On Saturday mornings, no matter the season, I’ll wake to find my family clamoring for migas, the comforting Spanish-style scramble of eggs, fried chorizo, and crusty cubes of day-old bread, which I’ll sizzle in olive oil, bleary-eyed, at my stove. Sitting down together at the kitchen table, my two young boys will argue afterward over which part of the dish is best. One loves the crunchy sautéed bread; the other, the spicy, salty morsels of chorizo. My wife? She enjoys the creamy, golden scrambled eggs. But I just savor how all of those elements come together, each delectable forkful marking the start to a weekend filled with family, good meals, and relaxation.
