The real D.Y.B.F.

26 Feb

As much as I want to hate Bobby Flay (which is a lot), every time he proves me wrong.  Every recipe or restaurant that I’ve tried of his has been comforting, spicy, and really well made.  Thusly, damn you Bobby Flay! *shaking fist toward the sky!*

Sunday morning, before heading back to Virginia Beach, we ate at Mesa Grill for brunch.

Side note,has everyone seen the How I meet Your Mother where Marshall talks about brunch??

Anyway, Mesa Grill!

Brunch really is the perfect meal.  You can have alcohol and pancakes all in one sitting.  I mean, come on!  Leanne got a Bellini and I got a Mimosa, champagne is so bubbly.  With the drinks they brought out a bread basket with the best assortment of little popovers, corn muffins, and cinnamon streusel bread. I wish I had the recipe for all three!  Leanne got the Spicy Scrambled Eggs with Apricot glazed ham and buttermilk biscuits and I got the Spicy chicken + sweet potato hash with poached eggs and a green chile hollandaise.  Both of our meals were perfection.  I swear if I didn’t have to look at or listen to and he wasn’t already married, I would snatch Bobby Flay up and make him be my personal live in chef for always.  How it pains me to enjoy his food so much!

It was an awesome trip to New York, but there is never enough time.  I want to go back!  It doesn’t matter how many times I’ve gone; I always have so much fun and find something new and interesting to do.  This time was no different.  New York…I heart you!

To leave you, some of the other New York photos that didn’t get posted earlier!  Enjoy!

This covered an entire wall at MoMa.

School News

Goosebumps and R.L. Stine books are all the rage right now in 4th grade.  There is one little girl who every time she gets a new Goosebumps or Stine book she asks me, “Were these books invented when you were a little girl?”  Yes, invented.  Every time I tell her that they were, she is so amazed.  It’s like she’s learned how many licks it takes to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop.  Oh youth.
