Mini Update! November 15th

Can't say that I'm back for good, but I do plan on still updating the blog whenever I can! Things are going a little better for me now. This morning (well, actually afternoon) I decided to finally go to brunch at Quantum Leap. I had been wanting to try their brunch ever since last month's blog dinner there, and since we had a nice warm, non-rainy day, I decided to take a walk into the village and check it out! The place was really full, but I got a table right away (the service is really great there btw!).

I got the french toast combo, which was french toast, scrambled eggs (or tofu if you preferred), and 3 soy links (all for under $10 bucks!). Plus I got a glass of orange juice with it (not pictured). Sorry the pic didn't come out that well, the lighting was not the best in the restaurant!


I had one of those awful period related migraines yesterday and didn't eat much at all, but I felt all better today and my appetite was back! This was a really delicious, filling meal. The french toast was delicious, the eggs were good, and the soy links were really tasty too (and I'm not a huge fan of fake meats, but these were great). Quantum Leap advertises a "healthy" brunch outside, and I really felt that it was. So if any bloggers want to arrange a blog brunch there in the near future, I'm all for it! :)

As for Peanut, he's been doing well. He turned 8 months old on November 13th (if you can believe it!). He was having his brunch when I got home...


The other pressing issue in my life now is that in January I'm going to be moving again. And as it is, November is half over. That means that a LOT of work is headed my way in the very near future. That's why I'm not going to have as much time for the blog. We're even spending our holidays at home this year. Even though we'll still be moving in the NYC area (right now we're thinking Brooklyn), apartment/house hunting is very time consuming, not to mention the packing and arranging everything! So please bare with me! xo

P.S. ~ Being the nerd and foodie that I am, I'm already looking forward to all the new veggie restaurants to check out once I live in Brooklyn! :)

The idea of saying you live in Brooklyn is the coolest thing ever to me. Try to enjoy the move, even though it truly is a MAJOR hassle!
