We headed to First Watch just north of us on N Black Canyon Hwy for breakfast this morning. First Watch is a restaurant chain based in Bradenton FL and with three locations in the Phoenix area. The 105 store chain operates in 17 states. Elaine had French Toast (custard-dipped, thick-cut brioche bread topped with whipped butter and powdered cinnamon sugar) and some sausage for me and the boys. I had Barbacao Benedict (two poached cage-free eggs atop toasted ciabatta with seasoned braised beef Barbacoa, hollandaise, sliced avocado and fresh cilantro. Served with pico de gallo and lemon dressed organic mixed greens.)
Then this evening we went out yet again for supper; that’s twice in two days! This time it was with a group of folks from Royal Palm to celebrate the August birthday crowd. Besides me, there was Mary Caraher, Mary McDougale, and Vicky King. Those who came to help celebrate were Bill Caraher, Marv Fitchett, Agnes Volk, Mitzi Wrona, Sharlene Froberg, Gail Brazell, John Bruehler, Bill and Nancy Schuling, Rick and Jan Schirripa, Jill Nelson, and Vaneddie Jones. We went to The Horny Toad out in Cave Creek; a long ride but worth it for the food. It was a great time and a good get together with friends.
