Breakfast: poached eggs on toast, berries, and cappuccino
Our standard breakfast consists of two poached eggs each, served on either toasted whole-wheat bread or toasted english muffins, and cappuccino. It's not the fastest breakfast, because we have to wait for the water to boil — it takes B about 15 minutes total to get breakfast on the table, most of which is spent while I'm in the shower. (On rushing days, we scramble the eggs: B says it takes him four to six minutes to scramble six eggs and make two cappuccinos.) But occasionally we go slightly fancier. Pictured above: one poached egg, served over toast with parsley-and-garlic butter, and cappuccino and strawberries and blackberries from the farmers' market.
