Yoghurt Week - Day One
I was lucky enough to be sent out a rather large supply of Total Greek Yoghurt. I was extra pleased because it is my normal yoghurt of choice and I know just how delicious it is. It was a bit of a tight squeeze in my wee fridge, but all in all I was a very happy blogger.
I sat and had a think about what I might make with the yoghurt and instantly came up with a few ideas, so I decided to make a little series of it. I hereby christen this week 'Yoghurt Week'. I plan to post a different recipe or serving suggestion each day.
I am easing myself into Monday with some 0% Total Yoghurt for breakfast. "What's new about that?" I hear you say. May I remind you I have recently had a baby. Let me give you a run down of my morning.
Baby wakes. I wake. Baby plays with music box happily for 20 minutes or so. I lie with my eyes shut and try to wake up without alerting baby I am awake (sneaky huh?). I eventually give in to the fact that I have to get up. Baby is instantly aware I have opened my eyes and starts getting excited, gurgling and kicking his legs. I get out of bed, walk around the bed and smile down at baby in his crib and say good morning. Next, I wake daddy, who has to get up for work anyway and pass baby to him. Daddy takes baby and changes his nappy while I go downstairs and make daddy's lunch. Daddy brings baby downstairs and I feed baby for about an hour, playing on facebook whilst feeding baby.Daddy leaves for work during this time. Baby finishes feeding and I burp baby. Chat to baby for a while and then head upstairs with baby to make the bed and tidy around. Head downstairs, open mail and water plants. Take baby upstairs and give him his bath and get him dressed. Read baby a story, have a cuddle. Time for another feed and some time to check emails and blog whilst feeding baby. Do a spot of housework, have shower and get dressed. Time for another feed. "Oh my goodness, it's 2pm and I haven't had anything to eat yet!".
Yes, that is how my morning usually goes. Breakfast doesn't get a look in and if I have to be anywhere early it is a nightmare and the house is just abandoned in whatever state it is in until we get home again. Goodness knows how I am going to manage when I go back to work.
Baby has kindly fallen asleep this morning. Neither of us are washed and dressed yet, but I am going to take advantage of the moment and have some breakfast. I am going to treat myself to my favourite Summer start to the day. Greek yoghurt with fresh fruit and honey. As an extra treat I am having my yoghurt, strawberries, raspberries and blueberries with a dollop of manuka honey (courtesy of my friend Lisa). Mmmmmmmm, it is so good. More like caramel than honey.
Breakfast. I should have it more often.
