I’ve had a lot of delicious breakfasts.  I used to work at the Las Vegas Convention, and we’d get breakfast if we had to work early in the morning, about 4 a.m.  These were breakfasts for which the convention people paid about $40-50.  We’d get scrambled eggs, bacon, juice, pastries, coffee, tea, marmalade toast, eggs Benedict, etc.  Really delicious breakfasts.

The breakfasts were really good, but the best breakfast I’ve ever eaten is the breakfast my mother used to cook for me.  My mother used to cook the best oatmeal ever.  She’d take oatmeal, beat it to make it floury-looking.  When it was floury enough, she’d add milk to a pan,wait for it to start boiling, and slowly add the oatmeal, some sugar and cinnamon.  She’d let the oatmeal cook slowly, about 20 minutes to cook. She keep stirring it to make sure it didn’t get stuck to the bottom of the pan.  When the oatmeal began to bubble, she knew it was ready.  She’d spoon oatmeal on everyone’s plate and add more cinnamon on top. It was delicious.  It wasn’t too thick nor watery.  It was just the right consistency.  I loved it.  I’ve tried making the oatmeal myself, but, somehow, it doesn’t taste anything like my mother’s.  I guess it was the love she added to the oatmeal that made it taste so much better.

So even though oatmeal is a very simple breakfast, it was the best breakfast I’ve ever eaten.
