Sunday brunch: The Coziest Meal of the week!

by Leslie Patson | 2nd May 2010

I just love Sunday brunch! Especially when it’s given by really good friends and you know it’s gonna be special! This past Sunday Marc and I were invited over to Miriam and Michael’s new house for brunch and as we wound our ways though Laurel Canyon the green of spring and the wild flowers growing all over the canyon just increased the sense of relaxation – so rare these day!

There is nothing like a spread of homemade quiches (asparagus and lorraine), fresh fruit salad, bagels with all the trimmings and the most amazing cloud of a coconut cake to make you want to reach for a glass of champagne. Wait, did I say that?!!! Yes, I did and that’s because Mimosa’s are Brunch 101 and everyone should know that!!!

Luckily Michael was whipping out some pretty good strong French Press coffee to keep us from entering that lovely but dangerous champagne haze – Miriam calls it the Laurel Canyon Lethargy syndrome (but Marc and I just had such a cozy spot on their couch…!)

Marc and I were the last to leave, honestly I could have stayed on and on just sitting at the dining room table chatting away but the day still called, always something to do, even on a Sunday. Miriam and Michael were expecting some last minute drop ins, perhaps there to finish off the coconut cake or have a later afternoon or early evening Mimosa.

That said, I think it’s fair to say that Sunday brunch is just a state of mind!

Thanks you guys, it was absolutely lovely and downright Cozy!

    Yes please! I want to do this. At your place, or on Gavin's porch, some mid morning. I'll bring the tomatoes and arugula (with a hint of dill) salad. So I guess that means what…about 2 weeks?! Dang it that quiche looks amazing!!
