Breakfast Championship

Apologies to Maggie Mason and “Nobody Cares What You Had For Lunch.”

I’ve long held that cold pizza is the ideal breakfast. Couple of slices of leftover pizza, fresh from the fridge, and a big, hot cup of coffee. Dunno if there’s a finer meal to start the day.

Oh, sure, a fresh bagel spread with guacamole, with slices of tomato straight out the the garden, paper-thin slices of red onion, and Swiss cheese is a fine first meal of the day, now that I think about it.

But I have found yet another unconventional breakfast to savor, and it is leftover chili eaten with corn chips. You know how chili is always better as leftovers. The beans soak up most of the sauce and all the spices mellow. It turns out to be absolutely perfect to scoop up with tortilla chips.

My opinions on leftover saag paneer are consistent with my take on pizza and/or chili, by the way. Perfectly acceptable breakfast. Ideal, in fact. Cereal’s for chumps.

    Those all sound like delicious options. Would you share your chili recipe with me? The chili we had at your house was delicious!
