the real happy meal

my mom and dad took michael, my sister and me to miyami, where they cook in front of you and give you a show.  our chef was hilarious and the food was so good.  the shrimp sauce would be consumed by me every day if it were not triple my recommended daily calories.

hey pumpkin



i made michael go to the pumpkin patch with me and be excited about it.  i told him we have to celebrate all the holidays to the full extent our first year being married.  we got a big one to put outside, a small one to put inside with our indian corn stalks and one small one to make into a jack-o-lantern (which i am too embarrassed to even post.)  i did make some spicy pumpkin seeds though, which were tasty.  i looked up bobby flay’s recipe and made do with what i had in the pantry.

lauren’s brother, michael, told us about this place called lupies.  it is sort of a hole in the wall kind of place you would not ever know about unless someone tells you. it was good home cookin kind of food. we had a salad with the good kind of ranch dressing. you know what i am talking about. then i had the chili mac which was just their texas chili (so hot) with spaghetti noodles (the good thick kind) tons of cheddar cheese and cornbread. does not get much better than that. michael had the bbq sandwich, cole slaw and mac and cheese. i highly recommend you try it out.

our new


michael and i have found our new favorite place.  we go way too often, and the best/worst part is, it is open 24/7.  that is great, but so bad because you never have the excuse it is closed.  we always get the lemonade or the strawberry lemonade the days it is offered.  the fresh fruit and pastry tart and the chocolate hazelnut tart are both amazing.  also, the cream cheese and strawberry danish and the cream cheese and strawberry croissant are some of the current favorites.  go to the website here and if you are ever in the neighborhood you should stop by.  i do not think you will regret it, unless you get hooked like us.
