One fact about me is that I love Brunch and everything it involves. This weekend, MK and I had my parents over for Brunch. When the thought of creating a menu enters my mind I can hardly think straight due to the excitement! Especially for my favorite meal. Along with what is pictured I also had chicken pesto crepes and dark chocolate, Brie, and balsamic strawberry sandwiches for dessert.
For starters, Caesar Salad Canape's and I cannot take total credit for this as the idea. A few weekends ago I went to an event for work to benefit Breast Cancer. It was a beautiful gathering and one of the appetizers they had were very similar to this. I immediately put it on the backburner to use and what a better time than Brunch?
Being that Valentine's Day is only five days away I thought of course we needed bacon but what we really needed was heart shaped bacon!
In my humble opinion I truly believe that Brunch must involve Quiche. The beautiful thing about this dish is that you can really clean out your fridge with it. In my case I made mine with Pancetta and Cheddar although the possibilities are endless.
Last but most certaily not least Bloody Mary's!! Arguably the best part of this meal. When I used to bartend back in the day, I would make tons of these but of course I had to make them the way the restarunt wanted me to. This was actually the first time I had made them "from scratch". Here is my recipe:
- -1 1/2 oz Vodka
- -3 oz Tomato Juice
- -1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
- -3 drops Tabasco sauce
- -salt (just a tad)
- -celery, lime, lemon (my favorite fixens)
- Add the ingredients in this order, shake, and pour over ice.
