Hope you all had a swell time at Boxer's place and around the blogosphere for the New Year's virtual party and commentathon! I'm borrowing Buzz's auto-launcher to bring you this New Year's brunch while I'm out covorting on the river. So grab a cup of coffee and join in this morning-after feast. Remember that I'll be donating 50 cents per comment you leave here to the Freestore Foodbank, along with 50 cents per comment you leave at Boxer's place saying "Eggy sent me."
I've made breakfast burritos for a crowd, so step right up.
I also whipped up a batch of strata.
And this lovely quiche.
And I'm cooking to order over at the omelette station. What would you like in yours?
We've got bacon.
You say you want some steak with your eggs? We've got that too.
I even have a veggie saute for Boxer and the other vegetarians in the crowd.
The home fries are sizzlin'.
And to make those potatoes even tastier, try dipping them in this pacquillo mayo.
Just a hunch, but I'll bet a few of you might go for shrimp and grits.
In addition to sweet corn bread, we've got homemade cinnamon rolls and a fine array of breads.
And don't forget to help yourself to one of these sour mash biscuits.
Knowing how Shamy loves her blackberries, I'm offering them up with some other fruit at one end of the buffet.
For an extra special side dish, you won't want to miss this apple-beet salad.
If you're getting a bit thirsty by this point, help yourself to some Pomegranate-Champagne punch courtesy of Velva at Tomatoes on the Vine. The punch table is over there in the corner, and there's plenty for all.

And speaking of plenty for all, I ordered up this bad boy to share with all my bloggy friends, in honor of my very favorite breakfast of 2010, porchetta at Ferry Plaza Farmers Market!
Goodness, gracious, but I'm running out of room here. I think we're going to have to move on over to the foyer for the sweets table, starting with these loaded waffles.
For those of you who missed the ice cream party Thursday night, how about some lemony gelato to round off your meal?
Accompanied, of course, by these delectable macarons.
Here's wishing you all a grand New Year and all good things in 2011! I think this big old spread has put me into a food coma, so I'll toddle off to take nap . . . but I'll be around to check in with you later today when I can snag some computer time at Cindie's before we start prepping New Year's dinner.
