Brunch, at this particular season of my life, brunch is a particularly awesome luxury. If I get to go out to brunch, it means someone from out of town much be visiting and staying home with my children so that I can go join the ranks of the civilized for an hour or two.
What I love the most about brunch is the leisure of it. There’s no rush to get started. No rush to finish. It isn’t even an official meal time, but rather, somewhere in the middle. And the food is breakfast, only more grown up and sophisticated. Oh, it’s so much fun!
Most of the “brunching” I get to do these days is happening at home, and when we have brunch, it is because we’re hungry by 10 am (understandable if you’ve been awake with your brood since 5 am, which is not exactly abnormal around here).
Whether you get to break out your china or if you have to eat on paper plates so that nothing will get broken (shout out, sisters! I feel you!), I’ve compiled some simply mah-velous brunch ideas. Invite your girlfriends over, and lock your kids in their rooms, relax, and enjoy!
Just kidding. Sort of.
