Or not that easy if you have a toddler that wants to help you with everything. Maybe more like manic/messy/fun* like a Sunday morning? But we wouldn’t have it any other way.
Evie’s at that age now where it’s all ‘if Mummy does that then I want to do it too’ and her two favourite things at the moment are shouting ‘TOAST’ and a strong love of bears so it only seemed right that I got all Pinterest mumsy and made teddy bear toast with her. As you can see she’s an awful sous chef; all she did was eat the ingredients but she’s a laugh a minute helper.
Chocolate chops over here either had her hands in the Nutella jar or a mouthful of banana so it took us three times as long as it probably should have but we had a lovely morning together getting creative. As far as toasters go there’s not much you can say without sounding slightly crazy but I actually flippin love this Breville Flow Toaster. It does the usual toaster stuff yanoooo like toast the bread (#standardtoasterbehaviour) but it actually has a few little functions that really made me say ‘yaaaaasss Breville’. The main one being it has ‘lift & look’ so you can lift the lever up even part way through toasting without making the toast pop (because howwwww annoying is it when you do that and then press it down again only to forget about it and end up with charcoal for toast) just to check on the colour of your toast. GENIUS I TELL YOU. Because I’m one of those fussy people who loves a lightly golden not too dark kinda slice of toast. Not only that but it has a high lift function so you can retrieve your hot cross buns without shaking your fingers like Ali G (you all know what I’m talking about) because you burnt your fingers trying to delve into the toaster!
It’s just a really nice change from the ‘grab what you can and dash out the door’ type of breakfast I have before work to actually getting to spend some quality time together (mostly laughing at how much Nutella she ate) and get a little bit creative with what usually is a bog standard meal time.
Obviously with toast comes tea. Tea and toast. Toast and tea. They just go together. A simple but very British way of life. I don’t know about you but in our house a brew is the holy grail. Sad? Have a cup of tea. Tired? Have a cup of tea. Happy? Have a cup of tea. Need a chat? Have a cup of tea. You catch my drift . . We just love a cup of tea! We must drink at least 10 a day between us so as you can imagine our kettle is put through its paces.
Again there’s only so much you can say about a kettle without sounding like a car salesman, buuuuuut the Breville Flow Kettle ticks all the boxes for me. It really is all fancy shmancy and it illuminates whilst it’s boiling plus it’s super quiet! (I only really noticed how loud our other kettle was when we swapped it out for this one) Alongside the fact it is beautifully designed and I actually love it being sat on my worktop (unlike all the other things I try to hide in our cupboards) it has the capacity to boil 8 cups worth in one go and it’s also pretty speedy.
For appliances like these that you use every single day over and over again; you need them to work well. However the thing with the Breville Flow range is they do more than work well. They have added little touches to them which I’d never really thought of before but actually turn out to be so handy; like the lift & look on the toaster or the 360 base on the kettle to make light work of left or right handed use. So I suppose that’s how you know you’re an adult right? You really love a toaster and a kettle and can’t wait to tell your Mum about them! To check out the Breville Flow range click here.
