Astor Burger & Fries

Astor Mediterranean of Adams Morgan is one of our favorite neighborhood places to eat. It has great food and it’s inexpensive. It’s definitely in my top 5 spots for neighborhood cheap eats. And although I don’t eat red meat, Bae does and absolutely loves the Astor Burger! I usually eat half of his fries because they are so light and crispy. There is so much on their menu to enjoy. I recommend the Eggplant Parmesan Panini, it’s sooo delicious. Also the Veggie Pizza and the White Pizza are some of my favorites.

Jasmine Mar-TEA-ni at Purple Patch

It’s a great thing when you get to go to Happy Hour to benefit a great cause!

Purple Patch hosts a happy hour that’s a benefit for Bancroft Elementary School. One of my favorite couples in the world has their kids enrolled at Bancroft so to know that I’m helping to support their little ones school is awesome! The fist time I came here I had the most amazing drink with ginger root and vodka… and I do mean AMAZING. This time I was sad to see it was no longer on the menu. But I found this wonder MarTEAni made Jasmine Tea Flavored Vodka, Lemon Juice and Honey syrup. YES HONEY! It was EVERYTHING! I also had the Chicken Adobo Sliders (not pictured) and they were divine (singing Deeeeee-viiiiine).

So if and when you’re in DC, please come on up to my neighborhood to check out Purple Patch. You won’t be disappointed.

Evol Portabella & Goat Cheese Ravioli

What’s for dinner?

When the hubster is at work and you don’t feel like cooking for “ONE”, it sounds like the kind of night for a TV Dinner. But this ain’t your mother’s generation of TV dinners. No Honey! This is Evol’s Portabella & Goat Cheese Ravioli!

Since we have gone vegetarian again (we’ve gone vegetarian so many times in our household) we have been pretty selective in what we keep in our refrigerator. But this has been a winner. It’s conveniently available at Target (and we go there a lot). It’s super inexpensive (under $4.00). It’s pretty filling! So if you’re looking for a tasty, vegetarian, TV dinner because you are too lazy to cook (like me) or maybe you’re just looking for something quick, I suggest you try this one.

It’s yummy and good for the tummy!
