My parents celebrated 47 years of marriage on June 7.
I’d say that deserves a brunch.
So, I hosted one for my parents, my siblings and their families and a couple of other VSP (Very Special People) at my house yesterday. It was a lot of work but truly delightful and well worth it.
I did all the cooking. Well, the non-cooking, I should say. I had a salads brunch and only turned on the stove once to sautee some garlic. Hooah!
Let me just be honest here: I love to entertain at my house because I get to use all my cathrineholm bowls and vintage dishes and I get to decorate and make bouquets out of pretty wildflowers in my yard and use all my fun vintage napkins and linens and try new vegan recipes and all that fun stuff. Were it not for the cleaning part, I could do this every weekend.
Cabbage Apple Coleslaw with Maple Pecans (this was a huge hit!)
Kidney Chickpea Salad (similar to this… not pictured)
Pasta salad (made by my sister… also not pictured)
Bread basket (nothing out of the ordinary here)
Chilled Double Chocolate Torte (No-Bake and ABSOLUTELY DIVINE… Highly recommended!)
The brunch was really great. My house was clean, my family was together, we all enjoyed a wonderful, summer-y vegan meal and celebrated my amazing parents. The perfect day, I’d say.
And thank you for a house full of people I love. Amen. ~Terri Guillemets
