Breakfast at the Westin

by Alaina on March 31, 2012 · 5 comments

This morning I had the pleasure of starting the day off right with a blogger breakfast at the Huntington in the Westin Copley Place Hotel.

David and I arrived a few minutes late and there were already other bloggers around the table, enjoying morning beverages and small bites that were provided by the chef.

The platter was of seasonal, fresh fruit, in “brick” form, a delicious fruity smoothie and crème brulee oatmeal. The oatmeal was definitely my favorite! I loved the burnt sugar flavor.

The breakfast was set up buffet style, but we had the option to choose off of the a la carte menu too. I was all about the buffet. My first plate was buttermilk pancakes with syrup, pineapple chunks and breakfast potatoes. The pancakes were SO good! They were so sweet, I swear they were made with cake batter. Everything was devoured, without a crumb left.

My second plate was a vegetarian frittata, wheat toast with raspberry jelly, and a banana.

For the table, they ordered “The Copley” which was a tasting plate with a Belgian waffle, eggs benedict, fruit plate and a mango smoothie. We each got our own smoothie which was delicious! They also had hash browns (which is in my above plate) and corned beef hash.

Everything was seriously, truly delicious. It’s a breakfast-only place located right off the lobby of the hotel, but I would consider going here for breakfast, even coming as a non-guest. It’s always a buffet, with the menu options, and on the weekends they have an omelet and Belgian waffle station.

Thank you to the Westin for the invite to this delicious breakfast! It kept me so full, I wasn’t hungry for lunch until 3pm! This breakfast was complimentary but my opinions are that of my own.

The Huntington is located on the second floor of the Westin Copley Place on 10 Huntington Avenue.

House Update

Gah, it’s still there! But I think the demo permit is almost ours. David and I have been working on taking down trees on the south side of the house. Need all the light we can get for our solar panels! We’ve also had some of our purchases made for the house so that when it is down, we can get them in. What we’ve purchased: kitchen appliances, countertops, and the building materials for the house itself.

My fuel for tree-chopping and top soil-filling, a veggie sub with lettuce, green peppers, banana peppers, pickles, onions, provolone cheese and mustard.

Ok, so David did most of the tree cutting, but someone had to clear out the dirt around the stump so that he could get the stump grinder in! Sarcastic smile

Busy last few days, but I’m looking forward to a lazy day tomorrow. Well, maybe I’ll try and get a run in. I haven’t ran in a while!

How has your weekend been? Do you enjoy doing manual labor? A few hours of yard work is ok, but 14 hours in two days is a lot. Smile with tongue out

I remember when we broke ground on our house. It was the most exciting day but the beginning of an unforgettable process. Make sure you keep documenting these milestones with the house. It’s going to make a nice photo book someday. :)

I had a jam-packed day yesterday so I ended up passing on this brunch, but it looks like it was lovely!
