In celebration of two whole years of being not dead yet, I will host brunch at my place on Saturday, August 25 (two years and one day after my release from the hospital), starting at 10:00 a.m. Come by, hang out, help me celebrate what all involved tell me is a remarkable recovery. There will be pancakes, bacon, sausage, ham, and of course coffee [edit: And Scones!]*. If you'd like to bring something, that would be nice but by no means necessary; juice, fruit, and baked goods will be especially welcome. Someone who both likes and is good at the various things people do with eggs and a skillet (an area where my skills are at best remedial) would be welcome to take over a corner of the kitchen and practice their craft.
Please feel free to pass this announcement along to anyone you think may be interested. If you don't know where I live these days (which is most of you), send me mail for directions. If you do know where I live, please send me mail or leave a comment here to let me know you're coming; it will help me plan.
Those of you who remember Zocalo brunches will note that I did not mention scones. Improbable though this may seem, my Kitchanaid mixer has successfully hidden itself in storage. I will make one more effort to find it in the next two weeks, and if I do there will be scones. But I'm not going to let its disappearance keep me from hosting a brunch any longer. Coraline has generously offered to lend me her Kitchenaid, so there will be scones whether or not I can find mine!
