An Easy No-Cook Brunch

It's all done in the shopping.

It seems like every New York restaurant known for its brunch menu is always crowded.  I think of Sunday mornings as a time for some peace and quiet so why stand in line for someone else's bagels and lox when I can have the same thing at home for less money and fewer crowds?

It's easy to make a Sunday brunch.  The answer is entirely in the shopping.  And other than making coffee and doing a little cutting and slicing, there's no cooking.

The Shopping List

Choose some combination of these items so to include a carb, some cheese/dairy, fruit, and fish or meat.

 

The Presentation

Your goal is to put on your table a generous selection of fresh foods that you and your guests can select from and make your own brunch plates.

 

Make coffee, put the sugar and milk (or half-and-half) into pretty serving pieces, pour the orange juice, and let everyone help themselves.  Play some Bach partitas and spread out The Sunday New York Times.

Now isn't that better than waiting on line at Sarabeth's?
