|Raspberry ale-dipped belmonte with a sliced pair. Yum!|
We were joined by the third (always fashionably late) member of our party (my BFF Anj!) before we were seated at long last, reviewed the menu, and ordered: bacon-spinach-eggplant strada for me, a sandwich of short rib hash for Jamie (we went halfsies on our meals), a veggie breakfast burrito for Anj, and a brioche french toast with blueberry and butterscotch for the table (click to see the meal in all its edible glory). That's right. We don't mess around when it comes to brunch.
When our food came, what followed was a solid 20 minutes of silence punctuated by biting, chewing, savoring, and exclamations of, "this is so freakin' delicious!"
And indeed, freaking delicious it was.
While this meal is certainly one that has no regular place on a blog about healthy eating, it is the type of occasional dining experience fit for a king. Luckily, the two bunches of kale I picked up from the market should last me all week, so I'll be balancing my diet accordingly with healthy greens. Stay tuned to find out what I do with this nutritionally dense leaf!
