Brunching in the New Year

Since when did this blog become … mostly … about food?  Well, really the number one thing to do in Houston, we’ve found, is go out to eat.  So why not?  
On New Years day we headed out to have brunch at Backstreet Cafe.   This is a must try in Houston! Our friends made reservations in advance so we were able to score a table on the most deserving day of a fabulous brunch: New Years Day.   
I ordered the Backstreet Benedict.  Poached eggs over cheddar chive biscuits and Virginia ham. Need I say more?   
The cafe was serving black eyed peas with your meal, on the house, to celebrate the day.  I was pretty excited about this because I was never able to find a grocery store that wasn’t sold out of them.  Got my luck in for 2014 and that is all that matters.
