I have an idea: let's all stay home and eat breakfast in bed.
With Valentine's Day still in my brain ( and the post-chocolate binge still in my stomach) I am dreaming that breakfast in bed could be an all the time occurrence. As a side note, my mama (blessed be she) gave me some killer Russel Stover chocolates for the big V day. And while I love them so much, I find I can't eat more than one at a time or else I end up with a sugar binge induced tummy ache. To spare myself from such, I cut them in half in order to get some variety. But now I have so many half chocolates that I need to finish those too.
Does anyone else do this? No just me?
While I have never had the privilege of having breakfast made for me in bed by another person, I have enjoyed making breakfast in bed for my mama on mother's day. And by making I mean pouring a bowl of cereal and milk and carrying the tray up the stairs. This is actually way more difficult than it sounds. On weekends, I also do this fake breakfast in bed thing where I make a bowl of oats and take it to bed with me. There is nothing more comforting than oatmeal and snuggly flannel sheets.
Maybe wine and snuggly flannel sheets, but nothing else.
Unfortunately, unless we are Beyonce, we cannot all have breakfast in bed all the time. I normally bring my breakfast to work in a variety of cleaned out jam jars and Tupperware. In fact, at work, I am known as the Tupperware queen. I consider it to be a badge of honor. Therefore, it is absolutely important that, while I am toting my breakfasts to work, I make them have a bit of indulgence that makes me BELIEVE that I am being brought my breakfast. With a glass of champagne. With 1000 swans. And Ed Sheeran serenading me.
Ok maybe a little too far.
This breakfast takes a classic to the next level: the Greek yogurt and granola bowl. I used to eat Greek yogurt religiously for breakfast every single day. While I have since diversified my options, I still love to come back to a big bowl of yogurt. Especially when I have killer toppings. And y'all know I love my toppings. These thyme roasted blueberries take my yogurt bowl to the next level. Thyme seems like a weird thing to combine blueberries with. However, it is that little bit of savory that pushes this sauce over the top. While you can serve them cold, they are best warmed up a little and pour over the yogurt, creating a luscious sauce. The sauce doesn't just work in a yogurt bowl! I also love it over oats, on ice cream, and my favorite: on a sandwich with a little brie. Doesn't that sound KILLER?! With the yogurt, though, you are taking your breakfast and giving it the ULTIMATE upgrade. Grab a spoon, close your eyes and imagine you are eating a sundae for breakfast.
