Today’s grocery list is brought to you by the letter Easter. Also the letter Brunch. Also maybe the letter Kewt.
Growing up the food on easter was always the same because it was the food we had at church after getting up at the crack of dawn. There would be a bunch of fruit, cut up costco muffins, and tables of egg casseroles that everyone had the same recipe for. They were all just layers of white sandwich bread slices, shredded cheese and meat soaked in eggs overnight and baked while you got ready for Jesus. The recipe was actually printed and handed out the week before to make sure everyone was on board.
I remember my last year at home I asked my mom if I could make one of them and she said yes because that’s obviously less work for her and I went full on Giada minus the boobs. There was a bunch of vegetables, good Italian sausage, and cubes of old french bread; I felt like such a badass. I walked into the church like I was holding a baby diamond and took it to the kitchen and ripped off the aluminum foil like a dramatic bitch but nobody really paid attention because Jesus was more important than the strata.
Here’s to having a happy kewt easter brunch and hoping you have some impressive baby diamonds.
ALSO! I’m over on the Food & Wine blog with a fun interview where I talk nonsense and Beyonce. Check it out!
I actually made Tracy’s rhubarb coffee cake the other night for dessert and breakfast and then dessert again and then maybe breakfast again. It’s insanely good and could probably translate well into muffins if you’re into that sort of thing. (via Shutterbean)
Megan has some fabulous insta-recipes from her instagram feed up and one of them involves some coconut oil quinoa granola that would be super good with everything. I may or may not have a bunch of bulk foods bags on my counter waiting to make it. (via Take a Megabite)
Caboosing the list is a twofer from Sarah with flourless chocolate cake with batheworthy nutella mousse aaaand hot cross doughnuts. I will always choose the brunch that serves me chocolate cake. (via The Sugar Hit)
For music this week we have an slightly old but not really song from Vampire Weekend from their last album and I don’t know why I haven’t put it on here. The video’s super fun and it’s the perfect mid brunch dance break, especially after one or three mimosas.
