Holiday Brunch: The Menu

Holiday Brunch: The Menu

Wow…we already have over 20 RSVPs for the annual holiday brunch this weekend. How exciting!

I think I’ve assembled a menu to feed everyone without undue stress. Most of this can be either set-out as is or prepared in advance to be thrown in the oven the morning of the party. I’ll just need to run around town a bit on Friday and Saturday to get the last supplies:

  • Smoked duck from Willie Bird in Sonoma.
  • Honey ham from from local corned-meats expert Roberts
  • Truffle mustard
  • Crunchy warm rolls from Acme bakery with butter and jam
  • Skewers of buttered tiny yellow potatoes topped with Neiman Ranch bacon
  • Savory (vegetarian) bread pudding with arugula and Gruyรจre.
  • Fresh fruit
  • Pear frangipane tarts straight from France via Trader Joe’s
  • Coffee
  • Spiced cider
  • Pomegranite kir royale cocktails
Am I missing anything key? Aside from green vegetables, which are not invited to the party ๐Ÿ™‚

    Sounds delicious! Perhaps a chocolate option? Little truffles or brownie bites?

    Mmmmm, that sounds incredible! I love the ideas for truffle mustard and pomengranate kir royale…

    Arugula in the bread pudding sounds like a green veggie to me! Have fun. Sounds divine!

    Do you want me to pick up the rolls at Acme? The actual bakery is right by my house. I can grab them on the way…let me know… ๐Ÿ™‚

    Oh Susan! You're too generous! I was going to get 8 or 9 pain epi loaves for the party. Is that too much to handle? I'll pay you back!

    Not too much at all. I'll take care of it! See you Sunday w/ loaves in hand! ๐Ÿ™‚
