I have never been big on breakfast but when i recently started taking care of my health i decided to make an effort with breakfast especially since it is considered the most important meal of the day.
Since I work full-time I usually have chia seeds pudding which i prepare the night before , refrigerate and grab on my way out in the morning and have it once I am at work (if you follow me on instagram you’ve seen pics of it). However as much as I enjoy it during the weekends i like to experiment with other options that my daughters and I can enjoy.
My daughters love waffles so i thought of trying out oatmeal waffles i found this recipe on Taste of Home and i must say i am hooked!
I have also shared pictures of my waffles on instagram and many of you have asked for me to share the recipe so here it is.
Since it is only the three of us s (my daughters and I) I halve the ingredients and end up with 4 pancakes Two for me and 1 for each of them hehe
3/4 cup flour
1/2 cup quick oats (i grind them to form a powder)
1 1/2 tsp backing powder
pinch of salt & pinch of cinnamon
3/4 cup milk
1 tbsp brown sugar
3 tbsp melted butter
I follow the directions as stated in the recipe.
Once cooked i have mine with bananas, strawberries, sprinkled with honey and chia seeds.
I highly recommend you try it, it is delicious. My daughters have theirs with nutella on the condition and they have some fruit too so Hadeel goes for strawberry and Dania bananas and i have both LOL!
Let me know what you think of them if you end up trying them and also do share what you have for breakfast.
So its been a month since i’ve moved to my new house and what a wonderful feeling to have a place to call my own (alhamdulilah).
I still have lots of boxes to unpack, get curtains put up, paint the walls, buy furniture etc basically i am living in a mess but as mummy says ” yes you are living in a mess but its your own mess” hehe
It goes without saying that i have a dedicated a room to sew in, mostly known as a sewing room to me its my “happy room” just brings me so just joy.
I havent done much with it either only got the essential set up in order for me to create in. I have all these gorgeous fabric just staring at me and I’ve decided its time to create things with them and so that everyone can enjoy them basically share the love.
Currently on my sewing table are handbag organisers which i am busy making since they seem to be on demand.However i also plan on sewing my other products which i will be selling but this time not online or at a craft fair but in a shop!! (now don’t get too excited) not opening my shop (yet).
But a shop that i have come to love and the owner has agreed to carry my products. I am super excited and would love to reveal it all now but patience is a virtue hehe so you will just have to wait for the announcement on the blog.
All i can say though is that it will be happening before the end of March. Make sure you subscribe to the blog so you don’t miss a thing ( orange button at the top left side of this page, click on the orange button to receive blog updates on your email) or follow me on Google+
