Time Flies

It has been a crazy ten days since I last posted.  Last week, I traveled to Atlanta for work and work I did!  The team that I was a part of worked until 9.30ish each night.  Having said that, you can imagine that I didn't get to enjoy much of the Atlanta restaurant scene.  However!  Sunday, Jenn and I drove down early to have brunch at Holeman and Finch Public House.  Only one word comes to mind - YUM.  Our waiter's first words were "Are you here to enjoy the hamburger?"  And we replied, "Why, yes we are!"  This hamburger has been voted one of the top ten sandwiches in the U.S.  And I have to agree - it was delicious!!!  Holeman and Finch makes their own bread n butter pickles, ketchup, mustard and lemonade.....As I was eating my burger, I momentarily forgot my table manners and started to lick my fingers clean of the wonderful hamburger juices.  I caught myself just in the nick of time!   Jenn stills knows me as a civilized southern girl...LOL.  But seriously, it was fab.u.lous.  Everyone should visit this place and grab a burger.  But be forewarned - the burgers are only served either at Sunday brunch or during the weekdays at 10pm (there is a lottery for the 24 burgers they make each night).  They are that good - they would over shadow all other menu items if they were offered up at any time.  I will be posting pictures of the burger and how I felt after I ate the burger (with onion rings that had a nice finishing salt on top).

As I mentioned earlier, we worked crazy hours so the rest of the week wasn't so outrageous.  Monday night, I ate at BLT Steak which is attached to the funky hotel I spoted all week.  I had a great medium rare skirt steak with chimichurri (yes, again) sauce.  This was unlike any other chimichurri sauce I've had.  It was very vinegary and had finely diced shallots running thru it.  It was very very tasty and I'm going to have to try to copy it at home.  I'll let you know when I do.  I ate dinner alone as it was late and I sat at a bar table and enjoyed the library book I was reading.  Tuesday night, we ate Mexican at Agave.  Nice salsa & chips and freshly made guacamole but the actual meal was not memorable.  This was upsetting to Jenn and I as Agave came highly recommended.  Oh well!  Wednesday night was...drumroll please.....Taco Bell!!!!  Mexi-melt and burrito supreme - yummy trash food.  Thursday night, Jenn and I went to a local Mexican joint for really good carne asada tacos.  It was cheap but good Mexican food - I don't even remember the name of the place.  However, I will when the AmEx bill shows up!  I know, I know - Mexican 3 days in a row!  But I love it and Jenn is preggy and she was craving it.

So glad to be home on Friday night after a crazy week of work.  Michael and I went to the local theme park on Sunday for the roller coasters.  I felt sick after riding 2 coasters that had loops and constantly caused me to bang my head against the bars.  Can you believe, Michael had the gall to suggest that the reason I felt bad and couldn't handle the rides is because I'm getting older!?!?!  Doesn't he know that (a) he's never supposed to say something like that to his wife (b) a southern lady NEVER discusses her age in that manner and (c) I am only 25!  So after giving him the evil eye, I dragged my dizzy and queasy butt back to the car and let him take me to Sonic for a hot dog - that cures all evils.

Hopefully, I will be cooking some this week - so more to come!
