Breakfast around the Mediterranean

100_0971I wish! Sadly, this rare and unusual Sunday morning treat is as close as I can get at the moment and consists of Spanish Serrano ham (from the Co-Op and disappointingly short on flavour), Greek feta cheese (Athos brand, which is the cheapest, yet the best of those found in average supermarkets).

And, finally, Italian-style Parmesan & Sun Dried Tomato Bread, which I baked – and look, it even rose! OK, so it comes from a packet and the bread machine did all the rest, but it was all warm and home-made smelling and still an achievement.

And still 1,000,000 times better than any processed, chemical, sliced crap.

Unfortunately, despite loving them, all three of these are on my “forbidden list” of foods to which I have some degree of intolerance (the cheese least so) and I will “pay” later, but I cannot live without the occasional pleasure.

Do you think you could live without any pleasures in life?

Absolutely not. Come what may, I go to the pub once a week, even though alcohol disagrees with me - makes me fall over!

Seriously, it does make me feel amazingly ill, even just one pint, which might go some way to explaining why I tend to overdo it - if I'm going to feel dreadful anyway, might as well have some fun first.
