Lazy Thursday Morning

With my classes starting again in a week or two I opted for a lazy morning to celebrate my ‘still having time to do things slowly’ .

No sleeping in for an early bird with my biorhythm though, I enjoyed a nice breakfast and I’m planning to snuggled onto the couch with a blanket, a cup of tea and a book (Tracy Chevalier’s ‘Girl with a Pearl Earring’, it’s good, go read it!) after I finish this post.

Breakfast cooked on the stove, relaxed cooking and comfort food

I have a confession to make about this breakfast though… until an hour ago, I’ve never (never ever) had pumpkin oats (please don’t shoot me now ;)). Pumpkin just isn’t that big in Belgium, we don’t even have canned pumpkin in most of our stores so I had to use pumpkin my mum keeps in the freezer to make pumpkin soup. Posts on pumpkin oats these last couple of days made me realize I’m obviously missing out on something and I’m so glad I tried it!

‘Pumpkin Walnut Oats’

  • half a cup of oats
  • a cup of soy milk
  • half a cup of pumpkin
  • cinnamon and a pinch of salt
  • chopped walnuts and 1 teaspoon of brown sugar for topping
You can put everything (except your toppings) in a casserole and cook it on the stove (don’t put your fire to high, you want it to simmer and enjoy the relaxing effects of stove cooking) or put it in the microwave for about 2 minutes without the pumpkin, add your pumpkin and a bit more milk after those 2 minutes and put it back in the microwave for another 2 minutes. Top with the sugar and the nuts when it’s done and enjoy!!


Yesterday, I baked a batch of healthified muffins (recipe will follow) and I haven’t tried them yet so they would make a perfect mid-morning snack.
My mum has to work till 2, so no lunch for this gal till then and I can’t go without food for 6 whole hours!

Planned mid-morning snack

I’ll keep you posted about those muffins, enjoy your day,
Love, M.
