Flying Biscuit Cafe
We were late risers this morning due to staying up like vampires last night watching junk TV and surfing the web, so we decided to go out to eat at the Flying Biscuit Cafe for brunch. I was going to bring my camera to take pictures of what we ordered, but I knew it would be super busy and didn’t want to risk being scooted up close to another couple eating like we were last time. So I’ll tell you about what we had. It was delicious!!
Brandon ordered the Egg-Stravaganza…
Two large farm fresh eggs served with our chicken sausage, crisp turkey bacon, creamy dreamy grits, plus whole wheat French toast topped with raspberry sauce and honey crème anglaise. He ordered his eggs, over-easy. And then asked me, “why do they ask how I want my eggs? I just want them to cook them.” I, working in restaurants part-time for 13 years now, told them there are TONS of ways people want their eggs specifially made to their order. Scrambled (#1 most popular), over-easy, over-medium, over-hard, sunny side up, poached, egg whites only scrambled, egg whites only scrambled add cheese, etc, etc, etc, etc. At that point, maybe you should just stay home and cook for yourself if you have to be so specific?
I ordered the Clifton Omelette…
Three large farm fresh eggs stuffed with goat cheese and mushrooms, topped with warm tomato coulis and basil, served with creamy dreamy grits.
I’ve been keeping goat cheese in the fridge recently because we love to add a touch of goat cheese to our omelettes in the morning, but I also loved the idea of the mushrooms and the tomato coulis and basil on top. The tomato coulis was a blended mixture of tomatoes and spices.
(Now I waitress at Brazwell’s Premium Pub, a restaurant in the MECA of Myers Park on Montford Drive. At Brazwell’s we have a full dinner menu as well as a brunch menu we offer on Sundays from 11am-3pm.) There’s your plug Brazwell’s, that’s the least I could do, right?
Playing Frisbee in the park
Next I wanted to take our puppy, Lacey Lou, to a new open grassy field/park that has just been laid with sod literally overnight. Here are some pictures of Lacey and Brandon playing Frisbee!
Speciality Beer Reviews
Earlier this week, Brandon picked up a few speciality beers at Total Wine for us to try because we think we are beer connoisseurs or something. The Acai Berry Wheat was for me and is brewed in Scotia, California at the Eel River Brewing Company. It is Certified Organic. My review, “It has a good wheat flavor with a hint of berry.” I would purchase this beer again.
Brandon picked out the Bad Penny Brown Ale for him. Bad Penny, a local beer, is brewed in Raleigh, NC at the Big Boss Brewing Co. Brandon’s review, “Now this looks like a good beer!” (based on the rich, dark color alone) Tasting review- “It has a good dark and smooth flavor.” He would also purchase this beer again.
