Recipe: Croque Madam (or Monsieur)

Today at TBM central we made Croque Madam

The Croque Madam is a french version of the ham and Swiss melt. My wife was in the mood for a ham and Swiss sandwich and for some reason I wanted to punch it up a bit by fitzing with the recipe. a quick google search lead me to this sandwich, which sounded delightful. It is a french take on the hot ham and cheese sanwich covered in a cheesy sauce and topped with a fried egg. I was missing a key ingredient, the Gruy√®re cheese, so this is an approximate of the recipe. Even without that ingredient it was a delightful surprise. 

Review: Price Hill Chili

Today’s choice off the Breakfast Menu was Price Hill Chili: 

I had a presentation today, which went very well and left me on the West Side of town. I decided to stop into a local chili spot for a quick breakfast. Price Hill Chili is a Westwood institution. It features decent food for a good price. While it is not the trendiest spot in the city you can count on it for a hot meal and great service. 

Recipe: Bacon & Cheese Egg Cups

Today's recipe is Bacon Egg and Cheese Cups:

This is an insanely easy recipe. The one I found online didn't call for anything more than eggs, cheese, and bacon in a muffin tin. All of these items were actually on sale at the local grocer. I actually got this recipe off Tumblr, which I visit frequently because I am an internet junkie. The recipe came from a food blog called, Kirbie's Cravings. I usually tag the recipes I want to try and leave them open in tabs. Because Mother's Day was coming up I knew this would be the perfect addition to the brunch menu.

Recipe: Sweet Rice

Today's recipe was a family staple sweet rice,
Most people would call this rice pudding. Its about the same, but we tend to eat it warm, where others may eat it cold. We also consider it to be a useful addition to any meal, be it as a side dish or a breakfast. The recipe is pretty easy, so I suggest you try it for yourself.

Review: Zoup!

Today’s choice off the Breakfast Menu was Zoup! Fresh Soup Company:

Every now and again a friend will call me to sit down and bend my ear to their tales and troubles. Today was  one of those days where I found myself on the other side of the table while a friend laid out a personal issue. We decided on Zoup! at Stetson Square. It specializes in various soups. They let you taste them before you buy, so you have the chance to try over a dozen different soups. The soups were tasty but not spectacular. It was a pleasant experience for a quick lunch.

Review: Mimi's Cafe

Today’s choice off the Breakfast Menu was Mimi's Cafe

It was super hero weekend around these parts. Avengers dropped, free comic day happened and we threw a super hero themed birthday party for my little guy. I was taking the wife to see the Avengers today and my sister and her beau asked to join in. I insisted that we brunch as a pre-show event. I chose Mimi's because it wasn't far from the Mason Theater. I had been to Mimi's for dinner and the food was decent. I thought I would give them a try for breakfast. 
Mimi's is apparently owned by Bob Evans, which you wouldn't know by the ambiance. It appears to be rather upscale, but suffers the fate of many chain restaurants where they put way too many things on the wall. The menu is very bulky with a variety of  dishes. They serve breakfast all day, but you have to specifically ask for a breakfast menu after a certain time. They will usually hand you the lunch or dinner menus after noon.  
The service was interesti…

Review: It's Just Crepes

Today’s choice off the Breakfast Menu was It's Just Crepes

It was one of those days where I was in between meetings with two hours before I had to be anywhere and nothing to do. The realization that it was nearly 2pm and I had not eaten all day struck me as no surprise. Often when I have a full schedule I forget to sit down and eat. I had to run past the downtown library so I decided to try one of the restaurants on my list. I don't recall what made me decide on "It's Just Crepes" but I did and I was pleasantly surprised. The place offers good food made quickly.
