Saturday Brunch

Tuesday, January 26th, 2010

Good Morning, Darlings!

This past Saturday I had promised to teach our darling Chioke how to make biscuits and sausage gravy. I thought this was the perfect opportunity to throw a little get together.

Now usually, sausage gravy and biscuits sounds like a down home kind of meal. But I decided to amp up the glamour.  There would be 7 of  us at brunch and I wanted a very special table setting. First stop, the State Farmer’s market to see the flower lady. The roses there start at $9.99 for 2 dozen and they are really beautiful.  She was having a “buy two and get one bunch free” deal that I could just not say no to. I ended up with 2 bunches of yellow roses and one bunch of a very, very, pale yellow roses.  So total roses – 6 dozen. Cost – $27.50. The “wow” effect on my friends – priceless.
