I had the girls over this morning for brunch and it was marvelous. I love to feed the people I love. It's exhilarating for me in probably the same way that I imagine bungee jumping is for (insane idiots who don't value life) other people.
I made a beautiful spinach and ham (what else - I have a metric ton of it left over from last week) quiche, fresh pineapple and strawberries, bagels with cream cheese, lox, capers and the works. Oh and blueberry muffins I made yesterday. Yum! I had some prosecco chilling but nobody wanted a cocktail this morning. Ah well - more for me.
After brunch we all went out to see Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day and that too was marvelous and I demand you all go see it this instant!
Ahem. Excuse me.
Sorry. I'm not normally so bossy, but I've had about eleven cups of coffee and the movie is really very good. Even MDH loved it.
Oh, I nearly forgot... the title of the post is the title of my new iPod playlist that I made especially for the brunch feast. It's also the name of the imaginary restaurant that my lovely friend Steph and I sometimes fantasize about running together. We'll serve only the things we feel like cooking so the fantasy restaurant patrons will just get what they get and they'll like it or get the hell out.
The best part is that our imaginary restaurant is only open for lunch so we can get the hell out and not feel like we're chained to the imaginary kitchen all day. Then we can go imaginary shoe shopping I suppose.
Anyhoo... all the songs in this playlist having something to do with food. I'm feeling generous (and all hopped up on caffeine and sugar) so I'm going to upload a few of the song selections to my blog for you to listen to (and download) as you like.
Oh and... HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAN! Not quite my oldest friend, but certainly one of my dearest.
Allrighty... it seems that FileNanny, the site that I normally upload my shared music to is down with no explanation whatsoever ... thanks for that FileNanny. There won't be any clickability here after all. Perhaps another time.
