Over the years I have changed the way I have breakfast many times.
As a child I often had polenta with milk and honey or “Zuf” polenta porridge (this is because where I used to live I was surrounded by corn fields!). Sometimes of course like many Italian children I would have biscuits dipped in milk (gosh I used to love that!) or whipped egg yolks with sugar served with warm milk (very 1970s!) or bread with butter and jam.
Then as a teenager I moved onto what some industries like to call “cereals” like corn flakes and so on and then I went back to bread with jam and coffee.
Then I had the phase when brioche and cappuccino were my favourite breakfasts ever..I would stop at the bar on my way to secondary school and get myself a freshly made brioche still warm from the oven. The smell and taste of that was divine especially the one with jam in the middle.
These days, a different age and with different tastebuds it is often yogurt with lots of fruit, flaxseeds and a sprinkle of granola although I am not a huge fan of too much granola as it is quite rich and I find it too sweet too.
Yesterday whilst hubby was really busy working I started playing with some fruit.. how lucky that I can do that whilst someone else slaves off in order to put bread on the table, but hey how would I be able to write this blog if I was working full time? My blog would die and I would die with it too!
Look at this, I almost ate all the fruit after creating it.. I could not resist it.
I whizzed some raspberries and added a tsp of honey and made this sauce. My son loved it on top of toasted bread and butter instead of jam.
I poured some on top of my yogurt, added some fruit including some fresh coconut pieces and drizzled everything with honey. Nice!
Oh, I forgot I also added a tbsp of granola for a crunchy bite too.
A glass of freshly squeezed orange juice is what I was brought up with so I often have one first thing in the morning.
But where is the coffee?
Here it is of course, where on earth would I be without it.
And you, what’s your favourite breakfast?
