The beauty of breakfast with friends...

A couple weeks ago, I went to visit one of my best friends in New Orleans with another good friend. We spent a few days there enjoying the city and helping our friend with her new house. Well, really, it’s an old house that she’s renovating, but it’s new to her. It is a wonderful old home with lots of charm that really just needs some TLC. The changes she has made so far have been perfect for the house and I can’t wait to see how it all turns out.
We helped her with the kitchen, which is a complete renovation. One of the perks of getting her cabinets out of the dining room and into their proper arrangement in the kitchen is there was enough room to put the dining room table together and fetch the chairs from storage. Which meant we could eat a meal at her house. And that led to a wonderful breakfast, New Orleans style.
We enjoyed all sorts of goodies from a local bakery, from quiche to savory rolls to freshly made donuts, and added our own assortment of fruit. A little hot tea, coffee and the Sunday New York Times and we were set for a fabulous little feast, made all the more wonderful for the company.
It was a beautiful breakfast.
