Fancy Ladies’ Brunch

I enjoy having people over for a meal, but I always overdo it.  I know I do, and I still do everytime.  I like to impress though…so I try.

I invited my lady friends to come for a brunch.  I wanted it to be a little fancy and a little springy since it’s already pretty warm here in Florida.  I spent the week before planning and cleaning, and the whole day before and morning of cooking.  Here’s what I came up with.

(One of my friends is allergic to soy, and one has celiac, so I wanted to label each dish so that they would know what they could eat.  Hence the “gf” and “sf” on the cards.)

Fresh Fruit Salad with Agave-Lime Dressing – http://www.greatpartyrecipes.com/fruit-salad-recipe.html

(I subbed agave nectar for the honey called for, equal amount.)

    This food looks awesome! Thank you so much for sharing. What a fantastic idea to start a blog – so much scrummy food in one place – heaven! 😀 I’m going to try some of these this week.

    This brunch was amazing. Even if I did end up eating some of the the items with soy in them – everything was delicious. Even Lindsay, who has never had vegan food, was really impressed!
