Rob’s Favorite Breakfast

This is my husband’s favorite breakfast! Rob is an early riser, starting his day sometime between 2:30-4:00 AM. Way too early for me. He doesn’t have far to travel, just down the hall into his home office. Then, around 5:30AM he’s had his morning coffee and is ready for breakfast. Several times a week he prepares wonderful scrambled eggs with a side of sautéed vine fresh tomatoes and mushrooms. To dress the eggs up, he’ll add fresh herbs as a final step. So, while it’s still dark, and flashlight in hand, he snips a sprig or two from potted herbs around the outdoor kitchen. It could be sage, rosemary, chive, oregano whatever strikes his fancy. They’re all terrific!
