Last Minute Brunch Menu
A last minute brunch…
PhillyBoy has an incredible group of friends. No matter how difficult the task may be, they never miss an important event. Two of his (our) friends were in town from Boston, and last minute at Tory & Anita’s wedding we decided to invite them over for brunch. Sunday morning, with a Bacardi-diet headache, I dragged myself out of bed and headed to Whole Foods. Too bad I didn’t look in the mirror before I left. I still had the evening’s eye makeup on. Anyway, I put together a simple brunch with lots of colors and flavors, and tried to make sure there would be something for everyone. Our guests brought us some decadent pastries, which nicely rounded out the meal. I declared it a special occasion and had some of a chocolate croissant.
Hosting friends for a meal last minute can be even more fun than planning ahead. There is no pressure, and you get to have fun in the kitchen while keeping the menu light and easy.

HOSTESS TIP: Always have your house ready for guests. You don’t want to have to spend more than 10 minutes making your home look great. That means always making sure your floors & counters are clean, table is ready for setting, and bathrooms don’t need more than a lit candle and fresh hand towel. Spend those 10 minutes putting away the every day clutter and your home is ready for anyone who comes through the door.
