Sunday mornings almost always mean “omelets and cappuccino a la dad”. He has been the Sunday Morning Breakfast Chef for as long as I can remember and always makes something special and delicious. One year he got a Belgian waffle iron, and I remember our Sunday Special was waffles with strawberries and whipped cream for months! He is busy working all week, and I love that he takes the time and thought to share his creations with us on the weekends.
In honor of Easter today’s omelet featured: ham, swiss cheese, asparagus, mushrooms and tomato topped with hot sauce and cracked black pepper. I usually have toast but just stuck with some orange juice, and waited for course two: carrot cake muffin, Holiday Biscotti and cappuccino.
Starbucks, WATCH OUT! My dad makes one mean cappuccino! I mean, just check out that foam! It was delicious (THANKS DAD!) and went perfectly with the crunchy biscotti! I was pleasantly surprised at how well the carrot cake muffins turned out. I literally threw a bunch of things together and just hoped that it would work. I wrote the recipe down, so I will have to post it soon! My mom raved at the moist texture and balance of flavor. YAY! The ultimate compliment is my mom’s approval! Check out the inside:
**Side Note: This muffin was packed with raisins, but the way I cut it you can barely tell! SO moist!**
After breakfast my mom surprised me with an Easter basket! Yes, I am 22 years old, and NO I am not too old for bunny shaped chocolate. She included pastel colored Peanut M&Ms, chocolate eggs, a solid chocolate rabbit and an almond chocolate rabbit. My mom knows my sweet tooth and nut addiction all too well. I love that she put so much thought into this! Cupcakes and cookies are in the oven and our house smells phenomenal. I miss baking so much, I really need to do it more frequently!
Have A Fantastic Day of Rest,
