Weird that taco day would be on a Monday, but I’m not one to fight a chance to hit up El Cap.
Fully vaccinated and dining responsibly. This weekend we hit Mekong, a family favorite, and I got busy on a big bowl of phở and a couple of cold ones.
Creeping closer to normalcy.
Closing out Spring Break with some sandwiches and a pitcher at Chiocca’s.
It was, even if only for half an hour, a taste of the Before Times and very welcome.
That snow sky paid off, for a few hours anyway. I hustled out to get a fire started so I could drink some coffee in the snow.
We ended up with about 4 inches. This measurement was after it had been raining/sleeting a bit. It would have been a ton of snow if we’d gotten 5 degrees colder.
That morning coffee was the only time I left the house. I spent the evening working on this miso-marinated flank steak stir fry. It was a tasty but I already know what changes I’m making for next time.
Beer-in-the-snow postscript, because beer and firepits are like “peas and carrots”, as Forrest would say.
Runny eggs over crab cakes don’t photograph well, but goddamn are they tasty.
If the bagel was better it would be the front-runner for meal of the year.
My blogging efforts this year have been an effort to retake my posts from the Facebook Social Media Industrial Complex.
Food posts are a staple of my social media posts but it feels weird putting them here on the blog.
It’s not really any different from drinks posts, I guess? All of which is a long-winded way of saying, “look at these steaks”.
Fooling around with video shot from my phone in the car holder. I’m sure there is a non-youtube option for presenting the videos but I haven’t figured that out yet.
Mr. Submarine is one of these old-style Richmond sandwich shops that fell under the radar when we became a “foodie town”. The dedicated customers never left but it looks like a place that time forgot (and almost ran over judging by the mangled tables in front).
Some of the tennis guys were hyping this place, and I had never been, so I gave it a run for lunch.
I went with the Club Sub and the Chicken Parm. I didn’t toast the Club, which might have been a mistake. Both subs were plenty big. The fries were fine. I’ll re-run the Club next time but toasted and I’ll see how the Steak and Cheese is.
