Did it look something like this?
While caviar is not my standard breakfast fare, I did feel legitimately Russian today with this spread. Caviar may or may not have crossed your mind as a breakfast dish. In my case, it hadn't. But one of my singers gifted me this beautiful tub of caviar yesterday, along with bread, butter, and instructions:
"You should eat it for breakfast. Or any time of day really. But definitely breakfast."
She's been explaining Russian traditional dishes to me for the past few days...we are coming off one of their most elaborate holidays (New Years) and a Russian spread is something to behold...so in the spirit of cultural understanding and appreciation, breakfast it was.
While this was not my first experience with caviar, I haven't eaten it on a regular enough basis to have my mind wrapped around that texture. The first bite is always slightly questionable, the second bite is all about mental processing, and from thereon, I'm good to go. And oddly enough, I finish it and find myself curiously excited to repeat the process. Which I did, just before typing that line, in an effort to ensure this post was as accurate as possible. And maybe to have another excuse to spread excessive amounts of butter onto an innocent piece of bread...
People, I like it. I think I may be officially acclimated.
Anything interesting on your plates this morning?
