I love celebrating my friends. I was especially thrilled to be able to host a brunch with a group of absolutely amazing gals that I grew up with and are like sisters to me. I really wanted it to be a simple affair. But nothing with me is ever simple is what I have finally come to understand. Regardless, I wanted this to be something special for these dear sisters/ friends of mine. I wanted them to feel at home, loved and well special. I hope they left feeling that way. I arranged it like a buffet so that they can pick and choose what they wanted. It was a chilly, early afternoon get together so I figured comfort food was in order. I had tomato basil soup heating up in the crock pot (thank you Costco, ps if you haven’t tried this soup its a must!!!so good), with a side of parmesan crisps ( also Costco), an assortment of muffins, croissants and grilled cheese made to order.
I like the not thinking aspect of entertaining but I also like to cook for my guests. With this spread, I was able to do both. Have my friends pick and choose as they go while at the same time serving them food hot off the stove
Big Papa J (BPJ) also offered to be our personal chef and make the grilled cheese. He is something, isn’t he!? And of course, we had our dogs Jax and Opie in the mix.
We only get very rare moments like this to just relish and savor with our friends as our schedules are so hectic and we live so far apart. I’m happy to have been able to do that with these girls!!
