Weekender Breakfast

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day...we all know this...but during the week it is hard to manage more than a bowl of corn flakes (sometimes with half a banananana on top) or a slice of toast with peanut is not like I am rushing to get to work (not yet at least), I just don't have the desire or hunger to eat much more at 7:30 in the morning!

On the weekend...however...I feel differently.  Even if I am up with the sun I manage to actually FEEL like breakfast...something different...but not necessarily a fry up, besides we rarely have fry up essentials in our fridge just waiting to be used (everything has a purpose...everything has been rationed...budget budget budget).

After my inspiring treats at Edinburgh Larder and Leo's Beanery I've started to make my own porridge with milk (a real treat) on the weekends and jazz it up with fruit and honey and molasses sugar and...well anything, really.

This morning it was Banana, Nectarine and Blueberries with Molasses Sugar (and some more milk) with a large cup of coffee...just the thing to get me ready for the weekend.

If you are interested in more obscure ways to jazz up your porridge...check out the Oatmeal Project on Tastespotting...with salmon and avocado...or as a base for eggs benedict...


  1. This looks too beautiful to eat! We're still harvesting local blueberries here, so I'll try this.

  2. This looks so delicious! And it's definitely something that would agree with my fussy tummy! Not to mention healthy!

  3. Sue...i am jealous of your local blueberries!

    A Trifle...very yum!

    OBaCS...i love summery fruits on oatmeal...wish i could afford them year round! :)

  4. I really, really wish I liked porridge, it is such a good breakfast. But I think it's a textural thing - I just can't stomach it. If I ever DO manage to convince myself otherwise, this particular combination sounds seriously yummy!
