Taste&Create: Bircher Meusli

Taste & Create is a blog event that pairs food bloggers together to make a dish from each other's blog.  This is a great excuse to get out there and try some of the delicious stuff we look at every day, and a way to push yourself and try something different.  My partner this month is Mable aka Monkee from Twentysomething and Cooking.  She contacted me about one of my dishes that reminded her of a trip she had taken to Cambodia.  When I looked at her blog, one of the first things I saw was this breakfast dish that reminded me of a fantastic cruise I took with my mother a few years ago. We were on a small luxury cruise ship run by the norwegians. I first tasted muesli on that boat and had it every day for breakfast while we traveled the south of France and Spain. I had been looking online for a recipe that would help me re-create it.  I was stunned and suprised to find it here on Mable's blog, and knew I would have to give it a try.  

I tweaked it a bit for convenience.  Check out Mable's version here
