Bubbly Bro Brunch Father’s Day  Menu

No matter how many times I explain the concept of brunch, it’s just not something my husband “gets”.  But he loves getting everyone together for a late breakfast or early lunch – yah, I know.

Brunch menus are always so much fun to create.  But I always like to make a Mimosa or Man-mosa bar part of the menu.  It’s fun for guests to create their own concoctions and a conversation starter.

I like to begin brunch around 11 AM and just let them go well into the afternoon.

A perfect way to spend the day with Dad.
