It has kind of become a tradition - a holiday GTG with Palma and Brad. Two years ago we had brunch at Le Vallauris in Palm Springs - last year it was dinner at Mario's Place in Riverside and a tour of the Mission Inn to see the holiday lights.
This year we decided to have brunch at Spencer's in Palm Springs, and it was a good choice. Spencer's is located at the Tennis Club on Baristo Road right at the base of the mountainside. It brought back old memories of when I lived in Palm Springs and played tennis there. I even won a tournament trophy back in the 70's.
Anyway, we sat outdoors on the festively decorated patio. It was cool in the shade, but the outdoor heaters kept us warm.
Bill started with an appetizer, Crispy Fried Oysters, one of the chef's specialties.
Bill then surprised me by ordering Liver and Onions (I am usually the one to choose that).
The rest of us chose Eggs Benedict - Palma's was with lobster, Brad's was with smoked salmon, and mine was with crabcakes.
I shared my dessert with the others, but it was really too pretty to eat - Key Lime Tart.
And, speaking of pretty, look at these cookies that Palma brought us.
As usual, we had a wonderful time with Palma and Brad. Check out her blog photos.
