We love breakfast

desayunos - by mistika on

We love breakfast...we usually have a Colombian breakfast or an Egyptian breakfast while putting together my little collage I realize that us Colombians have many many more options for breakfast than baba's. The sad thing is that allot of the Colombian goodies for breakfast are not available here in Baton Rouge..I could always make them from scratch but that would mean waking up at 5:00 AM to make the food.

The only thing we have in common among the two different types of breakfast are the beans or frijoles like we call them, or foul like they call them in Egypt. However our beans are kidney or red beans the Egyptian type are fava beans.

Nenas you guys love the foul sometimes baba makes them with tahina, or yogurt, and tomatoes, or olive oil, and lemon. With a nice hot pita bread yummy yummy.

Nenas you guys also love to eat the arepas or the bunuelos or los huevos pericos like we call them in Colombia.

On a new note, I will be gone for a couple of days would be back to posting maybe Sunday or Monday...salam!!!!

I absolutely love arepas con queso. I have a Colombian friend that makes them for me all the time. But my personal favorite breakfast is a big piece of pan cubano y un cafe con leche.
