Hi Jackie! I missed the brunch menu challenge but it seems you did great and had such a wonderful time with your mom and family. Was it a special brunch for your mother? You're right about each step making a difference. I take that into consideration when I'm looking for a parking place and choose a spot waaaaay down at the end over one that's closer.

First and foremost I want to say thank you again to all the ladies who took the time to respond to my Brunch menu challenge! Your ideas were so helpful! And a special THANKS to Terri for the e-mail this morning!!! It was great to have a positive frame of mind before I walked out the door!

Lets get the food out of the way~~~I order the portabella mushroom, roasted red pepper, basil and goat cheese sandwich, no oil no mayo on the bread! I had the salad with lemon shallot vinaigrette instead of the fries ! And opted to skip the appetizers and dessert! I ate half the sandwich and salad at the restaurant and the other half when I got home! The approximate total calories for the entire sandwich I figured to be about 625! I tried to estimate on the high end of things just to be safe! The food was INCREDIBLE!!!!!! Everyone enjoyed their meals and the service was great!!! I didnít drink alcohol but they did serve a Mango Mojitto that seems to go over real well!

On a more significant note~~~ my mother had an excellent time and was totally surprised when we got the restaurant ! She a tough lady to keep in the dark about anything! I think the surprise was blown when, as we were walking toward the restaurant she recognized her sisterís car!! UGH!!! Timing is everything! Her boyfriend pulled in, late as usual and much to her surprise! But hereís another Hooray for me!! Instead of driving, I dropped off the cake at the restaurant, walked to my motherís house, and then she and I walked back the restaurant! It was only about a 10 minute walk each way but every extra step helps!!! And it gave us some time together even if just a few minutes!

Anyways Iím rambling as usual! Hope everyone has a wonderful holiday weekend! Thanks you all again!
