Dear Mamas~<br><br>
I will be having a post-birthday brunch this coming thursday with three mama friends of mine plus their babies, so four mamas in total. As I not only have my 4.5 months old nursling but also a 3 year old energetic DD at home I was planning on making some simple things and I'd like to have your opinion about that.<br><br>
So, at the moment I am having the following foods on my menu:<br><br>
Spinach-Salmon (with smoked salmon) quiche based on <a href="http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/recipe_views/views/2551" target="_blank">that recipe</a><br>
Fruit Salad w/vanilla jogurt and spelt pops for topping<br><a href="http://www.recipezaar.com/bb/viewtopic.zsp?t=193284" target="_blank">Cinnamon Rolls</a><br>
...and then? Maybe a cheese plater? Some ham&cheese mini croissants? Small Muffin-like Ham frittatas?<br><br>
Please TIA with some good ideas <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> For drinks we will have Samosas, Tea, Coffee and Water and orange juice<br><br>

I think your ideas look really yummy! Don't forget- you need to enjoy the party, too! In Barefoot Contessa's first book (I think) she mentions that she hand-makes a few items, and the rest she procures from a deli or bakery. Maybe you can delegate the cheese or fruit or veggie platters to your local grocer.

I'd definately go veggie platter in case there are veg mamas there. I see you have the fruit dish, but there going to feel all sugared up without some protein and/or veggies.... maybe you can make an extra quiche without the salmon, just a small one in case......
