...you pre-pack your breakfast foods on vacation. Yes, there is a breakfast buffet in the hotel. No, I'm not excited about sausages, biscuits and gravy at 7am. So I packed my own pre-portioned breakfast in ziploc bags. Instant oats, chocolate protein powder, flax seeds, and almonds.
I'll definitely be enjoying meals out for my other meals, and I'm not worried about the calories or fat of my morning meal. I'm just a little OCD and need my breakfast, on my schedule. Remember that ridiculous routine? Anyway, I'm setting off for a quick 3 day-2 night trip to Savannah, Georgia today. I wanted to leave my neighbors a little sweet treat because they are so kind.
1--Make really simple muffins from a package. Misread label. Pour in too much milk. End up with dense chocolaty rocks.
2. Try again. Make simple butter cookies that end up not sweet enough, and pretty bland.
3. Lightbulb moment: Dip them in melted chocolate. Genius. Cover them with candies, including some milk chocolate rocks you bought on a whim.
4. Eat 7 just to make sure they're really ok. Yep, they're ok.
Do you bring your own foods on vacation?
I've never brought breakfast before, but I do usually bring along healthy snacks and bottled water.
Are you a taste-tester as you bake or cook?
Um, yes. It's ridiculous. I lick the spoon, the bowl, eat the dough, eat the finished product before it's cool...no patience at all!
