brunch and twilight.. two perfect things.

i woke up saturday morning determined to eat healthy this weekend, the cloudy skies made me think this would be easy, i would have a quiet and relaxing weekend at home, maybe go to the gym and load up on fruit and veggies from the farmers market.

what is it they say about the best laid plans? an hour or so after my healthy weekend idea i got a text from a friend telling me we were meeting for brunch at Universal Cafe. if you've ever had brunch at Universal you know how very hard it is to turn down. i had some amazing combination of poached eggs, biscuits and sausage gravy along with two mimosas.. so much for my healthy weekend plans. the menu changes often at Universal but i've never had a breakfast i didn't like there. we also split some delicious pumpkin donuts with mascarpone. yum.

and today i met Anh-Minh for another delicious brunch at Slow Club. i think they have a more constant menu, i had the egg fried sandwich which was delicious and simple with some of the most perfectly cooked bacon i've had in a while. they open at ten which is when we got there and it filled up pretty fast so like most good brunch places in the city the key seems to be getting there close to when they open.

this isn't food related but it might consume me for a while so i'm sharing. today i started Twilight and it's kind of a wonder i was even able to pull myself away and write this post. i had been thinking about reading the series for a while but was resisting, last night some good friends finally convinced me. i've got heidi's well loved copy next to me in bed right now and i can't wait to get back to it!
