Sunday Traditions

We are Sunday brunch people.  It doesn't happen every Sunday, but a good 3 out of 4 Sundays a month, we start off a lazy Sunday morning with brunch at one of our favorite diners.  There are three choices within about 5-10 miles of us and we try to rotate depending on what we are in the mood for that Sunday.  The diner closest to us has excellent french toast (one of my favorites), another one wins because it is the cheapest choice, and the third diner is farthest away but has a lot of southern foods we enjoy that the other two don't have.

Today, we chose the diner furthest from our house, Punchy's Diner, for our breakfast excursion.  It is a 50's style diner that has some great breakfast and lunch choices.  Today, we sat at the counter and watched the organized chaos of food flying out the kitchen windows and a whirlwind of waitresses keeping the patrons happy and full of good food.  I enjoyed some eggs, country-fried steak and hash browns while Brian enjoyed a similar breakfast, substituting chicken fried chicken with his meal.  The food was a delicious, stick-to-your ribs kind of breakfast and always a great way to start off a Sunday.  After breakfast, I picked up my Sunday paper, a large coffee and we headed home to relax and enjoy another beautiful day here in Charlotte.

These small little traditions always bring an extra bit of enjoyment to the weekend and is a nice way to start wrapping things up before another Monday approaches.  As for this evening, it's going to be burgers on the grill and maybe watching some of the Grammys.  I can't stand award shows but since this one includes live performances, I may at least catch some of that.  Then again, The Walking Dead starts up again tonight so that may capture my attention instead.

Until next time...

It's nice to have those sorts of traditions.

We toggled back and forth between Grammy's and Walking Dead. Unfortunately, because of the toggling, I missed all of the musical performances that I wanted to see.

I love Sunday brunch too! We've been going to Ikea a lot - definitely the cheapest brunch around. :)
