Today is Wednesday which means the last items since I purchased my groceries the same day last week. This means light meals before the weekend dine out. This brunch is a short cut of mine avoiding extra work for both breakfast and lunch by combining them into one meal. At the same time, I would like to indulge in a simple meal.
This is so easy to do. Do not be put off by all directions; yes, it has a lot of component to prepare ahead but you could do them a day ahead and as an added bonus you could always use the leftover salsa in many dishes.
