Lulu’s Daddy requested a little breakfast in bed on his day, so I made some muffins in the morning so they would be nice and warm. These are blueberry muffins made with kamut flour and maple syrup. I’m always trying to substitute white carbs and refined sugar with healthier options and you know what? They taste better. They do. I love kamut flour especially because it is full of nutrients where all-purpose flour is vastly lacking. And it’s high in protein believe it or not! And fiber. And it tastes so good. And it is so lovely to work with. There’s something really special about this stuff, man. Kamut. Yes.
Must have with a latte! I’ve been in latte heaven ever since we got this little milk frother contraption by Bodum. But today I discovered that it makes even better ICED lattes! Now I am in iced latte heaven. Which is pretty great considering it’s in the high thirties over here. Now all i need is an espresso machine, because you know, those little stovetop coffee makers are good and all, but they just don’t quite hit the mark. I didn’t actually think about this until we went back to Montreal after not having been there in a long time, and had such a good latte. SUCH A GOOD LATTE. And i can’t find one like it in our neighbourhood. So yes, an espresso machine would be nice…. Lulu’s Daddy enjoyed his little continental breakfast tray, by the way. And Lulu and I got him a book about Daddy and Lulu, so they read it together in bed with latte and warm buttered muffins and it was really a sweet sight. Talk about warming a Mama’s heart.
I also made Lulu a whole bunch new play dough that morning in different colours. So while I was preparing the Daddy’s Day breakfast tray, Lulu got to work on her own feast.
Mmmm pizza on a spinach crust!
That’s some fancy pizza slicing, Lulu! I’m glad you still had room for the muffins! It was nice to get to spend the day all together as a family. Happy Daddy’s Day!
