I always love the idea of going away for a romantic weekend with my hubby.
Even though we live alone (since we don’t have kids yet) and technically every weekend could feel like a mini-getaway, they usually don’t.
(When you’re in your own environment, there is always more work to be done, especially if you work from home. There’s always a load of laundry that I could throw in, a few quick dishes I could wash up, or a blog post or two that I could get a jump start on.)
Sometimes a change of scenery is the only thing that works when you want to take a little break.
That’s why the idea of going away holds such appeal; staying at a romantic bed and breakfast in the country, or at a chic boutique hotel with all the amenities in the city. No matter where the change of scenery is, a full breakfast spread – made by someone other than me, lol – is something I always look forward to.
A while ago, I did a round-up post of recipe ideas for Thanksgiving brunch. One of the recipes I included was Baked Eggs with Mushrooms and Parmesan from Kalyn’s Kitchen. I have been dying to make this dish since I first saw Kalyn’s lovely recipe, and I was excited to put my own spin on it.
Earthy mushrooms pair perfectly with Emmental cheese, and a few simple flavorings like salt, pepper, garlic, and thyme compliment the dish nicely. This is the sort of brunch that makes a weekend morning at home feel like you’re on vacation…especially if you share it with your sweetie.
