Brunch at Tuscany

Mastermind Weekend 1/16

Hey there!

I'm Tina

Mal and I ended our Mohegan getaway with a relaxing brunch at Todd English’s Tuscany. I’m so glad that we enjoyed a leisurely meal instead of grabbing food on the road. I wanted our vacation to last as long as possible!

Right away, I ordered a cup of coffee with cream. However, I wish my request hadn’t been so impulsive because I wasn’t really in the mood for coffee and barely drank any of it.

Maybe I needed some coffee! I look half asleep in this pic. (I’m also not wearing any make-up.) 😕

Mal gets cranky when he is hungry. His “evil” face cracked me up!

The brunch menu at Tuscany was impressive with its unique-sounding dishes and interesting flavor combinations. I had a difficult time making a decision!

I finally chose “The Perfect Cure” breakfast flatbread with prosciutto, asparagus, egg, and the most amazing fontina cheese. I’m not sure I’ve ever tasted Fontina, but now I am a huge fan!

The breakfast flatbread totally hit the spot, but I was little disappointment by the quality and quantity of the asparagus, which was overcooked and sparse. 😐

I ate half of the portion served to me and took the rest home for a late lunch.

So, this concludes my Mohegan weekend! I hope you enjoyed reading about it!

For a full recap, check out my previous posts:



  1. looks good! But I always wondered why american portions are so huge!…Whenever I travel over the boarder I swear the portion sizes go up at least by half lol…(I guess the flatbread could be shared) but even other stuff! 🙂

  2. You look beautiful with or without make up! Way to rock the au naturale look 🙂 I get cranky when I’m hungry too! I understand the face!!

  3. You look gorgeous without makeup!
    But that food looks disgusting….like skin stretched across bread…oh wait, it is. grossssssssssssssss
