Breakfast Time

mum is a little obsessed with muesli, she has a whole tried and tested formula
where she soaks it in water, adds bits and bobs (seeds and nuts) then eats it
all with natural yoghurt. To be honest
it looks pretty complicated and just reaching for a breakfast cereal from the
cupboard and pouring directly in the bowl is enough for myself to cope with in
the morning! With my eyes all bleary
from having settled in the boys in the night, just finding the cereal cupboard
is a good start!!!

the cold weather chilling us to the bones, I wish I loved porridge like my
dad. After he has been out walking the
dog, there is nothing like a warming bowl of it to defrost him.

The boys seem to want a
mini banquet for breakfast, cereal, and then yoghurt followed by toast (with
chocolate spread or jam depending on their mood!). Then they wash it down with lots of milk, before demanding their
chewy vitamin tablet! Often I find we
do not have long in the morning, as fitting in all that food seems to leave us
little time for the washing and dressing part before the mad sprint to school,
just before the bell rings!

My ideal breakfast would
be a giant stack of pancakes, freshly squeezed orange juice and maybe a calorie
infused Danish to top it off! Ideally
with the boys having a sleepover at my mum’s so I get to enjoy it all in
peace. Followed by a therapeutic cup of
tea and I would be ready to face anything…

on the other hand would probably want a full cooked breakfast with all the
trimmings (laden down with lard!). But
I am quite partial to sausages and bacon myself; finally being well again as a
family the thought of all food is quite tempting! For a few days of my chest infection I could barely manage to
drink without feeling sick! Now I just
want to make up for it with eating EVERYTHING…
