Strawberries are still around. They’re bigger now and keep a little bit better. They don’t really *last* around our house, but at least they keep overnight. Then they make a delicious breakfast.
Robin’s pound cake, strawberries and vanilla yogurt – the perfect start to a day.
That is, the perfect start after our “normal” breakfast.
Robin likes cereal. It usually costs 3,500 rwf (~$6) for a box of American Shredded Wheat or Fruit ‘N Fiber. He can make a box last for a couple of weeks so it works out ok. Every morning he has his bowl of cereal.
I eat Quaker Oats. Yes, I’m sure my mother is laughing right now. When I was growing up I hated oatmeal. I still kind of do. But the less grainy versions are becoming more palatable. Also, a friend sent some Orange flavored Cranberries last month and I put about 12 of those in my oatmeal every morning and they really perk things up. So I have a bowl of oatmeal.
Robin always makes a pot of green tea. Good with honey.
Then there is usually bananas and peanut butter or a banana/mango/yogurt smoothie.
It’s a pretty good system that we have going. Working together, we can both prepare and consume breakfast in about twenty minutes and have four minutes at the end for finishing our tea.
Just thought I’d share all of that with the world.
