To start the day

3:365 start the day

I am really big on breakfast. I am one of those irritating people who is forever going on about it being the most important meal of the day and so forth. This grates upon The Technical Advisor no end. The Technical advisor is certainly not a breakfast person, in fact, if truth be told, not really a morning person either which must make me a double thorn in his side.

Weekdays are normally limited to porridge, muesli or something by Mr Kellogs, fresh orange juice and some toast or fruit; but weekends? Mmmm, I love weekend breakfasts. I love laying the table for something slow and relaxed. No need to rush, time to enjoy and I often sit on at the table after everyone else has left, sipping more coffee and reading a book or magazine. Perfect morning moments.


Today it was pancakes, fat, fluffy Amercian style pancakes. Sweet maple syrup, sharp raspberries and salty butter. And reading with coffee. A very good start to my day.

Oh, I really do love breakfast too. and in a household of 7, I think only 2 of us do : ( I'm all for lingering over breakfast . . . maybe until lunch.

Completely agree with you about breakfast--my favorite meal of the day by far! And even better when it's pancakes... K x

I am not a morning person, nor a breakfast person, so I can sympathize with your husband. But on the weekend if it is after 9 I can eat a large portion myself. :)

I am hoping to continue my 3 day trend of photographing something every day, but until I get my new laptop all figured out I will not be posting photos on my blog daily. I will come here to enjoy yours in the meantime.

I'm a morning person who loves breakfast too. Cannot miss it. We had American pancakes this weekend - with maple syrup, bananas and greek yoghurt.

Wow! That sounds so familiar! I love breakfasts and like yourself, it's normally muesli or weetabix or yoghurt and fruit etc... but I love the special weekend breakfast idea. :)

Happy New Year btw!!!!!!!!
