Impromptu Breakfasting

Cooking Adventure: Breakfast Yogurt Parfait
Source: Me
The Bellydance Soundtrack: First Train Home by Imogen Heap
Prep Time: 2 minutes

At the moment I'm in a kind of food coma after eating my very delicious parfait. I'm taking the time to enjoy my morning lull before finally showering up, getting dressed, and packing for my weekend jaunt home. My grandma just had her second surgery to take care of colon cancer that reared its ugly head, so I'm visiting her to make sure, as she puts it, all her parts are in order.

Imogen Heap has some songs that are not only good travel music, but perfect for veil pieces. I was lucky enough to see a solo veil performance to her song, "Have You Got It In You?", a few years ago, and it was, to say the least, breathtaking.

For those of you scrolling down and saying, "Yes, yes. Get to the food part already!", here it is:

1-1.5 cups vanilla yogurt
A hard granola (I used Oatmeal Crisp. Special K type stuff will not work. It gets really soggy really quickly.)
1 Tbsp. Raisins
1 Tbsp. Chopped walnuts
3 pinches Cinnamon
1 pinch Nutmeg

1. Put the yogurt in the bottom of a wine glass/small bowl.
2. Fill with just enough granola to cover, & sprinkle with raisins & walnuts.
3. Top with cinnamon and nutmeg.

For Next Time: I wouldn't change a thing for mine. It was perfect. Although if you're feeling adventurous - and I hope you are - you can always substitute/add in almonds, dried cranberries, honey, blueberries, etc.
