This week I successfully made the time to schedule the time to hang with some of my lady friends. Why is that so hard to do? They are very important to me and such a port in this sometimes stormy life; but damn if it isn’t next to impossible to sync up our schedules. On Sunday I am having my lady friends, along with their little crotch nuggets, over for brunch. This civilized and accepted vehicle for the earliest of day drinking is my favorite meal. Carbs, bacon, and booze – you can’t go wrong!
I plan on whipping up this easy scrambled egg recipe from Anthony Bourdain and visiting this legendary market for freshly baked croissants, ready made quiches. and organic fruit on the cheap. The offers of bottles of bubbly immediately poured in once the gathering was announced. You cannot have brunch without mimosas! However, one of my pals is preggers so I found a great mocktail recipe for Virgin Cucumber Mojitos that can be spiced up for those ladies who aren’t expecting. This drink is easy to make and stays well in your fridge if you have any left over (yeah cause that’s gonna happen). To make your own you will need:
One lime sliced
Juice of one lime
2 sprigs mint
1/4 cucumber, peeled and seeds removed
1 tablespoon honey
Toss the lime juice, mint, cucumber, 1/4 of a cup of the club soda, and honey into a blender and blend until smooth. Fill a hi-ball glass with ice, pour in some of the mixture. Add more club soda if you are going virgin. Add white rum if you are not.
Missing your girls? Invite them and their tots over. Have a drive-thru potluck welcoming such dishes as a dozen Krispy Kreme donuts and plates of Zaxby’s chicken tenders. Preparing eats for your lady time should not be hard work, getting you all together will be hard enough.
