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!

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.

Tiny burgers. That’s all they are. Tiny burgers with weird sauce and you aren’t quite sure whether or not they are good and you sort of wish you got a real burger instead of sliders and you wonder why they are called sliders, which is a better word for a wet fart, and then you order another beer because they are a little dry and bland. Rock Bottom, I do not think I will get these again. And call it Kobe beef all you want, Rock Bottom, but all that translates to in this circumstances is regular hamburger. The delicacy of Kobe beef is lost under all the other stuff.

I saw these at the Grand Mart in Centreville, VA, near where I live. I can only imagine people eat these, but I do not know how until I looked online. Apparently you can use these for flavoring other stuff, or for making into soup or stew. It seems like the same idea as putting ham hocks in soup. Good flavor, little meat.
Have you ever eaten beef feet? How do you like to make them?

It’s Valentine’s Day and I bought these wieners as a special treat for Beautiful Fiancee and me. She is trying to live a sugar-free life (other than my sweetness, of course), and often can’t find hot dogs or other sausages that do not contain some sort of sugar. Go check it out – your favorite sausage very likely has sugar. No joke.
These hot dogs were kind of expensive. For six wieners I paid $6.99. That goes beyond my normal $1 per hot dog rule, but splurging is what Valentine’s Day is all about. Apparently it is also all about three-meat wieners. Beef and pork with a lamb casing – that qualifies as a hat trick in my book.
Happy Valentine’s Day, Beautiful Fiancee. You are the love of my life!
