Good Morning

There are some people who ‘can’t eat breakfast’, preferring to make do with a cup of coffee until mid morning. I am not one of them. I love my breakfast and can’t function until I have some food in my tummy. But how many of us make time for a proper breakfast? The reality is that breakfast more often than not a rushed bowl of cereal or a speedy slice of toast, but now and again, it is nice to take time over breakfast.

The weekend is the obvious time for this. A little effort the evening before means that come the morning you can indulge in some overnight oats, fresh bread or scones. Lay the table with a crisp linen cloth and drink from your favourite mug. Make a pot of tea or a cafetiere of coffee and stay in your PJ’s reading the papers having seconds if you so desire. As the old saying goes: ‘Eat breakfast like a king, eat lunch like a prince and eat dinner like a pauper’.

Here are a few of my must-haves for the weekend breakfast table along with some inspiration for those, like me, who awake from their slumber with rumbling bellies.

Author bio

Buttercup Days is a food & lifestyle blog that reflects a love for nostalgia, occasion, beautiful things and more. My name is Louise Gorrod and I love nothing more than to cook and feed people (including myself). If I had to label Buttercup Days, I would call it a food blog - it features far too much cake to suggest otherwise. It is, however, so much more than recipes; it's also a personal collection of thoughts, a chronicle of family life and occasions, in which food, so often, just happens to be part of it. Louise lives beside the seaside in East Sussex with her two young children and husband who together run Seen PR . You can follow her on Twitter @ButtercupDays. Read more posts by .
