Brunch So Hard 

Brunch.

That beautiful time in between breakfast and lunch. 

Perfect for those “there’s no way I’ll be up and presentable before 10am” people and the “I’ll die if I don’t eat anything by 2pm” folk. I personally happen to be one of those very people. (Disclaimer: don’t hate me for what I said when I was hungry).

forkAlthough I love brunch, I usually steer clear of most breakfasty menu items. Simply because I believe I make a banging breakfast myself, and I refuse to pay for something that doesn’t come close to the perfection I whip up in my own kitchen. *toots own horn*.

Over the weekend I stepped out of my brunch comfort zone and tried one of the best breakfast meals…of my life. Do y’all hear me though? Of. My. Life!!

Check out the awesomeness below I encountered at Cousin John’s in Brooklyn

Really, the picture doesn’t do this meal justice. I was hangry and impatient so I just snapped a quick pic.

I ordered the Cousin John’s Breakfast. Eggs (scrambled hard…with add cheddar cheese), side of potatoes (with grilled onions and peppers), freshly baked bread (and courtesy freshly baked wheat bread alongside home made jam: not pictured)...with an added side of turkey bacon (no pork allowed on my fork)

Super affordable. Super delicious. Super quaint. I’d give this place and meal 5/5 stars!!

Yum Yum Yum

Food makes me HAPPYYYYY *Pharrell Voice*.

Yes, I constantly complain about needing to lose weight (sorry, I’m one of those women), but ultimately I end up eating everything in sight! This time was no different. I had the great pleasure of attending a birthday brunch (Happy  29th on the 29th Jessica!) at Tysons Galleria located at 1796 International Drive, Mclean, VA 22102. Take a look at one of my new favorites from good old faithful:

The Cheesecake Factory.salmon

THAI GLAZED SALMON: Pan-Seared in a Thai-Coconut Cashew Sauce with Vegetables and White (I substitute in Brown) Rice

DELICIOUS!! I’D GIVE IT 5/5 STARS!
