This fancy dish can make a perfect brunch or lunch or dinner…

As weekend comes to an end I feel numb, this has been one feeling that’s consistent over the years. However, after the monday blues, I fall onto the weekly track and regains my vigor by Tuesday morning.

In North America, most of our conversations start with weather, glad that we have different seasons in their utmost beauty. We are having the beautiful Fall season now: leaves have changed its color from yellow to red, some have fallen early, some are still there and continues to mesmerize us. One of my favorite activities during Fall is clicking the beautiful view of Fall colors. Sharing a picture with you all:

I fancy fancy meals. Most of the times, fancy meals can be whipped up quickly without much effort. All you have to do is mix and match certain ingredients or dishes, plate them in an appealing way and serve. That’s what I did for Saturday brunch: made herb chicken, sautéed mushrooms and cherry tomatoes together along with sour cream, served them together and placed an over easy egg beside them along with a few cubes of feta cheese. Looked fancy and tasted yum!
