New-ish in New Canaan

Canaan-4
A Horatio Welcome

Friends, it is time. Time for the desperately-anticipated Part 2 of Meal’s weekend in New Canaan, from Neal’s second ever day in this illustrious town (hence, “new-ish”). Day 2 in the NC also happened to be Meghan’s birthday, which gave us all the perfect excuse to celebrate with unnecessary amounts of food.

Meghan has the best friends in the entire world, objectively speaking, and they assembled a beautiful birthday brunch bonanza.

After this truly delightful morning, a Birthday Meal had to become Meal on Wheels again and drive back to Boston to reluctantly embrace the reality of work Monday morning. Luckily for me(ghan), Neal had the brilliant idea to end this birthday day with an ice cream trip to Toscanini’s. I got a FREE BIRTHDAY TOPPING, which I maintain should have been an entirely free ice cream, but, as in life, I took what I could get.

All in all, it was a deeply successful weekend that perfectly encapsulated the spirit of this blog: great food and greater friends.

Pre-Meal Cocktail

Judges Jr
Coolest umbrellas you’ll ever see

Well, friends, it’s been quite the day for Meal, taste-wise. Last night, we settled in for an evening of PnR and had a single Judge, Jr. apiece. This was the classiest beverage we’ve ever had together, so the occasion called for some tiny drink umbrellas that almost reached the liquid surface.

The next morning, Neal made yet another round of his now-infamous french toast before Meghan traipsed off to do stuff. Then, in a stroke of inspiration, he scrambled up the remaining French toast egg batter situation into sweetly scrambled cinnamon eggs. [See why I like him? – Meghan].

Jellin with Meal

Hello world! It is us, Meal, checking in for our VERY FIRST BLOG POST.

A Meal in the wild.

This morning, it was our sheer pleasure to welcome some of our favorite people and featured guests, Jellin (Jenn+Collin), into Meghan’s home for brunch.

The menu:

  • French toast for which Neal made HOMEMADE BREAD
  • Bacon (MEAT)
  • Berries of various persuasions, provided by Jellin
  • Tea (for a brunch tea party)

Hope you enjoyed your first meal with Meal as much as we did.
