Let There Be Brunch

Few things get me as excited as a good brunch – usually something sweet, something savory, and of course day drinking! Nancy was the hostess for this shindig, and nobody loves brunch more than her 🙂

Every good brunch needs a good drink (or two), so Nancy set up both a Mimosa and a Bloody Mary bar. Can’t go wrong here!

On to the food! Robert’s Seafood is the best place for seafood in town. It’s a cute little specialty grocery store, and I love it! Nancy got some smoked salmon there, as well as a very addictive dip called Mango Crab Chutney.

Nancy also made a delicious Peach Tomato Caprese salad. This salad screams summer! It’s peak peach and tomato season here in Illinois, and this was of course delicious.

I had been wanting Nancy to host a brunch so I could bring Ina Garten’s Cranberry Orange Scones. These are so delicious and easy to make – I have made a few other scones and in my opinion these really are the best.

No brunch is complete without a quiche or some sort of egg dish. Nancy served Zucchini Quiche with Basil – another great choice since we have zucchini in abundance.

Add some grilled sausage, a cheese tray, some fruit, bread, and shrimp, and there you go – Brunch!

Even dogs enjoy brunch 🙂

Our after-brunch entertainment was reading the Hillsboro Journal – nothing better than local news with insight from the Hillsboro natives! We learned many things, including a man’s love for junking 🙂

An egg-cellent time was had by all!
