8-hour breakfast

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!) …

More fruit:


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:


Mashed together:



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!

    Seriously, I want to come work where you do. Granted, I’d probably never lose another pound, but all that looks SO amazing! Today was a 5 on the deliciousness scale! Crack wrap for breakfast, Italian for lunch, and Thai for dinner!

    Why thank you! hahah….just kidding! Your co-worker Jessica is always hooking you up with the best stuff! That peanut butter/fluff on bread combo looks divineeee….probably the prettiest food picture i’ve seen all day! 🙂

    And today’s probably been a 3 or 4! Lots of good food, but nothing out of the ordinary. I’ve consumed peanut butter, english muffins, hummus, fruit and yogurt though….so it’s been a good day!

    Yay for breakfast all day! The best meal of the day 😀 I’m loving that fruit–yum! That oatmeal sounds fabulous, too!
    I think my day was a 3.5 on deliciousness. Nothin too fancy, but I had some yummy eats! 🙂 Nothing compared to yours, though!
