Between brunch and dinner
November 20, 2016
It’s another slow laid-back Sunday with the kind of weather that makes me want to dive back into my heap of b-b-blankets. Which I almost did. But didn’t. Instead, I zombied my way to the kitchen to get my coffee going while crunching down my bowl of cereal.
If you ever wondered how much energy it takes to wash your hair, let me tell you the answer. It’s definitely more than one bowl of cereal. Because by the time I emerge from the bathroom, guess what, I’m crazy hungry again.
So I’m off to the kitchen once again at mid-morning to start making Big Breakfasts of spicy-mango-with-jalapeno smoked chicken sausage, egg, Portobello mushrooms, green bell peppers and tomatoes. All to be washed down with cups of piping hot Chinese tea. How random is that?!
Barely two hours later, I’m back in the kitchen – again!! – this time, to make us an apple-cranberry pie for tea. With weather like this, to go from brunch to dinner with nothing in between would really be stretching it. And why not bake a pie when I have all the ingredients for it, right? Fresh apples and cranberries, let’s go!
