In law school we had Sunday breakfasts. For many weekends on end we all brought food, coffee and a George Foreman to cook the bacon. Mmmm bacon. It was then that I learned the joys of the meaty goodness. We gathered early, by 9 am, to prepare, enjoy and catch Meet the Press, central time. We were a mixed bunch of right and left but we all agreed to shut it and eat, at least most of the time because who wants their eggs with a side of Ann Coulter? It really was meant to be a hearty home cooked meal and a social hour before the library. I then agreed to host the Easter one. This one was later, more relaxed, and involved the Masters, as Easters do.
This year I agreed to host Easter again with promises of delicious food, good company and of course green jackets. No one needed to rush off to study anymore. Plus we wanted to make use of our new space - when we first took a look, our initial thought was this would be great to entertain. So we did this past weekend - even if we were not quite entirely settled. I spent Saturday night busying around, cooking, cleaning and making good use of the camera. On the menu, many many bottles of champagne, fresh fruit, lemony asparagus, sweet and spicy bacon, quiche Lorraine and spinach quiche (store bought thank you very much), passion fruit sorbet and boozy baked french toast. All as delicious as billed and all recipes gently lifted from some of my favorite food blogs. So enjoy our Easter as much as we did and check out some shots of the new digs. You can view the set here.
That sounds fantastic!
1) your new digs are awesome! beautiful!!
2) he looks like a fun guy that magoo. and he kinda cracks me up. the bunny ears and all.

1)thank you ma'am
2) oh he is hysterical just not sure if the bunny ears are funny. no wait they are.
3) they are TROUBLE too. Together equals lots of trouble of the eating garbage and escpaing from the backyard kind.
4) that too was quite good
Pam - pier one, good stuff.
Okay, yum. I am friggin' starving right now so to hear of bacon is probably going to make me cry. Very nice, though... now I'm going to go get some french toast.
Wow! That made me so hungry, I contemplated licking the computer screen. And that last sentence is too weird to delete.
Scrumptious! So... when are you cooking for me? I'll be sure to clear my schedule! :-p
Awww, Easter doggie! Such a sweetie.
I love your new place! Can I come live with you? Don't worry, I won't bring hubby or the cats.
Magoo does look like a funny guy. I loved when he was pretending to kiss that other guy. Reminds me of something mine would do.
JR - hope your French Toast was good I have been eating left overs all week. Delicious
brandy - not strange at all!
bre - whenever you happen to find yourself in FLA. Oh and seriously y'all the recipies are super easy - you too can do them, I swear.
CJ- funny thing is (and why she looks so upset probably) is that she was raised Jewish! She is my parents dog.
MB- c'mon over, not sure what part of town you live in - but the more the merrier. Cats and hubby welcome too!
See what several glasses of champagne can do to ya.
Sundays in the library? Oh well, the list of food you had this last weekend helped me get over that shock:) I LOVE french toast and quiche. Sounds delicious!
Love the photo...I had a great Dane as a kid that we took pictures of every Christmas in antlers for our fmaily Christmas cards...memories.
Just found your blog through justrun's page. I love it and your dog is so cute.
Jessica/Nicole - thanks for stopping by. The dog is the Sophie and we were Sophie-sitting for my parents. She made a good easter bunny though, for a Jewish dog.
