Weekend Entertaining & Brunching

Hope everyone had a great weekend!

As I mentioned last week, some friends arrived on Thursday night to stay with us and visit Orlando/go shopping. On Friday night we went out for some Korean BBQ and sushi which was delish. We cooked different meats on the grill in the middle of the table and enjoyed a variety of salads and sushi from the cold bar.

On Saturday, my guests went out shopping for the day so I took the free time to indulge in pure relaxation at home which consisted of catching up on all my shows, blogging, laundry and all that fun stuff.

On Sunday morning it was time for some brunch. We went to Spice downtown which has a really nice brunch menu along with half priced mimosas and blood marys. We ate on the patio and enjoyed the sunny weather and view of the lake. 

After brunch we walked around the lake and looked at the turtles and swans before heading to Sportstown because the guys insisted on playing some ping pong.

The rest of Sunday was relaxing. K and I grilled out at home for dinner and mentally prepared ourselves for the arrival of Monday. It was nice catching up with one of my best friends from high school and getting to know her boyfriend who is her perfect match. Now back to the grind!

Sunday Brunch: Pineapple Mimosas

I'm a huge fan of brunch on Sundays and mimosas are often a staple. The thing is, I'm not a fan of orange juice so I started experimenting with other juices and pineapple juice has become one of my favorites. Top it off with a strawberry or blueberries and you're all set with a delicious and refreshing brunch beverage!

I fill each glass half way with champagne and the remainder with juice of your choice and then garnish with your favorite fruits.

Tuesday's Recipe Swap will resume next week. I hope everyone enjoyed their Christmas break and the holiday season!!
