Brunch Dilemma Update

Wow, thanks for everyone’s input on my Christmas brunch/dinner post! The suggestions have been really helpful. As of right now, this is what I’m planning:

– Baked French Toast (Thanks for the recipe, Christina!)

– Sausage Strata

Special Potato Casserole (I saw this on Richard’s site the other day and then he suggested the recipe to me over on Twitter. I love pretty much anything with goat cheese, so I think this one will be a winner.)

– Lemon Chicken (maybe… friend’s sister is a caterer so we’re going to see how much it would be for half a tray)

– Pear Salad with Cranberries, Walnuts, and Chevre

Everything except the salad can be prepared the day before, which is perfect. I’ll delegate out the dessert. Currently I’m trying to decide between cheesecake (only because I want cheesecake) and Buche de Noel (because it’s festive). Just have to consider which wines to serve. Drew can’t understand my urgency in figuring out a menu and I think maybe I just need to obsess over something, so this is it. I feel pretty good about this menu. Hopefully we’ll be able to swing the lemon chicken. It would be a nice change and one less thing for me to worry about.

    Maybe you can help me out with something…? I want to order all of my food online from now on because of various reasons, but I don’t know where to go for quality food. I have tried 2 companies so far, Fresh Dining, and and Celebrity Foods, but I wanna get others I can try out. Do you know of any? The main thing I’ve ordered so far is steak. I guess you can say, I’m a steak junkie. LOL!!! From what I have found out (from what I have ordered so far) I think I am able to regulate the quality of beef I buy. I hate going to a store and getting that crappy slab of beef that I have to cut down until there is like nothing left. Hahaha!!!! (its so true though) Anyhow, sorry that I made this comment so long. If you can help me out or point me in a direction where I might find more quality foods online, I would greatly appreciate it. Have a good day or night! (depending on when you read this) LOL!!!!
