On Mother's Day my step daughter invited me along with my Mom for Sunday Brunch. We had a wonderful time as DD is a marvelous chef. Appetizers were both savory and sweet...basil, petite heirloom tomatoes & mozzarella cheese as well as a deliciously moist fruit bread. Cocktails were mimosa's with a choice of orange juice or grapefruit juice. I love grapefruit juice, but with my champagne I think I like OJ better.
As good as the appetizers were, the very best part was a new recipe called Real Man Quiche and real man or not this dish was very tasty, healthy, and satisfying.
We also had an unusual fennel, grapefruit and pear salad recipe from the Spark cookbook that was good,
but I liked DD's cucumber salad better as the dressing was light and refreshing.
It was a lovely relaxed day with beautiful flowers in a cute vase
as well as DD's fabulous coconut cake to end the meal. I am so blessed to be able to celebrate special holidays with my wonderful family.
