I was a real rebel today and ate lunch for breakfast, dinner for lunch and breakfast for supper. HA! This all came about because my Uncle treated us to Sunday Brunch today at a ritzy (for us) hotel restaurant. It was a blast….he’s the coolest to hang out with. Here’s a picture of him ad DD at Christmas time:
I woke up at 8 and knew I’d be too hungry by 11 if I didn’t eat anything. My being hungry + a buffet = a mad belly the rest of the day. I had about a 1/3 cup of goat’s milk yogurt left which I mixed with the rest of last night’s coconut quinoa:
I relaxed with the computer before hitting the shower and then we were on our way! The brunch this restaurant puts on is spectacular! I really had to pace myself so I could taste all that it offered. My game plan for buffet’s is usually to only serve myself food that I 1) can’t usually find 2) don’t ever make 3) rarely have. My first go around was French toast, a waffle, egg Benedict w/o the sauce (don’t like it!) and some fruit. I also ate a piece of DS’s bacon:
There were some fabulous looking stuffed potatoes that I was hoping my hubby would select because I knew I would never be able to finish one myself and I don’t like to waste food. Alas, he passed, too. Round 3 was to be dessert but when I got up there all the scrumptious looking cakes not only hadn’t been touched, but were cut into fairly large pieces. Again, I knew I wouldn’t be able to finish a whole piece so I opted to go back for another helping of French toast, waffle and fruit!
They had a make-your-own-omelette station which the kids were pretty impressed over. They enjoyed picking their toppings and watching the guy cook right in front of them. DS wanted me to take a picture of his cheese and ham creation:
I wasn’t too stuffed when we left, but a few more bites woulda put me over the edge so I’m glad I stopped when I did! I forgot to mention yesterday that DD gave me New Moon as a late b-day present yesterday. I watched it last night with my hubby and we all changed into our cozy clothes, snuggled under blankets and watched it again this afternoon. L-O-V-E-D it! I don’t want to say that it was better than Twilight because I loved that one too, but New Moon was made better than Twilight. Obviously, there was a better budget for this one! I also think that New Moon followed the book closer. My hubby and I decided that next weekend we’re gonna watch them 2 back to back. I’m (pleasantly) surprised that he likes them enough to do that! LOL!

This was the perfect sized meal, as far as my appetite was concerned! After eating a whipped up another batch of my dark chocolate chip avocado muffins:
I brought a few to my parents place and plan on sharing some at work tomorrow. I did just eat one myself, for quality inspection, of course!! :)
I’m off now to watch The Amazing Race and then Undercover Boss. Hope you’ve all had a great day!!!
Bye for now!!
