I had lunch with a lovely woman from Instagram. She follows me and lives in Arizona but was visiting her son and his family and wanted to meet up – if my schedule allows, I almost always say yes!
We went to The Dearborn, which has one of my top 5 burgers in the city. Isn’t that burger glorious?! But I didn’t get that – that was a photo from a previous visit.
I didn’t realize they had mussels on their menu – these are pan fried mussels in an Indian curry sauce and it’s stunning – I could literally take a bath in that broth. I had crunchy bread for dipping. So good!
I never used to like brussels sprouts, but now I love them! I know my Mother in Law would be so happy to hear that 😀 These are crispy sprouts with Parmesan cheese in a champagne vinaigrette with pepitas. So good.
I thought I took a picture of Dawn’s shrimp and grits, but she had never had grits before and loved them. Thanks again for meeting me Dawn!
I must have been having burger envy because I felt like a burger for dinner last night. This one is a bit healthier than the one above though. I used a tablespoon of this Alouette cheddar to make a mini juicy lucy – delish!
This really isn’t much of a recipe – I took 4 ounces of ground sirloin and divided it and half. Placed the cheese on one side, put the other patty on top, and pinched the sides to keep the cheese in.
I had a baked potato in the fridge so I cut it into steak fries and put them in the air fryer for about 7 minutes, and then threw in some of the leftover sprouts from lunch the last two minutes.
Oh, and did I mention that I seasoned my burger with Dak’s steakhouse seasoning?! I am not sure I’ve talked about my love of mustard seeds for a few days. Don’t forget you can get 10% off your Dak’s order by using the discount code of Bizzy10.
This was a 9 point dinner and super filling.
Two more workdays until the weekend – we can make it! Happy Thursday, make it a great day!
