On Friday evening, I stopped by the grocery store to get some flowers and lemons to use as a centerpiece for our brunch.
|We got the large jug as a wedding present and the flowers were $4. The limes were 3 for $1 and I got 6 (5 in the vase and 1 as garnish for lime water). Total cost for centerpiece was $6.|
On Saturday morning, I got to work. Here's our table setting. Everything on the table with the exception of the centerpiece we already had at home. It was more a matter of mixing and matching. The table cloth was a gift from J's late grandmother. I love the way it made all the colors pop!
On the menu was the following:
- Ham & Cheese wheels
- Crescent rolls
- Spinach & bacon quiche
- Cran-orange mamosa
- Blueberry muffins
The Ham & Cheese wheels didn't take long at all. This was a Pinterest idea as well. I just threw my spin on it and made it a breakfast one instead.
|We already had the salsa and hot sauce at home. All I got was the whipped cream cheese spread. Total cost $1.79|
|Cheese was $2.99, ham was $3.79 and tortillas was on sale for $2.99.|
|Spread the sauce on the tortilla, then put on the ham and add the cheese then roll up and cut.|
|Total cost for these was $11.56|
|These were on sale. I got the store brand. Each was $1.16. I used 2 rolls. Total cost $2.32|
The quiche is a very very very old recipe from a former co-worker. I got it 10-years ago! If you are interested, here it is:
1 cup on milk
1/2 cup of mayo
2 tablespoons of flour
8 oz of cheese (I used a four cheese mix)
2/3 cup of small diced onions
1 jar of REAL bacon bits (in salad dressing isle)
1 frozen pie crust
Preheat oven to 350. Beat eggs with flour, milk and mayonnaise . Mix in bacon bits and onions. Add cheese. Pour mixture into frozen pie crust and bake for 45-60 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the center.
I have used roll out dough for the crust and also done it crust-less and each time, its tasted yummy!!!
|I had all the ingredients for this at home including the pie crust. They often come as 2 in a pack. I had one crust leftover from an apple pie I made a while back. Total cost for this was $0|
|As J would say, "yummy goodness!" Everything turned out great. The mini-cupcakes was brought by one of my friends. They were oh so good!|
|I love this mix because it comes with real blueberries in a can. They are slightly pricier than the regular box mix but I prefer them. The cost is $2.39 compared to the regular $1.99 at our local grocery store.|
|I got this board from Amazon. Total cost was $4.99 (it was an "add on item"...in other words, my entire purchase had to be over $35 to get this price).|
|These yummy goodness was brought by one of my friends. They were gone baby GONE in no time at all.|
The total cost for this brunch came to $38.23. Granted, it took me 3.5 hours to get everything prepared but you can't beat the price.
The fun and smiles on my beautiful friend's face? PRICELESS! We had a great time!
I took the below picture because no post would be complete without the people who make this all possible...JOE & J. LOVE THEM!!!
After church on Sunday, I was just too tired to do anything else so instead, J went to the grocery store to do our household shopping while JOE and I got a nap. SCORE!
I hope you had a fantastic weekend! Here's to an even more fantastic week.
