I warned my coworkers that any extra food from my party would be brought into work today. Â After five trips from my car, these leftovers made it to our break room. Â People seemed happy at the choice offered between cake, cookies, truffles, crackers and cheeses, and chips but the biggest star were the meatballs. Â I brought in about four and a half pounds of meatballs and the first meatball sandwich was consumed at around 7:30 AM with theÂ crock potÂ still cold. Â The last meatball was consumed a little bit after 10. Â I never considered a meatball sandwich a breakfast food but obviously other more avant garde stomachs had. Â I brought this up to boss who had an idea on reflection:
Boss: Meatballs are essentially tiny meatloaves. Â Meatloaf is one of the kings of comfort food. Â Mondays are stressful and people want release from that and latch to things that most seem like comfort food.
I like that explanation even though I’m pretty sure it’s utterÂ malarkey.
