Isn't that what all of life should be? I'm already loving this trip. On the way up I stopped at Sonic since I've been wanting some for 3 months and they shut down BOTH of the Sonics in Gainesville about 2 weeks before I got there. CONSPIRACY!!!! Conspiracy I say!!! So I stopped (or paused) there to get some food (and limeade) and go. Yum-ish. The poor service didn't exactly assist and I got fries instead of the tater tots I ordered. But whatever. I knew it was PAPPADEAUX that night!
Wow... kids... who knew rappers knew the hot restaurants? Not me. That's how I first heard about it. In that Lil Flip song years ago but we all know how food obsessed I am. I heard about it, asked my New Orleans homies and haven't forgotten it. Then Vanessa started blogging about it. SO GLAD I WENT!! I started with fantastic lobster bisque. I LOVE lobster bisque and it was BANGIN!! Then I had saville sauce-- pico de gallo (which means the "rooster's beak") with crawfish over blackened mahi mahi with a side of dirty rice. It was MAHVELOUS, dahlings! I picked something for Rah with I think blackened gulf filet with sauteed shrimp, crawfish, mushrooms, spinach and Monterrey Jack cheese. It was yum-o, too! Oh man. Love.
Then we came back to his place. I have absolutely found some clothes ready for extinction. Fubu OUT!! No sir. You will not be known as my boyfriend and wear these clothes. Not gonna happen. We also watched some tv. Oh tv. I love you. I've never seen the first episode of Grey's so I watched that last night. More of the season coming up! Right now I'm watching "Boy Meets Grill." Dog, he went to a cheese shop. No. A CHEESE SHOP!! Do you know how a feel about cheese!?!? He's using a blowtorch to toast goat cheese right now. I can't. I need food.
Bobby Flay just said "A lot of people have salt-free diets. I say, 'Hey, you'll die from something else. Eat salt.'" Loves it. This show is making me STARVING right now! And you know it doesn't help that I'm talking about food. I think I'm going to go to Mellow Mushroom since I've never been, it's nearby and I can come back and watch MORE FOOD NETWORK!!! Tonight I think we're going to Eclipse di Luna. Tomorrow we're going to lunch at Ray's in the City WITH JOY, then Atlantic Station for dinner at Rosa Mexicano. CAN'T WAIT!! Has anyone ever had ricotta as dessert? Bobby's doing that right now with marmalade on top and pine nuts. Oh yeah for dessert tomorrow, pumpkin cheesecake from Cheesecake Bistro. CAN'T WAIT!!!! I don't see pumpkin or key lime cheesecake on there but hopefully that's just because pumpkin cheesecake is seasonal.
Just flipped over to C-SPAN and this old white guy just talked about how amazing Michelle Obama is and how his wife can hardly wait to see those little girls in the white house. ME TOO AND ME EITHER!!! WHEEEEE!! I get so excited when I see white people losing their minds over that family. I know it's not PC for me to say that but I am well-aware that some of their parents and grandparents fought hard against integration and for blacks to have the right to vote. Some of their great-grandparents and great-great grandparents owned slaves. And today they are campaigning for and loving a black man so much they have selected him to be his next president. That is AWESOME!!
