Entertaining Again -- Brunch
To me brunch is breakfast with dessert so I always try to have breakfast foods and then a dessert. I'm hosting a bridal shower champagne brunch on Saturday and my menu is as follows:
Frittata (not sure what kind as yet but it will involve cheese, some vegetables and perhaps meat)
A hot curried fruit (as a nod to her Laotian roots)
corn madelines, lemon poppyseed madelines, orange rosemary madelines (because the bride's name is "Madeline"
Kir Royal for guests when they arrive (and ginger ale for the non drinking guests) -- Kir Royal because EVERYONE does mimosas!
Red velvet cupcakes (because that is one of the flavors of the wedding cake)
Before anyone says I need a vegetarian option, there are no vegetarians coming (unless they switched in the last couple of days) so I have no worries on that front.
Now off to polish silver, iron tablecloths and polish napkins. I'm still trying to decide how to seat people for brunch and if I need to hire wait staff to serve individually or if I make it a buffet.
I love brunches!
