Food…I love it

Jennifer has a business meeting tomorrow, then we are going to Lynchburg to see Daniel accept an award. So instead of having her drive to Winston Salem, then to Fredericksburg, then to Lynchburg, I decided to come with her and then just drive straight to Lynchburg. Anyway…that is just the side story…

We’re in NC and I asked the receptionist at the hotel, “Where can we find authentic NC BBQ?” Wala…Little Richards. Holy crap! Tons of food, and it was only $12. And it was REAL BBQ! You know…the kind with the slaw on top. And hushpuppies…hushpuppies that tasted like manna. Well, I think this is what manna tasted like. They were like popping candy. And the best…they have Cheerwine. The only time I think I’ve passed up sweet tea. But hey, its Cheerwine! Oh…you don’t know what that is? So sad for you.

You have those who eat to live and those who live to eat…..we are definetly the latter. I’m diving into some books tomorrow. I’ll keep you posted.

Golden Corral

Someone once told me that a lot of my posts have to deal with food.  Oh well…here’s another one.

My wife hates buffets.  Despises them.  She has a term for them….vomitous.  Now my spell checker wants me to fix that word…but thats the way its spelled.

So Jennifer had her glucose test yesterday.  Let me break this down for you.  Pregnant lady is told to starve herself before coming to the doctors.  Pregnant lady is not fun when she is starved.  Bad things happen.  Then hungry pregnant lady must find a parking spot at a hospital with not enough parking spots.  Hungry pregnant lady…with husband in tow…signs in at a doctors office with TOOOO many people in the waiting room.  Now we have a hungry, pregnant, and claustrophobic lady.  Great.  Then they have hungry pregnant claustrophobic lady drink pure sugar.  Now she is hungry pregnant claustrophobic trying not to vomit lady.  But it actually wasn’t that bad.  Jennifer did very well despite the starving.  Which brings me to my last point.

I somehow got her into Golden Corral!  All you can eat breakfast.  I’m talking eggs, sausage, sausage links, gravy, cheesy hash browns, cinnamon rolls, fruit, blueberry pancakes, strawberries, whipped cream.  Yum.  Why is this a big deal?  We have been married for 4 years and have never went to an all you can eat buffet.  It was heaven.

Good Food-Good Friends

Dsc00045Dsc00050_2Dsc00041Dsc00044This past Monday, Jennifer and I, David & Chris, and Paul & Judy went to the Melting Pot for our birthdays (Judy, Dave, Me).  Very cool place.  Food was great.  Sadly for me, Jennifer doesn’t like seafood and I had to eat all the lobster.  Darn.  We annihilated the food….I mean tore it up. Cheese…gone…meat…gone….chocolate…inhaled.  Our reservation was at 8:30, which means I laid down around 11:30…feeling completely miserable. 
Then I woke up…and still felt the same.  Ate way too much.

Late Night Sonic Run

Nav_sonicsignlogotopJennifer and I just got back from our first birthing class (more on that tomorrow), and we felt we needed a treat.  Not really sure if a Banana Pudding Milkshake and Extra Long Coney Dog with chili and cheese is a good thing at 10:00 at night.  At the moment I am feeling it was bad decision….but gooood going down!

Yummm!

El Pollo Rico – You have to try this place if you are anywhere near the Pentagon.  Yesterday I met my sound tech for lunch and we ended up at this place.  As soon as I stepped out of the car I could smell deliciousness.  And when I saw the line out the door I knew I was in for a treat!  You walk in, and there are 4 of these ovens roasting whole chickens over wood.  The food is Puerto Rican and the seasoning is amazing!  They only take cash, so come prepared.  My wife is sick of hearing me talk about this place!Dsc00253
