You saw most of this week’s eats yesterday, so this post is just to fill in the gaps. What you’re not seeing – the coffee. I was terrible about bedtime this week and the result was constant coffee consumption. This work week ended up being particularly busy, so it was serendipitous that I was extra-caffeinated.
Numi Cardamom Pu-erh Tea with skim milk.
Valentine’s style Junior Mints.
Junior Mints are my favorite chocolate candy, second only to York and Pep bars, and these were shaped like freaking hearts! Too exciting.
Popcorn with caramel and turkey bacon.
Does that goodness need more explanation?
stuff I didn’t cook
Brunch at Biscuits and BBQ.
Adam went super Southern with chicken and waffles,
while I got the bbq chicken sandwich.
It was good, but I was expecting the meat to be pulled and smothered and I probably would have ordered differently if I’d known it wasn’t. At least the serving was giant; Adam ate my 2nd half for lunch the next day.
We were mostly there for dessert anyway. I read a review in the Times that said Biscuits and BBQ had some of the best key lime pie the reviewer had ever tasted.
Yep. Key lime pie is my favorite dessert and this was definitely one of the best slices I’ve had. The only way it could have been better is if the traditional crust was a graham cracker crust – the way my mom makes it – because I like my extra-sweet with a side of extra-sweet!
Sushi take-out from Kisso.
I went with two boring, cooked rolls (both with tempura!) but Adam said his chirashi was the best he’s ever had.
leftovers for lunch
Since I made a different recipe each night for my book review, I ended up with lots of leftovers for lunches. Eating tapenade and tofu egg salad on my lunch break felt fancy!
A packaged lunch.
And some Bumblebee Spicy Thai Chili Tuna with crackers.
I loooove that tuna, it is so flavorful.
An eggless lunch.
Leftover lentil tapenade with celery and baby carrots.
The night I was left to my own devices in the kitchen I made mac and cheese and trees for dinner.
Just a box of this adorable winter shapes mac and cheese with 0% Greek yogurt, smoked paprika, a tin of Bella cayenne pepper smoked sardines, and broccoli roasted with truffle salt.
Gussied up box macaroni is the best easy dinner.
What’s your go-to order when you’re channeling the deep South? Adam does chicken and waffles while I like pulled chicken and fried okra.
