I like brunch. It is something that I can hardly do in a normal working day so weekends are usually my brunch day. Brunch has always been associated with relax and pleasant memories as most of my brunches were done with L and my bff. Brunches with bff were the times when we were just sat in the cafe for hours, tried to be more adventurous with our food choice and caught up with each other’s life.
Brunches with L are different. They are usually at home and prepared by me. Those were the times when both of us sat down and “really talked” to each other after a busy week. We basically talked about anything for hours before we headed to do our groceries shopping. Candle-light dinner and movie are never something we used to do as a couple and it is somehow amusing that we’ve got to date each other more regularly after married in a brunch-groceries shopping weekend.
However, not every brunch with L is with an intention of dating. Some of them are just due to a very practical or unromantic reason: I get up late and I am too lazy to cook two meals before evening. This is exactly the case for our first home-made brunch after 3 months apart. I baked the scones the night before and reheat them again in the oven before serving because i think scones are best eaten when they are still warm. As both of us aren’t a fan of either jam or clotted cream, I made some baked avocados and baked eggs to serve with the scones. Baked eggs are my preferred brunch options because L likes the meat (ham or bacons) while I like the spinach with runny yolks.
A brunch that took 30-45 minutes to prepare was really good enough for me when I was lazy. Even the scones were done within 45 minutes as well the night before. If one day, you are feeling lazy to go out for a brunch, why not just get some flour, butter, milk and eggs together and you’ll get some really nice stuffs at home. Really.
