Porridge and Quince and Coffee

April 16, 2014

I love how the mornings are brighter in April. And while it is undeniably cold, being woken by the sun rather than my phone alarm is a treat. Every time I beat the beat it feels like a victory, the natural world championing over the modern. And I’ll smile to myself as I search for my socks.

I love how when pouring our coffee, Ben leaves a small portion in the jug for me to savour after I’ve finished my never quite full enough first mug.

I love how the quince I poached last week sit ever so splendidly atop my bowl of porridge, their soft flesh perfectly scoop-able. The flavours of oats and quince marry so well. It’s wholesome comfort, with toasted nuts and seeds and an extra glug of milk.

Happy Wednesday, friends. And do tell, what did you have for breakfast today?

    Hello Heidi – I have just found your little space here in blogland, and must say it’s lovely. Your quince and porridge looks like breakfast heaven to me. My husband poached me an egg this morning, I made the coffee.

    Lovely as always 🙂 I’ll have to look out for quinces at the market – they are gorgeous! This morning I had an italian sausage, a fried egg and sauteed kale (using up leftovers before I go away to a festival for Easter!) xx

    Autumn mornings are the best! In fact, Autumn is the most beautiful season, IMHO – crisp mornings, leaves changing colour AND it’s apple season – “season of mists and mellow fruitfulness” (according to Keats) 🙂 Your quince looks beautiful – if anything says “autumn” it’s quince and fresh nuts!
    My Wednesday breakfast was a cafe breakfast (holidays!!) – zucchini and corn fritters with a side of smoked salmon and avocado + a cappuccino.

      “season of mists and mellow fruitfulness” – oh, yes. I so agree, it’s just the loveliest season. Thank you for your words! x

    I agree. There is something utterly perfect about that little coffee top-up. And socks, always socks. I live and breathe for socks. xo

      You do love your socks 🙂 x
