I wish I could say I invented the concept of breakfast for lunch but alas I did not, brunch has been around since 1896 if you believe wikipedia. You can read a whole lot more about the origins of brunch right here and its an English word no less that the French refuse to accept so they say 'le grand petit dejeuner' or something like that meaning the 'big little breakfast.' I can tell you right now that it isnt "lupper" and that is a word that never got off the ground.
For me brunch happens when I get going on breakfast too late and I dont feel like preparing lunch foods and a typical brunch for me includes poached eggs.
Poached eggs with grits, extra special grits with provolone cheese, morel mushrooms and morel mushroom "broth" which is the soaking liquid that resulted from rehydrating the mushrooms.
Who can resist good and fresh free range eggs and cheesy grits, throw in some morel mushrooms and I am on a cloud.
This brunch was so good I would even consider it for lupper or even brinner.
