The luxury of breakfasts. What’s yours? We love our breakfasts in our household. Mine is usually boring- yogurt with my home made granola, or different variations of eggs + kimchi. For the guys in my household, it would be the same but with a variety of banana bread, buckwheat cracker with avocado and tomatoes, smoothie bowls and pancakes. On a Sunday, we may even have sausages, mushrooms, spinach and an egg.
I get excited when it is a long weekend. A chance to take my time to cook up something different. You could grate the sweet potato, but I just mashed some up, mix it with zucchini and egg. Pan fry it and serve it with poached egg. We are very lucky to have some gorgeous fresh ricotta cheese- that totally lift the fritters up.
Toddler Talk P3
Me: Sorry Asher. That’s enough milk. You can have water instead
Asher: “No! I want to cry instead.”
Asher: “are you happy?”
Me (Feeling frustrated with repeated attempts to get him to sit at the table): “NO asher, I’m upset because you are not sitting at the table finishing your dinner.”
(After a few seconds)
Asher: “Mummy! You are pretty! (Big smiles)
“Are you happy now?”
Me (with raised eyebrows): “Thank you for the compliment. But you still need to sit at the table and eat.”
Asher: “awwwwww” (cheeky smile on his face)
Daddy:” Ok asher, we have to share watermelon with mamma”
Asher: “OK! I share a big piece”
Daddy: “Thats good sharing!”
Asher: “Give mamma the big skin of watermelon!”
me: “Why did you wake last night?”
Asher: I wanted to see mummy”
Me: “But why? Was it a nightmare?”
Asher: “Because I like you mummy.”
Me: “That’s enough crackling. The last one is for daddy.”
Asher: “Can daddy share with me?”
Me: “There is only 1 left. If you have that, daddy won’t have anymore.”
