I could eat breakfast at any time of the day. I find it to be an incredibly versatile meal – there’s just so much you could do with the tastes (sweet vs. savory), the portion control (guilty as charged: I always opt for a hefty breakfast), and its arrangement (meat-heavy, carb-packed, granola-centered, etc). That being said, I absolutely adore serving it. A few Sundays ago, my friend Amanda came over for a mid-day visit and it was just so appropriate to host a “Sunday brunch.” She brought over a bag of fresh croissants and we cooked 3 plates worth of bacon, eggs, and potatoes.
My favorite part of making this meal was drawing inspiration from one of my favorite local diners and serving a side of mashed potatoes.
This was the first time Joe and I got to sit down and enjoy Amanda’s company since our recent nuptials. I have known Amanda since high-school and her friendship has always meant so much to me. It was wonderful to be able to spend some quality time with both her and my hubby, in the same room, devouring the same breakfast items (and of course, those mashed potatoes made for one interesting conversation starter!).
