Less than 24 hours after returning from vacation and one rushed load of laundry later, my husband had to jet off for a work trip. I decided to surprise him with a big brunch when he got home yesterday afternoon, complete with whole wheat blueberry pancakes, bacon, toast, sweet potato hash browns, eggs cooked in bacon grease, cantaloupe, fried pancetta, warm syrup and orange juice.

Then after we ate, I asked what he had for breakfast at the airport, to which he responded with “ummm… eggs, hash browns, pancakes and bacon.”

Of course.

[P.S. clearly I’m still trying to like coffee. A pile of sugar and giant pour of coconut milk later, still wanted to choke it up. It’s cool though. I have other plans for that flavor. Grand plans.]

    If your plans fall through you can feel free to send that coffee my way. I kind of want to curl up and live inside that bag, and roll around in the beans like a giant ball pit of delicious smells and caffeine. Is that weird?

    After we’d been together a few months (and, admittedly, back when I was vegetarian) my husband confessed – when drunk – that when I invited him over for dinner he would get a Maccy D’s on the way to mine …. (!!?!?!?!?!?!??!?!)

    What a spread! Love how you serve coffee in mason jar mugs. Coconut milk is a fresh idea for a creamer. Gotta try that. Thanks!

    Have you tried putting sweetened condensed milk in your coffee? It’s…

    So

    Good.

    Maybe you’ll like it! :)

    Also, I love that you have not one, but two types of bacon. You’re awesome.

    Fantastic photos! The one where you captured the steam coming off the veggies is awesome. Is pancetta like proscuitto? And the blueberry pancakes look amazing…if you ever felt compelled to try gluten-free baking, I would be the first to follow your recipe!

    So… Apparently I need to adjust my browser settings to not allow me to view your blog in the morning. Your pictures and recipes are phenomenal! And my tummy is grumbling with rage that it cannot devour what is pictured above!
