Best Family Day Brunch Ever

I hope all you Ontarians who get Family Day had a great one!

We are one of those families who relishes a good collective feast.

Here’s what we had, to feed fifteen (well, fourteen – one was eating carrot purée instead) lovely people at my sister’s apartment (it was potluck):

Homemade by those in attendance…

  • nut-and-seed granola
  • garlic hummus
  • rosemary-flavoured farmer’s cheese
  • pineapple-mandarin salad
  • cranberry cheese ball
  • count ’em – four varieties of mini-muffins (forming a continuum: banana-oat, banana-chocolate-chip, orange-chocolate-chip, and orange raisin)
  • vegan valentine chocolate layer cake

Not homemade but still delicious:

  • cocoa-cinnamon raisin swirl bread (from With the Grain)
  • crackers and cheese
  • potato perogies with fried onions
  • vegan sausage
  • mini cinnamon rolls
  • candied ginger slices
  • roasted cashews
  • real organic maple syrup
  • yogurt (dairy and soy)
  • oranges and grapefruit
  • coffee, white tea, herbal tea, orange juice, blueberry pomegranate juice, and various spiking liquids (Kahlua, Irish whiskey, etc.)

Special food on holidays: SO great. Let’s all be inspired and eat food worth eating today!
