Saturday Morning 2.23.13

Wynn’s birthday was yesterday, so I made a yummy birthday brunch for us. And, I discovered a new easy recipe in the process.

The menu: Maui grown coffee (from my recent trip), campari tomatoes and tangerine slices with a balsamic reduction, French vanilla custard, and fresh strawberries

Confession: The French vanilla custard started out as spinach quiche. The plan changed when I grabbed the French vanilla half and half instead of the regular stuff on accident.

New (EASY!) recipe: Preheat oven to 350 and grease a 9″ glass pie pan. Whisk together seven eggs, one cup cake flour, and one cup French vanilla creamer (I used Organic Valley French Vanilla Half and Half). Pour in pie plate, bake for 35-40 minutes, slice, and serve warm or at room temp. Voila! Temporary crisis averted, and new great recipe created in the process.

Laura spent her morning curled up with a homemade latte and her favorite magazine, Southern Living (it’s the favorite of all of us!) She loves making lattes and tea because she LOVES her fantastic collection of adorable, vintage tea cups (courtesy of TJ Maxx — another favorite of ours, we love a good deal).

Jeanne spent her morning relaxing in front of the fire at her wonderful lake house on Lake Hartwell, South Carolina. (OK, so it wasn’t all relaxing — there was a water leak, a security alarm issue, and all the chaos that comes with those things. At least she can laugh about it.)

Sasha was the only one of us who had a productive morning. After a healthy breakfast of egg whites and berries, she set to painting her bathrooms. I’ve also done a lot of painting lately, and we’re here to tell you — there is NO other way than to use a high quality paint + primer combination. A second coat is hardly needed.
