Setting a Good(ish?) Example



Whatever time you are reading this, someone, somewhere in the world is eating breakfast. But it’s not me. Except after today, it probably always is, because now I have this recipe. This stuff is fabulous for lunch and afternoon tea and undoubtedly a midnight snack and everything inbetween – including that hour or so after a thrown-together dinner of scrambled eggs and toast, when you realise that one breakfast does not a dinner make, but two breakfasts do.

I know this, because I won a Bountifully giveaway and existed solely on Tracey’s homecrafted Almond and Cranberry Muesli for two days. So while I am a terrible breakfast at breakfast time person, soon I am going to be an excellent breakfast at every time person. Finally setting a good sort of Breakfast-is-the-Most-Important-Meal-of-the-Day example for the kids. Only getting things all a bit skewiff, as usual.



I also received a lovely cottony dishcloth. Except there’s never much to clean up after that scrape-the-bowl-clean muesli stuff.

blushing redder than a beetroot on your complements, Tania :)
Glad you were able to photograph that dishcloth without showing my dodgy colour changing "technique" xx

Im not a breakfast person either, but last week I had the hugest craving for museli, so I went to the store bought some awesome crunchy museli, vanilla yogurt, apples, dried cranberries and honey...since then, I eat breakfast everyday, and when I went to a pals for brunch on Sunday, I had it for an afternoon snack! Lets hear it for MUSELI!

I tend to forget about breakfast altogether (for myself), which I hear is wrong, wrong, wrong. I do however, love a good muesli at any time of day. Thank you for sharing.

I had cheesecake for breakfast today and Twisties for brekky yesterday.
Is that bad?

That muesli looks so good. I have been enjoying Carmen's Fruit Deluxe and the gluten free fruit toast made right here on the Central Coast. Lordy. They're both yum.

Yum!
A good muesli is good for the soul (especially when you choose it over the enormous box of bloody fundraising chocolate that torments you from the pantry!)

Yum! And the dishcloth looks too nice to wash up with! xo m.

Amanda said...

That does look good! It's always nice to find a solution to a problem....Even better when it tastes good ;)

Fer said...

Aw yum-o!

I have literally just finished my breakfast. ReadyBrek, with stewed apples, cinnamon and a teeny bit of brown sugar. Followed by fig roll biscuits to help the vitamin pills go down.

That muesli does look nice, but my teeth (or what's left of them) are telling me I'd regret it. So you'll just have to have an extra bowl for me.

As long as this doesn't mean you are having cold pizza at 7:30am, I think this passes as a good example!

Cheers,
AJ

Oh I can't have home made muesli in the house or...you are right- it is eaten for breakfast, lunch, dinner, morning tea, afternoon tea, and in between! But I have favourited the link as it is always good to have the option ;)

Mel said...

Totally. I make a Bill's "moos-li" when I can be bothered and then it gets eaten at lightening fast speeds all through out the day. And even though it's usually got LASHINGS of FULL FAT yoghurt on top of it I feel no guilt at all!

mmm totally yum!
