Can every year be one where the Super Bowl, Lunar New Year, and Mardi Gras fall three days in a row? I have had (1) pizza, (2) wings, (3) a majority share in about four different party-sized bags of chips, (4) dumplings, (5) noodles, and (6) pancakes in the last 72 hours. I feel like this super nutritious line-up of February holidays could really only have been better if Valentine’s Day rounded it off today. But it is this Sunday, so that’s pretty much just as good. (And I already got a head start on the chocolate. So we can add that as (7) on the list.)
I am generally of the mind that breakfast-in-bed needs no holiday, but in honor of V-Day, or Galentine’s Day, or just the weekend, this is just a little post to share a couple of breakfast-in-bed snaps from here and there:
- A super easy poached pear baked oatmeal up on West Elm today! It’s based on this oatmeal raisin cookie version from last winter, and it’s been my go-to all fall and winter, especially when I have leftover poached pears to use up.
- Kabocha French toast from a few months back on Urban Outfitters (in case you still have errant frozen pumpkin in your freezer like I do?)
- And just in case you’re feeling something savory, a bacon and cheese-stuffed French toast from the blog last year.
We haven’t made any plans for Sunday yet, but I’m mulling over making at least one of these. Or all of these? And then I will detox.
What are your plans this weekend? B2 and I have a little bit of a hectic February ahead of us, so I’m taking a teensy blog-brb for the rest of this month. If you like, I’ll still be on my slowly-less-foreign Snapchat at tworedbowls, or over at Instagram, but in the meantime — happy Year of the Monkey, and Mardi Gras, and Super Bowl hangover, and Valentine’s Day! Hope you’re all staying warm and cozy in this late-winter stretch. I’ll see you in a couple weeks in March! (And then it’ll be almost spring!)
