Brunch report

Another Sunday brunch today, this time for my PhD (and EngD) students. It was great to finally get them all over, although I note that they're a far more abstemious bunch than the usual suspects - we practically had to beg them to drink the margaritas I had on ice!

Menu was as follows (mostly for my benefit):

  • Fruit platter - pineapple and papaya, dressed with lime and cayenne
  • Huevos revueltos with chorizo
  • Guacamole
  • Frijoles
  • Salsa Pica de Gallo
  • (sour cream, crumbled Wensleydale, spring onions)
  • Tortillas and bread rolls (the latter for molletes)
  • Sopapillos (or bunuelos - I can't work out which is the correct term for fried wheat tortillas dredged with cinnamon sugar)
  • Cafe en Olla
  • Choice of cocktails, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic: Margarita, Bloody Mary/Maria, Bucks Fizz, Tequila Sunrise, Virgin Mary, Virgin Sunrise

Next time, we might try a New York bagel brunch; sadly, there are several people who dislike fish, which rules out an Edwardian brunch with kedgeree or kippers.

It's not possible.

"Dislike fish" Exclamation mark.

To the salt mines with them...

Mmmm, fish....

No problem - it was great having you all over.

Yes, we had an excellent time - thank you!

oh! I am so sad that we do not live closer together. Your brunches always sound so wonderful!

We should really make this a resolution for the New Year...
