Presentation is Gorgeous! - BRC

And the taste buds say....

Not too shabby.  Nothing great, but worth eating!  Honestly, it's been several months since I've eaten this brownie, and I didn't take notes, so don't take this one too seriously (because I know you take the other ones oh so seriously.... :) ).  But the fact that it has been several months and I don't remember it, also says a lot compared to the other ones, where I can still taste them and love them!  This is what I DO remember.  I remember I ate it for an appetizer because I wanted to have room for it.  I remember eating it all... so it was good.  I remember that the ice cream was really really good.  I remember thinking, yeah, this is really a happy hour place and I"m sure they are not known for their brownie a la mode.  I also remember how great our server was... really nice guy.  I also remember that it ate some of Justin's as well... so yeah, it was good... just not great.  The atmosphere was really cool though!  Fun place!

The story behind the Brownie - a - la - mode...

Houston does a really cool thing in August called Houston Restaurant Weeks.  For the month of August certain restaurants around town develop a set menu and if you order off that menu a certain amount of your meal goes to the Houston Food Bank.  My friend Justin and I went to a movie one afternoon and we decided to go eat at one of these restaurants and the way we decided on BRC is because they had this brownie a la mode on their menu.  So off we went.  This is the time that Justin is learning lots of weird things I do... like 1. have a blog on brownie a la modes.  2. order my dessert before my meal  and eat it as an appetizer 3. because of #2, I get to also enjoy some of his dessert at the end of meal... 

It was the beginning of a lovely friendship!

  1. I love your updates. 3 of them at once! I knew you were eating brownies and not reporting. ;)

    I stopped blogging myself last spring, and haven't been reading anyone's updates, so I only caught yours because I've been spending my day on Shutterfly making LAST year's photobook for my kiddos. I had to go out to my blog to see what the heck we had been doing, and immediately I noticed your updates! Keep up the good work, Kati. Love you tons!
