A Spring Brunch

The meal of the month was brunch so Mom and Dad came over on Saturday morning and we enjoyed our meal of the month together.

We had
  • Nova Scotia Bran muffins
  • Pumpkin Scones with Harvest Spice Icing.
  • Baked Apple Pancake with Warm Maple Syrup
  • Breakfast Sausages
  • Quiche Lorraine
  • Mini Pavlova for Dessert

The table cloth isn't really a table cloth. It's a bedspread. We got it from Mom's mom and at the brunch Mom told us the story of how it was made. All of Mom's sisters crocheted on this piece -- usually on a Sunday afternoon. It was more of a chore than a pleasant hobby. Eventually, the girls moved away from home and Grandma took over and finished it off.

It's way too big to be a table cloth so we had to pin it under the table so it doesn't hang on our legs. Then we covered it with a clear piece of plastic to protect it from spills.
It's really too lovely to put on a bed.
