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!
