Yes, we did get a rug! I'm so excited, the space is really coming together, plus I got a navy tray (from Crate and Barrel) and the orange birdhouse ties in with our new cooler:)
For brunch I made a vegetable frittata, french toast casserole, berries and coffee (of course). Plus we had a bottle of rose to go with it.
I find french toast to be delicious, but making it to order is time consuming and then I'm stuck in the kitchen. To make it as a casserole you just slice up the bread (I used a cinnamon swirl challah loaf from a local bakery), place it in a casserole dish with the traditional dipping ingredients (sugar, cinnamon, milk, eggs), and bake the whole thing at 350 for about 15-20 minutes.
The frittata also required no hands-on time during our get-together. My husband chopped up the vegetables (mushrooms, asparagus, red onions...), I sauteed them in olive oil in an oven-proof skillet, then poured in the eggs (8), let the bottom set up a bit, maybe 3 minutes, then put the whole thing in the 350 degree oven for 10 minutes til it was cooked through. You can also add cheese and herbs if you'd like. We didn't have any, but I'm a big fan of goat cheese in frittatas, and maybe a little chervil, parsley, chives...
Side note- my 4.5 year old can crack eggs!
