In The Month of April….

Well it certainly has been such a long time! Since my last post in March, everything has happened so suddenly that I really had no time to play catch up on here. But here I am now, two months later. There is so much to fill you in that this will be one mass post of everything that has happened in April. Stay tuned…

Curry Rice and Miso Udon.

When it comes to having food for the house, Kyle and I tend to be bad at managing it. Whether our fridge is on the verge of being bare empty or we overstock so much that we lose money from expiration dates, there is never an equal balance. The one thing I do like about closely expired foods is that I can experiment with recipes. The menu two nights ago happened to be curry over rice with miso udon.

Blue House Korean BBQ.

A year of waiting and the Korean BBQ place near our house finally opened up a month ago.

Now if you recall a post I made a few months ago, I did give a bad review for Oz, but I figured since Oz was bad timing and that was only the first time trying out Korean BBQ that I would give it a second chance. Plus it’s super close by, so we definitely had to go.

Burgers and Brew.

Some week ago, Kyle got off work pretty late and we were pretty hungry. It was around 10:30 at this point and most places we even considered closes at 9 unless we wanted fast food. I then remembered of a burger joint my coworkers mentioned a while back that stays open until late. I looked it up and they were open until midnight. Score. We then decided to give Burgers and Brew a try.

There’s a new sandwich place that opened up just down the street from us a couple months and we had yet to give it a try until a few days ago.

They specialize in Cheese Steaks, but they do have other variety of sandwiches and salads if you’re not feeling too Philly enough, or you can use grilled chicken instead as your cheese steak.

How your meal is served.

I would’ve gave in to trying one of their cheese steaks as being a first timer, but I settled with a hot veggie sandwich. I give an A+ on their bread – I love some soft white bread that can easily soak up some flavor. I am a part of the 5% of people that like “soggy” bread. The sandwich as a whole, however, was alright. It was really just heated up veggies with some cheese melted into a bun – something I could’ve easily made at home. I did put some of their “fry sauce” in it, until their special sauce was just thousand island without the chunks.

Kyle got the cheese steak I did look at: the Bacon Cheddar Cheese Steak. I did take a bite of it to try and it was pretty good. Packed with different flavors along with their awesome bread – I could eat that all day if I liked meat like that.

Overall, not a bad place to grab a cheese steak every once in a while if you’re into that sort of thing.
I will come back to try their tuna sandwich and their grilled cheese. If they both are bomb, they won my heart lol.

Easter 2016.

Welcome to Lexi’s Easter Brunch, part two – were I make a meal for one day and probably bought too much food to cook in time before it goes bad.

It was also a chance to use an app I downloaded recently for once.

This year’s menu consists of:

1. Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins.
Kyle likes to buy bananas to eat in the mornings, but never eats them. So they just sit on the counter and rot. A waste of money. I thought I could help with that problem by making some banana bread… until I realized that I don’t have a bread pan, so the next best idea was to make muffins. Then I also remembered that we have chocolate chips in our freezer. This was also a recipe made from scratch, so I started on making these first. Super moist and you can taste all the flavorings of the banana and chocolate. Score.

2. Bacon Wrapped Mushrooms.
For a side, I wanted again to make something rather than just bacon. I had also bought a pack of mushrooms because I love mushrooms, and it gave me an idea. Looked up a simple recipe and completed all three steps. The problem I had was that I only have one oven and it’s baking my muffins at this point, so I had to use my toaster oven to bake it off. I was worried about the bacon not being cooked, but my side mushrooms burning. Kyle tells me that I could’ve cooked them a little longer, but it was still good nonetheless.

3. Asparagus and Spinach Fritatta.
I asked Kyle what he would want for the main dish and he said for me to make a fritatta… which was upsetting since I made one last year. I settled with it and then asked what he would like in it. He’s been on a spinach and asparagus kick lately, so that was a stupid question on my part. I chopped up the asparagus, sauteed them with some baby spinach, and then poured my egg mixture over. Cooked on the stove, then oven, and then broiled for 3 minutes, topping it off with some shredded cheddar. This one was easier to make because I used my dad’s cast iron rather than just a pan.

The menu wasn’t as big as last years, but it was definitely better now that I’ve been cooking meals and getting better at time management.

Plate and serve and enjoy.

(For my vegetarian ass haha)
