Anyone who knows me, knows that I love breakfast. I love breakfast on busy weekday mornings and refuse to understand people who skip breakfast. Maybe that’s because I’ve always had breakfast in the mornings. When I was a kid my mum made a big pot of oatmeal every single morning, and no one was allowed to leave the table before finishing the whole big bowl.
But more than I love busy weekday breakfast, I love slow weekend morning breakfasts. I’m very lucky to have people in my life who share this love with me. Back in Helsinki regular breakfast meetings with my friends used to be a normal thing. Now looking back, I’m kind of missing the student life when it was possible to enjoy a Sunday morning any day of the week. Now when I’m living with my boyfriend the breakfasts are very often quite un-Instagrammable hash browns and eggs on toast. But man, I just love hash browns and the combination of an avocado and an egg.
Because I’m a master of yummy, and very Instagrammable breakfasts, I’ve started my little hobby again. A week ago I made very delicious sweet quinoa pancakes. They are packed with protein and good carbs, and they were so good and fluffy – scroll down to find the recipe! Besides pancakes and avocado toasts, I love poached eggs with inappropriate amount of hollandaise sauce on toast. And someday I will absolutely nail poached eggs.
To make weekends and breakfast moments a bit more luxurious, sometimes it is nice to have someone else prepare that Instagrammable breakfast for you. Luckily, Sydney is full of amazing cafes, and there are new ones popping up every week. But must say that after three visit to Celsius Coffee Co in Kirribilli, it’s still my number one.
