I’ve had pretty good luck with delicious food lately, food that spans a pretty broad spectrum. For fun, today I thought I’d share some of these dishes–let me know which one you want to eat the most right now!
Our journey begins with boozy slushies from Narwhal. I’ve gone the entire summer without a Slurpee (thanks, healthy diet), so these were a real treat. I love the sampler, as you get to try 3 different flavors for $11. Because the drinks are constantly mixed in separate machines, it takes less than a minute after your order to get the drinks. Megan and I tried 6 of them, and we need to go back to try the others. Have you tried boozy slushies?
My company’s Italian partners were in St. Louis recently, so we treated them to a classic American dinner at an east coast themed restaurant called Peacemaker. Peacemaker is known for their lobster rolls. They’re pricey, but they’re so good. Also, I don’t usually get excited about restaurant chips, but these are amazing. We all ended up ordering the exact same thing. What’s your favorite restaurant chip?
I’m comfortable in the kitchen, but I have a few friends who are truly talented cooks. One of them invited us over for paella recently, and he made it using a cast-iron pan on a charcoal grill. The smokey flavor infused through the entire dish, and I loved the crunchy rice that stuck to the bottom of the pan. Have you ever cooked a dish like this on a grill?
Okay, this one really surprised me. I ate a lot of carrots as a kid, but I never thought I’d actually order them at a restaurant. But after trying Yellowbelly’s cooked carrots last month, I knew I had to get them again. They’re sprinkled with eel sauce, peanuts, and chimichuri. I highly recommend them if you like carrots. Also, their biscuits are amazing.
Last, and perhaps most unexpected, I have to give a nod to these chocolate peanut butter pie Oreos. While they’re not nearly as good as actual chocolate peanut butter pie, they’re pretty darn addictive. What’s your favorite Oreo flavor?
I hope you’ve had some interesting and delicious culinary delights in your life recently!
