Good morning.Yesterday brunch was fabulous. Have you ever been to an Italian brunch?they put out enough food for plenty. Before lunch we had pepperoni,salami,olives and quite a few imported cheese and flat bread etc.Penny is from New York and she know how to put on a spread. Plenty of wine ,drinks,for those who want it. Also plenty of fruit,pear,slices,apple slices etc. Olive dip.Olive from NY etc. That is the only start. For our sit down meal we had pasta and chicken bake. Green salad,cheeses,garlic bread etc. The meal was excellent.An I was stuffed.LOL There was eight of us.Which is plenty. Amazing the amount of food.Well that is how the Italians do it. I loved it and Mike also.A good time was had by all. Photo is public domaine

My husband is part Italian, we always say the eating part. I don't eat Italian food at all so none of it turns me on. MY MIL was Italian and she was a horrible cook!

@amadeo She was just bad at all cooking - kept food in fridge too long...if she was following a recipe and didn't have something she improvised and it never turned out right. I refused to eat there, but so did her son!

That is a lot of food to enjoy. I have never been to an Italian brunch, but sure sounds like it would have plenty of food even for a vegetarian like me.
