Last Sunday, Tammy & Todd came over for brunch. I really hope these will become more frequent - i love cooking for them, and seeing them Sunday morning is such a lovely start to the last day of the weekend. Todd doesn't eat mammals, and Tammy doesn't eat avians or mammals. Here's our brunch menu from the weekend - i'm particularly proud of how health-minded some of the cooking techniques were.
Coffee with cherry-blueberry oat bran muffins
Potato pancakes with asparagus pesto & smoked salmon
Mixed greens with fig balsamic vinager
Canteloupe and pear fruit salad with minted simple syrup and orange zest
The potato pancakes were baked on a silpat - so the became golden and crispy on the outside. The muffins had banana in them to replace a bunch of the oil, and were moist and tangy. And i've never put pears and canteloupe together, but they tasted great, and were visually pleasing next to one another.
I'll call this one a success!Posted by shock on October 01, 2003 | TrackBack
