You are probably wondering how I made a “Masterchef Quality” Breakfast for my father this morning, ei? That’s easy! I mean kids do it all the time when I watch reruns of the show and amazingly at that age they really know how to use knives and the art of garnishing. If they can do it, so can I – that’s what really started my morning (a dream about a cooking show). Haha!
Normally, I have crackers and good smelling coffee for breakfast. But today – everything changed because I was super inspired! Around 6am, I was cranking up the kitchen for a big surprise. I was probably suffering from delusional grandiosity at that point – who cares? I will cook the best breakfast ever!!! (emphasis on the “ever” to be pronounced as “evaaaaaaaaaaaaah”) Who else would want to be the judge? Definitely my father!
I prepared myself for the early morning challenge: meditation, ingredients, utensils, power apron, mood music, and some amazing seasoning! I was ready to start my day with a bang! Walking around to and fro like Rachel Ray, pretending to be Martha Stewart, and maybe some added cooking skills from Mario Batali – I was like the newest Food Network Celebrity Host (Oh Yeah!) Well, we just have to eliminate the audience, the stage lights, and the stylish wardrobe since I was in my “just-got-up-look.” 😉
That would have been amazing! The only problem is… I don’t have that much talent. A sunny side up egg is a simple dish with two things to remember: 1) Crack the egg and 2) Cook it – That being said, instead of the beautifully garnished reference photo above, I have this to brag about! Ooops!
Masterchef Quality is not really about what the egg looks like. It’s still an egg. Masterchef Quality is about my dedication to give my dad a decent breakfast (it’s actually a good reason not to be hated for being such a con-artist placing something assuming on this blog’s title). A breakfast full of love and well, oil. Haha! I tried, though. Glad that’s over. Bucket List #19 is off the record! 🙂 Ciao!
