Welcome to this Wednesday morning booze-bash. Seems about right for a Wednesday, no?
And while you can sip on this tasty beverage any time of day, I am totally recommending it for a weekend brunch or breakfast. It's like a mimosa on steroids.
I'm also using this recipe to start a celebration of sorts.
A breakfast blog celebration!
While I know I've been a little absent from the blog world this summer, I actually have some exciting plans for the future of this blog. My posting schedule may be less frequent, but I'm definitely still here to stay! My freelance work has been piling up (hip! hip!) and if you follow me on Instagram you know I'm in the middle of shooting Angela's second cookbook. I'm still kind of in disbelief about it. But despite having less time to blog, I've been continuing to brainstorm new ideas for this space and the direction I want to take it.
You all know I am breakfast-obsessed. It's been my favorite meal of the day and my favorite meal to cook for others for as long as I can remember. Brunch parties are pretty much the best ever.
About 4-5 years ago I had the idea to write a breakfast cookbook. (This was well before the offer I received to write the doughnut cookbook.) I was passionate about the idea but knew I wanted to wait until I was more substantiated in the blog world before reaching for it. Soon after, the doughnut book came out of nowhere and the breakfast idea was put on hold.
About 1 1/2 years ago I revisited the idea and started writing a cookbook proposal. I sat on it for awhile. I edited it. I talked to an agent. I edited it again. I talked to another agent. I sent it to friends with very successful cookbooks for advice and opinions. I edited it again. I sent it to another agent. And then I had to come to the hard realization that this dream just wasn't happening. What I heard from all three agents, in one way or another, was that publishers just don't dig breakfast.
Um, how is this possible?
Apparently they have numbers on these types of things and breakfast books always undersell. Womp, womp. It was an uphill battle these agents were basically telling me to steer clear of. I'm not one to let people tell me I can't do something but at the same time I wanted to be realistic. I wanted this book to be BIG. Bigger than big. I wanted it to include everything BREAKFAST. It was going to be a very large project, that would take a very long time to complete, so I needed it to make sense in many regards. And if it didn't make sense to publishers, than I didn't want to force it.
So a few months ago I decided to shelve the project. The idea is still there. The passion is still there. However, the timing isn't right and maybe it never will be. I'm not trying to sound negative in any way, but not everything has to work out all of the time. I'm actually 100% at peace with how it played out. Of course I was bummed at first, after spending so much time dreaming about and working on that book. But my career has taken a turn in the direction I truly wanted it to go (focusing on freelance food photography), and I could not be any happier.
All this to say, since I am not writing a breakfast cookbook I've decided to focus the blog almost entirely on breakfast! You'll still see dinner, salad, soup, etc. recipes around here, but the majority will be geared towards breakfast.
And you know I'm talkin' more than oatmeal.
Although, you also know I love a good bowl of oats.
I cannot even tell you how freeing it feels to make this change!
Hence the celebration with this drink!
I hope you're as excited as I am about the future of Edible Perspective.
gluten-free, vegan // yields 2-4 servings
- 1, 750mL bottle rosé
- 3 cups chopped frozen peaches
- 2 cups halved frozen strawberries
Place ingredients in blender. (If using a small blender, make in 2 batches.) Turn on low, working to high, until fruit is fully blended. Serve immediately after making to get the "slushie" texture.
Notes: Experiment with different types of fruit! I like freezing fresh, ripe fruit for this recipe to get the most flavor. I used a fruity but dry rosé.
Feel free to join in the fun and tag your drinks! #drinkthesummer !
