I will never forget the day I walked into a breakfast buffet that knocked my socks off. I am a foodie and ALWAYS remember out of this world food buffets!
We were young, newly married and fresh out of college. Dean had landed his first "real" job out of college and each year his company took its employees and wives on a retreat to California. As we awoke the first morning, we were invited to breakfast. As I walked into the restaurant, my jaw dropped to the floor. It was the most beautiful display of food I had ever seen in my life!
My eyes focused in on an array of clear glasses filled with yogurt topped with all kinds of vibrant fresh fruits and crunchy granola. There were so many options and I definitely wanted to try them all! I am pretty sure I took one of each.....in the name of "research" of course, in order to discover which flavor combination I liked the best. Even though it was 19 years ago, I can still remember exactly how those yogurt breakfast bowls tasted. The yogurt was rich and creamy and the perfect balance to the sweet fruit and decadent granola.
Thanks to that heavenly buffet, yogurt breakfast parfaits became one of my favorite breakfasts!
