It is snowing buckets here. This morning I wanted nothing more than to cuddle back up in my duvet and go to sleep until the snow melts. Of course, that wasn't exactly an option.
At least I had a yummy breakfast waiting for me. Mr. Emily had just made a big batch of muesli, and it did make my morning a little bit better. We don't eat muesli very often, but the Mr. had just gone to a whole foods store, saw the price of the muesli, and thought "I could make that at home for cheaper." So he did. And now I have a renewed love of the Swiss breakfast food. Be warned: this is not a meal that you can eat quickly. There is a lot of chewing involved. Or as Dr. Seuss would probably say, "If you like to chew, this breakfast is for you!"
Want to make your own? Here's the recipe:
Good Morning Muesli
4 cups rolled or flaked grains (we used a mix of oats, rye, barley and triticale)

1/2 cup chopped almonds
1 cup raisins
1/2 cup chopped dates
1/4 cup chopped apricots
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1/4 cup flax seeds
1. Mix together and store in an airtight container.
2. Serve cold topped with milk or yogurt and fresh fruit.
