Brunch at Pinewood Social Nashville

breakfast-1BLOGO I've been super busy over the last week, but don't worry I was still eating! One of my favorite cities to visit and dine is Nashville, TN. I'm pretty confident I could gain twenty pounds in one weekend. Nashville is overflowing with amazing restaurants, its a must stop for any foodie!

Brunch on Sunday with friends is something to never miss. Especially when you are going to Pinewood Social. Coffee to cocktails, delicious meals, bowling and a trendy atmosphere...HELLO..what is there not to love:)

Mocha Lattes are completely irresistible, so I never turn them down. Paired with a salmon toast, including goat cheese and tomatoes, brunch is served. I waited all morning on an empty stomach, just so I had room for everything. Seriously, you must plan these things!

Ok, so I may have shared a bite or two of toast with my boyfriend. Mostly because then I could try his Reuben Benedict..score! Corned beef, hollandaise, and a poached egg with potato wedges. He is such a sucker for Benedict and potatoes.

The problem with all this delicious food is that I want everything on the menu. So, next visit it will be chicken & biscuits with gravy and a little bowling:)

Chocolate Chip Banana Pancakes

Pancakes-5BLOGO Today I woke up feeling adventurous! No boring cereal or toast for this girl:)

It's a banana and chocolate chip pancake kinda day. I justify my decision based on eating lots of vegetables for dinner last night. Plus making your meal from scratch is always rewarding.
