“What do you want for breakfast tomorrow?” I asked.
“Bacons and eggs.”
“I can eat bacons and eggs every day.” I can see the shine in his eyes.
Bacon and egg are L’s no. 1 all time favourite. Due to health concerns, I never make bacon and egg as a frequent breakfast for him. I repeatedly asked the same question, hoping one day I can get a different answer from him. Sigh, his answer has been 100% consistent.
“So other than bacon and egg, what do you want for breakfast tomorrow?”
“Anything. If there is no bacon and egg, I don’t really bother what I’m eating.”
For most of the time I just rolled my eyes and cook whatever I want to for breakfast. As L is not interested in any other breakfast choices, sometimes I feel maybe I shouldn’t put that much of effort on breakfast anyway, especially when I was taking chances to slack like the weekend two weeks ago. I was still in slacking mood after my graduation so I spent the whole Saturday enjoyed doing other stuffs without cooking any meal on that day. L got a little grumpy in the late morning as there was no breakfast. I didn’t take it seriously until he sent me a photo of the brunch menu of a cafe in the neighbourhood when he was out to buy lunch.
Later in the evening, I went out for shopping and bought some herb plants from Jason. As I was paying the goods at the counter, I realised L put a bag of premium bacon in the basket without my knowledge. I realised L was disappointed without the usual weekend breakfast today even though he never seem to care much. That cute act of L really hit that soft spot of me at that moment. I decided to make him a nice breakfast the next day without spending much time. So I grabbed some ready-made bagels and nice avocados for add ons. Sometimes we just need to spend a little bit more to save some time to prepare a cafe-style breakfast.
I made him the bacon and egg bagel the next day and his eyes were shining again as looking at the creamy scrambled egg. I got the method from a cooking show of Gordon Ramsey and L really like it. This method is good in preventing the egg from overcooking, giving a lumpy instead of chunky texture.
We are celebrating our 6th wedding anniversary this March and this year is our 10th year as a couple. I truly grateful for L as a supportive and loving partner. He remains the biggest part of my home cooking and this blog for sure. He used to sit on the couch and watch cooking show with me, drive me around to check out new market and eat everything I cook, seriously everything.
With bacon and egg, here I specially dedicated this post to L in this special occasion. I am looking forward to the next 10th year of and I guess L is more looking forward to the next bacon meal in the coming week :p
