Last winter, I ate something that changed my life.
My husband and I took a little winter getaway to the mineral spa in Moose Jaw. We were sitting in our terry robes by the side of the pool, having a morning coffee in the Morningside Cafe, when a woman walked by with the most amazing breakfast parfait. Imagine a martini glass filled with layers of granola, yogurt and fresh fruit. When I got home to Saskatoon, I went out and bought martini glasses just so I could start every day this way.
I've been making it with thawed berries that I put away last fall, and I'm now waiting patiently for the strawberries and raspberries to ripen so I can make a Saskatchewan version of the Morningside breakfast parfait. I call it...
MY MORNING MARTINI
Take one martini glass (per person). Fill the very bottom with granola. Top it with fruit. Cover with yogurt. Repeat the layering. Top the whole thing off with the most gorgeous raspberry (or strawberry) you picked that morning. Eat with a spoon. (You can stir if you want, but shaking would be a mess!)
