Saturday mornings are my ‘me time’ mornings!
Thanks to the fact that the kids don’t surface before lunch on a Saturday and Mr Frugal is usually at work, I get to have a relaxed morning all to myself. I make the most of it too – waking up whenever I wake up with no alarms (it’s still usually early though), taking the time to have a nice soak in the bath before I get dressed and then having a bacon sandwich with my cup of tea while reading my Kindle. Bliss!
I look forward to my Saturday mornings on my own so when Mr Frugal was at home with me one morning, I tried to carry on regardless even though I could hear him playing bang bang shooty games on his XBox while I soaked in the bath. I managed to tune that out (just) and when I was done, I went downstairs to make my usual cuppa and bacon sandwich.
I very kindly asked him if he would like to join me for a bacon sandwich, obviously secretly hoping he would say no so I could sit and eat mine in peace. He didn’t say no though – do you know what he actually said?
Never mind bacon, let’s have a sausage sandwich instead.
What? Absolutely not!
Why would you possibly want a sausage sandwich instead of a bacon one?
I tried explaining that a bacon sandwich was the way forward because (a) bacon doesn’t roll off your bread like a sausage would and (b) bacon is just much nicer. Oh and also (c) you can make your bacon cover your whole slice of bread by spreading out a couple of slices – you can’t so that with a sausage can you?
He was having none of it though so we cooked some bacon and sausage in the airfryer and I quickly made my sandwich when it was finished and watched him struggle with trying to slice two hot sausages so he could put them in his sandwich.
I’d almost finished mine before he was done!
I was reminded of our little debate when HP sent him a bottle of Father’s Day HP sauce to go with his breakfast yesterday! The kids wanted to make him breakfast in bed seeing as I was at work and from what I heard, they took him a tray made up of a bacon sandwich, some fresh orange and his bottle of HP sauce which isn’t a bad way to wake up on a Sunday morning is it?
Are you team bacon or team sausage sandwich?
