Don’t you love Easter?! … this morning G and I did our traditional easter egg (read: chocolate) hunt and here was our haul …
Can you say toothache?!
Following that we headed off to Blee’s for a Champagne Brunch to celebrate her elevation to ‘associatehoodness’ … woohoo! Congrats Blee! It was also our celebration of surviving Lent. Yes, I survived 40 days without “trash tv” and G survived 40 days without shopping (though he did get a get out of Lent-free pass because of his Oscar ballot score).
As a co-founder of our G7 Supper Club Blee – as always – put on a fabulous spread, consisting of:
- Fruits done in a prosecco sparkling wine gelatin (OMG, amazing);
- home-made hash browns;
- roasted pears in a honey, pepper, balsamic sauce and served with manchego cheese (an unpasteurized Spanish cheese);
- eggs benny;
- a flour less chocolate cake; and,
- lots of champagne!
1) everywhere condos!; 2) Cremant de Loire!; 3) yummy drunken fruits
4) brunch plate; 5) flour less chocolate cake with raspberry coulis
Joining us for brunch was the lovely and talented Mimi and Jim; Condo Queen Katherine and friend, Eric. Funny how I always seem more interested in taking pictures of the food versus the people. Hmmmm, must work on that. Maybe next year I’ll give up taking pictures of food for Lent?
Where is the egg..??? Love Easter Egg Hunt!!
Drunken fruits?! Haha, that sure looks interesting…I wonder how they taste like. =)
RYC: I wouldn’t mind being flirted by fellow xangsters as I needed that when I am down! HAHA. It’s fun! :)
The chocolate cake looks quite heavy. Isn’t it? RYC: Thanks for the link. It’s very resourceful. They are from Vancouver and how come I didn’t know this link before? Thanks again! *hug*
what exactly are “drunken fruits”?
Wow, now that is a brunch!!!!
I survived 40 days of rain.
Oh my… you guys don’t fool around when it comes to food.
mmm… looks delicious! my brunch was nowhere near that fancy, just sharing time with friends.
