Opera Style

Sunday afternoon Scott, my parents and I took the boys to see the Pensacola Opera's performance of Pirates of Penzance.  There was some complaining, which we mitigated with M&Ms, and by the intermission Hudson was asking if he could be a pirate this Halloween.  

Before we headed to the show, we went to the Opera Brunch at Jackson's Steakhouse where Kyle Marrero, the Artistic Director, gave a talk about the history of operetta.  The food was delicious, and it was informative and entertaining to hear some of the history behind Gilbert and Sullivan's classic work.  

The warm, sunny weather put me in the mood for spring neutrals.  

Brunch began with bloodies and champagne

A selection of sweet breads

Crepe cup with fresh berries, vanilla yogurt and toasted almonds

Classic Eggs Benedict over beef debris with Jackson's fries and country-style braised greens

Chorizo and Iberico Tortilla (Spanish baked omelet) with leaf lettuce, tomatoes, cucumber and fresh herb vinaigrette
