Bircher Beginnings

Well, we have to start somewhere and breakfast seems like the perfect place.

This past week I've succumbed to the wonderful-ness that is bircher muesli - I've eaten it every day, and cannot wait until tomorrow morning for my next fix. My recipe of choice comes from A Whisk and a Spoon.

We had had a shortage of apples this week (ie none), so the muesli was without. I tried to compensate by using a little extra toasted almonds to make up for the texture that the apple would have brought. I also added the cinnamon at the same time as the apple juice. This was mainly out of laziness, but I also thought that the cinnamon would be better absorbed into the muesli by adding it earlier. Despite my modifications, it still tasted delicious!

This blog has a few reasons for coming to life - it is something that I have been thinking about for quite sometime, but have never been brave enough to enter the world of food-blogging. After all, who wants to read about what I'm eating?!

Another reason is that I am hoping to use it to chronicle a very special project I'm about to start on. It's something that's incredibly dear to my heart, I just hope that I can do it the justice that it deserves.

Only time will tell.
