Everyone has their own kitchen quirks. I realized this the other day when my friends were talking about their eggs in the fridge. The discussion began after our friend Brooke posed the question, "Does anyone rearrange eggs in the carton or is that just me?" Turns out, she was the only one in our group but I know she can't be the only one who does it. But who knew? Seriously, I've known the girl for more than 20 years and had no idea! That's quirky.
Wait, I don't even keep my eggs in a carton...
I keep them in a big bowl in the fridge. Hmmm. Now, that's quirky.
And I always prep the coffee the night before. Always. I guess that's quirky too.
I'm telling you, kitchen quirks. Everyone's got them.
What do all these quirky habits have to do with a bread bar? Well, when it comes to weekend mornings, one of my favorite things to do is to relax on the couch with a nice cup of coffee. And thanks to my quirky kitchen habit of prepping it the night before, coffee is a cinch to make. Ah, I can hear the couch calling my name...
Oh wait. Breakfast! Now, I love to make pancakes and bacon and eggs or muffins or biscotti, especially on the weekends. But sometimes, I just want the coffee. On the couch. Mmmmm. That's where the bread bar comes in. It's such a fun and delicious breakfast but I literally can throw it together in 5 minutes. Patrick and Dallas both love it!
The Bread Bar can be whatever you want. I toast the bread and when it's nice and hot I rub a garlic clove over each piece. My mom used to make garlic toast like that all the time. Then comes the toppings: I always have avocados in the house. Smash one up and mix it with salt and olive oil. Chop up a tomato and add salt and olive oil. And make a dipping oil with olive oil, salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning. Put it all out the table and grab your coffee.
If you have a toddler maybe grab a napkin too... Enjoy!
