Another yet exciting round of delicious food. My first reaction to a good looking meal is the insatiable smell that strolls into my nostrils, followed by instant mouth water. Slowly unwrapping my delight, side by side, to not disturb the delicately built masterpiece. Before me lays spread open two bagel halves, (throat clear) excuse me, salted bagel halves, honey mustard spread that I swear has a hint of honey, warm & tender black forest ham, lightly melted brie just enough to peak out at you, crispy thinly sliced green apples and a handful of fresh crunchy sprouts. A nice hard dill pickle slice, eases its way next to my filleted beauty to add a zing of tartness to the mix. I slide my hand under the bottom of the one half and disgustingly shoved this 4 inch tall sweet and savory tower into my mouth. As I was sitting up into my chair, leaning forward, that bite, relaxed my posture and I ever so slowly leaned back into my chair, enough for it to make a small creak and I looked up to the ceiling with the feeling of amazement. Yes, this could slightly be erotic food porn. I couldn’t believe what I’m eating. This was breakfast and brunch and desert all in one.
