"What could be more practical for Mother than a lovely house coat or brunch coat that she'll wear with pride for months and months to come. Not only are these creations lovely to look at, but Mother will appreciate their easy care too. Never need ironing. You'll find dainty nose gay print on white backgrounds. Long coat in sizes 40 - 46: Brunch coat in sizes 12 - 20 and 40 - 46." 1955 Vogue
I love brunch. Its so NOT French!
Easy, low key and relaxed, its one of those Anglo/American traditions that all ex-pats should keep alive.
Yesterday we headed out to the country for a friend's "Brunch In." Greeted with the smell of cooking bacon and a glass of Mimosa who could help but smile. We lounged over plates spilling over with bacon, Irish breakfast sausages, buttery scrambled eggs with cheese and herbs, fried potato bread, grits (?? foreign for the antipodean), toasted bagels.
More and more Mimosa..that's ok its full of vitamin C with all that orange juice so we were also anti-body-building against the flu...always an excuse!
Mimosa - a sinful start-up
1 part freshly squeezed orange juice to 1 part champagne.
The highlight, freshly baked Cinnamon Rolls...served hot,oozing with caramelized pecan, sugar and cinnamon. Thank you saint of cakes for sending Janice to Bordeaux!
We lolled around gossiping and laughing, full of the joys of friendship and food..What better way to start the weekend?
Loved the way our men, all french, sat away from us and bonded over bacon and blueberry muffins...their frenchness had them doing brunch with Bordeaux reds. Flushed and smiling beatifically after warm cinnamon rolls, there were no rude comments about anglo-saxon/american traditions today!
I will definately be serving "Brunch In" soon....maybe I need a "Darling Brunch Coat?"
