Hat Trick at Mongolian Hot Pot

December 12, 2016 § Leave a comment

Such delicious food! I took my baby out to Little Sheep Mongolian Hot Pot in Falls Church, VA and we scored the ultimate hat trick – beef, pork, and TWO kinds of lamb. They bring you a pot of soup broth and you order the meat, seafood, and veggies you want. Put them in the soup pot and let them cook away.

If you live near here, go check this place out in the Eden Center. You will love it!

Terrifying? Yes. Delicious? Probably. Thanks, Serious Eats, for scaring the crap out of us with deli meats.


Foie Gras

A very beautiful woman convinced me to try this foie gras recently. I have never liked liver, but what do you say to a hottie with foie gras? Of course I tried it. Tasted like crap. Never again.

But the beautiful woman became my new girlfriend. Yep, I fired the wife last year due to poor performance. That’s why you fire people, right? Anyway. Adieu. Hello, new beautiful girlfriend.

Ox Penis

That’s one heck of a penis. And at $9.99 per pound, they sure are proud of it. Proud of that monstrous Ox penis right there in the freezer section, in front of God and everyone.

For goodness sake, would you cover up?

Steak, chicken and pork. A hat trick from Don Chido’s in San Diego. Pretty damned good. 

Corned Beef for St. Patrick’s Day

It’s that time of year again. Corned beef, boiled cabbage and potatoes, and maybe some good Irish beer. It gets me back to my poor, miserable Irish roots – the Murphy family, who came over from Cork and apparently brought recipes for boiled veggies and meat, which have been passed down over the ages on packages of corned beef. And that brings us to today and to me, a wayward son of Ireland, part of the Irish diaspora, full of joy and delicious food.

Decorative Bacon

Beautiful Wife and I went to Okra’s, a New Orleans style restaurant in Manassas, Virginia. We got the Cajun deviled eggs as an appetizer and were delighted by the heat level, which is not overpowering but definitely stays with you. The best part was the decorative bacon on top.

Two words: Daddy like!
