    Default My menu for Easter

    I know, I know, I will be moaning about this for months if it goes as badly as usual in the past few years, but as someone posted on another thread, life is too short, so I thought I would try this again.
    Being the glutton for punishment that I am, I am having almost the entire family over for Easter Monday brunch.
    (2nd Easter day it is called here and everyone has a day off from work.)

    I hope that things go better than usual since psycho is no longer part of the family (is it wrong of me to say YEAH!!!!!?).
    So, in principle things should go OK, right?

    Well here is the menu. There will be 17 coming for brunch.
    What I want to know is, should I also make blueberry pancakes as well or should this be enough?

    We're going to start with a glass of sparkling wine (tradition in our family as well as in most of Holland).

    Then I have - in no special order since it will be served buffet style.

    tea/coffee/milk/juice

    bagels/muesli bread rolls/brown and white bread rolls/matze crackers/raisin bread filled with almond spice.

    of course butter and cream cheese

    fruit salad (mangoes/strawberries/apples/pineapple)

    sliced cheese/ham/thinly sliced roast beef/ham salad pie


    red pepper and tomato soup with basil cream served with a cheese stick

    strawberries marinated in prosecco syrup decorated with fresh mint

    asparagus with snippets of ham with a rich creamy sauce on the side

    sausages, bacon and fried eggs

    smoked salmon (with snippets of red onion on the side)


    For dessert, I have

    summer pudding
    cupcakes
    Easter choccies
    bunt cake
    coconut koekjes.

    I have enough for at least one (reasonably sized) serving of everything for everyone.

    Dh thinks I'm nuts, since he says that I have enough for an army as it is.
    I don't know - I do know what these guys can put away.

    So what do you think, make some blueberry pancakes as well?
    Thanks

    I think you really have enough food and do not need to also make pancakes especially since you will be having all the breads.

    Why not stay with your current list, would mean one less thing for you to do.

    Dutchie, That's a feast, I'll be right over. Now, where's my passport?

    PS You're going to make the blueberry pancakes, aren't you ?

    I decided against the pancakes.

    But everything except for some bread rolls was finished.
    Every last thing.

    I'm exhausted but it was nice and all the family behaved themselves.

    Glad your Easter Brunch wasn't dramatic like usual
