Apologies for the neglect…
But the fiance and I have been extremely busy, as we’re about one week away from moving to SEATTLE! So naturally, we’ve been busy prepping for the move (which comes on top of wedding planning. oy!).
We’re really excited for the change of scenery, though, and especially the incredible food scene in the Pacific Northwest! Expect lots of yummy pics in the near future!
Dinner 1/29/2014: Schnipper’s, 620 8th Avenue, Manhattan
Me: Sloppy joe.
The fiance: Green chile cheeseburger.
Shared: Thick cut onion rings.
The sloppy joe holds a special place in my heart, since I have fond memories of eating many a Manwich as a kid. As you can see, Schnipper’s definitely goes for the sloppy factor. Very flavorful and juicy. The fiance loved his burger with roasted poblanos. The onion rings were amazing… huge, perfectly fried outer layer, and a kickass chipotle-ranch dipping sauce. $7.50 sloppy joe, $9.50 cheeseburger, $4.69 onion rings w/sauce.
Breakfast 1/27/2014: Fuel Cafe, 45 Village Run Circle, Snowmass Village, CO
The fiance: Californian burrito.
Another day, another breakfast burrito. This one was filled with scrambled eggs, potatoes, cheddar cheese, avocado, cilantro, sour cream, and fresh tomato salsa. The fiance added some ham, too. $6.59.
Lunch 1/26/2014: 520 Grill, 520 East Cooper Avenue, Aspen, CO
Me: Hot Digger beef dog.
The fiance: Wahoo fish tacos.
He raved about the fish tacos and was happily stuffed. I wasn’t that hungry, so I just got the cheapest thing on the menu. $10.29 wahoo tacos, $4.80 hot dog.
Dinner 1/25/2014: Smoke Modern Barbeque, 241 Harris Street, Basalt, CO
Me: Mac and cheese with burnt ends.
The fiance: Smoked beef brisket.
One of the richest mac and cheese dishes I’ve ever had. Burnt ends?! Holy cow. The fiance enjoyed his brisket but raved about the Smokin’ Slaw. $9.95 mac and cheese, $14.95 brisket.
Breakfast 1/25/2014: The Big Wrap, 520 E. Durant Avenue, Ste. 101, Aspen, CO
Each: Breakfast burrito with scrambled eggs, bacon, potatoes, chorizo, cheese, salsa, and pinto beans.
This delicious monstrosity kept us stuffed for hours. And only $5! Proof that not everything in Aspen is ridiculously expensive!
Dinner 1/24/2014: The Cherry Cricket, 2641 E. 2nd Ave, Denver, CO
Me: Little cricket burger (1/4 pound) with bacon and peanut butter.
The fiance: Little cricket burger with smoked cheddar, bacon, and guacamole.
Shared: Half basket of frings.
So incredibly satisfying after being on a plane for a few hours. $8.50 peanut butter burger, $9.50 guac burger, $4 frings.
