Blog Reader Appreciation Part 25:
Endgrain (again)

You know that I have always been one for trying new things.

Like, moving across the country.  Starting a new career.  Eating the pink Starbursts BEFORE the orange ones. (Although that last one didn't work out too well.)

The point is, I'm not afraid to try something new... but sometimes, the old tried and true works just fine too.  I don't have any new fabulous brunch spot to share with you today because, well, I already shared this one a few weeks ago.

But not surprisingly, it was just as good the second time around.

So this one is for all of you out there, the ones who could be doing something different but just aren't.  Because when you got a good thing going, why mix it up?

So no matter what new thing you're just not having, don't worry.  I've got something here for you.

I hate to say this, but if you grew up in the 90's.... you're going to have to.

Oh, the irony.

Last week, one of my readers (Alyssa) mentioned that her gluten-rejecting body was angry at all the muffins toying with her emotions.  (Okay, I just put words in her mouth; she did say her body rejected gluten though.)

But goods news: you don't need to try new hippie health foods.  You can have your cake... err, muffin... and eat it too!

#2. Easy Gluten Free Biscuit Donuts via Gluten Free on a Shoestring
#3. Gluten Free Biscuits Your Homebased Mom

So don't get a new one; make yours better.  (Link compliments of Lindsay.)

If you don't want to try a "new" blogging class, it means that you have an "old" blogging class... which is completely unnecessary.  Taylor already said everything you need to know.

No need for fiction.  Real life is more beautiful and heartbreaking than anything on Lifetime. (Warning: some of these are pretty powerful/disturbing.)

Like I always say: if it holds your gravy, stick with the biscuits you know.

Okay, I never have said that.  Literally, ever.  But I wanted to pretend I have to justify a brunch location repeat this weekend.  I did spice it up though, with a change in company.

This weekend, I went to Endgrain with my friends Emily, Heather, and Charlie.  "The" Charlie Brown, that is, sometimes known on the streets by his common name, peanut butter, peanut, and chocolate home-baked doughnut.

The great thing about brunching with girls is that you aren't the only one taking pictures for social media purposes.  Also, girls love sharing dishes so that means you get to try three times the food you'd normally get.

So when our meals came out, we played an exciting game of musical chairs, biscuit sandwich style (which is, in case you didn't know, the best style).  I got a sandwich with charred trout, Emily got a soft-boiled egg 'wich (soft-boiled egg, cucumber and radish, whipped herb butter, and black garlic vinaigrette) and Heather got the fried chicken (fried chicken, smoked mashed potato, pork gravy, greens) sans gravy.

They were all brilliant.  I liked mine the best, although it did taste oddly familiar.  It wasn't until I started writing this post that I realized that I ordered the exact same sandwich I had a few weeks ago...

... only that one had included "Smoked Arctic Char" instead of trout (although they both look suspiciously similar if you ask me).

But I guess that is really neither here nor there; if nothing else, at least I'm a woman who knows what she likes.

So that's enough about biscuits, I think.  It's about that time to carry onward to Monday.  (Don't blame me; I asked for another Sunday but they said no.)

You've got this week.  I can feel it.

Want more tea? Have a second cup!
