Some years at Christmas, guests are invited to dinners but this year, I switched to breakfasts.
There's more energy in the morning plus, I love making breakfast foods.
Both days it was fun to set the tables with Christmas china and makeshift centerpieces.
The menus were very similar, too, in an effort to keep things as simple as possible.
The bacon, I spread out on cookie sheets, cooked it the night before, placed it in the refrigerator on paper towels, and reheated it in time for the guests.
The sausages cooked in the morning.
Sliced blood oranges, kiwi slices, and berries made colorful fruit trays.
Creme Brulee French toast rounded out the menu as well as eggs, scrambled on Saturday and rancheros style on Sunday.
Sure was a lot of work but lots of fun, too.
Guess what else?
Sunday afternoon I spent quiet time reflecting on the couch near the Christmas tree and it was sweet.
WHAT WAS ONE FUN THING YOU DID ON THE WEEKEND?
