What Did I Eat?Posted: November 2, 2012
I’ve been eating a lot of delicious food lately. Seriously.
I would call it major (over) indulgence on my part…but then I would feel guilty…
Anyway, I’ve been holding out on you… The hubby and I have done some cooking. Like this delicious macaroni and cheese, complete with jalapenos and caramelized onions.
While I was in DC, I ate some seriously good food. Like the Pesto Burger from Silver Diner.
Silver Diner is a 50’s style diner, jukeboxes on every table and really great staff. Seriously, I don’t think I have ever been into one and had an unhappy server. One thing that I love is that in the last few years they have gone local. They also try to do organic/minimally processed foods, making everything super delicious.
My first night in DC, I knew we had to go. So we went. And I ordered this burger. Pesto. Goat Cheese. Roasted Red Peppers. Grass-fed beef. I couldn’t resist.
I also had to have lunch at Potbelly… we don’t have any in Plattsburgh, so I HAD to go…and eat a lot of processed meat. Yum! If you’ve never been to one, please go. Now.
There were a couple of other places that I revisited/had delicious meals at …but I didn’t get photos.
That’s one thing I really miss about living in DC, so many wonderful places to eat for whatever your mood.
But then I remember that I am married to a chef, who makes me things like Birthday Paella (complete with chicken, shrimp and cod) in a flash…
And takes me out for an apple cider margarita at one of our favorite restaurants (and they use our favorite local cider)….
And allows himself to be dragged apple picking on the last day of apple picking season…and then goes a little apple crazy, resulting in this….
But it’s fine because I know we’ll use them…
And lastly, he makes homemade ravioli. With local flour, squash, butter, cider, shallots…you get the picture.
I guess I don’t need to live in a big city to eat well. I just need to run…everywhere… and then run some more.
So yeah, that’s what’s been happening on the road/in the kitchen. Any recipe requests?
What’s going on in your kitchen? Or at your favorite restaurant?
