Breakfast Hospitality

May 9, 2006

Have you ever invited guests over for breakfast? Josh and I did this past Saturday and it was really fun, a nice change to having people over for dinner. Although, since it was Josh’s grandparents that we had over, “guests” is probably the wrong word.

Anyway, it was nice to have people over when we were fresh and awake. The day was beautiful and I made eggs with herbs and cheese, bacon, fresh fruit, coffee and juice, while Josh’s grandmother brought delicious sticky buns. We had breakfast and visited for a while, before they went on their way to do Saturday errands and we started cleaning out our shed. It was a lovely way to start the day, I highly recommend it, and think we’ll try it again with non-family members in the future. It might be a nice way to have a family with children over. And breakfast foods are so yummy and easy to prepare. No stress!

    That sounds wonderful, delicious and amazing! Good for you for doing something different. How kind also it was for you to invite the grandparents over, I’m sure that they were blessed by that.

    thanks for stopping by my blog 🙂

    what a great idea about breakfast! I have lots of great breakfast recipes but you always just think of inviting friends over for dinner. I’ll have to try this sometime!

    MMMMM. I love breakfast!! My favorite meal of the day. We have done the brunch thing a lot with friends. Make a breakfast strada and pull out the belgian waffle maker, chop up fresh fruit.

    How sweet to invite your grandparents. I bet they loved that.

    Breakfast is probably the meal I could eat no matter what time of day. Brunches are wonderful. Good for you. What is also appealing about having folks over for breakfast is that, unless you a casserole the night before, you don’t really have to start cooking until they get there, which means no wasted work (unless you’ve set a big table, of course). As for kids, they can usually be satisfied with canned cinnamon rolls and a glass of milk. Or those cute little cereal boxes just for fun. Pricey, but memorably fun. Then send them outside with a beach ball and sit around the table (or outside) with coffee w/ the adults. Then, like you said, it gives you the rest of the day to get stuff done (or nap if you want to!). We used to do brunches all the time when the kids were little. They dressed up and played waiter and Waitress, and the grandparents were huge tippers.

    I’ll strike a discordant note and say I have no use for breakfast. However, the idea of inviting someone over for breakfast, especially with kids in tow, is very good. Kids are usually fresh and happy in the morning, and I can usually find some cinnamon rolls and milk to make me happy, too. 🙂 Something to think about!
