The U District Hillside Quickies started serving brunch on Saturday (only) and it is really good. It all starts w/ a choice of beverage (bottomless if I rememeber correctly) and muffins. I hit the blueberry jackpot with mine. What you're looking at is not french toast. It's 2 super thick perfectly browned tasty pancakes coated in maple syrup. I'm still dreaming about them.
It shared it's plate with fruit compote and scramble. It was a really unique and delicious scramble. If you aren't a saltoholic, then ask them to use less salt.
Oh yeah! Of course Andy had to order the biscuits and gravy, and I was super crabby because we ususally split our plates. My crabbiness disappeared after my first bite. I hereby proclaim that Hillside has the best biscuits and gravy in Seattle, hands down.
Guava, I really hope that you are reading this right before a meal so that you are forced to whip up a batch of biscuits and gravy. And of course, tater tots.
No pics, but I volunteered at the greyhound booth at the Puyallup farmer's market this weekend. The purpose of the booth is to promote greyhound adoption. Somebody stopped by with an Italian greyhound. They are so tiny compared with the kind you typically see in the US.
I should be getting my next foster soon...
Now that the weather is much better, I love to lay around in the cat cage and knit whilst listening to books on tape. We're currently about 1/3 of the way through Wizards First Rule. We're also watching the TV series based on this book, The Legend of the Seeker. I have already read the book, but figured since Andy was so far behind with his reading that he'd never get to the book. Plus I like being confused with how the book differs from the TV show.
As you can see, the cats are just as leechy outside as they are inside. Poor Andy has to share his lawn chair with the likes of The Judge and Tubs.
Dear Vegan Assistant,
Yes, I am grouchy. Perhaps this wouldn't be so if you did your job and massaged my back instead of annoying me w/ that camera all the time. How is one supposed to enjoy life if the catnip bowl is half full?
