I won’t classify myself as a breakfast person. I eat it; it’s usually pretty straight forward: oatmeal with fruit, cereal with fruit and yogurt, almond butter toast… Nothing crazy, right?
A few weeks ago a friend brought a great breakfast spread to a weekly morning meeting. The meeting, which is just usually over coffee and tea, became that much more amazing! It never ceases to surprise me just how much food can enhance a moment in your life, even if it is just a meeting.
The others at the meeting and I decided that meeting over food was fun, and we’ve now decided to turn the routine meeting permanently into a breakfast meeting. I (very nerdily) created a spreadsheet, sent it around, and the breakfast meeting was official. Because everything’s more real in a spreadsheet right?
This week was my turn. After my friend’s sweet take on breakfast, I decided to go savory. One of the group mentioned that she loved quinoa, so I went for a filling (yet healthy) quinoa muffin. When we met, I also brought a peach and strawberry salad, just to throw more goodness in there. I reheated the muffins as well, which really makes them sing.
