Breakfast with Laura Ashley

 

How do you like to start your day? Every morning, without fail, we gather around the table for breakfast, mix and match bowls, messy hair and sleepy conversation, it is one of our favourite times of the day together. During the week it is, more often than not, a rushed affair as we usually have something to get up and out of the house for, but at the weekend we take our time without the need to rush.

Breakfast here, this weekend was a real treat as we took our time, I pottered in the kitchen making our favourite granola recipe with our tiny boy sleeping in the sling whilst my husband and little boy played with lego. When the granola was in the oven I made a coffee and set the table with our new Laura Ashley china mugs and bowls. I love this mix and match set of blue and white china, it is an eclectic collection consisting of three different traditional designs each with a contemporary twist. Mixing and matching tableware is a great way of creating a relaxed look and to add a rustic touch I have also used the round Kubo woven baskets, great for holding bread or croissants. To keep us all cozy I added the herringbone striped throw to the backs of the chairs (you will always find a throw in arms reach here)

Oats and mixed nuts granola

A bowl of homemade granola is a great way to start any day, I have a simple recipe that can be made within about half an hour and tastes so delicious. I love making it as much as I love eating it, it gives me a real sense of warmth and comfort. I also love that I am providing my family with something homemade and wholesome to kick-start the day. Combined with fresh fruit and natural yoghurt it makes the perfect breakfast. Here’s how to make a tasty granola:

3 cups rolled oats

2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
125ml maple syrupMethod: Combine all the ingredients and pop in the oven on a medium heat for about 20
