B-R-U-N-C-H ?


i have decided that we are a brunch family. doesn't that sound nice? brandon thinks that is a cheesy idea, but you know what, brandon?

but can one just decide to be a brunch family? or perhaps one has to earn it somehow? how many brunches until it is official? 

i just have feelings about brunch. amorous feelings. i have feelings like maybe nothing bad could ever happen to a person at brunch. i mean, it's food, that you eat, after sleeping in, mainly involving poached eggs. whoever thought of this idea was clearly a genius, and i would like to leave him my syrupy hollandaise thanks with home fries on the side and a tall glass of diet coke instead of a mimosa, please.

a few saturdays ago it was restaurant week, so we brunched at bar boulud, a very fancy brunchy place indeed. only now that i've typed it out i don't like to say "brunched" in the verb sense, that's silly sounding. good. see? it's important to really know your feelings about brunch, all the way through. i mean, that much is clear.


branodn's brunch includes pate with mini pickles,
because that is just the sort brandon i am married to.

  1. Brunch is, THE BEST, meal of the day.
    Which is sadly not a sentiment shared by my partner, he doesn't see the point of combining two meals when you can just have two seperate ones instead.

    But Eggs Benedict is my other lover, so we will continue to be happy without him.

  3. (a) Brunch is the BEST.
    (b) Bar Boulud? You lucky duck.
    (c) Have you read Kitchen Confidential? Oh, I hope so. It is a rawther vulgar, bruiser of a book, and he has (if memory serves) some tart words somewhere in there to say about brunch. But you know what? Anthony Bourdain can suck it. Because brunch is awesome.

  7. i agree brunch is amazing. i also love a diet coke with brunch, particularly if i had a little too many mimosas the day before. luckily for you, nyc is brunch central, so your thoughts on becoming a brunch can very much be realized.

  8. We love brunch too. When we have afternoon church we will have a gourmet brunch with friends before church at our house. So nice to eat breafasty foods for what is essentially a dinner party. One slight problem though...everyone gets a bit sleepy during sacrament meeting!

  18. Brunch is my absolute favorite as well. I don't like going to breakfast...too early. And lunch is well...nothing really exciting. Brunch however...fabulous.

  20. LOVE brunch. Except then I have to add in another meal in the day just to make sure I don't miss one...you know, wouldn't want to miss a meal! Heaven forbid!

    P.S. where did you get your saltwater sandals I have seen in previous posts? The adult ones?

  21. @erin--i got them through the manufacturer online a few years ago, but you can get them online at madewell.com. they are THE BEST, and really comfortable.

    @rebekah and @eva and @melanie--thanks! they're vintage, i scored them in moscow at my favorite antique mall! i have DREAMS about that antique mall, that place was sooooo good to me.

  23. NO WAY! I am 98% sure that I went to college with the guy in the blue shirt sitting at the table behind Huck! That is crazy! (Put a smile on my face, though.) :-)

    You don't happen to have any closer pictures of him, do you? The guy behind Huck?
