I heart brunch

I cannot tell you how much I love brunch.  In my ideal dream world I would wake up, put on a pretty dress and ride my bike to the nearest cafe with my dogs in tow for a mean eggs benedict with french toast.  Brunch would be followed by some people watching, shopping with girlfriends, then picking up a few groceries for dinner at the local farmers market, and ending the day with a nice glass of wine snuggling in front of the t.v. .  Too bad that in my real life, I am constantly in a mad rush to choke down a peanut butter and honey bagel and scoop up a Starbucks latte on my way to school.  I guess i'll save my dream world for the weekends.  

The picture above is my attempt to create brunch for myself for a mid-week "pick-me-up".  It is toasted brioche with garlic mustard aioli, topped with turkey bacon, a fried egg, and a sprinkle of fresh basil.  The cherry tomatoes are topped with balsamic vinegar glaze and fresh basil.  

My sister is coming to visit me this weekend, so I have an excuse to indulge!
