Anything that calls for dressing up in stain- free clothes and connecting with other adults is so necessary for me these days. Now that I'm a mother of two, I cherish the limited TIME I can steal away from my kiddies. Last Sunday, I escaped the laundry and the never ending, always sucking breast pump to brunch with the LA Mommy Blogger Tribe for a casual healthy meal at BJ's Restaurant and BrewHouse in Burbank.
Constantly battling between wanting to devour everything in sight and making healthy choices that are best for my baby and my waistline, I usually find my self frustrated at restaurants trying to find a dish that is healthy and actually TASTY. However, I was pleasantly surprised to see all of the new dishes BJ's has added. Their new ENLIGHTENED MENU did not disappoint with flavor.
I even got wild and a little crazy by tossing back a beer ...or two.... you know...... to help with my milk supply all in the spirit of Eating, Drinking and Being Merry.
Now if I can just get BJ's to give me their Honey Sriracha Brussel Sprout recipe.
Perhaps the best part of brunch was taking an doggie bag home so these two could eat.
High five!! Right?! Because cooking every day is exhausting at least for me anyway. These two were pleasantly suprised at my lunch offering from BJ's and shocked me with a "Mmmmmm! This is good mommy." My sons idea of dining out is eating yet another slice of mundane pizza but to see him actually enjoy PACIFIC POKE SOBA NOODLES and ENLIGHTENED SEARED AHI SALAD was worth every second I spent away.
