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.
Crepeful and grateful
Horatio hogged the whipped cream.
MEAT and eggs.
Meghan has the best friends in the entire world, objectively speaking, and they assembled a beautiful birthday brunch bonanza.
MY FAVORITE PEOPLE (especially Horatio)

A #flawless birthday candle
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.
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.
French Toast round 3…in a week
Neal decided to bake some bread
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].
