My porridge Mix



Seeds, peanuts, mulberry & figues

I love porridge during week days. They are quick and easy to do, but I prepare my porridge mixes in advance.

See, I hate the plain porridge. I find I find them… well plain! So, once a month I prepare a mix that looks like muesli which I use to make my morning porridge.

To make my mix I use oatflakes from Lidl, Seeds,  dried fruits and nuts from any supermarket that offers the best deal at the time.

Ingredients for my monthly mix

Ingredients for my monthly mix

This month I am putting the following in my mix: Oatflakes –  chopped sunflower seeds – sliced figs – chopped dried mulberries.

Mix (dry) it all well and put in a container. The mix will keep for long time if you do not use it regularly.

To make the morning serve, all I need is 4 table spoons of the above mix, in a bowl, add a small glass of milk. I use whole milk.

Place the bowl in it the microwave for 4 minutes and add 2 chopped kiwis or any other fresh fruits. I simply add sugar when I run out of fruits.


Breakfast is ready!

Don’t knock it until you’ve tried it… Plus it is good for the heart.

The Random Croissant

We are Saturday today and I was working away in Newcastle (North East UK) this week. I woke up with next to nothing to eat in the house. All I had was a croissant that I failed to eat from my breakfast yesterday… it was such a busy day what can I say?  I proceeded this morning to make said croissant interesting.

 So, I found in the house the following ingredients:DSC01688

-A small carrot; thinly sliced

-Half a red onion; thinly sliced

-2 cloves of garlic; thinly chopped

-A brazil nut; to grate

-Pure olive oil.

 *I stated by butterflying my not so fresh croissant and warming it in the oven until slightly crunchy.

*In a really hot frying pan with a bit of olive oil, fry the onion with thyme, then add in chopped garlic and carrot.  Add in a pinch of salt then stir until the carrot is cooked to your liking.

The Random Breakfast!*Place the crunchy/warm croissant in a serving dish; pour the content on your frying pan on the croissant. Then grate the raw Brazil nut on top of all that.

I didn’t have milk so, fresh grounded black coffee was my hot drink to accompany all that. Voila!

This is my idea of a random fry-up. Hope you’ll try it.

C ya!
