You’ve heard about my delicious conquests in Detroit. But let’s get down to the real point, I’ve been eating out for 10+ days and it’s taking a toll on me. I’ve been trying to be healthy and eating most salads for lunch and yogurt/cereal or oatmeal for breakfast but there has been a lot of snacking between – a lot of sodium , and yes, free concierge level = LOTS of free snacking, cheese, desserts, chips, etc…. by the end of the week I had gained about 6lbs… and it’s been almost a week after and I’ve only lost half of that. Haha. Need to get in shape for Miami next weekend….
I got a nice fruit plate by the pool while W went to the barbershop to get a haircut. He had a freaking afro – awesome, but I guess only awesome for me haha he hated it. We relaxed and lounged the whole day…. dinner was BURGER! Why?
I needed to be apart of this Bourbon Steak burger month! And while I’m insanely jealous looking at Chef Adam Sobel’s burgers for the one in DC [like this pastrami and double double OMG]….. the one they were offering her in Detroit this week was a SPICY one, which OBVIOUSLY caught my eye.
Cornbread with a Maple Bourbon Butter
W has had their cornbread and butter so much he wouldn’t even touch it haha.. but I had a nice corner piece smooooothered in butter. MMMM butter makes everything better!
Trio of Duck Fat Fries
Rosemary w/ Ketchup, SourCream&Onion and Paprika [?]with BBQ
The last ones were my favorite. I eat rosemary frites way too much. They were also cold, the others weren’t. Weird huh? And I thought whilst eating these fries, so many places have duck fat fries now… they’re not so fun and I can’t really tell the difference anymore. Time to start frying fries in bacon grease. YOU HEARD IT HERE FIRST! MY IDEA!
Dinner is SERVED!
W’s steak! :] He was busy watching the Caps-Rangers Hockey Game
W’s Mashed Potatoes – there was a lot of goodies in it.. MMM
My Fire Alarm Beef Burger
Pepper Jack, Jalapenos, Harrisa Aioli, Grilled Onions
I got it rare, obviously and it was SUPER raw. Haha, it wasn’t too bad, it wasn’t completely balanced in flavor tho… some bites were better than others. There were a few bites that tasted… gamey? I duno maybe the beef wasn’t that fresh? I love raw beef but some bites were meh and I had huge chunks of cracked peppercorn, one got stuck in my teef. I wanted more bang for my buck – more spice :[ Kinda disappointed. No need for a fire alarm.... I did like the fluffy bun tho. Buns are VERY important in making a good burger but the meat is the most important and it just didn't cut it for me. I didn't want to make a big deal out of it so I stuck to fries, my delicious glass of Rioja and politely ate half and took the rest back to the room.
I got really hungry later...... and while usually I'd inhale burgers and leftovers like crazy....
I did that to a bag of buttery popcorn instead :]
I left the next morning….
A nice cold Blue Moon with orange slice..
Breakfast of champions
And then this for the airplane ride :] I finally got my banana for my horrible foot cramps!!!
And as soon as I got home I ordered me some sushiiiiiii and sashimi from Fugakyu Cafe <3 WOOOOO – been craving like WHOA
