Sun And Brunch

It is so lovely and sunny here, it just makes me so happy! The flowers are blooming...

and my herbs are growing. I even had a couple cloves of garlic in the kitchen that were starting to sprout so I planted them in here too. Hopefully they will do well!

I also got a hummingbird feeder to attract all the beautiful hummingbirds we have around here. It is really funny though, even the regular birds drink out of it. There is this big woodpecker that lands on it all awkwardly and eats to his heart's content. I will try to take a picture next time I see him!

I got a really awesome book used from the library recently. I love it because it is all Caribbean inspired food, and I have actually been to Tortola, the island that the restaurant is on! I loved it.

I decided to make the rum french toast today and it was delicious!

Here is the rum I used. Margaritaville baby!

So yummy!

And that was my day!


  1. Alia, your flowers are gorgeous!! And, oh my...rum french toast!! Sounds simply divine! :)

  4. That french toast looks soooo good! I have a love of banana and toast anyway.
