Sunday Brunch at Water's Edge


Delicious surprise!
Water's Edge brunch at Shem Creek
Chocolate Cheesecake

After a delectable brunch I went looking for dessert, but was dismayed to find none.  I jokingly mentioned to Britt, a manager-type. that I needed chocolate after a meal.  Minutes later he surprised me with a chocolate cheesecake large enough to be shared at our table.  It was terrific.

I wisely chose a small plate and filled it with asparagus and sausage and (top right clockwise) grits and shrimp with a hot sauce, smoked salmon and sauce, potatoes, Crab Cake Benedict with Hollandaise sauce and biscuits with gravy.  The buffet was so very good!  I think that I'll go back and make sure that Britt knows I am patronizing the place again!!

If you want to eat well, come to this part of the country!!

"D" is for DELICIOUS and DELECTABLE at ABC WEDNESDAY

May my DARLIN' Grandson DOMINIQUE have a great birthday!!

  8. Yum...now that is a hearty breakfast!
    Kate, David isn't a chef he's just a "foodie" like me and Julie and Dave. He loves to entertain.

  9. I gained 5 pounds just looking at this post! So decadent and delicious. Are you sure it's legal and moral for Minnesotans to eat such goodies?

  10. Everything looks so good! Hope Dominique has a wonderful birthday.

    I am just as confused as you are about "Captain Canada". The building with the sign was closed that day and there was no one around to ask, I will try to discover the truth.

  13. Suzi, Can't wait to see you two again! Can't wait to see your new "digs!" We had a great time; the photos I took of you and Kirby were too hurried, didn't turn out well, so you'll have to pose again!

  20. I'm starting to think that this is the perfect way to enjoy food: photos of it, on someone else's plate. Of course, it's hurrying my plans for lunch, but thankfully there isn't a buffet nearby. . .

  30. The word Chocolate begins with the letter C but yes, I admit that it is both Delish and Delectible. Pardon me, I gotta run grab me a piece of that yummy candy I have stowed away.
