Pan Bagnat {Proven├žal Tuna Sandwich}

When I turned 11, my mother brought me on a trip to Paris. I remember the same happening for my sister. My brother was brought to Manchester to see Man United play at Old Trafford by my father. 

I remember friends asking me at the age of 11 what I got for my birthday. To which I told them that my mother was bringing me to Paris for a few days. For me, that was the most extravagant birthday present ANY 11 year old could receive. It still is. I can't believe that I was lucky enough to be brought on a trip like that. 

If I ever have children, I'll have to keep this part of my life very quiet. We can't have every 11 year old thinking that a trip to Paris is a normal birthday gift!!  

Do you want to know why we were brought on trips at the age of 11? It was just before we left childhood and it was to show us that there was an exciting world of culture and beauty out there.......

Let that sink in for a second. 

I don't think I could be anymore grateful for my parents having this outlook on life and our lives at such a young age. 

The trip obviously had an impact on me. If the goal was for me to move out-it worked! The trip to Paris paid off for my parents as I now don't live at home!! (Joking) 

Look at me though, I'm still discovering the world. I've been living in New York for almost an entire year and there is still so much more to discover.

Single Lady Lemon Poppy Seed Pancake

A single lady pancake can also be called a single man pancake. I'm not a man, so therefore I do not write in that person. But, single men, you are not excluded from this post. 

ACTUALLY nobody is excluded from the post. A single lady pancake essentially serves one. One single lady, one single man, one man or lady in a relationship. 

NOBODY is excluded from pancakes. Ever.

There is nothing more perfect than having a relaxed and lazy, homemade breakfast. Sometimes you want pancakes and sometimes you know that if you make an entire batch and have no one to share them with,  you'll eat them all. Don't act like you're all a controlled bunch of people out there!

Sometimes it's just you in the house and you want to have pancakes for breakfast with a mug of coffee and a good book. 

I cannot take credit for this single lady pancake. 'Single lady' recipes were all over the internet last year. Naturally, I'm only getting on the trend now. I still haven't even read The Harry Potter books. I probably never will either.

Roasted Asparagus and Eggs

Everyone needs a sexy little breakfast recipe that they can whip up in no time. This one just so happens to be it! 

If you've got everything in the fridge, a super impressive breakfast will be on the table in less than 20 minutes! 

Now who doesn't want that for a lazy morning? Or any morning, really. 

Whether this is for yourself, a loved one or a whole gang of people it's perfect. 

It ticks all the breakfast boxes: it's got eggs (duh), it's filling, there's toast, it's healthy, it's inexpensive and it's quick and easy.
