The Past Two Weeks in Food
Michael and I celebrated our 17th wedding anniversary on September 30th. We decided to enjoy two lunches together instead of one dinner. Bonus! We got to spend more alone time together AND we had two spectacular meals.
Thus begins this food essay….
This was my plate from Atlanta Hwy Seafood Market. I had the shrimp and crab-cake plate. Michael had the grilled Mahi-Mahi and shrimp plate. This food was just as good, if not better, than some of the down-home seafood we’ve had in New Orleans. For real, child!
I had a bowl of Gumbo, and Michael ordered a bowl of Red Beans and Rice. When we were half way through our bowl, we switched.
On Sunday, we went to our local sushi joint. This was the aptly named Lover’s Roll.
Later on I presented Michael with this dessert. A banana split made with love (and a lot of nuts!)
The next day I made some stuffed bell peppers. All of the ingredients were bought at Aldi. Which? God, I wish they would open an Aldi in our town.
I’m sure, by now, you know that I am a Moe’s Ambassador. This is one of my favorite ambassadorships. Not only do I love the food and stand behind their freshness, I love our local Moe’s for the people that are they employ. Great food, great atmosphere and kids eat free on Wednesday. SCORE!
This week I finally made Banana Bread. I adapted a from a recipe I found on Brown Eyed Baker (whom, coincidentally, is one of my favorite baking recipe sites.)
This past week Olivia, Davey, and I went to lunch with my friend Maria and her daughter. Livey didn’t like her Hot & Sour soup. Guess who loves Hot & Sour soup, though. Me!!!
My mom sent us a care package with three jars of Ajvar (hot pepper spread) and one jar is almost gone already. It’s a little spicy and goes super well with toast and feta cheese.
After almost 2 weeks of Michael being gone for work he took us all out for dinner, to Cheddar’s Casual Cafe, and I was able to cure my big, bad, burger craving with the Hickory Smokes BBQ Burger.
Yesterday, I drove through Billy’s Country Kitchen – Home of the Heavenly Biscuit for the first time ever. I don’t know why I’ve never been here, in our over five years of living here, but I will definitely go back. Not only for the biscuits, but the wonderful man that owns the place. Our experience, at the drive through, was nothing short of blessed and favored. The best thing about it is that we paired these Heavenly Biscuits with preserves that Michael brought back to us from Nashville’s Loveless Cafe. The Peach Preserves are to. die. for.
Thank God for my gym membership! For real.
