weekend brunch

...To inspire you for the weekend. If you're in LA, you should most definitely consider Gjelina for brunch this weekend. We were there last Sunday and it was so delicious I could barely breathe. I know I've posted on their foods before, but nobody ever tires of delicious food shots, do they?



Lemon ricotta pancakes with chestnut flour. OMG.



Beet salad with avo and orange. I don't know what they do to their beets, but they are amazing.



Poached eggs with polenta and tuscan kale.



And a mostly devoured okra masterpiece that I'm planning to recreate this weekend if all goes well.



Oh, and then there's the cutest baby in the whole world. He was there too.

Hope your weekend includes a delicious meal. I'll be back next week with an update on our project.

My boyfriend and I went to Gjelina recently for the first time and it was absolutely amazing. These photos really make me want to go back! If only traffic weren't so bad to get down there I'd be back in a heartbeat.

also, just noticed your profile, you can remove the 'to-be' after 'mom'. you are def a mama now. ;)
