Breakfast


Breakfast is the first meal of the day. The word came about because it means breaking the fast after one has not eaten (fasted) since the night before.

The things I do at night huh……when your husband gets out of the chair, start to make tea, covers the table with table cloth, tea cups, tea pot, brings out the toaster etc at 11 pm at night, you must think he is going crazy….well he is, crazy about this hobby of his!

Here I have used 2 strobes, 1 from right behind through a shoot through umbrella and one from left behind shot bare!

About European breakfasts:
(source http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Breakfast  )

As a general rule, traditional breakfasts are less substantial and less elaborate in the warmer, more southern countries bordering the Mediterranean, while breakfasts are traditionally larger, with a greater variety of dishes and greater prevalence of hot dishes in the cooler northern- and central-European countries.

Hotels and other types of lodging in Europe typically include breakfast in their rates, and in many cases, especially in larger hotels, it is served as a buffet. Specific items will vary from country to country, depending on local breakfast tastes and habits. In Switzerland, for example, cold cuts (luncheon meats), cheese, yoghurt, prepared fruit, butter, croissants, breads, and rolls are served. Sometimes foods belonging to the British breakfast (eggs, sausages, tomatoes (fresh, grilled or canned), bacon) can occasionally be found as part of the buffet.
