Just Stopped in to Say Hello

I just want to tell you that I love brunch. It is by far my favorite meal for many a good reason. First of all, everyone knows that the term "brunch" was created from combining "breakfast" and "lunch," right? This means that if I am eating brunch that I have not had to get up early, but rather been able to sleep in until I am fully rested. This often also means- as so often happens with brunch- that I am about to have a long, leisurely meal, which, by natural consequences, means that I probably don't have anywhere else to be- namely, work- during or around that time. And think about it, brunch is by far the most social meal a person can eat. Really, one never eats brunch alone, am I right? Usually you are with someone you love, or at least sincerely like being with, when you have brunch.

With that said, of course the absolute best part of brunch is the food. Anything that combines the best of two meals has to be good. Brunch dishes are my absolute favorite. In fact, pondering these dishes is what inspired my theme for this month. I am going to call it "brunch month." So, for the entire month I am going to be sharing with you my favorite brunch recipes, and my favorite restaurants to have brunch, and maybe other things that may have to do with brunch. (A side note: writing the word "brunch" so many times has mad me realize it is a stupid sounding word. It's too bad, really, since the name doesn't do the meal justice at all. Any suggestions for a better term?)

My next post will be about the brunch buffet we had yesterday. It was the first time we've been to this certain place, an lemme tell you, it was tres bon. I don't want to give too much away, but lets just say it involved crab legs, oysters, waffles, omelets, biscuits, mac and cheese, sticky buns, a lot of fruit, and a chocolate fountain....I know....
