The nice thing about waking early yesterday and running around like a madwoman trying to do all my chores before 11 AM, is that it meant I got to take today slow. Bed till 8, breakfast with the paper (egg and kale and feta on sourdough), and then a pot of tea at my friend's beautiful table in her sunny kitchen. She even had Monk Pear, which those who know me will know is my very favourite of all the teas. Granola was the order of the day and we hit up the wholefoods in Balmain for exactly $4.25 of supplies, then back to hers to mix and bake. We went for rolled oats, a big heap of shredded coconut, dried apricots, cranberries and blueberries, walnuts and pecans, a little linseed and chia, and I think some pepitas and sesames. We followed SCB's lead and baked it off with a mix of brown rice syrup and honey and a dash of cinnamon. And coming in from the garden (after I'd taken a few cuttings from her pots), the kitchen smelt like heaven. Sweet, fruity, jump-out-of-bed-for-a-crunchy-bowl-of-granola heaven.
I think it's going to be a good week.
