corner view "breakfast" of champions



Forget paella, tortilla, or even red wine ... The Spanish staple ... chocolate milk. Spaniards drink this morning noon, and night. I´m talking ... children´s first words are "Cola Cao," posh men in suits, in bars, drinking it for breakfast, not too hungry for dinner, "have a Cola Cao,"... kind of a staple. Now if only I could find out if Mr. Cao has a nice son for Sara...

Next week´s theme is "modes of transportation" from the lovely ladybug-zen. Ian you are up next.


caitlin, joyce, ani, couturecoucou, kim, a day that is dessert, natsumi, epe, kaylovesvintage, trinsch, c.t.,

*hey "malo" from Stockholm I need your link. Thanks!


*Sorry Elizabeth for misspelling your link. I´ve corrected it and promise to wear my glasses...

** Two more corrections: Fracesca´s and Allison´s... Sorry about this. Don´t miss their posts on breakfast- they are fab! (Please correct your links... and don´t kill me...)

C.T. said...

I was already waiting for you dear. Goodmorning to you too!! Can I have breakfast at your place?? Looks simple and FAB and sooo much my taste!! SWEET.
Have a great day, XX, Carmencita

Esti said...

ha, ha... Everybody thinks colacao (chocolate milk) is a drink for children and people usually have coffee in the morning... I just don't have that adult side of me fully grown, you know...

Allison said...

Germans love their chocolate for breakfast too with the ever-famous Nutella. Loved your post.

Victoria said...

Hi! Was wondering if I could be included in the list too! I found your blog through Francesca's.

Schanett said...

an ex-flatmate offered me a milk chocolate made of cola cao years ago. I have to confess that at the end I ate the whole box - spoon for spoon...
and felt very guilty at the end because I coudn't find cola cao in our supermarkets to replace it...

Kaylovesvintage said...

looks yummy...I really start to have warm feeling for Spain

Ian said...

The Spanish do like their chocolate. When I was there, I loved the chocolate-dipped churros on a winter morning.

ladybug-zen said...

i remember it well :) she says as she licks her lips!

Dim Sum, Bagels, and Crawfish said...

Looks delicious and I love the idea of everyone from kids to business men sipping chocolate milk.

I am really enjoying this whole corner view series and feeling very tempted to join in the fun. It's a great way to travel the world!

Cele said...

I love chocolate milk! Here is more common to call it Nesquik... or just chocolatada...
I used to drink it every afternoon as a kid...
:D

savannah gourmet said...

Great shot, Jane! For us it's Ovaltine. My kids adore it, and I must admit I've been known to down a glass or two myself, especially in the middle of the night when I can't sleep. It really works!

Cate said...

I discovered that you could flavor milk in the UK, I'd never heard of chocolate (or banana or strawberry) milk before!
This corner view project is a lot of fun, thanks!

sealaura said...

Hola! I just found you via sweet Joyce at a perfect beginning. Great pictures here . I grew up with chocomilk or leche con chocolate. it is still my go to comfort snack. I drink it when I can't sleep, when I am cold etc etc. Anyway, I so excited to visit you more and I have become a follower! Saludos de California y un abrazo.

Le blÖg d'Ötli said...

Can I take my breakfast with you too ? I think your initiative is a nice idea...

Miam

Flo said...

I looooove your blog!!!!
And I also love Cola Cao, only I had to stop buying it because at the rate it gets drunk in my house, it was too expensive. Seriously!

Greetings from Chile

Ian said...

Jane, please can you add Ötli to your list of corner View links? Thanks.

MisterE said...

Now that is my kind of breakfast!!

C.T. said...

Jane, my dear, I'm going to bed now, but just wanted to say THANX for the great "worldtour". I have neglected my kids, my house my husband, myself.....the whole day, just to visit all these blogs ;-p Loved it big time and I'm soooo glad it's just once a week. Dear lord in heaven....I would get totally insane!!!

Joyce said...

Jane, I had to laugh at Carmie's post. I too have neglected EVERYTHING this morning visiting everyone's blog. I hope I didn't miss anyone. Miss Kelly has been crying for her food, my love is home asking what is for dinner. Ooop do you think he will buy it that it is date night?! LOL...
PS thank goodness corner view isn't on Thursday I would have to quit my job! xoxo
