Good morning afternoon? friends!
Wow where did the morning go…?! 😉
After waking up and cleaning up the house a bit, it was time to have Fanatic Mom, Dad and Uncle over for some brunch entertaining!
On the menu:
- Sweet apple pastries
- Eggs w/ peppers, onions and colby jack cheese
- Waffles w/ maple syrup
- All natural smoked maple bacon
I picked up some of these delicious mini-pastries at the store the other day, and after a few minutes to warm in the oven they were ready for snackin’ until brunch was ready!
Then I got started on the eggs
- 6 organic eggs
- 1/3 block colby jack, chopped up
- 1/2 onion, diced
- 1/2 cup peppers, diced
- 1 tblsp butter
- S&P to taste
I cooked the peppers & onions in butter until soft and translucent. I splurged with butter this morning because my Uncle really likes the stuff, and who am I to not cater to my guests? 😉
After the veggies were ready, I added the eggs for a few minutes until almost cooked, stirring occasionally. Then the cheese went in until the melted & the eggs were dunzo.
There was also bacon on the menu, which I used my fave method to cook —> BAKING! Just plop on a foil lined baking pan and into a 400F oven for about 15 minutes and voila!
This Wellshire Farms all natural Smoked Maple bacon was fabulous! And baking works like a charm every time 😛
Last up were the waffles, made in our waffle maker with a basic mix. Served with maple syrup & butter, warm & deelish!
Frank’s hot sauce & all 😉
I haven’t really experimented much with early afternoon entertaining, but I must say that I am really diggin’ it after today! Why?
- It usually involves making dishes that are easy to prepare, therefore allowing you to be in & out of the kitchen and enjoying the time with your guests as you should be!
- The meals are not only no-fuss, but usually fairly economical since eggs & bacon don’t normally blow the budget.
So there you have it, a lovely morning spent with my fabulous family and some wonderful eats 😀
I’ll take it!
And now I’m off, I have a fun post planned for tonight so I gots to get to some things for that 😉 I also am in desperate (seriously ha) need of a workout today, it’s been since Thursday oooops! We are going to visit The Man’s parents today too and make this a full family fun day….
Phew! Then after that a fun dinner item planned too – perhaps some more curry is involved?
Have a wonderful day friends
