On Easter Sunday we gathered with Steven's brother Bob and our good friend Lea for a little Easter brunch at Dewey Street. Steven runs http://www.our-home-improvements.blogspot.com/ from there. It was a gorgeous Easter Sunday so we started with bloody marys on the deck.
Then we moved inside to the breakfast counter where Steven was serving belgian waffles and other delights.
A pretty presentation.
The waffles were so incredibly delicious that I could not possibly do them justice with mere words. The batter was made the night before and then a few final ingredients were added on Sunday just before he started baking them. They were very light, almost like a Scandanavian Rosette Cookie. He served a sweet and savory brunch with the waffles being sweet and a hash with poached eggs as the savory. Everything was scrumptious. I particularly liked these red plates for the waffles and strawberries. I'm usually not a fan of colored plates or plates with any sort of design because I think they interfere with the presentation of the food, which to me is as important as the taste of what I am serving. But in this case, they work.
Finally, I would be remiss if I did not include the picture of the waffle plate with Bob's finger proudly reaching for maybe a bit of whipped cream. Be careful when you are around blogger's. Anything and everything is usually be filmed.
