I seriously can't wait to try the Braised Pork during our July visit. I don't care if it is going to be 100 degrees outside

Also, can someone tell me - how do I quote just one picture because I suck at this message board thing and I have no idea what I am doing

House of Blues Sunday Gospel Brunch



Listen to the joyous music of top gospel groups as you feast on all-you-care-to-eat Southern-style fare. The buffet includes such favorites as chicken jambalaya, chilled prawns, BBQ chicken and prime rib, as well as scrambled eggs, biscuits and gravy, bread pudding and made-to-order omelets.












Jim said, "Great food! Ate mine before I took the pic, only half an omelet left. Wish our church had food this good."

Not the most religious person out there, but that looks like a great time. There went one of my spur or the moment Dinners for DTD. Now I may have to take one for the dis and eat at Planet Hollywood when I'm there.

You really don't need to be religious....I am not and really enjoyed it. It is not "in your face." Just lots of great music and food.

Now for our First Update of the Day, sent to us by nicole0992.


This is from their lunch yesterday at...








A menu pic...











"We ordered bowls of the beef tortellini in broth to start. So plain yet so perfect! The broth is wonderfully seasoned yet not salty. The tortellini are so delicious."







"We then ordered a Mezzo Metro size Margherita Pizza to share between the 4 of us that were dining at this meal."








"The pizza was as delicious as always. Perfectly cooked, thin but with a crunchy crust."





















"Two of us ended the meal with pistachio gelato. Yum, our favorite. This version is creamy, delicate flavor of pistachio with lots of crushed pistachio nuts throughout the gelato."

Had breakfast in the room from Contempo Cafe, both had the Bounty platter that was eggs with cheese, bacon and turkey sausage, fried potatoes, french toast, and a biscuit."
Sorry, Honey! I liked the Bounty platter. Especially the French toast!!




Quote:
Another Contempo Cafe breakfast - ham, egg, and cheese sandwich with breakfast potatoes. Much better than the Bounty platter.
I didn't like this sandwich. It was huge and hot but the ham to egg ratio was way off on the ham side.

Next up are some updates from Amy (atisikitabasket).


First is their dinner at...



Raglan Road






"We love the soda bread with the reduction dip. The first time we ate here it took a bit to get used to it, but now it is our favorite part of the meal."







It's not bleedin' Chowder!



"I had the "it's not bleedin chowder". Delicious as always, it is my favorite thing ever!"






Serious Steak – 10 oz. sirloin topped with Irish whiskey marmalade glaze, with fresh basil oil, & topped with beer battered onion rings.








"Hubby and son both got the Serious Sirloin with fries. They loved them."









"DD got the kids fish and chips and they let her get a bowl of just strawberries for dessert."



"Hubby got a kids butterscotch sundae and DS got a chocolate chip cookie.
Also I had the Sangria which was very nice. For my dessert, I think it was the Dundon's Delight? It is a raspberry meringue with ice cream, it was so yummy!!!"






Dundon's Delight
Raspberry pavlova with vanilla pod ice cream and raspberry sauce

"We all got the fried chicken. One with corn and mashed potatoes, one with mashed potatoes and green beans and one with corn and fries. Very Tasty."













"DD really had hard time this trip eating. She is very picky but they were nice enough to do a veggie platter with a salad for her. She got corn, green beans and a garden salad. She loved it!! The only one that got dessert was my DH. He got the dad's sundae but no picture of it, sorry!"
