Gourmet Club: Brunch

As I mentioned earlier, our most recent Gourmet Club was the best theme yet: brunch for dinner! I had been looking forward to this night for ages. Sipping mimosas while watching the sunset made this night beautiful and tasty 🙂

Now for the spread…

There was supposed to be a baked mushroom omelette which would have added a nice savoury component to the meal — but the delicous rosti made up for it:

My friend Jaime did a wonderful job preparing the rosti — don’t they look perfect?

Next up, baked french toast:

Served with a side of glazed strawberries:

Then we had some coconut pancakes,

corn muffins,

fresh berries,

and last but not least, delicious homemade granola (courtesy of Ali 🙂 )

Thanks ladies for a wonderful evening.

Yours edibly,

Elana

P.S. I prepared the sticky buns, which you can see in the picture of the spread.

Gourmet Club: Mexican Fiesta

I had a jolly ol’ time at the Mexican Fiesta.

Here are some pictures (as promised).

Please excuse the quality of these pics as lighting was poor and stomachs were growling.

Once again…chicken enchiladas!

Mexican salad: black beans, pepper, tomatoes, and corn.

7-Layer Dip: Refried Beans, Salsa, Sour Cream, Taco Seasoned Mayo, Green Onions, Tomatoes, and Cheese

Make your own Nachos: Sour Cream, Guacamole, Cheese, Salsa, Hot Peppers, and Olives

Cheese Quesadillas

Clockwise from the top: Chicken Taquitos, Jalapeno and Cheese Popovers, and Mini Beef Tacos

Stuff I forgot to photograph: Spanish Rice & Margaritas.

Life is just so much better when you eat like a Mexican.

Adios,

Elana
