Brunch

Ah, brunch! Like Stephen Fry’s ‘Dancercise’ it is a clever combination of two words. Despite all the fancy stuff we seem to be cooking these days, weekend brunch, with all its subtle combinations of baked beans, fish fingers, ‘surprisingly tasty’ quorn products, instant mash, mayonnaise, red sauce, brown sauce, and anything else which can be found in fridge and cupboard, has to be my favourite meal of the week.
