FaceTime is amazing right? I think so. It brings coffee with a friend who's 5000 miles away to life. "6 Months and counting!" we both cry and squeal and make fools of ourself in our proclaimed love for each other... as an outsider it's probably all a bit too "little women" for reality, but as they say - when you meet "the one" you just know... Having a foodie-girlfriend soul mate basically rocks on all levels.
Is it weird that by ritual we both are in our pajamas (me because I'm coming home in London - Mystical because its a lazy Sunday in San Francisco) with a hot cup of coffee and usually in the kitchen. half way through the call one of us starts cooking (me dinner or her brunch) sometimes both. It's how we roll.
Last week as we discussed the logistics of where I would sleep Mystical started to make breakfast.
she yelled over her blender how she dreams every day of bunk beds and snugs, early morning runs and cross fit, cooked breakfasts and hot coffee. "6 Months and counting!" we both squealed.
Basically we are going to make the most amazing roommates ever. It's going to be better than Friends, New Girl and Couplings combined. I'm going to stop there; because in actual life I did. the whole time we had been gassing on about this idicllic life we are both building up Mystical had been grinding and juicing and mixing and I couldn't figure out for the life of me what she was making.
"Oh, this is no joke. this is life changing. I'm about to change your life just by telling you about this"
suspense built thankyouverymuch.
"Magical Breakfast Cream. It's a Mireille recipe. you know, the French Women Don't Get Fat?"
"no explanation needed. It's Magical Breakfast Cream. Make some and you'll understand"
So I did. And I do. And now you should too.
Magical Breakfast Cream
120g Greek Yogurt
1tsp Walnut oil
1tbsp ground mixed nuts (anything on hand works! I used Walnuts, Almonds and Pecans)
2tbsp finely ground oatmeal
2 small clementines juiced and pulp saved.
mix the yogurt, oil and the honey together. mix in the ground nuts and then sprinkle the oats on the top. drizzle the juice and pulp over the oats and let sit for a couple of seconds before mixing in (this will help break down the oats for easy digestion).
