Breakfast is important.
As we all know the saying “Breakfast is the most important meal of the day” and I am guilty of skipping it in my high school days not so much once college became a thing after sitting through a 90 minute to 2-hour lecture with my stomach belching the whale calls of the sea. I felt some Finding Nemo vibes after imagining the sounds of whales. Don’t hate.
But what I am talking about isn’t nutrition or the meal itself, but the people you share it with.
Every year we gather around a table in November and share what we are grateful for, but why let it stop there?
Whenever Alex and I share the same day off we team up and have the best breakfast feast together. What we do while we indulge doesn’t matter, but the teamwork we put in to create food masterpieces is an incredible feeling.
Now we aren’t food gurus or chefs….well Alex is closer than I to the magical culinary effects when it comes to the knowledge of culinary masters aka Alex. So!
I am talking sausage patties or links, eggs scrambled or fried, hash browns, and coffee always coffee. Sometimes we fit toast into the mix, but for the most part, its overlooked.
We have more fun making the food as well as eating it, but I think the feeling of us spending time together working on something we can share with one another. I usually do coffee, grind the beans and set up the coffeemaker and then I do hashbrowns which I have yet to perfect. I get so paranoid I am going to burn them. Alex is usually on eggs and bacon/sausage. We aren’t opposed to working on each other’s “stations” its just how things ended up.
So! Am I just going on about our morning routines about sharing food? Well, yes. You should too. Grab someone you care about and invite them over for breakfast or meet up with them. You don’t necessarily have to make it although it is quite fun. Call or text friends and family to see if they would like to come over, go out or make breakfast with you.
It doesn’t even have to stop at breakfast it could be brunch, lunch, dinner or dessert.
Sidenote: As I was writing this, we were making breakfast and I think I mastered the hashbrown talent because they came out AMAZING!
