Popping in to say hi on this lovely Thursday morning! I have a few meals to share – including a fun fall tasting at World of Beer!
I’ve been using my phone for my round-up of meals for a while now and just recently realized how much better my 5D is (duh!!!) I’m trying to make more of an effort like I used to in the olden days now that Mazen is content during meal times. The above meal was a recent lunch of salad greens, blue cheese and leftover squash plus hickory smoked olive oil and Carolina flake salt. No Bull Burger on top!
Next up – whipped banana egg oatmeal with peanut butter globbed on top. Plus cinnamon, vanilla and chia seeds inside.
Another salad lunch – greens with olive oil and salt, carrots, a sardine, feta cheese and a yogurt on the side. Also a few peanut butter carrots from Mazen’s plate!
Pancakes with almond butter drizzle on top –
Dinner at Sarah’s house – smoked turkey quinoa salads and vino
Roasted salmon and blue cheese vegetables (and a glimpse of Mazen’s deconstructed version!)
And finally – Matt and I were invited to come in to our local World of Beer location for a fall tasting menu experience.
I am up for trying as many foods as possible in my lifetime!
We got to sample their Fall Plates & Pints menu, which featured several new dishes for fall and beer pairings to go with.
Our first stop were the Dogfish Head Meatloaf Sliders. They were covered in an amazing sauce made with the Dogfish Head Indian Brown Ale. (I pulled off the onions but loved the rest!)
Next up the Pimento Cheese Board, which I was all over! Their pimento cheese was whipped and creamy – thumbs up!!
So good spread on garlicky toast –
Round three was the Southwest Skillet Cornbread which came with greens on top. The cornbread had sweet corn and roasted peppers embedded throughout and came with a chili lime honey butter on the side. We brought most of this home to have the next day!
The Habanero Pumpkin Spice Wings were right up Matt’s alley! The pumpkin spices were awesome, but these were SO SPICY!! I could barely handle one 🙂 Matt loved them!
And finally, we shared the Colorado Chili made with beef, chorizo and red beans. It paired well with a smoky dark beer from Blue Mountain!
I can’t recall the names of all the beers on our sampler, but they spanned a vast variety of styles – from IPAs to brown ales – and a pumpkin!
And finally the grande finale – the Belgian Waffle S’mores!!!!!!
GUYS – these were incredible!! Layers of waffle, marshmallow and chocolate with a graham cracker dusting on top. Paired so well with a roasted beer too!
