I had one of my favorite married couple pals over yesterday for a brunch. These two have known me for over 20yrs...truly scary because they can dish out serious dirt on me and it also means we're old! I made a wild mushroom fritatta, Mr. Lex fried a pound of bacon and we served endless mimosas. The last time I got together with these two we had a 8hr brunch. I told them this time it probably won't be eight hours because now I've got a little girl and unfortunately it wasn't eight hours.
It was close to NINE! They came over a little after noon and did not leave until almost 9. That's okay because it was raining, I love their company, it rained most of the day and they brought me a bottle of my favorite bourbon - how could I kick anyone out for that? Unfortunately I forgot to take a pick of how our day started but I can show you how it ended:
I'm also making great use of my little cocktail making book my husband picked up for me from a bargain bin. I used the bourbon (Bulleit) in an afternoon cocktail:
It's an Old Fashioned: Bourbon, sugar cube mashed in bitters and water and four cubes of ice. It knocked me on my ass. A sip of this and I immediately aged forty-five years.
Well I guess I needed a "grandpa" beverage to go with my cardigan.
I hope you are all enjoying your weekend!
