When I lived in Germany, Muesli was a daily ritual. It was the way we started our breakfast and the tradition was seldom sidestepped.
It was a small bowl, probably half the size of this recipe, and was meant more as a way to “wet the appetite” than to actually fill your tummy.
Of course, then the REAL breakfast would follow. A breakfast of breads, rolls, and cheeses of all types. I loved it! Who wouldn’t? Cheese is awesome stuff and I do truly miss it. BUT….
The great thing is that I don’t have to completely give up the meals that stir my memories. This muesli takes me back to that time every time I eat it. It slows me down and makes me forget that I have a million things to do that day (which can be a good or a bad thing depending on how you look at it).
Funny how a smell or a flavor can whisk you away on a breeze and a memory, isn’t it?
