Of course the topic of motherhood came up. It's so easy to find something to talk about regarding motherhood, even with people I've just met. Raising boys and their endless supply of energy was discussed. One mother had twins, so we instantly had something to chat about. Before we started eating, Joanna asked everyone to write a quirky family rule or tradition we had growing up in a Pinhole Press notebook. I thought of my dad's vegetable rule.
Some nights, but not all, he would declare, "Tonight vegetables are MANDATORY!" We all knew there was no arguing about mandatory veggie night. We better eat up! I don't remember him truly enforcing this rule, but he declared it enough that I still remember it. I've tried proclaiming it with my kids, but it never comes out the same. He had a strength and ironic tone that I just can't seem to match.
I would have had no problem if someone declared mandatory veggie day at the brunch. Find all the recipes here. I wouldn't change a thing--the food was perfect. Especially the dessert (pictured below)!

Two more pictures slightly of me after the jump! ha
