It's Sunday! In my yummilicious world, there are three givens that I adore about Sundays:
~~ SLEEPING IN! Rolling over in the morning and finding the love of my life lying next to me in bed. Not having his alarm clock making annoying buzzy noises at 5:15 a.m. once a week is beyond blissful!
Incidentally, I have no idea whose baby that is, but I secretly hope that the next time I open my front door, I find that sweet angel swaddled in a basket with a note that says, "take me in and love me forever". I think I'm addicted to those chubby arms and that sweet pouty lip... or maybe I'm just overly hormonal and waxing poetic because I'm going in for a hysterectomy on Tuesday. Bye-bye uterus. You've served me well. Now get lost.
~~ BRUNCH! Since we usually attend church services on Saturday night, Brian and I are able to stay lazy in bed for a while on Sunday and then treat ourselves with a wonderful late morning brunch. Nothing says HELLO SUNDAY like comfort food in my face. It's the WOO to the HOO and the piggy to my pork fat.
~~ SUNDAYS WITH JOY! Every Sunday for the past couple of months, a group of wonderful food bloggers and I have been creating delicious meals using recipes from Joy the Baker's latest cookbook, "100 Simple and Comforting Recipes". I adore everything about the book, right down to Joy's loverly face on the cover. She's just so sweet!
I think t's a wonderful coincidence that today's recipe for zucchini bacon and potato pancakes, which I adapted a bit from Joy's recipe, fits perfectly into the Sunday brunch category. Serve these beauties up with some over easy eggs and you've got yourself a double score bonus!! CHA-CHING!
So please do me a favor, won't you? Leave a comment below and tell me...what's YOUR favorite thing about Sundays?
Just an FYI - I won't have access to my computer while I'm in the hospital this week, but if all goes well, I should be home sometime on Thursday. I'll have another yummilicious recipe posted for you as soon as this old body allows me to get back into the kitchen. In the meantime, I'll make sure that someone is posting updates on my condition over on my Facebook fan page. I adore you for being a part of my world. Please come back and visit me again soon, ok?
Until we meet again, may your heart and stomach both be well fed, and may you be blessed with all things yummilicious! ~~ Becca
