It’s Sunday morning and you stir awake around the weekly alarm time, then doze back off with thoughts of spending the day in comfy clothes, doing whatever it is that makes you happy. Whether it’s watching football, attending church service, playing with your little ones, meal planning for the week, visiting with friends, or reading a book, it’s all done at your own pace – That’s a perfect Sunday.
For us foodies, these kind of days scream for GREAT FOOD! A freshly brewed cup of coffee enjoyed in a favorite mug as opposed to a travel mug on the go feels like a gift. Pair it with a delightful and slightly fancy breakfast…now Sunday is off to an amazing start. Enjoy your weekend!
