With the hottest part of the year nearly behind us, I’m looking forward to moving outdoors a little more often. I can’t wait to start using the fire pit, lounging out back, and just generally lingering out of doors.
Today I’m bringing you some inspiration for future casual weekend brunches that I plan on having once the weather cools down. Enjoy!
If I’m planning on spending the better part of my morning out back (and I am), it has to be cozy and relaxed. I love the idea of a lush, vine-covered patio, lounge seating with comfy cushions, and colorful textiles.
For a laid back brunch that’s conducive to grazing, go for an array of dishes, sweet and savory. And of course, a gigantic pot of coffee.
This tuna salad is a delicious spin on the classic from bon appetit via Fedish.
This japanese vegetable pancake is to die for. I first tasted it at Xiao Bao Biscuit on my honeymoon in Charleston and my husband and I couldn’t stop talking about it. So we tracked down a similar recipe at smittenkitchen.com and have made it several times since then. Great brunch food!
Of course I’m thinking about the outfit!
