Here are a couple links to some nice looking brunch menus from food network "Semi Homemade With Sandra Lee"... the woman bugs me (don't know why lol) but heck if her recipes aren't some of the easiest things in the world to make and she's got some really great ideas. These are all the shows she's done on brunch menus so far.

Hope that helps! I am sure if you poke around (use the search for recipes feature, just search for "brunch" and you'll get LOTS of results for all sorts of things!) you will be able to find lots more recipes and ideas. :)

OMG, Yes! Sandra Lee bugs me, too! But I'm strangely drawn in when I see her show, though, b/c her ideas and meals are so simply marvelous. Fiance and I will watch her and we're totally bugged by how emphatically she uses adjectives. Everything is "wonderful" and "divine" and "beeeeautiful" and "marvelous." I think we intended to count how many adjectives she used in one show and we lost track!! (sorry for the thread steal)

I recommend something simple, easy, and light. Whether you'll be hiking somewhere to picnic, or simply driving to a park, you'll want to bring food that packs nicely in baggies and slim tupperware containers. You can do sandwiches, apples and cheese (my favorite lately), grapes, strawberries, or even get some hummus and dip in some raw veggies, like cucumbers, or celery, or broccoli. As for a beverage, you just can't beat water. But if you're going for romance, bring along some white wine w/ your light lunch fare.
