Last Monday morning, Jason and I did brunch at home in style. I’d made a smokey sausage and bean casserole for dinner the night before, so in the morning we heated up the leftovers, cracked in a few eggs, and baked it until the whites were soft-set and the yolks still creamy. We topped it off with a little grated cheddar, and ate it with plenty of fresh coffee and orange juice on the side.

We went straight out walking with Teddy afterwards, and I kept saying to Jason ‘my stomach feels so happy’!  You know that feeling? Like your insides are smiling because you’ve eaten just enough of something really delicious to be full and energised and sated, but not over-stuffed, and feel completely ready to take on the day. It’s my favourite feeling, I think.

Oh, if only we could press pause during the holidays, and enjoy delicious moments for as long we wanted!

    Ohhh Rosie, how I wish we were a household of a) proper cooked teas and, b) leftovers for brunch! Sadly, mornings are more of a stressful affair in our house, with no time for brunch. Assuming we had anything to heat up, that is.

    Can I come and stay with you until I learn to be a proper grown up?! x

    I’m not a brunch kind of girl – I need food first thing or my belly, and body as whole, is one unhappy bunny! I’d love to know the recipe of the casserole though.
    Happy Monday – here’s a wonderful week!

    This sounds yummy! Brunch is definitely my favourite meal of the day, if only life didn’t always come in the way of it. Guess for now I’ll have to stick to cereal for breakfast (or until my exams are over at least)

    I love brunch, be it home cooked or enjoyed elsewhere!
    Looks so delicious, and a great way to use leftovers as well, especially since I hate wasting food.

    I can’t believe you made this! It looks like you went to a delicious and trendy brunch bar. I’ll have to steal this idea for my boyfriend, I’m afraid ;)
