Bellevue Bistro – Can the Food Make Up For Everything Else?

11 Jul

I’m always on the lookout for new breakfast/brunch spots.  I love breakfast and the one thing my husband and I do is always, always take the time to sit down Sunday mornings.  Whether we stay home and cook or go out varies but the one constant is that we always have breakfast before going grocery shopping, running errands, cleaning, etc.

We had gone out Saturday night to my cousin’s graduation party/cookout and then headed to The Stand in Mt. Lookout to relax and enjoy the night.  After getting home and passing out, we were pretty fuzzy on Sunday morning, exacerbated by the fact that I woke up at 9 am and couldn’t get back to sleep.  Which means neither did he (Not that I had anything to do with that, I swear.  Maybe I accidently nudged/shook him and I might have been thinking aloud/insisting we head to breakfast but eh).  I just couldn’t motivate myself to make anything and we played the normal back and forth game of where do you want to go/where do you want to go?

After checking out my favorite site, Urbanspoon, Bellevue Bistro caught my eye.  Check out their website and menu here. Am I the only one who looks at menus for fun?  I think you can tell a lot about a place’s character/vibe by what they’re serving.  BB seemed to be beckoning me with the promise of something delicious and different than the normal eggs and hash browns fare.

Leftover BBQ Breakfast Hash

3 Jul

We woke up Sunday morning and I was starving.  Usually I use the weekends as a chance to clear out my pantry/freezer/fridge and get creative.  Saturday night we had gotten carry-out from Alabama-Q (which is delicious by the way) and had turkey ribs and pork rib tips leftover.  I also didn’t want to do a lot of work (it was Sunday morning and I felt like relaxing), so here’s what I threw together.
