There is something about Mother's Day that practically commands, "thou shalt brunch to honor thy mother." While that particular commandment may be missing from the Old Testament, I still honor it with reverence. For what momma would not love an entire meal devoted just to her?
The ideal combination for brunch is quite simple: something eggy, something sweet, something fruity and the requisite bacon. Add coffee and mimosas (or the far less thrilling fizzy o.j. that I consumed). Enjoy!
My basic brunch yesterday included the following:
|Farm fresh strawberries & blueberries with a little sugar glaze. Serve with Greek yogurt and honey on the side.|
|Mini heirloom tomatoes & poached asparagus.|
|Orange-coconut sticky buns (Recipe adapted from here. My alterations: only use 18 rolls instead of 24. Add 1 cup of shredded coconut, 1-2 tablespoons of orange zest to butterscotch mixture. Be extra generous with your cinnamon. Use pecan pieces instead of walnuts. Bake for 45 minutes.)|
|Prosecco mimosa with a splash of ginger ale.|
|Scrambled eggs with chives & Ina's maple roasted bacon.|
|Serve at cozy table with some special feminine touches.|
