it all starts with breakfast

I must have a thing with breakfast.  I mean, I'm a believer in eating breakfast, and I really enjoy it, and I do it daily.  The other day I had a dentist appointment in the morning, giving me more time to make and relish in a "special" breakfast (a.k.a. something that takes more than .5 minutes to prepare and would be difficult to eat at my desk at work).  Two words:  breakfast tacos.  I love that tacos are really easy to make, highly adaptable, and also delicious.  These breakfast tacos featured scrambled eggs with green onions whipped in, cheese, salsa, sour cream, and chopped spicy lettuce from the farmers' market.

When vacationing in Mexico last spring, I had the great pleasure of enjoying a great leisurely breakfast every day.  One of my favorites was this great plate of juevos rancheros.  This could be easily replicated at home with some good tortilla chips, scrambled eggs, queso fresco, cilantro, salsa and refried beans.  My only complaint was that the coffee refills with this desayuno were hard to come by.
