Feast: Bloggy Brunch

On Sunday I drove into Toronto to see Spamalot again. I loved it so much the first time, that I refused to sell my subscription ticket (yeah, that was me on the phone during intermission last month leaving a highly excited message on my friend's voicemail begging her to NOT sell my ticket...and good thing I called because someone asked her the next day if it was still available...I know, I know, I'm selfish and should have let someone else see the show, since it's closing in less than a month...but it's so rare for me to be so enthusiastic about a Mirvish offering). It was just as good the second time and I'm still finding confetti in my purse...Zeus is also finding the papery bits...especially the shiny ones...he's not sure what to do with them.


Anyway, I thought it would be a good opportunity for another bloggy meal. This time my brunchy companion was Lea of Canada Eats. This new online food magazine has the feel of a blog. And, like all foodblogs I know of, it's about a love of food and new edible experiences.

Lea is an absolute sweetheart. She's bright, articulate and intelligent. Plus (most importantly), she put up with my pre-caffinated, I-got-up-far-too-early-to-drive-to-TO-so-I-could-get-a-free-parking-spot-at-my-friend's-apartment-before-all-the-Taste of the Danforth-diners-took-all-the-parking babblings. We talked about this and that, places we've been to, things we've read, Canada Eats, and of course food and the politics of foodblogging.

We met at Over Easy (yes, I look for any and every excuse to go there). I had the full English (I love everything about it, but especially the toasted malt bread) (above, left). Lea had a salad with her eggs florentine (above, right). It was all good.

cheers!
