Lazy Sunday (208.4)

Omelette XavierI got moving yesterday in time to join Jason and Rachel for brunch at the Cafe DeWitt, downtown. I'm always impressed how that place manages to pack the house with long waits, an order for seating people that's idiosyncratic at best, uncomfortable seats, passable service, food that's just pretty good (if often inventive), and high prices. My omelet wasn't bad, but I thought the sausage needed more flavor and $9.50 felt high for the omelet with smattering of home fries. If they raised the price of the coffee and stopped giving refills, they'd be on par with the Carriage House! The long wait would have been more bearable if another party of three that arrived after us -- but had a name that caught the hostess's fancy -- hadn't been seated before us.

Most of the rest of the day involved catching up on the contents of my TiVo and doing cooking prep for making chili. I made one big batch of chili base, and two separate sets of stuff to toss in for the second phase: one veggie and one meaty. The house smells good.

Gotta eat some leftovers for lunch (the last of the bangers and mash and vegetables) and get ready for a podcast interview via Skype at 1. MacVoices is interviewing a bunch of TidBITS staff members about the milestone of our 1,000th issue.
