Better late than never. I’m a little behind on my posts. I still have a pic of an Easter cake that I have not posted yet. Working my way backwards.
I always plan on taking photos to chronicle my shenanigans in the kitchen. On the day of the event I end up rushing around trying to get everything done. Taking photos usually falls far down on the list of priorities. It’s hard to stop a group of people from devouring the food in front of them when you are trying to photograph the food. This was the best I could do before the kitchen was overrun.
On the table: fruit salad, assorted muffins, Tastefully Simple’s Perfect Parmesan Biscuit Mix ( mixed w/sharp cheddar cheese and a tablespoon of minced parsley) served with Sweet Pepper Jalapeno Jam, chocolate chip poundcake and Jewish apple cake.
The highlight of my brunch menu never made it to the table or in front of the camera. My family was too hungry and I was too rushed to hold them off so that I could get it all photo ready. What was on the rest of the menu? French toast casserole, quiche, slow cooked ribs and roasted potatoes. The French toast is by far the favorite part of the meal for all of my guests. The runner up is probably the quiche followed by the slow cooked ribs or the slow cooked bbq chicken I occasionally rotate into the menu.
We sipped on champagne with a “splash” of pomegranate juice. I just recently “discovered” pomegranate juice. I’m now officially a big fan.
