The rain was falling outside when I woke up and the misty, grey sky made me want to stay under the covers and order-in food from somewhere that would delivery to my bedroom door. Though I'm sure that kind of service exists somewhere in the world, I do not have the funds that such an extravagant luxury would require. I therefore settled instead on a breakfast that required little prep, zero cooking other than toasting bread, and was hearty enough to keep me going for a while since I had a mountain of homework on my agenda for the day. Here is what I decided on:
(Clockwise from left side of plate) A Figi apple from my bi-weekly Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) delivery; a glass of unsweetened, organic soy milk; buttered "Wolverine" bread from my local bakery Cheeseboard that has dried cherries, golden raisins, dried apricots, and pecans; Jarlsberg Swiss cheese slices from Norway; chunks of a 24-month aged, English white cheddar; and raw almonds. Bon appetite!
