Late-summer breakfast

Somehow I’ve developed the habit of eating a toasted corn tortilla topped with goat cheese and slice jalapenos for breakfast. Is that weird? I don’t know.

This morning, though, I picked some zucchini blossoms. 

This morning's harvest wasn't enough for stuffing and frying...

I didn’t have enough to go to the effort of stuffing and frying, so I chopped one up and sprinkled it on my tortilla. Such a lovely, delicate flavor.









I’m quite sure that if you eat a flower in the morning, you’ll have a good day.

Note: I get my chewy, dense, handmade corn tortillas in East LA at La Azteca Tortilleria, 4538 E. Cesar E. Chavez Avenue. Los 5 Puntos, on the same street, is also good. If I’m out of good tortillas and can’t make the trip east, I’ll eat Trader Joe’s homemade corn tortillas.

Question: What do you eat for breakfast?
