Not Your Standard Brunch When the Families Are Meeting

My mom loves to cook and entertain. But sometimes the fun and excitement of throwing a party turns into “What have I gotten myself into?” So when my parents decided to graciously host a family brunch Thanksgiving weekend — an excuse for my fiancee’s siblings to meet my siblings, my mom decided to hire a caterer! Now, we can all sit back, relax and really drink our champagne! We did, however, have a say in the beautiful display of  salads (see below). Excited by the menu, I decided that  I’m  going to try making my own version of  the sesame noodle salad with scallions and peanuts. Check back later to see how my Thai noodles turn out…
