Lazy Sunday...hazy heat....zzzzzz! Oh yeah, wake up, it's blog time! What's with this heat anyway? Ok, yes I may be orig from Miami, but that does NOT make me immune to this sleepy heat-- where I come from, air conditioning follows you around like a personal-sized bubble-- a/c house (24 hours a day, always central), a/c car, a/c office, a/c stores & restaurants, none of this walking in the heat for miles to do anything with your day, no sir.

So this lazy Sunday we wandered to Two Boots on 2nd street. They obviously have pizza chains around Manhattan, and the once or twice I tried the pizza I wasn't in love, I admit. Something about the extra "cajun" spices in the sauce, wasn't for me.

But this location in Brooklyn is a full restaurant with many enticing-sounding cajun foods, plus the pizza selection. We've walked by when it's packed to the seams sometimes, and seems to be popular with the kids-- with alligators painted on the walls and a ride-the-alligator rocking-horse style attraction outside, you can see why. Very mardi-gras decor inside, we preferred the cute outside courtyard. It was slow this hot sunday afternoon.

We drank the "arnold palmer" iced-tea/lemonade combo which was sweet and refreshing. I had 2 eggs scrambled, which were average, though tasty with the hot sauce on the table, served with grits and homemade biscuits. The biscuits in particular were de-lish. Hubby had the Bananas Foster French Toast (ok so I also voted for him to get that one!), which was decadent and tasted like dessert! I do make a mean french-toast-with-bananas myself (if I do say so myself!), but this was heaven- the bananas are sauteed in Cointreau, orange juice, butter & brown sugar--yum! We are excited to come back and try the cobb salad, sandwiches, and dinner treats like jumbalaya. They also have happy hour 4-6 weekdays.
Stay cool!
