A Bushwick Brunch.

December 13, 2010

My Sundays have recently been falling into a bit of a pattern. The alcohol thats still in my system, wakes me up at the ungodly hour of 9 a.m. I go out to the living room to recollect my actions of Saturday, with my room mate James. It always calls for coffee.

My neighborhood doesn’t have too many sit down restaurant options. Its fine because I could eat at the only one we do have pretty much everyday if I had the choice.

Northeast Kingdom is dimly  lit and looks like a lodge in Vermont. The coffee is good. The food is decently priced. Their waiting area plays Looney Toons by a fireplace. The servers are always somehow familiar and comforting. And best of all, its pretty much right downstairs from me.

James and I go there almost every Sunday. Sometimes its just us staring at the bar in silence, and sometimes we take our out of town visitors to show them that although our neighborhood still looks pretty sketchy, we have the redeeming factor of a classy looking place like Northeast!

This Sunday was a bit of  treat since our other room mate, Naomi, was around. Along with an old friend of James’ from Texas. Speaking of treats, I find it interesting to add in the fact that Naomi had taken a couple of special cookies before we headed down for breakfast.

I decided to document it because Naomi is moving out shortly, and although all three of us are friends, we’ve never all gone out for a meal before.

So this was the first and last room mate brunch in this chapter of my life.


A Dignified Version of Eggs and Ketchup (69/365)

February 8, 2010

I’m not a fan of eggs. I find them most bearable drenched in hollandaise sauce or ketchup. yes….ketchup. This morning, I made what is pretty much the more dignified version eggs with ketchup.

Poached eggs in a simple tomato sauce.

I’ve already had way too much coffee, and eaten all the chocolate out of some vegan cookie. I’ve been listening to Charles Bronson in my highly caffeinated state and now Im pretty sure I could sprint from Massachusetts back to New York, before dark.

Heres some genius Charles Bronson song titles:
