BRUNCH VS BUFFET

“Never test the depth of a river with both feet.”  Warren Buffet

Although I intended to search the internet for quotes about buffets, as in a restaurant offering, quotes from Warren Buffet prevailed.  I like the one above.

This blog entry, however, is a tribute to Sunday morning brunch.  These are amazing experiences especially when invited by family members with great taste.  One of my sons invited my husband and me to join him and his partner at one of the loveliest places in a nearby town for brunch.  Brunch, a combination of breakfast and lunch, simply means breakfast items and a waitstaff to attend to your needs.

A buffet, on the other hand, is a little like a salad bar on steroids.  That’s where you load up a plate until the food teeters because everything looks so good and you don’t want to miss out.  The end result is generally a bloated mid-section.  Not a good look.

Some in our party began with a few Sunday morning Bloody Mary’s.

 I began with some great coffee.

Then we moved on to raw oysters.  These were served with lemon wedges along with some mild vinegar.  Perfect!

Finally, I ordered a herb and cheese omelette.  It was served with lightly dressed lettuce  and some frites that were done to perfection.  For the uninitiated, frites are the name that restaurants give to french fries when they want to charge a bit more.  Big words, obscure words, and foreign words equal higher menu prices.  Generally, worth the cost.

This is not the actual omelette I was served because, as usual, I forgot to take a picture before I dined.  It is a reasonable facsimile.

And finally, there was good conversation and stories of life and adventures.  I’m getting more and more into adventures.  Talking with people who are also choosing experiences over owning stuff is wonderful.  Watching my children develop into such adults is inspiring.  Thanks, kids.  We had a great time.
