The first Sunday of every month our church has a little gathering after the worship service…we call it coffee fellowship. It’s an opportunity for the church family and guests to get together and visit, catch up, and love on it each other. Food is a big part of these coffee fellowships and each month I oversee the food part of these get-togethers. Thankfully that doesn’t mean I provide the food each month…that would be WAY too much for one person. Instead, I delegate this responsibility out to our small groups or other individuals to handle each month. September was my month to actually provide the food. Usually, when it’s my turn, I bring pastries, cheese and crackers, and a fruit salad or veggie tray. This time, someone had a bunch of leftover yogurt and granola from a different church function and asked if I could use it for coffee fellowship. Ummm, YES! I love using leftovers! So this month I decided to throw together a Yogurt Bar.
It was SUPER easy to put together and it made me think it would be PERFECT for when we have out of town guests staying with us or even an early morning get-together at the house.
For the Yogurt Bar, I bought yogurt, strawberries, and blueberries. Someone made granola (which was phenomenal), but for convenience, you could pick some up at the grocery.
Many people commented on what a great idea it was and how much they love yogurt. Topping it with fruit and granola makes a nice balanced breakfast.
I picked up up some oranges, bagels with cream cheese spread, mini donuts, cinnamon bread, and made some mini muffins to make sure I had enough for everyone and to offer options for those that may not like yogurt.
Juice, milk, and coffee completed our breakfast.
I will DEFINITELY be using this idea again for coffee fellowship and for home as well.
