Lately I have found myself reading more and more lifestyle blogs and following more “pretty home things” on Instagram. I just love the look of organized homes, inspiring office spaces, and lovely home cooked meals. Taking in all of this perfection can sometimes leave me feeling ho-hum though.
My office space is also the dog’s bedroom so I often work from the couch using a tv stand. My home is not perfectly organized unless I have a guest at the door. My meals are tasty, but not worthy of a Good Housekeeping Magazine spread. Similar to what I said last week in my Koss review, this would be brunch for the everyday gal.
When I was grocery shopping on Sunday, I felt the desire to make breakfast on Martin Luther King Day since my husband and I were both off from work. He is not into fru-fru foods, so I wanted to make it simple and appealing. I hate having to “sell” the food I prepare to him. (Honey… I promise it tastes good even though I can barely pronounce the name of 5 out of 7 of the ingredients.)
Among my normal grocery list, I picked up thick cut slab bacon, fresh chives, eggs, southern style biscuits, and mint tea. I should have grabbed some champagne to make mimosas, but my grocery store didn’t have a brand that I liked. But mint tea? It reminded me of mornings in Jamaica and I know the husband loves it.
I scrambled the eggs with minimal salt, black pepper, and folded in chopped fresh chives. The bacon was pan fried while the biscuits were baking in the oven. The water was boiled, the tea was perfectly steeped for 3 minutes and topped with cane sugar.
The conversation we had on the couch while watching the morning shows was longer than the time I spent in the kitchen. Plus, how can you not like a meal that includes bacon?
Do you ever make brunch at home?
What’s your favorite breakfast food?
