So instead I thought I’d share two things. First, the flowers above; aren’t they gorgeous?!
My best friend has been struck down by an evil combination of swine flu and a vomiting bug. She’s been so ill she couldn’t get out of bed for days and I’ve been doing her horses. I knew she felt bad about my doing the work, although I didn’t mind at all, but how lovely to send these (and to sign them from her five-month-old daughter, my goddaughter, too).
This was a real “ha ha, flowers for me – what, really?” moment at work when they were delivered. Bless her heart and it put a huge smile on my face 🙂
The second thing I have to share is possibly one of the best breakfasts I’ve ever had:
Ok, not to look at, necessarily…!
But this was another baked porridge except instead of spreading banana across the top halfway through cooking, I mashed it, mixed it with almond butter, and put it on the bottom of the (lined) baking dish, then poured the oats/oat bran/water/egg white on top.
I wasn’t sure whether it would work or just mush together but it was delicious. For some reason, the texture was so much creamier and smoother. (And more delicious). And I don’t know how I’d managed to forget just how deliciously delicious (repeated words are seriously justified here!) the banana/almond butter combination is. If you haven’t tried it yet, do so immmediately 🙂
I’m in love….!
Off to bed now… does anyone else see Friday nights as a chance to catch up on sleep instead of going partying?? I wouldn’t have the energy – but maybe that’s just me 😉
