Brunch Basket

Pot Luck Brunch Spread

 New Yorkers know how to brunch. We have made a sport of it. Every Saturday and Sunday we lazily get ready and eat our first meal at 1 pm. Also we have our 1st cocktail then too. Then there are those cold winter days where getting out of bed is our last option. This is why last Sunday I decided to switch up my normal brunch routine. Instead of trekking downtown for cold eggs Benedict and watery mimosas I threw a pot luck brunch for me and my girlfriends. Everyone was responsible for one thing whether it was a dish or being in charge of the varied mimosa and Bellini options.

Mimosas and Bloody Mary's

 There were egg dishes, bagels, and all other things for a mini feast. As we all sat quietly, because we were enjoying the delicious dishes the girl talk followed. We sat leisurely for the whole afternoon making the best of a Sunday. Although not better than quality girl time was the fact at how comparable in price brunch was , if not cheaper than all the restos hawking dry french toast. We sat for hours; there was no annoyed waiters to rush us out.  If we got full we could unbuckle our jeans.  I write this post because I highly suggest you change up that weekend routine for the same event with a different beat.  Being that pot luck was such a delicious success this is going to become a regular with the girls.
