Sunday Brunch with a View

Sunday morning seems like the perfect time to whip up a lovely brunch with to enjoy with the view from an outdoor terrace. Luckily my residence hall has a pretty fantasic outdoor balcony with a view of the campus. (It’s amazing how quiet a college campus is at 10am…I think it was just me and the squirrels awake at that hour.)

Last week, I got my very first care package of the year, complete with all sorts of goodies from my mom. Including funky cupcake holders and a cinnamon coffee cake mix! So yesterday, I walked over to Target (pronounced “Tar-jaaaaay ”) and bought myself a cupcake pan. I decided it would be best to make the coffee cake into muffins for A) Portion Control and B) so I could share with some girls in my hall!

Baking anything with cinnamon just smells heavenly, and I waited not-so-patiently for these cute little coffee cake muffins to come out while sipping on some coffee and reading up on Economics for a quiz I get to look forward to tomorrow. ;)

Sliced fruit brought some nutritional balance to the brunch. I sliced up a pretty medley of raspberries, strawberries, and bananas (snacking as I went!)

Bananas, Strawberries, Raspberries, oh my!

With a fresh cup of coffee, this brunch was enjoyed from the second floor terrace in central campus with the peacefulness of a quiet Sunday morning. It was delicious!

Balcony Brunch View – where are all the people!?

And now for an equally serene walk to get my “workout” in before my afternoon plans. Enjoy the day!

  3. It is nice that you appricate the peacefulness of the morning. It took me years to understand what peace really meant. You are way ahead of the game. Looks like a great breakfast. :)

  4. A muffin pan is an awesome way to portion control! I just started doing a mini egg white omelette muffin for the husband to grab out of the fridge before he PTs in the morning!
