babka Posted June 30, 2006 Share Posted June 30, 2006 My brother's getting married in July, and I've offered to host an informal brunch at his house the morning after the wedding. I've done this with small groups of friends for past weddings, and it's a good way to recover from a hangover and hang out informally with the newlyweds, with no stress on their part, before everyone flees home across the country again. This time, however, it's getting complicated. First, the number of guests has hit 60. Secondly, the logistics are such that there's not much time for cooking or shopping before the brunch actually starts: Wednesday, July 12: Drive to Pittsburgh Wednesday-Saturday, July 15: Pre-wedding assistance duties, wedding Saturday evening, play & drink at the reception until the wee hours of the morning. Sunday, July 16, 10 AM: Brunch starts. Everyone I'd normally press into helping with the brunch, myself included, will be coming in from out of town for wedding duties from Thursday through Saturday, which means there isn't much time for cooking....and while I'll have help in the kitchen on Sunday morning, nobody wants to roll to it much before 9 AM. So I'm struggling with the menu. So far I've got a couple of sweet, yeasted breakfast loaves, bagels & cream cheese & salmon, fruit, and bread & cheeses & cold-cuts, but it's the warm dishes that seem to anchor brunches, and I don't have any of these yet. Maybe a couple of stratas, or--??? Help! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
