Light healthy breakfast over Christmas relaxation time!
No need to ask Santa !!!
A hot lungo espresso ,orange homemade cookies,
and a delicious fresh cut orange instead of orange juice.
In the middle of winter this fresh fruit is a real treat with
many benefits, a delicacy, a powerfood, an opulent classic one.
Here is my daily sight once the shutters are opened,
on rainy days or frosted sunny ones, ripe tangerines,
oranges and lemons are hanging on the tree branches
like shiny baubles and could be my Christmas trees!
We have only few of them in the city garden but
a real grove around the country house.
Even without Christmas lights, they look so beautiful!
A multi-use fruit.
“Apfel Strudel” always served with an orange slice!
English carrot cake with caramelized orange slices
and a lot of zest added into the mixture.
The best time to attempt an exquisite orange marmalade,
not only to spread on bread but also like a topping for tarts,
yogurt , pancakes etc.
And of course dried oranges are so decorative.
I use them for wrapping gifts and not only.
In glasses for a particular table setting.
A favorite one!
Health, strength, happiness to each of you!
Enjoy Christmas preparations and take care!
