Its my breakfast! Don’t touch – don’t comment!

My breakfast habits seem to look strange to some people but even my wife says nowadays “if you need that – eat that!”

Eggs are not bad

I love eggs. Fried , scrambled boiled – I just love them. When I am at home I have a slice of bread with butter, thick salami , three fried eggs and pickled garlic ( the Garlic only if I don’t have to go for business afterwards), Perfect ! Heaven! The number of comments and good advises I received over the years regarding my cholesterol level only decreased after another study came out that two eggs provide vitamins for a whole day. Garlic is health wise anyway excused. Now they start studying the description on the back of the salami.

In Germany – my home country – I need Hackepeter. Its rare grounded pork – totally rare – and spread on a bread bun with butter salt and onions. Delicious! I eat kilos of that once I am in Germany. You can have it together with a boiled egg but these are just additional spices. My Chinese and Russian friends are disgusted. My wife too but she tolerates my habits – lucky me!

In China were I lived more then ten years I love fried rice rice and – as I had it for a year- danshi. Danshi is a piece of toast backed over with something similar to cheese. Don’t ask me what. In China I enjoyed great food but with some items I really didn’t want to know what they are.

Coffee has to be

Coffee got a bad name because it was suppose to dehydrate you. Now that is supposed to be nonsense too and I must say looking at the liquid appearance I never believed it. Yes I drink coffee. Nothing against tea but I like my coffeine dark.

So after all studies proofed that Coffee is okay, eggs have vitamins, beer is full of good things, wine is healthy and people in Armagnac have the best hearts in the world while drinking a lot of their delicious brandy I can live a relaxed life. I just smile at the people who are fishing out their glasses to read the small print on the back of the salami I just bought.
