It’s no secret that TB and I like to go out to eat. We have really been trying to rein it in (for our wallets and our waistlines) but sometimes… it just happens. TB has been gearing up to go out of town to Cooperstown, New York and eating at home just didn’t really take place. The good thing, though, was that we basically traveled the globe with our food this week:
Tuesday we had lunch at our place, Izumi, in Woodstock. We split a chicken hibachi meal, a drunken tiger roll, and another roll that was fantastic.
Tuesday dinner was at our favorite Mexican restaurant (okay I’m starting to realize we really like what we like), Las Palmas. We took his sister out to Mexican for lunch recently and I discovered the amazingness that is chile rellenos. OHHHH my gosh I am obsessed. I am now ordering anything and everything with pablano peppers included in the meal. I need to learn how to make these:
Wednesday we went a little off our usual beaten path for Nik’s. The actual establishment was… interesting but the food was OUT.OF.CONTROL. Like, I could eat that lunch every day of my life and be very very happy (and very very fat). The sauce is what makes this meal especially fantastic. I wish I was eating this right now.
Wednesday night we had family dinner night with TB’s mom and sister. TB’s family makes these amazing Ukranian meatballs/meat patties they call “snetzies”, but I haven’t been able to find anything under that name on the internet. The closest thing we found are called sichenyky, which I guess could end up being called snetzies. They were really yummy! They basically tasted like big ole meatballs, which I loved.
Thursday was our last dinner together for 4 days, so we wanted it to be special. 🙂 We kinda sorta recreated our first date by going to Ippolitos. Hang out with me long enough and you’ll realize how much I love this place (I’ve blogged about Ipps before) and I always get the same thing. A special caught my eye though, and I ended up falling in love with this lobster ravioli dish. HELLO chipotle cream sauce and shrimp on top. I really don’t think I could have asked for a more fantastic meal with my best friend.
