Sunday Brunch: Mimosa and Orangeade Recipe

Hello, dolls!!! 🙂 Happy Sunday!!! Aaaah what a great Sunday. So how do I begin about my amazing day? Daylight savings — it means two things for me, first – it won’t be dark at 5PM anymore, second – my parents will not be confused about calculating the time difference anymore. I woke up today feeling like a I ran a marathon for 12 hours yesterday, I was crazy exhausted! Saturdays at work now is the busiest.I got out of bed pretty late, I was exhausted and instead of hating myself for it I talked to my sister, cause who else could make me feel better about feeling a little irresponsible? haha. One of the things that I looked forward to today is my date with Lovely, which was of course, amazing.

** So obviously, I was not able to publish this on Sunday so maybe today we can pretend that it’s still Sunday haha

In the perfect world,my Sundays will be welcomed with a delicious brunch after mass with family. A little quality time with friends in between dinner and having deep conversations with the people I love.

aaah, brunch. I love brunch way too much.

 A and I fell in love with the orange limeade that we had at the Farmer’s Market.

Thanks to my amazing Mom-in-Law, she bought us a citrus juicer so we can make our orange limeade anytime 😉

Rianna’s Orangeade Recipe

1 cup freshly squeezed oranges

1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemons

1/3 cup agave (or sugar)

1 cup water

You may adjust the quantity of each ingredient to you liking but I am kind of a purist and prefer this drink with less water. You may also substitite agave for honey or sugar, you might have to add more water if you use sugar though since oranges are already sweet.

Being the self conscious me, we used agave instead of white sugar as our sweetener. DELISH!!!

Remember the orangeade recipe I shared above? Mix equal parts of orangeade and champagne and you’ll have the best mimosa! 😉

Took a little break from our #WifeDuties on the first Sunday of the year to have delicious brunch at Cafe Deluxe.

It took us an hour to get to Gaithersburg, so we were all starving when we got there.

Grizelle, who worked there before, suggested that we try one of the crispy thin housemade flatbreads for our appetizer.

apple, brie, melted leeks,and candied walnuts — YUMMS!

I had a hard time in choosing what to get… I was craving for eggs benedict, but the ham and gruyere omelette sounded so good at that time especially because it has been a while since I had an omelette with meat so yeah…I decided to give myself a little treat

I also wanted to get biscuits (cause I am a biscuit freak!). I am so happy that my omelette came with a biscuit!

I love lunch dates at home with A. The short time that we spend in cooking before we go to work definitely contributes to me having a great day.

We like to cook quick meals for lunch to save us time for all the things that we have to accomplish all day.
