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!

Sit- good puppy

I love Lacey's facial expression in this one...she looks like a stuffed animal.

Speciality Beer Reviews

Acai Berry Wheat and Bad Penny

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.

All that playing makes for a tired puppy.

  1. We both posted blogs at the same time today! Must be a blogging type of Saturday. Where did you take Lacey to play frisbee? I’m glad she likes to play that game. Lilly usually looks at me like I’m crazy if I throw a tennis ball and tell her to fetch it.

    • If you can tell, it’s the open spot where the old East Blvd Bar and Grill was located. I dont know if they plan to keep it open or if they are building something on top of the new grass they just laid. You can see Caribou in the background if you’re looking for it. Haha—yea Lacey’s pretty good about fetching, BUT too bad we have to keep that sneaky girl on a leash when we play!! 🙂
