I just ate breakfast for literally the entire work day. And now I’m about to go to dinner. But that will be another story 🙂
As I mentioned this morning, today was my department’s “monthly” (in quotes because we only do it in the months when we don’t have other events planned … which turns out to be quite rare!) breakfast. We all converged on the conference room (yes, the one right next to my desk) around 9:45 to take stock of what had arrived.
Beryl’s really the mastermind behind these events, so those are her hands cutting Jessica’s omelets over on the left. Here are my selections:
Obviously, you need a tour of my plate.
Here’s the mangu (yayyyyyyy!!!!!!) with ham (?? I always guess because I don’t actually know what kind of meat this is), fried cheese, and vinegar onions, courtesy of Belkis and Mildred:
Pancakes from Beryl:
Half of a ham omelet and half of a plain omelet, homemade by Jessica:
Nitza’s fruit salad and my pineapple:
Corn bread and coffee cake crumbs from Rosalie:
And this most amaaaaazing ever Dominican-style oatmeal — basically blended oats with sugar and cinnamon. It’s almost more of a beverage than a spoon situation, so I drank my seconds and thirds from a cup 😛
The plate, otra vez:
Obviously, because I sit right next to the conference room table where all the leftovers hang out, I had at least another giant plate’s worth of food over the course of the afternoon. Some highlights (in other words, this list is not all-inclusive!) …
Even more fruit, plus crumbs:
The rest of the fruit:
The last bite of mangu:
Corn bread and coffee cake crumbs with peanut butter and fluff:
A leftover piece of bread with peanut butter and fluff:
(I know, I was really on a roll.)
Uh oh, the fluff is almost gone! How did that happen?
So I scraped the jar clean!
There were probably also some candies from the candy jar, too. Ohhhh, man. I’m still so full … but dinner is calling, so I must be off!
What a delicious delicious day!
On a scale of 1 to 5, how delicious was your day?
P.S. I also brought home Jessica’s leftover omelets. She is an omelet master, I’m telling you!
