Brunch Nostalgia

This was the epitome of potluck brunches. Each person was hyperaware of the importance of complimenting dishes and flavors, making sure that their dish would not be out of place. To boot, each dish was homemade, which, alas, is all too unusual at potlucks these days. Once, I invited a few friends over for a potluck brunch only to have 5 bottles of champagne and 5 cartons of orange juice.
