We would suggest ordering the grilled cheese Mac n cheese. It is a delicious start to your weekend. Square Peg is a great center city brunch places featuring southern food. Being southern girls (Virginian) this place is right up our alley!
To start off, we had the warm cinnamon donuts ( incredible) and a fruit salad (generic, but detoxifying :), we then split the chilaquiles (overall was ok- but with excellent sauce) and the grilled cheese Mac n cheese ( earth-shattering explosion of deliciousness).
The Philadelphia brunch scene is almost certainly ruled by a Day by Day, but we’d say Square Peg is definitely worth a visit or two.
On a recent trip to San Francisco, we made a quick stop at Le Garage, an excellent restaurant in Sauselito. The cheese plate was served with delicious bread and some sweet and pleasantly gritty quince paste. It was a great pairing. The croque monsieur was toasty-delicious, which is definitely a word 🙂
The neat thing is that it is literally a garage! It’s got a big red garage door and everything!
This dish is called ‘khoreshteh bademjan ‘ in Farsi. Normally, cooks slave for around two hours to make this dish but using a slow cooker, this stew takes far less time and if possible, tastes even more delicious.
Stewed tomatoes, chunks of lamb, and fried eggplant, served over a bed of white basmati rice makes an excellent lunch or dinner. Search for this Persian recipe online 🙂
This is an onion-loaded pulled chicken done Indian-style. One of us has a slight chip addiction, but the other prefers to eat it in its proper form, atop a mound of rice.
I would like to take this time to announce my love affair with mini nutella. They are the perfect size to take to lunch, as I tend to eat the stuff like pudding. Its delicious, but nauseating when taken in high doses!
This meal was a perfect lunch. The chicken was encrusted with almond meal and fried in trader joe’s coconut oil. The sauce is roasted red pepper and goat cheese. For crunch, sunflower seeds on A simple salad completes a delicious and nutritious meal 🙂
The recipe for the kitchen was basically taken directly from Circle B Kitchen
Almond Crusted Chicken with Roasted Red Pepper Sauce
- 4 boneless chicken breasts, or chicken tenders
- 1/2 cup almond meal
- salt, pepper, other spices you like
- egg for egg wash (optional)
- 1 roasted red pepper (can be canned)
- at least 1 tbsp goat cheese (but you can never have too much goat cheese!)
- coconut oil for sauteeing
- Combine the almond meal with salt, pepper, and any other spices you like
- If the chicken pieces are not even, flatten them. This is very important for even cooking.
- If you prefer to use an egg wash, dip the chicken in the egg wash.
- Coat the chicken with the almond meal mixture
- Pre-heat the saute pan and melt the coconut butter. When it is hot, start to sautee the chicken on one side
- While the chicken cooks, make the quick sauce. Blend the pepper and goat cheese together. Add any spices you like.
- Flip the chicken to brown on the other side
- When the chicken is cooked through, serve with the red pepper sauce on top
