Spring Equinox Brunch 21st March

I hope it will be good weather on Sunday...it's the start of Spring!

Ideas for the brunch:
Bucks Fizz
Aga made Underground muesli with whisky soaked sultanas, cranberries, cinnamon, pecans, almonds, linseeds, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds
Aga yoghurt
Aga compote de poire
Marmite or jam on toast
Home made Apple cinnamon danishes
Cafetieres of Douwe Egberts coffee
Pots of tea
Sunday papers
Music on the Sonos...
and whatever else takes my fancy!


  1. The Sunday papers sound tasty - do you marinade them first?

    I'd go for kedgeree.

    Blueberry pancakes?

  2. I think you could improve on the coffee there, Monmouth is still my favourite. And not that there's anything wrong with toast but crumpets or muffins always make it a bit more of an occasion for me, and it's marmalade season too ;) God I'm picky.

    All sounds great though, I hope my brunch on the Equinox is half as good, am suspecting that will not be the case.

  3. James I did pancakes last time...bit bored with them.

    Jones; I'm not a coffee geek but Douwe Egberts blends are good for commercial coffee and I've done a deal with them!
    Also did crumpets last time so doing the danishes this time. But basically I'll see how I feel on the day.
    I've never done muffins however.
    What are you doing on the equinox?

  4. Geek or no geek I like your coffee maker in the pic

  5. awww...that sounds lovely...with the sunshine it will be perfect! xxx

  6. I'm with you Patrick, I like the coffee maker too.I love toast in the mornings. Not had Kedgeree for some time. The whole thing sounds delicious. And if the sun is shinning what a winning combination.I'm tempted to do something myself for the family,lets get Spring/Summer off to a good start.

  7. I'm constantly impressed that no matter what the day of the year, you can find an occasion worth celebrating and better still, designing a meal for!

    Hope it goes well!

  8. Funny! I made a brunch item myself today and posted it!
