In my family breakfast is with salad (generally cucumbers, lettuce, tomatoes), bread/jonnhy cakes, eggs/fish, fruits from the garden accompanied with homemade tea made with lime leaves/ menthe/ Cinnamon/ soursop leaves / menthe / basilica leaves etc. Indeed a full breakfast then you are not hungry before night. 🙂 Thinking about it is a wonder that i’m still skinny :D. But when we had no time for such big breakfast it would be just a few johnny cakes with cheese/chicken/ham… Johnny cakes are like bread just a different taste and form but you stuff it the same way as would do with a regular bread or you can eat it plain. It could also be patés which are practical because they are already stuffed before they cook so easier to take away.
Have a nice day everyone! And if you are in SXM or are going to it, don’t forget to ask for a few of those meal. If you can’t find where to get it, i’ll be glad to recommend you a few places. Cheers!
