Beautiful Breakfast

Sylvia's Boiled Egg Butter Soldiers Dukkah

Here’s a lovely idea for a beautiful breakfast. Simplicity at its best. No need for a recipe really. Just add sunshine and smiles and you will have a simply relaxing breakfast for a lazy Sunday morning or whenever you feel like it!

The egg cup was sent from Europe to my mother and father when I was born. That means it’s pretty old. Over the years it has developed a soft patina and it’s been kept well, just like me. 🙂 The very special antique spoon is designed based on the legendary and romantic Thousand Year Rose. The elegant floral platter is of European origin. And the embroidered tablecloth was handmade by my great grandmother.

Enjoy the autumn sunshine!
