What I thought was going to be a simple brunch turned out to be a massive feast. The pictures below show you what happens when a bunch of New Orleans foodies are asked to bring a dish.
The amount of prepared food was excessive, and the bar was just as stocked. Mimosas were flowing as well as Bloody Mary's, Irish Coffees and Screwdrivers.
My favorite must-go-back-for-seconds item was the baked french toast made by A Couple Bites. Keith and Lindsay pointed me to the recipe here.
