Since I spent Thanksgiving Day with my husbands family, I did not get to see my brother.
However, the Saturday after Thanksgiving, my brother and I have a tradition of going out for brunch and then our Christmas trees.
We had always gone to the same place for brunch, but we had not thought it was too good the last few times. My SIL found a new St. Louis restaurant named Salt.
Let's just say.....she did good!
It is in a old mansion across from the St. Louis Basilica
They had several cheese plates, which I could not pass up. It reminded me of Paris.
I had the blue cheese, Mr. the Italian and my brother the Wisconsin Cheddar.
homemade orange marmalade with salted almonds, raisins,
and toasted french bread, it was divine!
They are know for cooking in duck fat....and their fries and
fried chicken have been rated the best in St. Louis.
So my SIL chose....
with homemade ketchup and mayo
how about some eggs benedict with ham salad?
yes, they were great. good thing this was breakfast and lunch
Mr. and my brother got omelet's
Then it was on to the usual spot to get our Frazier Fur
nice and full, great top and straight bottom. Fits Mr. criteria.
I always wonder what people think when they see us driving by
with two trees on top?
Today will be putting away the Fall, laundry and hauling up Christmas.
It has really turned cold out....usually we put the outdoor lights up today, not
sure if I can talk Mr. into it or not!
Have a wonderful Sunday!
