Weetbix (wheat biscuits) would have to be New Zealand’s most iconic breakfast cereal. There would not be many homes around that don’t have a packet in the cupboard.
I grew up eating the Classic Breakfast – two Weetbix with milk and brown sugar. I don’t eat it very often now, but the makings are always waiting in the pantry just in case.
What I do like, for a change from muesli, is to have Weetbix with some stewed apple or rhubarb on top (instead of the sugar). I cooked up some rhubarb yesterday for breakfast this morning – and then ate it before I remembered to take a photo!!
I once met a lady who ate her Weetbix with a smidgen of boiling water – just enough to soften it – and nothing else. My mother sometimes enjoyed hers sliced in half and spread with butter and Vegemite.
So it seems there are many ways to enjoy our classic Kiwi breakfast food.
On a different note, I waited and watched to see our full moon rise the other night but the clouds would not give way. However, the silvery edges to the clouds were pretty in themselves, so I still went to bed happy.
The photo is little blurry (well, maybe, very blurry) as my phone is not keen on night-time photos, but it gives you the idea.
We have a lovely summer day today – blue skies, sunshine, little wind – and expecting high temperatures again this coming week. The hanging baskets are going to need more watering if they are to keep looking great.
Enjoy your weekend 😊
