Mondays are for mistakes!
In my community it’s parent-teacher conference time. Several churches and businesses provide meals for teachers during conferences.
And we do the same. We’ve done tacos. Enchiladas. Sloppy joes (or maybe you call them taverns? Manwich? Barbecues?!). We did pulled pork sandwiches last week.
A few years ago our school had morning conferences. We thought it was the perfect opportunity to do something different and provide breakfast!
There are so many ways breakfast should have been foolproof. Donuts or bagels being two easy options.
We went with egg bake.
Pans of egg bake. I am sure we provided other items but the highlight was definitely the egg bake.
Our team made it up the night before and it was my job to bring the egg bake over to school before conferences.
My mistake: I served cold egg bake. I didn’t keep it in the oven long enough.
You had one job, Stroh!
The worst part was I didn’t know I had served cold egg bake until a couple days after conferences when I asked a teacher how the egg bake went over. And you know when you ask a question expecting a great response? You smile. You’re upbeat. You’re expecting gratitude. That’s how I asked the question.
As soon as I asked, I knew immediately something went wrong.
The teacher was gracious. She wasn’t complaining. But I asked the question.
The egg bake was cold.
