Last Sunday we had our dear friends Dan and Cat over for lunch. I had so much fun planning the menu!! I haven't made brunch in forever. We had:
  1. Orange juice
  2. Bacon Roll-ups
  3. Zesty Compote
  4. Very Moist Banana Nut Bread
  5. The Ultimate Quiche
  6. Spinach, Pear and Walnut Salad
The Bacon Roll-Ups and Zesty Compote were in one of our Colorado B&B cookbooks. So yummy! The banana bread recipe was from Recipezaar. It was very moist and tasty. Ralph had been craving banana bread and was quite excited to have it. The quiche was from my Causing a Stir cookbook. The salad was just what it sounds like with an olive oil and balsamic vinegar dressing. I had so much fun planning the menu and putting it all together! It was neat putting my mind to creating a different kind of meal than usual. Dinner menus have gotten a little routine. I think it would be fun to start entertaining at different times of day so that I can work on other types of menus (e.g. lunch, tea, dessert, etc). What is your favorite way/meal to entertain?

These are some pics of Nugget from this weekend. We were supposed to go meet our new nephew, Auggie, but the flu had struck their household. Since we were all dressed with a packed diaper bag in the car, Nugget's MN grandparents suggested we take her to see her OH grandparents. Looks like the visit was enjoyed by all!
