There are some people who 'can't eat breakfast', preferring to make do with a cup of coffee until mid morning. I am not one of them. I love my breakfast and can't function until I have some food in my tummy. But how many of us make time for a proper breakfast? The reality is that breakfast more often than not a rushed bowl of cereal or a speedy slice of toast, but now and again, it is nice to take time over breakfast. The weekend is the obvious time for this. A little effort the evening before means that come the morning you can indulge in some overnight oats, fresh bread or scones. Lay the table with a crisp linen cloth and drink from your favourite mug. Make a pot of tea or a cafetiere of coffee and stay in your PJ's reading the papers having seconds if you so desire. As the old saying goes: 'Eat breakfast like a king, eat lunch like a prince and eat dinner like a pauper'.
Here are a few of my must-haves for the weekend breakfast table along with some inspiration for those, like me, who awake from their slumber with rumbling bellies.
