Can you spot them all?
Weekend mornings, I've gotten into the deranged habit of waking up on the early side. I blame this on the many projects I have going with morning people, meaning that work meetings starting at 7 in the morning is not so unusual. Combine an early morning meeting with an annoying freeway drive chock full of accidents, and that means I have to wake up at dark o'clock to ensure I'm not late to said meeting.
All this waking up early business wouldn't bother me if I could sleep in during the weekends, but sadly it's becoming harder for me to do so. Obviously, the boy does not share this same disease. And if I forgo my bed spot, there are four volunteers who will gladly take it over, clearly taking advantage of the boy's impaired discipline.
The bright side of this is that I've come to a new appreciation of weekend brunch. If I can rouse the boy, we can easily slip into some of the more popular brunch spots around town without a wait. I think I've had eggs fancy variations of eggs Benedict now at least one day of each weekend for the past month.
So far, my eggs Benedict ranking is as follows:
- The Sunnyside Cafe: They have a daily eggs Benedict special that features local meat and produce. This is my favorite spot by miles.
- Cafe M: I had the crab cake Benedict. It was served only with pan fried potatoes, so the whole meal was heavy. The crab cakes were fried, which I suppose is normal, but I would have rather had lump crab meat.
- Cafe 1491: Straightforward eggs Benedict. It's not bad, but it's not the best thing on the brunch menu. Next time I'll get the duck confit hash - that was delicious.
