Too bad I didn’t serve this on a different colored plate! The picture would have been perfect. Next time!

This is a picture of filet with blue cheese crumbles and homemade croutons with a side of Spanish rice.  I was looking for a recipe with blue cheese since my husband likes it so much, but like I have mentioned before, I’m not really a fan. I found this recipe on allrecipes.com and decided to try to make it because it seemed simple enough!

The filet was amazing- the cut was great and the meat itself was incredible. Honestly this was not hard to make and it was actually kind of fun trying to make the croutons. That is something I had never done before and it was so easy! We added much more parmesan cheese to the croutons than called for, but what can we say? We love cheese 🙂

Anyway, the most surprising part of this whole experience was that I really enjoyed the entire meal! Including the blue cheese which is something I tend to stay away from. Definitely will be making this again!

I think I do like blue cheese afterall

I think by now all of you know I have a soft spot for Biggies. It’s funny because Danny and I lived about 10 minutes away for a year and only discovered it our last two months there. Now we live about 45 minutes away and find ourselves there at least once a month.

Their beer selection is incredible, personally I love Magic Hat #9 and it’s one of the only bars that I know I can always order one.

Enough about drinks, this is a food blog afterall and I’m here to tell you about the Ahi Tuna Tacos:)

It is offered on the appetizer section of the menu but it is the perfect size for an entree for one, ME! It’s a simple, light meal and I have found myself ordering it time and time again. It’s basically two grilled tortillas with fresh ahi tuna, lettuce, tomatoes and a delish wasabi mayonnaise.

Just talking about it makes me want more and I just had it last night:)

Bringin it back to biggies

Part of the reason I started this blog was because I really do think I have an abnormal diet and I am okay with telling you that I really did have three hotdogs from three different places in 24 hours. That is pretty gross. I really don’t eat like that often, but I watch my diet the rest of the time and try to stick to my workout routine so I CAN do weird things like this unintentional mini hotdog marathon that occurred a couple of weeks ago.

So the morning after Ben’s Chili Bowl  , Danny and I packed our things, said good bye to Tom and Amy, and headed back into DC to do some touristy things. We had been warned that there were not too many restaurants near the Washington Monument, MLK Memorial or the Smithsonian Museums, but that’s what we had on our schedule for the day and figured we would be able to find something to eat since we are not picky eaters. (Big surprise, I know!)

After walking around for a while, we did start to get hungry and of course could not even find a little hole in the wall to slip into for a bite. We did want to try something cool and unique to DC, but given our location and quickly increasing appetite, we ended up just getting a plain hotdog from a stand. Was it good? Sure. Was it satisfying? Eh.

We continued on to the National Musesum of Natural History. Our last stop for the day was the Air and Space museum so we were pretty much staying in the same area for a while. A couple of hours later, we realized that the skimpy hotdog from earlier was not going to hold us over. Once we found the nice little “Atrium Cafe” at the museum, we felt a little relieved because there were so many options for lunch! It was a cafeteria style restaurant with pizza, sandwiches, salads, bbq and…..drumroll…. hotdogs! But these were not just any hot dogs, they were topped with BBQ and Coleslaw. Come on! How do you say no to that!?

It was just funny because out of all of the choices of food, we were both drawn to the hotdog and each ended up getting one. They were certainly tasty and I think I might try my own rendition next time we cook them on the grill. That might be a while though, because after 3 hotdogs in one weekend, I think I am good for a while!

Hotdog Número 3 for the Weekend!
