Lazy Saturday

MrsM
Do you like my new green nail polish?

MasterM
It looks like orc toe nails

MrsM
Right.
So that's a no, then?

Can you see the Breakfast cake?
We have decided that we like this idea
for lazy weekend breakfasts.
They must be plain,virtuous cakes.
This one is a lemon cake packed with vitamins
and made with organic probiotic yogurt
so I think we can permit a light icing.

  2. Oh, goodness it looks lovely..but where are the chia seeds, the hemp seeds, and the nutritional yeast?

  3. One is ALWAYS entitled - no indeed OBLIGED to have nail polish that breaks the rules... otherwise seriously... what's the point? :-)

  4. I think two slices are in order, so you can be extra virtuous.

  5. Children - they never fail to have an opinion do they?
    I always thought breakfast was the best meal of the day.

  6. Cake is practically the only breakfast I ever feel like eating.

  7. cake is a perfectly balanced breakfast! it has all the same ingredients as egg on toast followed by a slice of toast with lemon curd. nothing unusual with that breakfast, therefore yours is perfect too. except that I am a bit jealous.....

  10. Two things ...
    No.1 There is nothing wrong with green toe nail varnish - it is a perfectly acceptable colour.
    No.2 Cake or CHOC ICE for breakfast! Both perfectly acceptable ~ that is what comes of running a Guide Unit.
    Have a LOVELY day and thank you for sharing.

  11. Some confusion til I realized I was thinking of Ents.

    I blame my muddled thinking on a sad lack of cake.

  13. Oh Yummy I REALLY like the sound of breakfast cake. I think you aught to patent the idea before it goes global.

    I think green nail polish makes a statement, rather like cake at breakfast, you are in an adventurous phase obviously.

  15. Dull women never make history! Have you tried a really dark navy blue? Goes great with red, orange and pink clothing.
    I'm a conservative 50 year old accountant and wearing a dark glimmery brown on my fingers! College boy son said they looked nice :) I would like to dive them into some chocolate breakfast cake!

  16. I'll make a note to remove my green varnish (currently wearing it ooops) when meeting MasterN. Wouldn't want him to think we're ALL orcs ...
    I see cake for breakfast is quite the novelty for you all ... we eat it all the time (not creamy ones though), when I bake that is. How weird is it that we have such different habits.
    Enjoy your cake whenever.

  17. Reminds me of a lemon poppy seed bread I used to make. Better unearth that recipe and give it a try soon!
