SOMETIMES I’M A DREAMER
Somedays I imagine waking up in the middle of a farm, where the smell of brewing honey is thick and permeating, filling the air in the most glorious ways possible, and I can’t help but applaud. I hear the sound of fresh coffee beans being ground, one by one, accentuated by fragrant twirls of rich coffee essence floating lazily in the crisp morning air.
I breathe in the thick, hazy aroma of oats bubbling and boiling gently in the metal pot, and imagine what it would be like to walk barefeet on the hardwood floors, warm from the sunlight streaming through the large white windows. I see the rustic wooden table, whose surface was cut out of a single amazonian tree, adorned with irregular cream-colored chairs with tied-on cushions, worn out from age and use.
I sit down on one of them, the one nearest the window, where the sunbeam grazes my arm, and I take a generous bite of one of those freshly-baked muffins – still warm from the heat of the oven, filled with chopped walnuts, textured oats and perfumed by the faint but distinct taste of wild honey.
HONEY OAT WALNUT
Muffins which tastes of fresh honey, brown and sweet, intertwined with oats and roughly-chopped walnuts, rich and nutty.
Muffins that remind me of being on a farm, with the tastes of nature lingering in my mouth, and the aromas of fresh grass and morning dew tempting my nostrils.
Something simple to make, and even easier to eat, fuss-free yet tasty.
These are the honey oat walnut muffins I’ve dreamt about…
Each bite oozing with nutritious goodness..
