Happy Birthday Jess!

Yesterday we celebrated my lovely friend Jess' 21st birthday with a brunch at her house.

Jess had the most amazing spread - there was a buffet table, small nibbles AND more substantial offerings being passed around, tea, coffee and juices. WOWZA!

I unfortunately didn't get photos of the first few nibbles being passed around - I was too busy eating them! But, there was mini cinnamon French toast with maple syrup, and mini toasted mushroom and salsa verde sandwiches. Very tasty, especially the French toast! I normally don't even like French toast, but this was fantastic - very soft and creamy and not dry at all.

Buffet Table

There were also fabulous mini-bagels with smoked salmon and cream cheese, but they were all snapped up before I got a chance for a photo!

Plated Items

Omelette, Mushrooms, Onion and Brown Toast

Jess: What's that in the eggs that makes them taste so good?
Me: It's parmesan cheese!
Jess: You're good.
Me: Thanks.

Eggs Florentine

Pancakes with Blueberries and Greek Yogurt - these were seriously good.

Birthday Cake

Birthday Cake - it was layers of custard cream between sheets of pastry... delicious.

Lots of food, lots of friends, lots of fun. Who could ask for a better party?
