Safe Select Family Sundays: Sunday Brunch

  

Looking for something fun to do with your family this weekend? Maybe this month's edition of Family Sundays can bring back the fun in weekend family bondings.

As the early morning sun gently streams through your curtains, you and your family embark on a heartwarming Sunday tradition. Together, you gather in the cozy kitchen, savoring the joy of preparing a delicious brunch and creating lasting memories that fill your home with love.

Embracing the Tradition

Sunday mornings hold a certain magic, don't they? It's that one day of the week where time slows down, and you can savor the moments. It's a day for relaxation, reflection, and, most importantly, togetherness. So why not make it even more special with a delightful family brunch?

As you gather around the kitchen island, each family member takes on a role. There's the designated breakfast smoothie barista, the omelette expert, the fruit salad artist, and the main course chef.

On the Brunch Menu:

Tropical Green Smoothie: 

Gather your family around the kitchen counter for a tropical green smoothie adventure. It's a refreshing and nutritious start to your brunch that everyone can participate in.

  • Ingredients: Grab a bunch of fresh spinach, a ripe banana, a juicy mango (all available on Safe Select!), and a bottle of coconut water.
  • Preparation: Let each family member take turns adding these vibrant ingredients to the blender. It's a colorful sight!
  • Blend Together: Fire up the blender and watch the magic happen. The vibrant green smoothie will emerge, blending the flavors of spinach, sweetness of banana, tang of mango, and the tropical essence of coconut water.
  • Pour and Sip: After blending, pour the smoothie into glasses. Hand them out to your loved ones, and raise a toast to a healthy start.

 

Veggie Scramble: 

Next up, it's time to create a delicious veggie scramble. Safe Select's palengke fresh produce will be the star of this show, and everyone can be part of the culinary excitement.

  • Ingredients: You'll need Safe Select's freshly sourced produce such as bell peppers, onions, spinach, and your preferred herbs like thyme and paprika. Prepare enough eggs to feed your family. 
  • Preparation: Assign tasks to family members—someone can chop the colorful bell peppers, another can slice the onions, and someone can wash the fresh spinach.
  • Scramble Together: Heat a pan, add a touch of oil, and sauté the bell peppers, onions, and spinach. Then, the egg-cracking extravaganza begins! Crack the eggs into a bowl and whisk them.
  • Season to Perfection: Sprinkle in the herbs and spices, watching the colors and flavors come to life.
  • Serve with Love: Scoop the delicious scramble onto plates and serve it up hot. It's a hearty brunch dish made with a lot of love and teamwork.

 

Chicken Tocino with Garlic Fried Rice: 

Try out our take on this classic breakfast dish –

  • Ingredients: You'll need Safe Select PH's tender chicken thigh fillets, calamansi, garlic, and dinorado rice. From your pantry, prepare your preferred brand of soy sauce. For a side, prepare some pickled papaya (atchara).
  • Marinate and Caramelize: Marinate the chicken in a flavorful mixture of soy sauce, calamansi juice, and minced garlic. Assign one person to pan-fry until the chicken caramelizes into a sweet and savory delight.
  • Fry the Rice: While the chicken sizzles, get your family involved in frying the garlic fried rice. It's all about the fragrant aroma of garlic infusing the rice.
  • Set the Table: Lay out the dishes, place the tocino on a platter, and arrange the garlic fried rice in a big bowl. Don't forget the pickled papaya for a tangy twist!
  • Feast Together: Gather around the dining table, share stories of Filipino cuisine, and enjoy this delightful twist on a classic breakfast. 

 

Fresh Fruit Parfait: 

Wrap up your family brunch on a sweet note with a Fresh Fruit Parfait. It's a delightful dessert that's as fun to assemble as it is to eat.

  • Ingredients: Pick Safe Select's seasonal fruits, granola, and add in your favorite yogurt.
  • Layer with Love: Provide clear glasses or bowls and let each family member take turns layering the ingredients. Start with a spoonful of yogurt, then add a layer of colorful fruits, and sprinkle granola on top.
  • Repeat the Layers: Keep repeating the layers until your glasses are filled with a beautiful, tasty mosaic.
  • Garnish: Top it off with a sprig of mint or a drizzle of honey for an extra touch of sweetness.
  • Savor Together: Dig in with spoons and savor the combination of creamy yogurt, fresh fruits, and the delightful crunch of granola. It's a sweet ending to your family brunch adventure!

Bringing the Family Together

What makes Safe Select Family Sunday Brunch truly special isn't just the delicious food—it's the togetherness it inspires. As you cook and eat, you create memories. You share stories and laughter. You strengthen bonds that will last a lifetime.

Around the brunch table, we suggest talking about the week that was and the week ahead. Celebrate small victories and offer support during challenges. It's a time for open hearts and listening ears.

So, if you're looking for something fun to do with your family this weekend, consider starting your own Sunday brunch tradition. Let it be a time of love, laughter, and, of course, fantastic food. Because, in the end, it's not just about the brunch—it's about the love that goes into every bite and the memories that fill every moment!
