A Manhattan and goldfish. This is how I started my weekend. Thursday’s the new Friday right?
It’s been such a week of ups and downs. I’m super bummed that I wasn’t able to post every day this week. Someone needs to eat out more! I am going to Swizzler for lunch again today for another hot dog. I’m pretty excited.
My new hot dog craving has inspired me to make my own pretzel dogs. I can see it now, dipping it in brown mustard or cheese sauce. Yum…..
A friend of mine also challenged me to make something called a Hot Brown that originated in Louisville, Kentucky. It sounds to me like a deconstructed croque monsieur. It’s an open-faced baked sandwich with smoked turkey, mornay sauce, parmesan cheese, and bacon. Ok, maybe it isn’t so much like the croque. I just can’t think of any other sandwich with a cream sauce. Whatever it is, it sounds pretty awesome and I want it. Now.
Between the hot dog and this amazing sounding high-calorie sandwich, I will spend the rest of the weekend, cleaning and try to burn a few calories. Time to get the bike finally tuned up for a little fall bike riding. Or maybe I will go to the museum. I need so see something pretty.
