New season brussels sprouts that were scrumptious pan fried with butter, garlic, oregano, cream and lemon juice mixed with gluten free pasta and topped with grilled pancetta and parmesan. My mother-in-law gave me this old copper pan and an electric copper kettle (they originally belonged to her parents!) and they are now happy on our shelves as a sign of food love and family history. And they’re not to be thrown out in any minimalist declutter sessions. :) +++ Sometimes I turn a weekend breakfast into a proper date at our outside table and then lure my husband out of bed with it! It’s a great way to treat him after a big week at work. Bacon oven baked in maple syrup, eggs, rocket and avocado with locally made onion relish, espresso for him, and water served in my much-loved teeny tiny French Duralex glasses. +++ A morning tea break for one with my homemade carrot & coconut muffin and Byron Bay Tea Company earl grey. The Fog Linen wood tea scoop is from Mr Kitly. Funny story, I originally transferred the tea to a nice jar that I had forgotten to sterilise so it now has a caramelised onion relish scent to it, oops!

    i wish i had more hand-me-downs – family history + practicality, excellent.
    i truly adore everything about your tea for one.
    but does the caramelised onion flavour work? lol

    Extra flavour to your earl grey tea now! I like that copper pan. Some things don’t deserve to get tossed out even when we’re hell-bent on decluttering :)

    And you know it’s true what they say about the way to a man’s heart.

    Taste, colour, touch and smell and sizzle sounds- a breakfast for all the senses! Delicious!

    Your brunch looks amazing and a great thing to get out of bed for! Your cooper pan looks fantastic too and it must be great to use too.
