If you are entertaining houseguests for the weekend, you want to keep the cooking to a minimum. That doesn't mean starving your guests, it means planning ahead and getting organized
By the time it comes to Sunday morning, I'm pretty exhausted so whatever i am going to serve is going to be pretty simple. I already impressed them with Saturday's dinner! Combining two meals in one, such as breakfast and lunch is the answer...hello brunch. Prepare a pot of coffee the night before and leave a box with some cinammon buns or bagels by the pot so your guests can serve themselves when they wake up. Plan brunch for around 11:00 - 12: 00. and you are done until dinner, which hopefully, will be a simple BBQ.
