Warm Orange Millet with Cinnamon and Chopped Date…served with cold soy yoghurt and soy milk.
There is soy milk buried underneath the warm bowl of millet (it quickly infused with the cinnamon and orange flavours, delicious all mixed up together..)
And before I share my quick and easy recipe for this delicious alternative breakfast…
Fun Facts Friday!
I always try and keep a few of my toppings, whether on overnight oats, baked oats, salad or dinner, for the last few bites. It sometimes involves some careful manoeuvring of what ever is bedded underneath, especially when I’m trying save some of my soy yoghurt topping like this morning with millet bowl.
I have 5 whole days off from work after today and what I’m most looking forward to…aside from have at least an extra hour or two in bed, is cooking of course and watching some morning TV! I can’t remember the last time I gave the TV my full attention, an hour of guilt free watching has never been more greatly anticipated!
I freak out if my 100g bar of Lindt 85% Dark Chocolate gets broken in transit. I like having my two squares at night and a bar broken in to smithereens, besides not having the same appeal, makes having two full even squares very difficult.
Speaking of chocolate, I store my chocolate in the little freeze box compartment of my fridge. I like my chocolate crisp and freezing cold.
My full name is Michelle Elaine Stephanie Hunt…I choose Stephanie for my Confirmation, but I tell everyone its Michelle Elaine Louise Hunt as in hindsight that’s what I should have chosen!
When I eat an apple I eat the whole thing….core, seeds and all. It’s a bit of family thing! It means you don’t need to look for a bin and not eating it just feels like a waste. I’m not sure if it’s bad for you, it hasn’t done me any harm…that I know of!
That’s enough for one Friday!
Do you have any fun random facts to share or any of the above that you can relate to?
