winter breakfasts and a welcome to February
It has been so cold for so long up here in the mountains, as January always is, but this year was a doozy. -15 day after day, and sheets of ice underfoot, so cooking inspiration suffered. But I always make a good breakfast , a fairly recent habit - me, who never had anything beyond several cups of coffee and, perhaps - a hunk of cheese as I raced the kids out the door! Now I often make a quick soup ( I call it a warm smoothie) and add some kind of protein like cheese or turkey, cheese or eggs. Sweet breakfasts I don't make very much, unless it's fresh fruits or Finnish fruit compote, mostly because sugar revs me up. Welcome to February, which is usually our snowiest month - and warmer! And tomorrow is our Izzie's 8th birthday!
