So welcome back to my kitchen my friends. Pull up a cozy chair and a warm blanket and join me a while on this Slow Sunday. Let me make you a steaming mug of chai tea or your favourite "joe" and a luscious fruit skewer with a citrus yogurt dip. Would you enjoy some old-fashioned cheese straws or a side of homemade sausage? Consider it done. Once again sleepy heads we have embraced S-l-o-w Sundays, a new feature here at More Than Burnt Toast.
Whenever the mood hits us we will highlight breakfast and brunch ideas that allow us to explore all that a leisurely morning can offer. In my home Sunday is the day for putting my feet up but depending on your schedule maybe you have Saturday or even a Wednesday to do exactly what you would like to do. No matter which Slow Day you can manage the day should be s-l-o-w, no rushing around, no big errands, just taking your time and mozying along. My idea of enjoying a Sunday morning is to have a warm cup of tea and a long and lovingly prepared breakfast. Whether I am entertaining family or friends or am going solo breakfast on the weekend is a highlight of the day. Any time spent in the kitchen is time well spent!
