breakfast for the next day

Bring along a few goodies for the hostess to enjoy the morning after. Muffins, (this mouthwatering lemon poppy seed bread anyone?) jam, and a bottle of freshly squeezed orange juice will do the trick.

For something a bit more heartier, stop by the farmers’ market for fresh eggs and sausages.
