As one guy once put it to me, “No, I am not obsessed with brunch, because I’m not a white, 20-something girl.”
Guilty as charged.
But who can resist? Brunch includes everything you could possibly want out of a meal: champagne, what amounts to dessert disguised as a meal (waffles and/or french toast), and bacon.
But screw the 45-minute wait at my neighborhood restos. This girl has got her own top-of-the-line waffle maker (thanks to a stepdad who obsessively researches every purchase of a consumer product over $50) and I intend to make good use of it.
So I invited over my friend B. for some delicious brunch. I fronted the food cost, she brought the champagne, and we were both happy. Total cost for the food? $35. And that included ingredients that weren’t completely used up, like the farmers market eggs, whole wheat flour and organic orange juice. Bargain!
On the menu: Lemon waffles topped with sugared blackberries, lemon yogurt and lemon zest. And bacon (duh).
Bacon from the Union Square farmers market
The glass B. is holding is recycled glass–a birthday gift from my other dear friend D. for my birthday in November.
Doesn’t this make you hungry?
