Can I really use that title in a week without a single grilled cheese or lobster roll? I did have some exceptionally above-bar poultry-based sandwiches.
The winning ‘wiches…
Milk Bar‘s Thanksgiving croissant is the best sandwich of all time. Adam and I waited for it with baited breath this year.
The seasoned croissant is stuffed with turkey, cranberry sauce, and stuffing!
Flip Bird at the Ashland does a damn fine chicken sandwich – pulled chicken, harissa honey, pickled coleslaw, sambal mayo, and crispy skin.
And my homemade toasted sandwich dinner was nothing to sneeze at.
Sourdough / Applegate Farm smoked sliced turkey / 4 year aged cheddar / smoked maple mayo (olive oil based mayo, maple, liquid smoke, smoked paprika).
With roasted zucchini on the side.
Other fun stuff…
Vegan eggnogs in my coffee. Adam really enjoyed the TJ’s almond milk version but I remain loyal to Silk.
Here’s my current holiday stash, so exciting!
Amazin’ Raisin sent me some samples to review. The fruit-flavored raisins contain three ingredients – California raisins, citric acid, and natural fruit flavors – and are packed with flavor but no artificial sugar or sulfur dioxide. Adam and I have both been really enjoying them. So far his favorite flavor is pineapple and mine is watermelon.
Some key work eats included raisins and a Larabar.
And blackberry Siggi with holiday grapes and a maple maca bar.
Really, the best dinner of the week was movie theater pretzel bites with fake cheese. We went to see Thor: Ragnarok and split our sides laughing. Our AMC has extra-wide seats that fully recline so the whole experience was really nice.
We also went gaga for these scallion pancakes from Trader Joe’s.
They were crazy flavorful and satisfying. I topped mine with mayo and Sriracha.
With baby carrots and potato snacks for an appetizer for crunch.
A girlfriend and I met for a mid-week dinner at Bricolage and were both big fans. Sriracha butter wings to start.
And we both had pink drinks! She had the pink soda salted lemonade and I picked an option with a cute name that I can’t remember where you pick a spirit and let the bartender go crazy. I said “vodka, no ginger” and ended up with something delicious with raspberry and lime.
My caramelized shrimp claypot was 10/10. Georgia white shrimp, vidalia onions, cherry tomatoes, and chili paste with rice to soak up the sauce.
Enjoy your weekends!
