It's been a fun weekend - after college on Saturday I met up that evening with some friends for our Book Club night. "Book Club" - which also could be called Wine Club!
Then on Sunday Enid, Alice and I met up for an impromptu brunch - arranged late on Saturday. Alice has recently moved house and lives much nearer to Enid and I now so she cycled in to my place.
We have spoke about how in November when we are in Key West we will drink breakfast cocktails every day so I figured we'd have a practice run today.
I made espresso martini's which Enid and Alice found a little too kicky (a little too much vodka?) so to counter this I added a little Baileys which made them more smooth and creamy.
We then went to our usual brunch spot of the M&S restaurant on Grafton Street. The food is just ok there, but it works for us for sitting and chatting for a few hours - particularly if we get one of the nice booths.
I had the smoked salmon bagel which was nice. Afterwards I had a craving for something sweet so I got this Red Velvet cupcake which looks divine doesn't it. I should have read the description of it properly. It was filled with raspberry jam (bleugh) which I do not like. And the cream cheese topping was very bitter. So it was not for me! I'll know better in future.
