Pea Sup Eggs Canada 1

It’s March break here in Ontario and being a big ski family, for us that usually means a week at the cottage skiing! There really isn’t anything better than those Spring ski days. We wait all year for them. Warm, sunny days that make us feel closer to nature and happy to the core. We call them Blue Bird Days! Well, this year it’s warm alright, so warm that it’s raining and the snow has pretty well vanished. Which leaves us more excited for Easter! It’s early this year which could have meant a very wintery looking Spring holiday but luckily it looks like my favorite holiday will be as I imagined, full of colour and the hopeful anticipation of summer to come!

Breakfast on Christmas morning is almost as important as the turkey dinner that follows that night! Having the excitement and chaos of Santa’s arrival and madly opening gifts leaves everyone famished and always excited for the kind of breakfast they’d dream of every morning!

It’s Spring Break week here for the kids and to me that means the end to the long cold winter is almost tangible. Spring is the most amazing season to me as you start to watch everything awaken and come to life. Everyone just has a little extra wiggle in their walk, that boost of energy that a little Vitamin D gives us from the sun! So brunch this week reflects that in our vitamin rich spinach, egg and bright green colourful Quiche.
