Rhubarb, rhubarb

The other day I bought a bunch of rhubarb – it was big and a deep crimson colour with contrasting bright green leaves andlooked so fresh I wanted to eat it immediately . I stewed it with some sugar and now have a huge bowlful in the fridge from which I take helpings of to accompany my porridge.

I use real oats (as opposed to the instant variety) and cook them with some dessicated coconut and water (Just 2 mins in the microwave!!).   Each morning I pack my oats and coconut mixture and rhubarb and strawberries into little containers to take to work.  I also pack whatever leftovers there are for lunch.  Today it was leek and pumpkin risotto.


I generally eat my breakfast sometime between 9 and 10.  Today I got busy.  And then I got hungry.  At 10 o’clock I was ready to eat my lunch.  Porridge wasn’t going to cut it.  I waited till after 11 and heated up my risotto.


Now its after 2pm and I’m thinking about my porridge and rhubarb.  I’m having a topsy kind of a day.




About taniajl

My life revolves around food and wine - what else is there? I think about food all the time, mainly what I would like to eat/cook at the end of the day. My greatest joy is coming home at the end of the day, pouring a glass of wine and starting to cook. When I go away on holidays and have to eat out 3 times a day, I get a bit stir crazy. Thinking about food, shopping for food and preparing food is as important as eating food. And without the former, life is just not the same. Oh, I also love talking about food.

    Early breakfast morphs into late dessert. All good!

    My favourite meal is brinner. Poached eggs, spinach topped with garlic butter, lightly tossed mushrooms with black pepper and some ‘real’ toasted bread. I like it at 8pm with a pot of tea and a good DVD. I want some of that strawberry and rhubarb on the side please.
    Now that’s a late late breaky!
