Need help for very easy NYs brunch

Diane in Bexley | Dec 28, 2008 11:52 AM

Urgh! I got talked into hosting a New Year's Day brunch by friends who claim I am the best cook (would love to be invited to someone else's house for a change!). I am having some periodontal surgery Tues afternoon (2nd of 2 scheduled procedures) and will likely be on Oxycodone much of Tues and Wed (not a NY celebrator - no prob). So, I have limited time (and energy) to prepare for 8 people at noon on Thursday. I have a homemade apricot coconut coffee cake in freezer (Mom was right, good to have food on hand for emergencies), a 1.5 lb. smoked salmon from Costco (will get cream cheese, bagels, onions & tomatoes, can buy some more smoked fish). Will purchase some juices, brew up some great coffee, apple/cinnamon tea (my new fave). What else can I prepare in an hour to hour &half Thursday morning? Quiche? Fruit salad? Strata? Needs to be all dairy, no meat products (kosher guests). Thanks!
