This morning I wanted a simple breakfast, something that didn’t take long to make but could take a long time to savor if I was so inclined. I was in a lot of pain and didn’t want to fuss with a skillet or heavy jug of milk. So I settled on my favorite: Greek Yogurt with thinly sliced Kumquats, Macadamias, unsweetened coconut flakes and a generous sprinkling of Cardamom.
I took this photo a couple years ago but this morning’s bowl of yogurt looked every bit as sublime.

We get our cardamom from Penzeys Spices. Even though ground cardamom is very strong in flavor, I still sprinkle it over yogurt generously; it compliments the kumquats and the creaminess of Greek Yogurt beautifully.
The coconut is from King Arthur Flour. I disliked coconut until I discovered these big beautiful unsweetened flakes from King Arthur. They are delicious! I also use them to top Coconut Cupcakes (shown in the Dessert Buffet I did last year) and Coconut Cream Pies.
Macadamias add the perfect salty buttery crunch.
It’s impossible to eat a bowl with so much sunshine in it without getting cheered.
