Sunny Breakfast on the Patio

Since the weather here in Atlanta gets “stuck” between Winter and Spring this time of year, we know to take advantage of those random warm, sunny days that tease us out from our homes.

That is exactly what happened last Saturday.

Coffee Cup

Waking to find the birds chirping, the sun shining, and the weather warm, we dared to test the outside temperature. Yes, it was above the 60 degree mark. What could that mean, you ask? Just one thing – Breakfast On The Patio…..Wooo Hooo!!!

Care to join us? Pull up a chair and enjoy the bubbling fountain.

Simple to prepare, we enjoyed freshly made pumpkin chocolate chip muffins slathered with organic peach jam from Italy, and soft-boiled eggs.

Peach Jam

Muffins and Eggs

Yes, I cheated and used the Trader Joe’s pumpkin muffin mix…super fast. Sub’d apple sauce for most of the oil, added oatmeal, ground flax-seed, mini chocolate chips, almonds, and raisins to the mix. On the plus side, since you never know when the weather here will change, we were assured of our patio time in the sun.

Alas, it started raining on Sunday, and has continued until today. But, with visions of breakfast still on our minds, we know Spring will be here in full force any day now….right? Yes? Please!!!

  1. Very nice. Alas, we usually get a few warm “maybe this is spring” kind of days by now but this winter just won’t let go. I hear we’re getting a blizzard Wed. so I think our dining will be inside for a bit longer. Love that cup & saucer – did you happen to get that in Sienna?

    Would you believe I woke up to a little snow on this first day of spring. Breakfast outdoors must have been lovely.
