Late nights are always hard to pull back from, sleep wise. After a series of them, I find myself waking up far far after noon most days I don’t work. Not only is this lazy and unhealthy and just encourages more late night and caffeine consumption, it also make it impossible to eat brunch on weekends. Even dim sum is usually wrapping up at 1 or 2pm, leaving us S.O.L.

I’ve combated the problem by¬† making brunch at home today. A plethora of fresh fruit and veg (including figs…from Costco!) and a visit to the farmer’s market yesterday have stocked the fridge and pantry.

I made some fruit salad, featuring the fresh figs, with a banana that was aging on the counter, some left over cut cantaloupe, peaches and plums. I didn’t have much for a traditional dressing, which is usually honey and citrus of some kind, but Mike suggested I use the super thick and rich Liberte yogurt we have. A quick Google later, and a batch of yogurt honey cinnamon dressing, with some mint from our patio garden thrown in.

We got some turkey and peahen eggs from Greens, Eggs and Ham at the City Centre farmer’s market Saturday. Turkey eggs are a bitch to crack into.

Amy gave us some banana bread last night, so I fried it up in a pan with some butter. This is my lame plating since I was too hungry to really take care with the photo.

    I remember eating Dim Sum when I was in Edmonton……yeah, boiled chicken feet. No thanks!
