thursday things – an anniversary, a road trip, and other stuff

eggI have this issue lately where whenever I try to crack an egg on the counter, instead of cracking it just explodes out of it its shell. I mean, I know I’ve been working out a lot lately but I’m pretty sure I’m not the Hulk so… it’s super confusing. 

Mr. Eats and I just celebrated our anniversary last week and celebrated with an amazing dinner at BLT Steak. If you have one in your town, you definitely have to check it out. The popovers are to DIE for, the caesar salad is amazing, and the peanut butter mousse dessert, served with banana ice cream and chocoalte ganache is out of this world.

In other news we also took a road trip a couple weeks ago to Mesa Verde National Park in Cortez, Colorado. Mesa Verde was occupied for more than 700 years, from 550 A.D. to 1300 A.D. and is home to some of the most fantastic cliff dwellings you will ever see. We spent all day exploring the park and its various cliff dwellings and still didn’t see even half of what they have to offer.

It wasn’t all hiking and hard work, though. Their restaurant “The Metate Room” is pretty solid, too.

BACK TO FOOD-RELATED THINGS

I ate a whole bag of this trail mix in one sitting, which is weird because the back claims that it has “6 servings” but my bag clearly only had one. I think I should probably write them a letter to let them know that my bag was under-filled.

Starbucks has released a new toasted graham latte that I need to get my hands on ASAP.

Lays has released Canada’s #1 potato chip in the US – the flavor is called “All Dressed” and will only be available until December so hurry up and grab your bags now.

Kenji is singing the praises of this $65 knife, which is still in Kickstarter form, so you definitely need to back it. Because, Kenji.

Bon Appetit posted this intriguing article about what goes into the food we eat.

And last but not least, this guy.

  1. happy (incredibly belated) anniversary) although not belated b/c IRL i was on time. :) I love that you actually really celebrated it versus doing what i do and halfway-forgetting it (it’s terrible and is no indication of how much i love mr. table, at all). :)

    did i tell you (gasp: i didn’t tell you!) i had a toasted graham latte yesterday? i DID! let’s discuss. have you had one yet?

    also, that dog video makes me SO nervous: like i want to know if he likes that or if it’s insane torture for him b/c i feel like it’s 50/50. i don’t know whether to laugh or arrest that dog owner. i overthought that, i know.
