Today’s TAD was brunch + valentine making with my old pal Reine. Reine came over with her daughter Leda and I made brunch for my the whole crew. On the menu was eggs with tomatoes and chives and challah french toast with berries in an orange syrup. The berries in orange syrup was TAD worthy as I had never made anything like that before. I wished the syrup was a bit thicker but the recipe is below.
After we all had full tummies, the girls ran off to play and Reine and I had our own playtime. We made Valentines. A redacted version of mine is included in this post in case the recipient takes a look-see. Berries in Orange Syrup
1/4 cup fresh squeezed o.j.
1/2 cup superfine sugar
2 cups scant mixed fresh berries
Combine juice and sugar in a medium pan and bring to a boil over low heat until sugar has completely dissolved. Stir in berries. Turn off heat. Let cool for 10 minutes before serving.
