Since becoming an American, I've had to rely on my uber-American friends for support and guidance during this difficult time as I try to learn the ways of the American people...they have not let me down.
My roommate Bonnie kicked things off with a celebratory American brunch after I passed the citizenship test. The delish feast included a main course of bacon (and lots of it), breakfast strata with basil and tomatoes (seriously the best breakfast food ever) and fruit salad...Americans love fruit salad.

After feasting on as much bacon as humanly possible, we attacked the amazing desserts created by Nikole and Rebecca. I mean how American are these?!?! So impressed ladies so impressed. I was given a pop quiz about the cookie flag - for all you non-Americans there should be 13 stripes as Tom pointed out. Details details- it was amazing.
Nikole's creation mmmm cookie pizza
Not only did Rebecca run a half marathon that morning (woo!) she also made these amazing white chocolate dipped and blue sprinkled strawberries! Its so American I can hardly stand it...loooove! AND healthy because strawberries are fruit so win win.
I love the flags too- very patriotic
After all that food, I promptly went to my room in a food coma and took a three hour nap. Thank you to everyone who came to the American brunch- you guys are awesome!
