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!
