I’m often asked, what is your favorite place to eat?
Makes sense right, as I blog about food, eat food, check out the new and the old “hot” places. Duh.
I read articles about food, new restaurants and local chefs’ accomplishments on the daily.
I’d rather be lost in a pile of recipes or Foodnetwork’s archives than be stuck with my daily work. (shhh)
Cookbooks are my secret pleasure… reading them. Yes I read them…. I don’t really cook with them, as following a recipe is not for me; I’m a pinch there, squirt there, cup or two here kinda girl.
For the most part, my pinches, squirts and random cups work out.
A few days ago, when asked where my favorite place to brunch was… I blanked. I’d like to blame the oodles of cold medicine I was under the influence of…. however it may also be due to the fact that I haven’t brunched in a while! Shocking. I know. I am the self proclaimed bruncher and would gladly wear any article of clothing, exclaiming, “But First, Brunch!” should you happen to want to send me such article of clothing… really I’ll take them 😉
The only cure to this mind fart is of course, to go BRUNCH!
So off to Birchwood Cafe we went. Please slap my hand because it has taken me far too long to try this place out. Birchwood’s commitment to real, local and community shines true on your plate.
The commitment is apparent in that first bite. And that first sip of an afternoon cocktail.
I had to try the Birchwood Beef Burger… with housemade ketchup, mustard and onion, pickled cucumbers, and lettuce on a birdseed bun. (I have this thing with burgers)
To sip on the side I had the Rosemary Elderberry Mimosa. Just yum. I’ll take another and another please!
If you are like me, and Birchwood Cafe is still on your must try list, perhaps check it off this weekend? 🙂
