After getting home from my folks place slightly later than planned, I didn’t really do much relaxing on Saturday. So Sunday became my chill out day.
It started as many of my weekends do; getting brunch in Somerville. Davis Square, this time, at the Foundry. They always have a brunch Buffet on Sunday mornings, but this time they went all out – see, the usual plan on the chef’s part is to do a halfsies thing. Partially brunch buffet, and partially a brunch menu. Both are really good, but neither one is particularly extensive. This time though, they cut the menu out completely, instead focusing in on creating a full-on brunch menu. Sausage and gravy biscuits? Yep, we got it. Bacon and Sausage? Ohh hell yes. Omelette Station and prime-rib carving dock? Ohh you best believe it’s done medium rare.
So I ate, drank coffee, and was merry playing with my fancy new camera (Ed Note: expect Ben to post some silly “camera review” thing later). It was nice, and I even had the Chef come out to ask how I liked the new style of breakfast. I can’t tell if she was just asking everyone, or if I’ve shown up often enough that they think I’m someone important.
Either way, I got an extra little nice surprise on the walk home – I took a slightly different path than I usually take, and it made all the difference… (poem poem poem)
It was open-garden day in Somerville! Lots of small gardens were open to us plebeians, but this one caught my eye the most – it’s an amazing fusion of a standard Asian scholars garden, and a more rustic New England style; the husband works with rocks, and the wife works with the plants and planters. I was lucky enough to chat with them for a while, and even get a few pictures…
