Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Last night Chris and I celebrated St. Patty’s day a little early. We went to our friends’ apartment downtown for dinner of corned beef & cabbage! I brought the Irish soda bread and Irish cheddar cheese. It was my first time making the soda bread and it came out FANTASTIC. I didn’t take any shortcuts–the recipe was from one of my co-workers…so this baby is NOT healthy! The healthiest thing in it was the raisins.
Anyway–that was super fun. We didn’t stay out too late–I wanted to get to an early AM spin class this morning.
Chris and I also made plans for brunch this morning at the Prime at Saratoga National. Its restaurant week up in Saratoga so we took advantage of the $20 brunch. Its usually $30, so it was a pretty sweet deal, since it’s a pretty awesome selection of food!
I opted to get an omelet from the omelet station. They have you add your fixings to a small plate and then they made the omelet for you! I got lots of peppers and mushrooms in mine.
I also tried a bit of french toast and home fries, along with fruit!
I also tried the clam chowder and some seafood medley, both were delicious.
Now, my favorite part had to be the dessert table.
They had a chocolate cake, all types of cookies and pastries, and chocolate fondue, with fruit, marshmallows and cream puffs for dipping. The chocolate cake was amazing–thankfully another lady in front of me only took half a slice, so I stole the other half!
Chris and I also split one of these, which was filled with lemon filling. Mmm.
Definitely an indulgent place! They also had corned beef and cabbage since it was St. Patty’s Day, but I think Chris had his fill last night!
The brunch at Prime was awesome, and for $20 at such a fancy place, you can’t beat it. And the service was friendly and fantastic.
Its still restaurant week up there–so take advantage!
