To celebrate Turkey Day, I went to a cardio kickboxing class this morning and then our family went to Rick’s Café, one of our go-to brunch places, to nosh. Do you know how hard it is to find a brunch place that’s open on Turkey Day?
Rick’s is a family-friendly place that serves large portions of typical American diner food. Every breakfast plate comes with two large sides of carbs – a huge-ass bagel and some skillet potatoes. I normally ask to sub out the carbs with some fruit salad but other times I just don’t eat them.
Today, Fitbomb and I shared the Los Altos Scramble (eggs scrambled with ground beef, spinach, green onions, and cream cheese, topped with parmesan cheese)…
…and the Cobb Salad:
On the scramble, I asked the waitress to hold the cream cheese ‘cause that combo just sounds weird. It was a tasty egg dish but I was still hungry afterwards since I didn’t eat the carbs. Plus, it annoys me to pay $10+ for something I can make myself with better quality ingredients. But then, I’d have to cook and wash up so I guess it’s a wash. The Cobb was fine but I’ve definitely had better.
Rick’s Café is in our regular rotation because our kiddies LOVE it so that’s why I allow us to come here even though the food is mediocre. Yes, I’m a good mommy and a food nazi.0
