I think I must have been drunk when I offered to have my husband’s family over this Friday and then offering to host a friends/family brunch on Sunday. I work full time, its budget time and I am working really long hours this week. What was I thinking??

Anyway I have Friday night covered. Going very simple-grilled steak, baked taters, salad. They are bringing wine/dessert. Done! and clean up should be breeze. Phew!

Sunday is my challenge, Looks like we will be a total of 18-12 adults, two teens and four 12 year olds. No allergies, no pickiness, no dietary restrictions. I am definitely going the buffet route! Here is the menu so far. Is it enough? Too much?

Signature cocktail: Cranberry Bog. Cranberry vodka (my own), cointreau, white cranberry juice. There will also be mimosa, full bar and soft drinks.

2 kinds of frittatas- one meat based , one veggie based

“Honey of a Ham” with sides of biscuits, mayo and mustard

Mixed green salad

Bagels w/ sides of cream cheese, smoked salmon, capers, chopped onion and sliced kumatos (unless I can find good regular tomatoes)

Cinnamon rolls (my friends “famous” ones) so so good!

Desserts will be platters of Christmas cookies and the same friends blueberry pie.

I was thinking I needed a winter fruit salad- oranges, apples, pears, etc. Thoughts?

Any other ideas, criticisms, etc welcome!
