Weekend breakfasts are my sanity saviours. During the week I am an engergizer battery constantly on the go and always in a rush. It is an absolute treat to sit peacefully by the window with a cup of tea and a bowl of something beautiful. I watch the sky change colours and listen to the birds sing their songs. I reflect on the week that has past and hope for the best in the next.

It is extraordinary how a gorgeous breakfast can set the tone for the day. If only I had the discipline to organise myself every morning for breakfast, then perhaps everyday would be wonderful.

Dried Strawberries with Honey and Yogurt
Serves one
¼ cup traditional rolled oats
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup plain greek yogurt
2 tablespoons honey
¼ cup dried strawberries or your favourite dried fruit

Toast the rolled oats in a hot frying pan until they are golden. Sprinkle cinnamon over the oats. Set aside to cool. Place the greek yogurt in a bowl and sprinkle with the cooled oats. Add the dried strawberries and drizzle the honey over the top. Turn off the tv, radio, telephone, internet. Lock the door, open the window, pull up a seat and enjoy the morning.

    Hi Penny. I bought the dried strawberries from a persian grocery store near where I live. but you can also purchase them and lots of other delicious stuff from pariya.com The great thing is that they are made in Sydney. So your food miles aren’t from all around the world.

    I always wake up two hours earlier so I can enjoy my breakfast relaxing myself…even at 5 if I need to…I cannot have breakfast in a rush, I prefer don’t have it at all…
    I love that you used dried strawberries, they are my favorite…with dried cherries… ^_^

    I LOVE yogurt and honey together – especially if its thick ‘Greek’ yogurt…yum! And strawberries and yogurt are great together. Those strawberries look fresh – that’s a beautiful shot!

    Oooh! I must say, I love the way you do your photography. 😀 I like dried strawberries in oatmeal too; other times it’s dried blueberries and cranberries.

    If I’ve got a bunch of dried strawberries I use them for scones and salads as well.
