Crab. Lobster. Yellowfin Tuna. Tilapia.

Crab. Lobster. Yellowfin Tuna. Tilapia.

Friday was not a good day for me to forget to bring my camera to Happy Hour. Let’s just say I ate some pretty great food. Crab. Lobster. Yellowfin Tuna. Tilapia. I’ll attempt to document the food highlights of the evening with these iPhone pics. Happy Hour started at The Chop House. Who would’ve thought, … Continue reading

Heat Wave

Heat Wave

Tonight’s dinner blog post is brought to you courtesy of the heat wave, which caused a power outage, which caused me to go downtown for dinner tonight, which caused me to snap Instagram pics for the blog. When the huz and I arrived home with no power in this 100 F degree weather, we had … Continue reading

Northwest Salmon Salad

Northwest Salmon Salad

Summer makes me happy. Especially when one of my Tuesday work tasks is to sit outside for 45 minutes directing people where to go. Yeeeah, boi. Just enjoying that view, that sun, those 80 degrees. After a somewhat unconventional work day, I headed home (my commute traffic has been terrible lately!), and tossed together this … Continue reading

Sunday = Grill Day

Sunday = Grill Day

Remember last week when I mentioned how much we enjoyed the chicken we made on the grill? The boneless skinless chicken breast tenderloins in mesquite marinade? Well, we did. So we made them again this Sunday. Is this your perfect easy summer meal, or what? Grilled corn with Old Bay seasoning, mesquite grilled chicken, and … Continue reading

Love Bear

Love Bear

Thanks again to Groupon, the huz and I had a little Saturday day-date planned this weekend. First stop: Chelsea, Michigan. Neither of us had been to this nearby city before, but we love checking out new towns. Our somewhat random lunch choice was Cleary’s Pub on Main Street. [Please excuse the poor lighting.] Usually I … Continue reading

Summer Solstice Week

Summer Solstice Week

I believe I owe you a weekly recap, don’t I? I’ve been a little behind in reporting my noms, but don’t worry, I’ve been snapping pics all week. Tuesday I again went to Bar Louie for Happy Hour and $1 burger specials with a few friends and co-workers. I always rock a pair of sandwiches … Continue reading

Pimiento Cheese BLTs

Pimiento Cheese BLTs

Let me tell you how to make a really awesome dinner that your husband/wife/significant other/roommate/self will love. Well, if he/she/they/you like cheese. And bacon. But if he/she/you/they/you DON’T like cheese or bacon, you’re pretty much reading the wrong blog here, kids. So cutting to the chase, pimiento cheese is pretty awesome right? You’ve had it? … Continue reading

Living the Good Life

Living the Good Life

I’ve been living well the last week or two, let me tell you. My life has been full of good food, good drinks, good peeps. This weekend was just the same. On Saturday I went to a family gathering at my aunt and uncle’s house. We gathered to visit with my aunt and cousin who … Continue reading

Restaurant Week: June 2012-Logan

Restaurant Week: June 2012-Logan

At the top of my “restaurants-to-try” list in Ann Arbor has been Logan. (That’s also my cute nephew’s name!) I stalked the online reservation system for weeks leading up to Ann Arbor Restaurant Week to get my 7:00 PM reservation on Friday night. Uh, yeah. MegNeedsALife. Friday after work we enjoyed a little happy hour-for-two … Continue reading

Restaurant Week: June 2012–Pacific Rim

Restaurant Week: June 2012–Pacific Rim

Having made my reservation several weeks in advance, I was pretty pumped for dinner at Pacific Rim this past week. This is a restaurant about which I have heard many positive remarks, and have been wanting to try for quite some time. The steep prices and lack of special occasions calling for that level of … Continue reading
