My parents are having some friends over for brunch today and that makes we very happy.
First of all we’re talking brunch – my all time favourite meal. I know I use to say my favorite is breakfast, but brunch is actually way better. It’s breakfast – but you can eat a lot more since it is both breakfast and lunch. Win!
But that is not what makes this Sunday morning special – you can have brunch any Sunday. No, what really makes today special is, that I got to make the entire brunch. My parents have a lot of plans this weekend whereas I (for once) have a pretty quiet weekend. So my mom asked if I’d like to make the brunch, so that she and my dad didn’t have to think of it. Of course I’d like to do that, but what made the deal even better was that my mom said I’d get paid for the job (since I have to spend a lot of time cooking). I don’t get an insane amount of money, but still I’m very happy about it. It is my first paid cooking job!
I wanted to make a special brunch. Just not the usual eggs-and-bakon-brunch. No, something more sophisticated (: Here’s what I made:
I managed to take some photos of the food before the brunch:
The croissants don’t really look like the once at Top With Cinnamon (unfortunately mine aren’t as pretty), but they tasted amazing!
And now for the yoghurt cups:
Remember I told about our cherry tree and how it was packed with cherries this summer? We had so many cherries I had to freeze a lot of them. For these lovely yoghurt cups I used a bag of those cherries. It was like eating summer again.
