If you’re lucky, once in a blue moon you will find yourself free on a Sunday morning to brunch with your mom-friends, your extended family or even possibly just your husband! Sunday being the new Saturday, here are a few things to keep in mind to optimize your brunch experience.
1. Endless Bubbles is a popular feature.
Don’t even waste precious time doing the math on a cost/benefit analysis, just say YES to unlimited champagne, mimosas and/or bellinis. You’ll rarely regret it, as long as you aren’t on childcare duty for the foreseeable future.
2. Chicken & Waffles
If chicken and waffles is on the menu, order it. Few entrees so perfectly blend breakfast and lunch in a miasma of maple syrup.
Lobster is the only exception to rule #2. If there’s a Lobster Benedict or Lobster Grilled Cheese available, you have a difficult decision ahead of you and the struggle is REAL, y’all. You may want to consider which side of noon you’re sitting on. You may not. Can we make lobster and waffles a thing?
If you’re in weight watchers, you’re in luck, because on brunch days you can forget about breakfast and dinner and eat and drink all 26 points in one indulgent bacchanalia of a meal.
5. Don’t count booze points.
There. I said it. Drink up, the bubbles cancel out the points! (Just kidding!) But seriously, enjoy yourself! Don’t beat yourself up over calories and what-not. You have to be able to laugh at yourself once in awhile, to keep things in perspective.
