On the Town: May the odds be ever in your favor...

This past weekend my husband and I went to see “The Hunger Games” (which was crazy awesome, but that’s not what this post is about :).  We went to the Alamo Drafthouse and they have menu specials they are featuring during the run of the film.  I had taken note of them before we went to the show, and I knew I wanted to try the Lamb Stew with Dried Plums.  I should mention - my husband and I were pescetarian from 1998-2011 and I’ve only recently discovered that I love lamb.  In fact, I plan on trying a recipe for a spring dinner I’m having in a couple of weeks.  So I was very excited to try the stew.  In a bread bowl no less.  Since I also try to be mindful of what I eat calorically, I had thought that I would eat the stew and maybe a couple of pieces of the bread bowl.  But nope.  I ate every. last. bite.  It was so amazingly good - rich and hearty and sweet.  Everything I would want in a stew.  And the bread bowl, once it soaked up all the broth... there was no turning back.  It was definitely worth every single calorie.

I would like to go back at some point to try one of the other items - Strawberry Upside Down Cake.  I was too full after the stew to try it, but it also sounds pretty yummy.


  1. You have to do a post about why you decided to start eating meat again!

    Love the blog.
