Brunch: Samantha's Southern Cuisine

Monday, September 13, 2010

yum. Yum. YUM. So, so good.

This past weekend, after the Brooklyn Book Festival (check out Daniela's recap here), my other LitSnit cohort, Erin K, and I were starving and decided to check out Samantha's Southern Cuisine in Brooklyn, off the Clinton-Washington C-train stop.

All I can say is OMG. SO GOOD. SO CHEAP.

More often than not, I'm afraid to go into places claiming to serve 'authentic southern cuisine' because that usually means 'authentic salty, greasy cuisine'. I find that a lot of establisments assume that all food from the south is just an excuse to drench a bunch of food in butter.


Anyways, Samantha's hit the nail on the head. After we sat for several minutes just staring at the menu (there were so many good options) Erin chose the Eggs Bennetsville--scrambled eggs with cheddar cheese, peppers& onions, laid upon a slice of brioche toast

And I had the Chicken Fried Steak...

Both were delicious….perfectly seasoned and very filling. Even while full we still managed to each squeeze in a serving of homemade, twice-baked Mac & cheese:

The best part?
Two brunch entrees + two sides of macaroni & cheese + coffee + Grandma's Punch = $32

Not bad at all! We left full & happy. Perfect weather for a chilly/rainy day! (My only gripe was that they didn't have sweet potato pie. I clearly didn't need it but I just felt like that would have been the icing on the cake!)

Award for worst blogger ever goes to...


Hands down, me.

I don't know how people post so often...I get caught up in work...LIFE, and I just forget. It's not just my blog, either. I haven't logged into Twitter forever. Thank God we have a schedule for LitSnit, otherwise I would have been bounced by now. I'm trying to be better but we'll see...

So, to update you on the weight loss challenge...I'm at Day 41 and I've only lost 4 pounds.


I'm not even gonna lie...I have completely fallen off the wagon. Between all of my friends' birthdays in August-September, boys and stress at work, I've been eating like I'm about to hibernate for the winter. To make matters worse, I've had no time for the gym (or at least very little time) so I haven't even burned off what I've been eating.


I think I'm going to join Weight Watchers. I think the idea of actually weighing myself in front of actual people will hold me accountable, because right now I'm not doing so well. With that being said, I'm not beating myself up about it. I'm going to get back on track and get focused. Plain and simple.

I have learned that I'm an emotional eater. I eat when I'm sad, depressed, stressed. Food makes it better. I need to figure out a way around that...

Either way...I'm back!
