Valentine Breakfast



Pin It

This is just a little exercise for a sweeter than sweets Valentine's Day breakfast. Caution: do not try this at home, it might send your glycemia through the roof :)) Start with the pomegranate in order to jump start your digestion for the day. Continue with whole grain bread and plenty of acacia honey. Add sweet kisses and do NOT eat the flowers.




My romantic breakfast is a great solution for all sorts of lovers, especially for those who stayed indoors under the blankets and forgot to go shopping for groceries (like I did...). Just open the fridge and the cupboards and see what you can put on the table. Anything will do, really, as long as as it is sweet and intoxicating. 





The key to a happy Valentine's Day romantic breakfast is presentation, of course. You could have milk and cookies, sweet pasta salad, pastry hors d'oeuvre or anything, as long as it looks like a romantic painting. Any flowers will do, as long as they are fresh and lovely. A couple of mismatched vases add playfulness to the table. If they happen to match the tableware, it's even better. And for a full effect, serve it in bed and share a single spoon :)


Yoohoo! The impromptu Valentine breakfast was featured at Smart School House and Homework, thanks a million for the support!

    1. Well, I think that making a meal with what I find in the fridge is the story of my life, too ;) But I say that you need to learn how to enjoy what you've got available and never worry ;)
      Hakuna Matata!
