Simple mornings are very important to me.
I have a ritual.
During the week, I pour the hot water over the Ecco coffee in the french press. Nick will press the coffee and have a cup before rushing off to work. I will pour a cup for myself while I make breakfast. My favorite breakfast is a poached egg salad.
Recently however, Nick has taken a job in San Francisco and a few day a week I am on my own. I make my own coffee, and with the mornings as dark and cold as they have been I'm hooked on oatmeal.
I like mine with dried blueberries and raisins, milk, and (a tiny bit) of maple syrup.
