Water's Edge Resort and Spa - Sunday Brunch - Westbrook, CT
Sunday brunch is a favorite meal of mine. Well, almost every meal is a favorite of mine but don't tell anyone! That said, someone in the house (alright, yes it was me) wanted to go to brunch to celebrate January, burn some birthday cash, drink some mimosa's, and enjoy some wonderful food at one of my favorite places on the shoreline of Connecticut. My husband was eager to enjoy the food as well - thank God!
The last couple of times we were here for brunch it was for a holiday event, like Father's Day or Easter. We expected that it would be scaled back some for a normal Sunday. Not!
I did say I was Paleo right? Here are the
And here is someone else's (liar) plate with the beautiful crepe that was filled with blueberries, coconut, and I think it was almond pieces - or that's what I wanted it to be... and it was flamed at the end with Grand Marnier. Holy smokes! Well, it didn't actually smoke -- it -- just -- flamed! See all the other good stuff on the plate next to it - like lox and poached salmon, and cucs, and, and, well good stuff!!!
Here are some more of those awesome veggies that we Paleo people can't get enough of. And they made them look so pretty too. Awwwwww. Wait - is that where the mimosa is supposed to go? Hmmmm, I think I need to try that next time.
Ahhhhhh - finally, some bubbly. Yes, I had a mimosa but I drank it so fast you couldn't even see the orange! Hah! Not wanting to overdo on the fructose in the OJ, I settled for plain champagne for the second one. Such happy-ness!
What Paleo Goddess wouldn't be happy with this meaty, beefy, array of protein? OK OK the photo doesn't do it justice, I guess you had to be there. But I could see the juiciness of the lamb, the roast beast, and the pork. I was just so overjoyed with the choice of the lamb I couldn't see straight. Geez, the mustard and the white stuff looks so BIG doesn't it - LOL? I wasn't having ANY of that stuff...
And, for the finale, the hubby and I shared a small plate of desserts. I had one. Really! They were just the right touch of sweetness. Well, that means that hubby had the rest. Yes he did!
Thank you Water's Edge for excellent food and as always, wonderful service.
