Each Thursday, Emily Vikre (a.k.a. fiveandspice) will be sharing a new way to love breakfast -- because breakfast isn't just the most important meal of the day. It's also the most awesome.

Today: Five breakfasts that taste like vacation on a plate (or in a glass). 

A Turkish(ish) Breakfast

There are a few things that make summer truly feel like vacation: Lounging in the sun on warm rocks next to the ocean, for example, or meandering down a cobblestone street in search of bits of history or funky shops. Having a beer or glass of rosé with lunch. Or eating breakfast outside, in the most leisurely manner -- two cups of coffee, please.  

More: Combine your morning coffee with your morning smoothie. Call it a "Jumpin' Monkey."

Some of these things -- okay, one of them -- you can do even if you're not on vacation. With just a touch of planning ahead, and maybe by getting up a little early, you can take half an hour to savor your breakfast and coffee, maybe sitting outside on a deck, maybe just sitting in front of an open window. Either way, the act of slowing down first thing in the morning will give you a mini vacation, even if the next place you're headed is the office instead of a piazza or a white sandy beach. Here are five summery breakfasts to set the stage.

I love grated zucchini, chopped scallions scrambled with eggs.

Yum. I've been getting really into grated zucchini - as opposed to chopped - as well!
