Tag You're It!!!

I was tagged by Elaine of California Living in a game of tag. It started out as a game for Easter, where those tagged were to make a virtual meal with previous blog posts that they would serve for Easter Dinner. Elaine decided to extend this game by tagging me and several other bloggers to make a virtual meal for Cinco de Mayo or Mother's Day!! I have chosen to do a Mother's Day Brunch. I thought it would be a very nice way to spend Mother's Day!!  
I am not sure who would be interested in this, so if you're interested…You're IT!! Here are a few Friend bloggers who I'm tagging! Josefa at Eat in the MiddleMichelle at Flourchild, Allison at French Whisk
and Frolicking Night Owl Have fun!!

So here's my virtual Mother's Day Brunch…I would probably start out with Mimosa's…but I haven't posted about them yet!! And I know I added too many desserts…What can I say? It's my virtual brunch, no calories!

  1. Wow, Kathy! I want to come over! Truly beautiful post!

  2. Merci Merci! Thanks for tagging me Kathy. I'm going to have to think about which I'll post about. Although you've set the bar pretty high with your mother's day brunch! So many options! This is going to be good.

  3. I don't think you have too many desserts at all! Your menu selection looks, great. Thank you for playing along!

  4. I remember your butter almond cake post. Can't wait to try that! It's on my list! Great choices for your Mother's Day brunch.

  5. Sounds good to me:) I tried your Dulce de Leche cheesecake recipe and the Easter Bread for Easter.
    The Easter Bread tasted the same as I remember my mother's, God Bless her soul, except that she used hard boiled colored eggs. It makes sense that the eggs would cook along with the bread. It brought back gret memories. The cheese cake was a big hit and was a nod to my husbands Uruguayan background. I did not have a can of conaprole dulce de leche (the best brand) on hand, so I simmered a can of condensed milk over a double boiler for 2 hours and used that instead. I also, shut the oven off after 55 min. and let it sit in there for another 45 min. before taking it out to cool,etc. I passed out the recipe and your blog site to all our dinner guests;)
