Mother's Day Brunch
was another fun get-together
for our clan!
It was pot-luck and everyone,
brought the most
It snowed off and on all day - such a change in weather
from last weekend but reminiscent of
29 years ago on my first Mother's Day as a new Mom!
A long distance call came from
that beautiful daughter - just in time for dinner.
We had Blueberry Stratta with Blueberry Sauce,
Ham and Cheese Stratta with Maple Syrup,
Hash Brown casserole
Fresh Asparagus Salad,
Fresh Fruit platter with Fruit Dip,
Cheese and crackers,
Swiss Muesli with Rhubarb Topping,
And then there were the desserts!!
Monkey Bread, and Cinnamon buns - oh my!!!
Swiss Muesli "pudding" was one of the items
that I made this year.
I first had it while travelling in Europe and then
again at a local fund raising brunch sponsored
by some of the wonderful Swiss Farmers
here in our area. Here is their recipe:
This makes 4 servings:
1/2 Cup Minute Rolled Oats
1/2 Cup boiling water
1 Cup low fat yogurt (plain or vanilla)
1/4 Cup raisins
1/4 Cup craisins (dryed cranberries)
2 Tbsp. natural bran
2 Tbsp. wheat germ
2 Tbsp. oat bran
2 Tbsp. coarsely ground flax seed
2 Tbsp. honey
Fresh fruit (i.e. blueberries, raspberries, banana, etc.)
Pour boiling water over rolled oats and let sit for 20 minutes. Stir in the yogurt and all the other ingredients except the fresh fruit. Cover and refrigerate overnight and up to 3 days. Just before serving add the fresh fruit.
This is delicious served in parfait glasses,
topped with fresh stewed rhubarb
Hope everyone had a most wonderful
Till next time ............. counting my many blessings!
