So, here’s the deal. I love brunch just like almost all twenty something females – if you didn’t know it’s like a thing now. Growing up brunch was dreadfully boring and often reserved for family trips to San Francisco – I had to dress up, listen to classical music and eat strange new things on nice white china.
Brunch today is just fantastic and not so stuffy, its full of sexy bed head looks and sweatshirts that say “I woke up like this” it’s for the foodiest of foodies and it’s full of some of the best alcoholic beverages. Honestly I’d skip the party night before and live it up at a good brunch ANY day.
So needless to say, I love brunch and if I was one of the rich and famous of NYC I might die of excitement with all the wonderful brunch options. I am however not a rich a famous socialite of NYC or any other big city and live in little ol’ Santa Fe, NM. We have a few brunch options but on a snowy day like today I opted to make my own.
Today I made one of my favorite brunch menus (if you can really call it that!)… it’s simple – challah bread, lightly scrambled eggs with dill and a dash a Tapatio sauce, bacon (cooked to a crisp) and a muesli/yogurt concoction full of raspberries (my favorite berry) and honey. Oh, and a strong cup of coffee sadly not pictured.
^^turned around and brunch prep looked like a painting, i almost fainted with delight^^

“When you wake up in the morning, Pooh,” said Piglet at last, “what’s the first thing you say to yourself?”
“What’s for breakfast?” said Pooh. “What do you say, Piglet?”
“I say, I wonder what’s going to happen exciting today?” said Piglet.
Pooh nodded thoughtfully. “It’s the same thing,” he said.”
