I’m just me. I don’t have an Aunt Betty, so I can’t present you with her famous cranberry cobbler…neither do I have an Uncle Bert or Joe, to wow you with his beer-basted, flame grilled whole turkey, ready in just under X hours! Welcome to my world…and my thoughts for Thanksgiving.
My plan is to share some of my favourite quick and easy recipes, especially for large crowds! See, I’m an MOT (Mother of three) so even a reguar meal at home is like a bash. Plus I work full-time, so I love snap, snap, on the table-type dishes.
Let’s start with Brekkie….for I like a good one. Have you ever wanted silk or cashmere on your morning table? If your answer is yes, then you’ve come to the right address. Swiss Bircher Muesli. One man – Dr Maximilian Oskar Bircher-Benner (1867-1939),one vision – organic/wholefoods = birth of a great revolution! I love it. How do I count three ways? One – for its simplicity to prepare; Two – for its flexibility to eat; and Three – tastes damn good! Forget that the Swiss have it for dinner:-). A bit like the Dutch who never have pancakes for breakfast!
Make your own cereal – gluten-rich or gluten-free – and surely you don’t need 10 reasons why you should make your own cereal (other than its dead easy, cheaper, tastes better, you can put what you like – 100 pecans and 2 raisins, you can leave out what you don’t want, you never run out…if you’re smart, no-added sugar, no-added salt and goes perfectly in homemade Swiss Bircher. And for Granolas)
If the mixture is too thick,….thin it with some milk or apple juice. If it is not too thick…enjoy it.The beauty of this recipe
