Breakfast at....

We took a little break from our Saturday morning breakfast
adventures, but now were back to them. The past Saturday we went to an
old favorite, Brandy's. Haven't been there in quite some time (well,
actually, Audra & I went a few weeks ago, but it doesn't count
unless Don gets to go). And before that, it was probably a year or more.
Why did I stop going? It's a bit on the pricey side. And very rich. A
girl could gain some serious weight going there. Here's a little
tidbit...when Audra & I first met & started hanging out we would
meet once a week at Brandy's for breakfast (10+ years ago). In 2002
when I started training for the 3 Day Breast Cancer Walk, we traded our
breakfasts for our crazy early walks. Now we walk together 4 days a
week...crazy early...and have breakfasts on Saturdays...but you have to
walk first, or you don't get to go. Ask Kendall about that.

Back to Brandy's. Every place we go we ask the server what they
recommend & our server, Andrew, recommended anything with
hollandaise sauce on it...then got super specific about eggs florentine
but with munster cheese instead of swiss & add mushrooms. So that's
what I had (minus the english muffin, of course). And it was good. No,
it was FANTASTIC. Audra had a breakfast burrito with avocado & fresh
jalapenos, which she loved & Don had eggs & sausage, which he
enjoyed. All in all, the breakfast was quite delightful. It cost around
$30 for the 3 of us, but it was worth every penny. But since Country
Host is more in our budget, we'll have to save Brandy's for special
occasions. And FYI, Brandy's doesn't serve bacon. That can sometimes be a
deal breaker in some houses.

Typepad is inserting ? every time I double space. They say it will be
fixed in a week. Kinda changes the meaning of things, doesn't it?


  1. That Breakfast photo makes my mouth water. Now I want Hollandaise!

  2. Mmm. The eggs florentine sound really good! I like lunch there too!
