Shabbos morning got off to a busy start. We had a lot to get ready before all of Z's friends arrived for his day late birthday brunch. I used my pretty new autumn-hued tablecloth and set the table with the dairy China. It was such an elegant scene. We served up bagels and spreads, sliced veggies, broccoli quiche, caramelized onion and portobello mushroom quiche, pesto pasta tossed with slow-roasted tomatoes and baby mozzarella.
Desserts included a Boston cream pie, fruit tartlets topped with vanilla pastry cream and strawberries, and of course the rest of the strawberries!
This morning I did some laundry, bawled my way through the series finale of one of my favorite shows, and tackled the mountain of dishes left after yesterday's party. I did some other random cleaning too and I can't believe it's noon already. Still a whole lot to do and it'll be time to head out and pick up the Buzz-monster before I know it!
