Portabla brunch and World Cup finals

July 11, 2010

We scooted down to Portabla to pick up brunch.

Eggs benedict with turkey meatloaf and delicious hollandaise…

Ham, cheese and fried egg sandwich (look at that lovely cheese! And Roux in the background hoping for a bite)…

Perfect with mimosas for watching the World Cup! (Roux is eyeing Justin’s mimosa.)

Justin chose the Netherlands before the Cup started, and I had chosen Spain. So here we are, both of our teams in the finals, trying to be civil while cheering on our teams. (Viva España!!)

Crapton of veggies.

So I really like this post on Zen Habits about…

Hot hot dog

Justin calls this a hot hot dog. That is all.

    Just discovered your site from Abby Try Again’s. Absolutely love! It’s so fun to see another Austinite out and about, and your photos are amazing. Love seeing all the food shots, makes me want to go eat at a lot of places I haven’t yet. Going through all your archives and making a list of places to go… :)

    CHHHEEEEEEEEEEEESE! In fact I’m making parmesan cheese bars right now (there’s powdered sugar, don’t know if it’s supposed to be salty or sweet) and I love how stringy melted cheese is. AWESOME. :D

    And Spain won. D: I didn’t like it because they beat Germany! :(

    Yay, Spain!

    Your food and the kittie are the best. Is the glass on a scanner? Somehow that makes me nervous, and Roux’s staring at it doesn’t help! :-P

      Ha! It kind of looks like a scanner, but it’s actually a lap tray (cushion on one side, writing surface/lamp on the other). Yes, Roux was making me nervous with all his sniff-sniffing of our food. Silly cat, you’d think he knows by now that all he gets is cat food. :)
