, Blur, it's good to see you also taking the unconventional route to breakfast food. And it may not be that unconventional, when I think of the breakfast buffets served in restaurants. The food choices available cld be for any meal of the day!

So who says breakfast must just be bread, jam n milk/coffee/tea, hehe!

Auntie Lucia - You're right. Don't know why people must eat bread and fried bee hoon for breakfast!

Blur Ting said...

Fry - Yup. Even when my kids were small, I never fret about what they eat as long as it's not bad for their health.

OKC - I hear ya! I'll make some for you when you come :-)

Malar - I must say pasta is more tasty... but I'll still pick chickpeas.
