Guatemalan Breakfast

I've never been to Guatemala but Kathryn has. So when she invited us over for a homemade Guatemalan breakfast, I was like, "What time?" and ready to go before the food was even cooked.

She didn't think I'd like it because everyone in my family says I'm a boring eater and not daring (especially when it comes to food)--I like my meat (cooked) and potatoes, a little too much - but when my hubby wants me to try squid, blood sausage, or pickled herring- (which we seem to always have in the fridge) and steak tartar-- (call me odd--but, like I said, I like my beef cooked) - so, I'm not into trying a lot of new things my husband recommends (very highly), believe me.

(Pickled Herring)

But this was different. Kathryn was intending on having the eggs cooked, not cracked raw over uncooked meat then sprinkled with capers and Kosher salt.

And, Kathryn was very clear that I didn't have to eat anything I didn't want to put in my mouth. But I ate it all--and a little more than I should have.

She made home made red and green sauce, tortillas and fried plantains. 

They sliced the plantains thinly and then fried them in oil, then dried them off and refried them: YUMMMMMM!

And the green sauce was made with tomatillos, cilantro, lemon juice, and lime juice. It was so light and refreshing with just a hint of spice :D Good thing I went for a run that morning.

While I bet this was good, I can't bring myself to think of it as breakfast food!
