Breakfast of champions

When I first had the idea of starting up Cow Crumbs and sharing all of my delicious goodies, I was living in what some would call a hobbit village. My home or cottage as I liked to call it was from the 1600 hundreds and it just oozed character. From the skeleton key that would open the front door to the wooden beams from Westminster abbey, this humble abode was not your average cookie cutter suburban home. I was starting a new life in my little village, just me and the milk man.

At first yes I felt a little bit like a fish out of water. Kind of like one of those big city fish thrown into a little pond. I remember the first time I did my laundry; I opened up the washing machine and thought, how am I going to get all of these clothes into something so tiny. Apparently the English don’t believe in the bigger is better motto.

This fun little adventure was then followed by a where is the dryer game, because in England fresh air and the heating vents around your house seem to do the trick just fine???

Nothing like hanging your underwear out in the hallway to dry and then have guests pop over. Welcome to my home and these are my delicates.

But for me, coming from a full time hectic life with a full on crazy job, Hungarian babysitter extraordinaire at your service (we’ll save that story for another post) to living in a quiet little village that if you blink you’d miss it was… well it was a bit of a culture shock.

Two pubs, a post office and whole lot of rain wasn’t exactly normal for me. It took a bit of adjusting but in time I actually fell in love with my English way of life

Fast forward and in no time flat I found myself back amongst the hustle and bustle and I felt as though I sort of just picked up from where I left off… Only my appetite or internal body clock was a little bit lost. I would wake up in the morning only my stomach was on UK time.

And what’s better for lunch than a sandwich; there’s something about it that’s just comforting. The crunch of the crisp lettuce, all the tasty toppings. My sandwiches are not your average affair, by the time I’m done it’s more like a work of art.

But the true pièce de résistance for me is the bread. Oh how I love this bread. I actually got excited going to bed knowing that in the morning this bread would be waiting for me.

Organic Works bakery has mastered the art of healthy, delicious and wow all into one loaf. The vegan chia seed buckwheat is my FAVE. Every morning my family would be eating cereal or toast, you know breakfast options, and I would be getting ready to sit down and eat my giant turkey sandwich.

To each there own.

Organic Works also do a mean quinoa and honey bread and don’t even get me started on the baked goods. Just do yourself a solid and go out and get a loaf, and some of the cookies, oh and the brownies, the banana bread too. Just look for the label and buy everything the stores has in stock, this stuff is like gluten free gold.

Breakfast of champions.
