Weekend Seven: New Year, New Brunch

This weekend was a bit of a busy one. If that wasn't enough, many places were closed for the holidays. (We're looking at you, Crave, with your website saying "Come on in! We're open!" and the sign on the door saying "No brunch for you! We're closed!") After a brief walkabout, we decided to make brunch ourselves.

Catie loves brunch + Dave loves brunch = We love brunch.
We had stopped in at Solly's (the Main Street location) to pick up some snacks for a party, and we had some left over. Catie's favourite bagel, the Mishmash, and my favourite, the Sesame, both went well with the chive-and-garlic cream cheese. We split a cinnamon bun for dessert, adding a generous dollop of cream cheese icing, and I finished with an orange.

Yes, the yellow arborite table in the photo is the background for the blog.

Regretfully, we were so hungry for brunch this morning that no pictures were taken of the food, only of the aftermath. I'm sure that you, dear reader, can imagine crispy bagels piled high with cream cheese, a mountain of cinnamon bun capped with icing, and a wedge of juicy orange.

Was this the perfect brunch? It was easy, and eating in front of the fire was a nice change. However, the Quest for the Perfect Brunch will continue next week...
