Grove Square Sip and Savor Party
With the holiday season rolling in, weekends are filling up already. Wedding season is giving way to family get-togethers, so I wanted to get in a nice, lazy, Saturday morning brunch in before the madness of turkey, menorahs, and mall Santas hit.
For me, brunches are best when everything is ready to go. The last thing I want to do is be in the kitchen, flipping pancakes, while everyone else is sipping coffee and socializing.
And that's saying something, because I really love pancakes.
I was lucky enough to win a Grove Square Sip and Savor party from HouseParty.com . We received over 48 Keurig cups of various cocoas, coffees, and cappucinos. All I had to do was supply the Keurig and other treats and boom! Instant brunch.
I did bake up a storm... Pumpkin muffins, challah bread filled with apple cranberry butter, fruit, mini frittatas, and yogurt. Lazy, perfect, and caffeinated.
Sometimes, there's nothing better when it's getting chilly than just sitting, enjoying the Saturday sunlight, and curling up with a hot beverage. The peppermint cocoa was definitely the biggest hit!
We even had a little visitor!
Cheers to great coffee, friendship, and simple Saturdays!
