14 Days of Zespri – Day 8

It’s day eight of the Zezpri kiwifruit challenge and today we’re being challenged to share our breakfast with you. I’ve never been able to stomach porridge, since I was a child I’ve always chosen muesli or granola over Pronutro or oats. My preferred way to eat it is with some plain yoghurt and honey. If there is any fresh fruit available that would be chopped up and added to the mix.

These days I seem to skip breakfast more often than not and a cup of coffee at the office usually lands up being the first thing that passes my lips in the morning. Taking a little time to prepare a quick breakfast makes such a big difference to the rest of my day.

Layering the kiwifruit, granola and yoghurt in a glass and calling it a parfait just makes it a little more special and really doesn’t take much more time than dumping it all into a bowl. I really need to make an effort and sacrifice ten minutes of warm bed time to make sure I’m starting my day off right.

14 Days of Zespri – Day 7

I missed two days of posting for the Zespri Daily Scoop of Amazing challenge. But I’m back with a special treat in the form of a stack of kiwifruit pancakes.

Kiwifruit Pancake Stack
Yesterday was a full day of cookieswapping and evening at the Madame Zingara Theatre of Dreams, my first visit and an amazing night out. So today I just wanted to stay in and take it easy. These American style pancakes are a great thing to make for a breakfast at home. I took it so easy that we actually ate them for lunch. A perfectly acceptable Sunday lunch don’t you think?

I made the pancakes using this recipe on Instructables. I halved the recipe as I was only cooking for two people and added pieces of kiwifruit before flipping them. I served them with maple flavoured syrup and the leftover bits of ┬ákiwifruit that didn’t make it into the pancakes. You could of course serve them with honey, real maple syrup or just plain if you prefer.
