Wednesday's Chow - Celebration Brunch

On February 7th, my mom turned 70! A year ago, just after her 69th birthday, the family started planning this year’s celebration. I’m pleased to say that all 22 members of the immediate family (children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and spouses) were able to come to the February 12th party!!! My mom wanted us to have dinner at a Chinese Restaurant, so we found one that had a private room and a buffet and we arranged for the party there. Since most of the guests were coming from out of town, a couple of weeks ago I decided to host a brunch in my home Sunday morning before everyone hit the road. Below is the menu with links to some of the dishes.

Celebration Brunch:

Texas Ranger Baked Eggs
Baked French Toast
Sausage Gravy and Biscuits
Cheesy Grits
Hash Brown Bake
Sparkling Breakfast Punch
Kolches (store bought)
Muffins (store bought)
Fresh Fruit Tray
Bacon/Sausage (I used the pre-cooked, so they just needed to be heated)

Anna Kathryn_Yummm! I'd love all of these dishes. Last year when I turned 70--but I still look 40--don't I?--I told my husband I wanted to go to Las Vegas. We had such a good time. We've been out there over the years numerous times, not being big gamblers, but this year--I wanted to gamble. Such fun.Thanks for the recipes, and for being such a good daughter. Celia

The hash browns sound great! I have a similar recipe with green onions added that I make for dinner.

Hi, Celia. Sounds like a great way to celebrate a birthday.

Hi, Jannine. Adding green onions would be a great addition to the hash browns. Thanks for sharing the suggestion.
