Hurricane Brunch

Hurricane Brunch

Well, Irene has come and gone and now its time to eat up the ridiculous amount of supplies I had compiled to weather the storm.  I’d say its time for a little hurricane festivities to celebrate making it to Sunday dry-well we are speaking about the weather here-my supplies definitely included the necessary wine and spirits.


Tropical Fruit Platter

Caesar and Cilantro Deviled Eggs

Chicken Salad Sandwich Rolls

Music Suggestions:

I’ve got my love to keep me warm (Ella Fitzgerald)

Stormy weather (Billie Holiday)

Come on Irene (Dexy’s Midnight Runners)–sorry couldn’t help myself

Tropical fruit platter: slice one mango, one ripe nectarine, and one star fruit.  Layer on a plate and top with a handful of raspberries.

Caesar and cilantro deviled eggs:  6 hard boiled eggs, 2 teaspoons favorite caesar dressing, 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon mayonnaise, 1 teaspoon minced cilantro, salt and freshly ground pepper, dash of hot smoked paprika, one cornichon sliced thin for garnish.

Chicken salad sandwich rolls: 1 cup of cooked chicken meat, 2 tablespoons mayonnaise, 2 tablespoons thinly sliced celery, 2 tablespoons raisins, dash poultry seasoning, 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder, salt and freshly ground pepper.  Assemble with romaine lettuce in small potato rolls (I used 2 hot dog rolls sliced in 1/3’s)
