Day 739 : Brunch stateside

There's something about the concept of brunch that I just adore -- part relaxation, partly just always a great time, and well of course the eggs. How can you go wrong with kicking off the weekend with a spicy bloody Mary and a fabulous omelet?

I don't think you can! That is unless it was last weekend and I was on a beach in Southern Thailand and then there's little else that can be better than the sound of the ocean and the warmth of the sun radiating on your back. Brunch with a good friend here in Manhattan is a nice runner-up though!

This morning at a casual Uptown diner, we sat down to coffees, bloody Mary's and Orange juice for her. Looking at the many omelette suggestions, I decided to stray from my normal choice -- something with smoked fish and eggs...Instead how about an egg white omelette with wild mushrooms, spinach, Parmesan, pine nuts and homemade pesto? It surely was an aromatic, flavorful and herbaceous way to start off the weekend and with temperatures here reaching into the lower 50s, you almost could imagine that it wasn't late February and your beach going days were closer than you thought!

Here's to a great weekend folks!
