Sometimes, as a Mummy, it can be the simplest things your children do that bring the most happiness. My little boy, realising his Mummy was a bit sad about Lara not being at home, decided that what I needed was a cup of tea in bed this morning. So he made us both a cup of tea and brought them upstairs where he then took up residence in the bed next to me to give me a big hug to make make me happy again. Well it worked a treat. I am rarely made a cup of tea and never one to have in bed in the morning so I loved it. I didn’t have the heart to tell him that Mummy really likes breakfast tea in the morning, rather than green tea and that you never have green tea with milk! But the thought was all there and I was very grateful to that sweet child of mine.
I had a fancy for some eggy bread (French toast) for breakfast. Made with 1 slice of bread and 1 egg, served with 2 tbsp natural yogurt, raspberries, blueberries and 1 tsp chia seeds.
It was really good.
There was a break in the rain late morning so I popped outside and picked a large beetroot and several spring onions.
The beetroot was washed, I cut the leaves off, wrapped it in foil and baked it in the oven for about an hour.
I had some boiled potatoes left over from the other night so I chopped one up and added some chopped celery and spring onions.
Plus a little mayonnaise and some just cooked and chopped beetroot, still slightly warm.
I was hungry so I had quite a large plateful of food. All good stuff though.
I had the potato and beetroot salad, sprouted pulses and humous with pesto
plus black olives, rocket, cherry tomatoes and raw baby mushrooms.
So I was rather pleased with how I had eaten today. But then these came along. Chocolates in the style of desserts.
I was given them for my birthday but managed to put them away. Until today 😦
So having eaten chocolate, I didn’t need much for tea. An egg mayonnaise sandwich would do!
Eaten still warm and with nothing added other than mayonnaise, salt and pepper. Yummy.
