We westerners are weird. We have decided that certain foods are meant for certain times of the day. Eggs are for breakfast, at a push we can have them for lunch. Rice is definitely not for breakfast and oats are designed to only be eaten before work.
These rules blur slightly when you are a poor student. Cereal for supper is totally acceptable and pizza for breakfast happens more often then most will admit. Lunch is whatever you happen to find in the cupboard/fridge or if you hit the jackpot, whatever mom baught.
Then you grow up, get a job, start a family and are back to the notion of 3 square meals at set times and with restricted list of ingredients. Square sounds about right, boring and lacking creativity, predictable. One day you are introduced to a new way of eating. Be it a new lifestyle, or you travel abroad.
This has happened to me. A new way of eating and this inspired lunch the other day, why should bacon and eggs be just for breakfast? Found some beautiful young asparagus, got some quality bacon and I had the day off. The ideal combination for something I had been wanting to try make for a while, coupled with a craving for bacon and asparagus (I only eat those delicious green spears if they are locally grown, which means only in season)
Give it a try, you will feel rebellious and empowered and best of all happy tummy full.
For my non South African reader an oopsie is a bacon wrapped skewer normally put on the braa (bbq).
