Bryn Mawr has an epic brunch on the weekends. Before I even got to Bryn Mawr — while I was still at Tri-Co — I heard about Sunday brunch at Bryn Mawr and how people from all over the Tri-Co (Tri-College Consortium) would show up. And it was a great brunch, even worth getting up and moving by 1 (well, most/some weekends).
There was so much delicious food. There was a station for making eggs — I often made scrambled eggs with sautéed mushrooms, peppers, onions, and broccoli, as well as cheese, sometimes ham, tomatoes, maybe potatoes. It was excellent. Blintzes, and biscuits, and ham or bacon, and occasionally quiche, glorious potatoes (shredded, fried, hash browns).
I miss brunch at Bryn Mawr. Both in the sense of brunch foods and in the sense of being able to easily meet up with friends for food that we don’t have to make. Dining halls made eating easy — show up, eat, leave.
Part of this, perhaps, is simply me missing Bryn Mawr. I haven’t been back since I graduated in 2010. In that time, I have since exactly four Mawrtyrs (and two of them were last weekend at the Dar concert). I’m hoping to be back for May Day this year. Until then, perhaps I will just make brunch for myself tomorrow and think Mawrtyrish thoughts.
