On Sundays We Brunch

Spring breeze, crisp sun, pollen hazed skies, and trees in full bloom—perfect day for an allergy attack and Sunday brunch.  Sundays are the epitome of brunch, originated by Guy Beringer whose muse was the hangover.  He felt Sundays were the best day to nurse your hangover back to sobriety, from the night before []. Now, I’m not condoning hangovers or excessive drinking, but the concept of a late breakfast/lunch, happens to be a great idea that has taken over society throughout the years.  Turning your day into bottomless mimosas and food comas that lead to building stronger interpersonal relationships is a brilliant way to connect with others.  The mimosa was created by a bartender at the Ritz Carlton in Paris, being the bourgie or rather, uppity and pretentious part of brunch—combining champagne and fruit juice in a flute glass, where you must pooch your lips to drink from the glass; this happens to be my favorite part of brunch.  Talk about ostentatious. 
It is a relaxing way to spend your Sunday afternoon (following church in my case), where you can gather with good friends to have unconstrained conversations, while rubbing shoulders and clinking glasses with other portentous people.  It's a wonderful way to unite others through the love of food and drink.  Brunch is a less judgmental way to have wine for breakfast.  Ha!  Laura and I tend to do brunch on Sundays following volunteer work in our church nursery.  We catch up on every good, bad, and ugly.  Just another harmless gossip fest with tons of laughter and discussions about these men out here, commonly referred to as clowns by me. Reference: Just Dip Your Toe In .  This brunch journey will illustrate how important your inner circle is and its connection to your lifestyle.  What value are people adding to life?

This section of the blog will reveal societal stories that will have you reeling, guides to becoming a better you and personal recipes for your brunch cookbook.
