Halloween Themed Brunch

I think I’ve raved about brunch before but I can’t help but bring it up again. Another excuse to have breakfast food but a little later in the day? Yes please! Every month my boyfriend’s family rotates houses on brunch. Now that we have our own place, our cute apartment got added to the rotation and we got the month of October. What a perfect opportunity to make a Halloween themed brunch! I’ll post the recipes in the coming days so make sure to keep coming back to see the menu unveiled. Today’s focus is the decorations because every good Halloween party needs the right decorations.

Warning though: I am not a person who loves the frightening side of Halloween… AT ALL. My ideal level of scary is watching “It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown” and only listening to the scary movie theme songs with all the lights on. I know, I have the taste of a 5 year old in Halloween scares and I am almost 26! Thankfully, for my sake, our brunch was a mellow take on Halloween decorations.

Brunch Time – Family Time

Since my boyfriend and I moved in together, we have made a tradition with his family where we rotate brunch once a month at the three houses. This month was our turn and I went a little crazy with food (Hello it involves breakfast food so you knew I would haha). So much so that a majority of my Saturday was spent preparing for Sunday’s brunch. Check out what we made below and comment which treat you would like the recipe for!

Waffle Love

“We have to remember what’s important in life: friends, waffles, and work. Or waffles, friends, work. But work has to come third.” – Leslie Knope from the show Parks and Recreation. This is really about the truest quote that I have seen recently. Work is important, yes but friends and well… food are the true zest of life. My friends and family are my backbone and support me in every decision (good or bad) that I have made. The perfect combination is a brunch or a breakfast with those people I care so much about. Today, I made my boyfriend some waffles and thought of this quote. I hope you all enjoy work but remember what should come first: Friends and Waffles!

Baked Grapefruit

I’ve been having a major craving for grapefruit this week. When I was a kid and grapefruit was on the menu, I would load it with a mountain of sugar to cut into the bitterness. I try to avoid that much sugar now that I’m older so the best way to bring out the natural sweetness is to bake it. With a few spices to add even more flavor, this baked grapefruit dish is sure to cut into that craving with the perfect mix of sweet and tart. Also, with the high vitamin C content in grapefruit it’s good for complexion. Yes please to good skin by the pool this summer!
