(taken by jess)
this week i’ve been planning and getting ready for my first try at a secret restaurant style brunch at my house.
somehow it ended up being 17 people and somehow it wasn’t a disaster. I had to borrow several chairs and several forks from several people but it turned out.
i’m planning on doing these weekly or bi-weekly and alternating brunch and dinner (if there’s enough of a turn out).
coffee (lots and lots of it)
sundried black olives, garlic stuffed olives and colossal green olives
*sesame garlic hashbrowns
whole-wheat cheese, green onion and dill biscuits
sauteed greens (kale, spinach and arugula)
*spicy apple fennel sausages (these took up the bulk of my cooking time)
*roasted cherry tomato and herb salsa-type thing
and then DESSERT:
*stewed rhubarb with lavendar, toasted almonds and edible flowers
*recipes in the cookbook i’m currently writing
