Some of my friends and I gathered together for Sunday Brunch in honor of the holidays.  It was held in Oakland, California at Scott’s Seafood Restaurant.

The brunch offered four different selections of salmon (I gravitated towards the smoked and fresh), roasted prime rib, ham, jambalaya, gumbo, four different kinds of eggs benedict (the crabcake one was the bomb), the usual sausage, bacon, and scrambled eggs (with cream cheese and salmon), different quiches, seafood and mushroom pie, pastries, decadent dessert bar, fruits, and cheeses.  Our server was Marco Antonio who kept our champagne glasses topped off with mimosas, and I was cajoled to use my bedroom voice to lure and thank Marco Antonio for his generosity with the champagne and overall great service.

While the food was pretty good, the company was even better.  We traded stories and caught up with each others’ lives.  We met at 10:30 a.m. and It was nearly 3:00 p.m. when we parted.

I am grateful to have spent some precious time with my friends.
