For Sunday Brunch At the Award Winning Chart Room Restaurant,Located at The Grand Aleutian Hotel In Dutch Harbor Alaska?

Lots of Wonderful salads and savories today to start out the meal.....

But , like always I head right to the French Toast (Today With Blueberries!)........
But the Chicken Puttanesca is just AWESOME today.
And of course Ham and Roast beef for those more traditional minded among you.
Although I chronicle our Sunday Brunch every week I really do not have anything to do with it besides making sure the rooms are clean and the Linen is done.
So Today I would like to say a Sunday Brunch Thanks to all those who make our weekly gatherings possible:
First off to Executive Chef Rich who does not just a great job with brunch, but every day running two restaurants, Functions, Scheduling being a mentor to Junior,and ORDERING (Which, with our delivery times makes ordering anything a nightmare!) It is rather Ironic that although he takes amazing photos he is a bit camera shy himself, so I will alow one of his creations to stand in for him. Great Smoothies today!! and the Deserts look cool today too, though I miss the little Granola cups from the other week. And anytime you want to make those Polenta Pancakes again is fine with me!!!
Eddie, who makes my French Toast or Pancakes every morning for me but today! He is personally responsible for my current addiction to breakfast.
We all know Janice's Willie who is Richard's Second in Command (And who makes Sushi to die for!)
Paul and Jack (Just back from vacation and flashing me the "Devil Sign") Round out the kitchen with their awesome creations from salads to crepes.
Junior has off today, but it would not be Sunday Brunch without him so here he is from Dani's Birthday Brunch!
Trudy, Darlene.........
And Geshaw are our servers today and every Sunday so remember to tip them well!!
And Finally Glenn, who brings all the alcohol to all of the outlets and has the most important job on the Island; He is Personally responsible for ensuring the Mountain Dew supply at the Hotel and the Restaurant. I pray for his safety and health every day.
NOW, Lets get on to the "Dirt"..........
I caught Cookie Dough at "The store that shall not be named" stocking up on supplies for a "Boys Night" at her home. (Of course she caught me at the same store reacting to "The Real Unalaska" blog post in the next photo) Check out her blog for all her adventures (And plenty of shots for you Juniorholics) at http://unalaskamom.blogspot.com/

Darn you Alena!! After reading your blog the other day I may never again be able to make my favorite quick supper by chopping up a bunch of fresh mushrooms on top of this Pizza. Go see what all the Fuss is about at:
http://therealunalaska.blogspot.com/
Dan's Office door is closed, probably for the first time since I got here. But you, like I, can even follow him to the Swedish Arctic Circle with satellite tracking at his blog:

And FINALLY Katherine's neice gave birth to a wonderful baby boy. Go see the pictures at:
http://capesarichefsalon.blogspot.com/ . (Also compare this picture to the one she posted on there to see why I told her she needs like a week of sleep!)
On to Deadliest Catch News:
EVERONE is still out fishing, though the season is winding down for all but the Cornelia Marie which got a late start. The Northwestern boys are probably doing alot of this though since last I heard they are stuck in St Paul with the Ice.....

See everyone, I do get over to the Unalaska side of the islands sometimes.......


And Finally, would it really be too much of a bother to ask for just ONE more really good snowstorm/blizzard? The snow from the last one did not stick around long at all and I really would like one more good shot before spring arrives. Heck, today I am walking around outside in a polo shirt and not even feeling chilly. (Although I must say it is quiet today, almost too quiet. Maybe Mother Nature is going to give us a kick in the pants here soon!)

Hope everyone has a Great Sunday!!

CB-Thanks so much for the wonderful brunch! The french toast is my favorite. The pictures are beautiful. I was wondering, do you see the northern lights where you are?

Have a great week!

Janice said...

Willie, Willie, Willie- if you only knew... and you make kick ass sushi! Hmmm- I am picturing a lovely black cocktail dress and some interesting food and drink. I'm making bologna & cheese sandwiches and Hawaiin punch and Vodka- Hula Coolers as we used to call them and you are wearing---no wait- What I am really thinking can't be published. Wink ;)Thanks for being such a good sport. Okay- I'll wear the dress and you can cook.

Carlisleboy said...

Leigh said...

I have read in a few places the Time Bandit is finished for the season already & the guys are home with their families.

Love the pics CB.

Mystic said...

Uber awesome brunch today. I must admit the French toast is my weakness...sigh.

So many blogs to try to check on. This week will be rather hecktic for me, but I'll try to stop by and check on all the goings on in Dutch.

Hey...with Katherine returning soon, you will be able to resume your all natural highlights!
Hugs to you...Welcome to the world Hayden ,and ya'll pray I survive the upcoming week from Hell!!!!!!!

Hugs!

MaryC said...

Leigh the TB is home. I was on a chat with John last night. He's looking forward to taking it easy.....ha ha 8-)

Carlisleboy said...

Oh, Shoot, Sorry Guys. I was suposed to Hold out on the TB being done but since the Buys have spilled it already, Yep, they are done. (No lying if you are observant you will notice I did not post the TB picture when I said everyone was out fishing.) The NW is as of NOW (3:41pm AST) free from the ice since this morning and is back on her final run. (Maybe Dutch This week)
Sorry TB folks, the TB had no quota down here to deliver.

Yup, prepare yourselves for lots and lots of Wicked references for the next couple of days or until I get those songs out of me head.

Elizabeth Douglas said...
