I hope everyone has been able to catch a little bit of the royal wedding. I did not see it in live time but I have been watching highlights all day. I must say that it was the absolute perfect wedding! Kate and Will looked so elegant and happy. I love Kate's perma-smile! She is a gorgeous bride.
It’s great to see everyone so preoccupied with joy and love. The excitement makes me dream of my own fairy-tale wedding. It also makes me want to travel to London and get my own fascinator!
I present to you a breakfast fit for Royalty. I'm not kidding when I say that I would love serving this to Dutchess Katherine!
Quinoa with Coconut, Mango, and Strawberries
Adapted from here
1/2 cup uncooked quinoa
1 cup water
3 tbsp shredded coconut
2 tbsp coarsely chopped almonds
2 tbsp applesauce
1/4 cup chopped strawberries (about 2)
1/2-3/4 cup chopped mango (about 1/2 mango)
Maple syrup (optional)
Combine quinoa, water, and salt. Bring water to a boil and then cook for 15 minutes, until all the water is absorbed. Remove quinoa from heat and let cool slightly.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Mix together coconut, almonds, and cinnamon on a baking pan. Toast coconut for about three minutes until browned and fragnant, the almonds should also be lightly roasted.
Divide quinoa into two bowls. Stir one tablespoon of apple sauce into each. Top each equally with strawberries and mangos.
If desired add some maple syrup and/or soymilk on top.
Mine was when one of the clergy members did cartwheels down the Church aisle after the couple had left
Have a fabulous weekend!
