Toast, Tea and Twitter

November 29, 2010

What is it about Sunday mornings that makes them so blissful? Saturdays harness a more hectic vibe, often spent meeting friends or family, attending parties or doing some other energetic activity. Yet come Sunday morning I find myself splendidly tranquil, perfectly content to curl up on my couch with a pot of tea with the morning papers sprawled around me. I can leisurely peruse and sip for hours.

Toast is the perfect accompaniment to tea and papers. This past Sunday morning involved Dench wholegrain sourdough toast with natural peanut butter and cherry jam. We added a fruit salad and fresh watermelon juice and I moved from contented, past happy and into elation.

p.s. I now have a twitter account. Ben and some friends have said that I should get one. So now I have one. I’m not quite sure what to do with it, but I’ll figure it out soon. Please follow me if you have a twitter! Is that how it works?! Twitter link here.

    I am so, so with you on this one. Quiet, peaceful, peanut butter Sunday morning are just the loveliest 🙂

    Calm, laidback Sunday mornings are great. Especially if accompanied with simple, delicious breakfasts like this.

  • Lisa (bakebikeblog) November 30, 2010 at 7:10 am

    Sounds like a perfect morning to me 🙂

  • Leah November 30, 2010 at 8:41 am

    This is my perfect sunday morning breakfast. Tea, toast, fruit and juice! Heavenly.

    I have a twitter account too.. I think, at least a friend set one up for me about two years ago but I've never used it myself! I don't really understand it to be honest!
    Tea is the perfect remedy for everything isn't it? I try to finish every day with a good book and a cup of herbal tea in bed… so comforting!
    That toast looks so delicious with all those grains!

    I got onto twitter mainly because my boyfriend was on it and he and his friends used it as a bit of an alternative chatroom, I ended up constantly on stalking them and seeing what they would be chatting about and ended up making an account to join in the conversation. From there, it's ended up being an invaluable tool to keep up with all the food bloggers posts! 🙂 Just added you! I'm squeewubs. 😀

    I do enjoy my sunday mornings as well, I always seem to have activities on the Saturday and Sunday's are for Brad and I to lay in bed all morning! 🙂

    Hannah – cheers to peaceful, peanut butter days 🙂

    Xiaolu – indeed 🙂

    Lisa – yes!!

    Leah – perfection, isn't it!?

    Laura – the bread is so delicious!! Look for it, it's around Melbourne. Tea in bed with a book sounds divine.

    Ashley – brilliant, thanks for the add 😉 lazy days in bed are the best.

    I just signed up for Twitter myself, and I do't really understand it yet either. But I'll follow you 🙂

  • Indie.Tea December 1, 2010 at 4:47 am

    Hmmm, sorry I couldn't follow you, Twitter is down right now apparently.

  • Kath December 1, 2010 at 7:02 am

    Slow Sunday mornings are the best!! And lovely teacups you have!

  • Anna Johnston December 1, 2010 at 7:25 am

    Yep,gotta agree with you Heidi, Sunday mornings are the best, the world feels quieter & its the one morning of the week where (it feels…, often not the case of course) that no one expects too much out of each other.
    I've added you to my Twitter as well…,(I'm AnnaJ31) – it does seem to be the platform where the food bloggers do their chatting but I only pop on there a few times a week, I'm more of a facebook gal 🙂

  • Heidi December 1, 2010 at 8:03 am

    Boredom Abounds – thank you! I'll follow you too.

    Michelle – yes it was so delicious, really yummy. A nice change from my usual raspberry.

    Clairey – you're welcome, lovely. Thanks for your post! I can imagine that my casual, lazy reading days are numbered 🙂

    Anne – thank you and yay for twitter!

    Indie.Tea – I think I have pretty much figured it out now. And it is terribly addictive. I love it 🙂

    Kath – thank you! This tea cup was a present for my 21st. I have recently fallen back in love with it. It makes drinking tea that much more special.

    Anna – fabulous! I feel like there was this whole world I never knew about 🙂

  • The InTolerant Chef December 1, 2010 at 10:25 pm

    I'm sorry to say I don't do twitter or facebook. I just don't know how. Maybe I'll get my pre teen to teach me!

  • Hannah December 5, 2010 at 12:44 pm

    YUM! I've just come back from the farmers markets with some lovely Quinoa and Soya sourdough which I'll have with some raspberry jam…i totally agree, Sunday mornings are perfect!
