Sometimes, it's not about what you're eating, but who you're sharing it with.
During the week, the boy does Tai Kwon Do a few nights, and we have Dog School one night, and Dog Play Group one night, and then on the weekends the boy games with his friends, and I have my things, and although we live together being married and all, everything we have to do sometimes gets in the way of quality time together. To remedy this somewhat, we started a Sunday brunch routine.
First it was just I'd make us a nice late breakfast/brunchy thing on Sundays (I'll have to write down my recipe for Tofu McMegans before MoFo is done. It's killer), and sit and talk, and eat things with maple syrup, and then he'd go about his day, and I'd go about mine. Our routine is now extended to take the dog to the park to play with his friends for an hour or so, THEN come home and have brunch together. It's really nice, I highly recommend it.
This week we had french toast and soyboy sausages and fresh pineapple. I use the french toast recipe from Vegan with a Vengeance, but I jazz it up by adding some brown sugar, vanilla extract, and cinnamon to the batter. It's great with locally made whole wheat bread, and fried up in a generous amount of earth balance, topped with some maple syrup. Deliciousness is evidenced below:
And if that isn't enough to give you the warm fuzzies, here's another picture of Hamilton. This was taken back in the spring, when he still had cankles. Man I miss those cankles.
