brunch and fall coffee round-up!

I was so inspired to post earlier, and I made the mistake of switching on the tv, turning on my electric blanket (we're holding out on the heat in the apartment), and cozying up with....the internet.  *shame*

I wish I could say that I was distracted by a book (I've been meaning to start A Widow For One Year), or, you know, my grad class readings (uhoh), or even my homework.  But no - it was the internet that got me.  Oy.

Anyway, last Sunday my mom and I went out to brunch at the aforementioned Flavour Cafe.  We both ordered The F Bomb breakfast sandwich, described on their menu as "Flavour's very own breakfast sandwich.. 2 eggs, provolone cheese, our special sauce on a hard roll".  It was delicious!  The roll was what got me.  Rolls can make or break a sandwich for me.  I hate the really bready, starchy, almost tough rolls that are sometimes passed off as hard rolls.  I'm the girl who only uses half a hamburger bun for hamburgers.  But this roll was much more of a croissant/hard roll hybrid in terms of its texture and taste....deliciously flaky and tender.  Yum!

I also ordered the Pumpkin Spice Latte to add to my now-growing list of fall-themed beverages that were had.  The presentation was lovely, I'm a huge fan of whipped cream, as are most people!  And the drink itself was not overly sweet, which I'm always afraid of when drinking a flavored coffee drink.  I'll definitely be going back for more of this one as well.  I love anything pumpkin flavored!  Next up on the list is one of the campus cafe's drinks - Pumpkin Chai Latte.

Now, time to get to bed...working out with Julie at 7:30am tomorrow.  Eek!

I have the same problem with the internet; it is the bane of my existence when it comes to getting things done. And I completely agree with you about the whole roll issue. A good roll makes a sandwich exponentially better. There is actually this little deli down the street from Mike's house here in Rochester which makes AMAZING sandwiches, and their rolls are perfection--I'll have to take you there when you come visit me (which you better do! :-P) And that pumpkin latte sounds amaaaazingggg!

This breakfast was so simple, yet so good, and yes, HUGE difference in the roll causes either a catastrophe or nirvana. Also, seeing my lovely daugher was a HUGE plus!!!xoxo
